If I could tell you one thing...get the queso! The service was good, and the food was even better. Will definitely comeback!!

Great tex Mex. We got the steak burrito, chika chika boom boom and fries fish tacos and they were all very very good. Won't be disappointed. Might have to wait a little for a seat, but they have a nice air conditioned wait area and a chip and salsa bar that is very good. My little kids loved it too

I ordered one of the specials they had that day which was chicken enchiladas with an avocado and green chile sauce. It was super delicious! I also tried some of the Chuychanga from a friend's dish which was great as well! Definitely coming back soon!

Very funky restaurant and even though before noon, very busy! Outside seating was 2 tables on road but inside had several eating locations. Everyone was friendly, food was plentiful and drinks cold! We have met several locals and everyone has been friendly and helpful!

They have tons of parking and a huge happy hour area where you can get drinks or have some appetizers while you wait for a table. Great place for after work drinks, family dinner, or even just lunch. You can also get anything to go and take it over to the park which is nice in the spring/summer.

We had the amazing jalapeño ranch, chips & salsa to start. And LOVED the steak burrito. Big enough for 2! Enjoyed here! I'll be back!

I've only had the Chuy's special so I'll just say that it's great! Love the blue corn tortillas and shredded chicken. Queso is one of the best in town

Editorial review from Citysearch

The food is amazing! The waiting time for a table is not so great. The restaurant is very small, so it feels like a house. Parking is limited and with a weird layout. Staff is always happy and ready to take orders. In my opinion it could use some live music and more sitting space.

austin classic

I love the food and the atmosphere is cool. It is austin cool before all the crazy hipsters came to town. I love it.. Grab a swirl margarita and some beef fajitas and life is good. oh and I love the people watching..

Best Chile Rellenos in Texas!

Chuys on Barton Springs is my favorite location, and I usually order the Cheese Chile Relleno cause its so good!
Personally I can't get enough of their green sauce, so I always substitute the ranchero sauce for green, although both are good. The service has always been fast, even though its usually crowded when I go there, and have to wait for a table. But the wait time is never as long as they tell you, and theres a great salsa a chip bar to get you started. I've also really enjoyed the stuffed sopapilla and the burrito as big as your face. LOVE Chuys atmosphere and its great for people watching.

I didn't order the Chewy Chonga!

Ok, so I stroll up to Chuy's in my cool Austinite ride after a long day of telling hot chicks to keep their hands off my beautiful car. (I hate oily finger prints on my waxed 7 layer, laquer paint job on my 74' Pantera) I order one of my favorite comfort food dishes, 'The Chimichonga""! I've had it a hundred times, a hundred ways and I know when a Chimi is done to perfection! After ordering the waitress finally brings me my order but at 10 feet from the table I could see trouble approaching. My heart sank, my stomach turned. My Chimi was all brown from over cooking. It reminded me of a big ape turd I had seen in a zoo once as a child and it scared the hell outa me! This was like a bad flash back for sure. The waitress left and I hesitantly cut into the thing. It made a sound I've never heard before! It was hard and it crunched like no Chimi should ever crunch. The ends are usually a little harder because of the thickness but shouldn't be brick hard. She came back later and asked if everything was ok and I told her no, everything was not ok. I told her my Chimichanga was way over cooked and she looked at me and said, ""OMG, That's over cooked!"" That's when the ugly truth sunk in. If I'm not a chef and I know what a good chimichanga should look like, and the waitress knows also, then why did the one person who should definitely know, (THE CHEF), send out a burned chimichanga and why didn't the waitress who knew it was over cooked bring it to me instead of tell them it's not fit for consumption, unless you're a dog. Well, that did it for me. You pay good money and they knowingly bring you pooh. Brown, crunchy, ape pooh. As if they're hurting for money, please.

great mexican

I have been a fan of this resturant since I first moved into Austin about 14 years ago. It is a simple resturant with no airs, great food, and good service. I have never been disappointed in my meal or my drink. With all these new places opening up, it is good to know that the old staples still exist and have far better food then they ever will - no one can compete with chuys

LOVE Chuy's!

I wish they would clean their window sills and blinds, but apart from that we are never disappointed at Chuy's.
This was the first time at this location. As always the food was plentiful and hot.
The jalapeno ranch dip is totally addictive as well as the queso. My favorite dish ever is the deluxe chicken enchiladas which is always filled liberally with good white meat chicken.
Waitress was a little ditsy, but hey - it's Austin! :)
