Gordzelik was kind enough to offer me a unique opportunity as a “quality taster.” I was able to taste some of the most famous Chuy’s menu items, including the Elvis Presley Memorial combo, which features three different enchiladas (beef Tex-Mex, chicken Tomatillo and cheese ranchero), a ground sirloin taco, and tostada chips dipped in chile con queso. Yes, I can honestly say that “quality taster” is a job I could get used to.
If you’re in the mood for an adult beverage, you’re in luck. Fruity, frozen margaritas boast fresh flavors with pureed in-house strawberries, lime juice, and mangoes. Those looking for a new favorite drink can order Chuy’s homemade sangria on the rocks - a blend of tequila, red wine, triple sec, fresh fruit juices, and Monin blueberry syrup.
If you’re not sure how to start your first dining experience at Chuy’s, consider stopping in between 4 and 7 p.m. during the week for Chuy’s Happy Hour, which features drink specials and a full nacho “car” with complimentary chips, salsa, beans, beef, and queso. Or, if you’re in more of a takeout mood, Chuy’s full to-go menu will keep your family happy and full.
With a balance of bold, fresh flavors, Chuy’s hits the mark of having hearty high quality food. It’s a must on your dinner “to do” list!
