    Austin is the home to Chuy's, but it was the least favorite out of all the other locations that we've been too. The food just didn't taste as good as it usually it does... I got the stacked enchiladas

    Ask for the creamy jalapeño ranch (complimentary) with your chips and salsa. I also recommend the boom boom enchiladas--just a hint of heat and a lot of delicious!

    With hubcaps, colored lights, and a velvet Elvis, this is Austin-style Tex-Mex at its tacky, funky best. It's almost always busy, but the creamy queso and chips is worth the wait.

    You have to be there for the Green Chile Festival, but it's really spicy! It's too hot for some people, so before you order a big plate, ask the staff if there is a way to try a little of it first.
