2706 Westheimer Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-524-1700

Location Description:

Founded in Austin, this is a favorite hangout of young Anglos who like to drink. You can almost always expect a long wait at this noisy, crowded spot, which has colorful decor and a large outdoor patio. The strong suit at Chuy's is the sauces and the ultra-thin, crispy tortilla chips. The creamy jalapeño and Hatch green chile sauce will not be found elsewhere. If you're into "Big As Yo' Face" burritos and combination plates, you'll be at home here.
