It's been said that nothing good comes from someone or something named Chuy. This Tex-Mex restaurant chain nips that adage in the bud. Decorated in bright colors and kitschy send-ups of all things Tex-Mex, the first Chuy's began offering popular favorites with a side of The King-Elvis Presley, that is-in 1982, when Mike Young and John Zapp opened their original location in Austin. Elvis is so revered at Chuy's that annually on January 8 the restaurant celebrates The Pelvis' birthday with a blowout. Can't make it to the party? No problem. The signature Elvis Presley Memorial Combo is available year round. Another signature dish is the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Enchiladas, made with freshly hand-rolled tortillas.
