Chuy’s Opens May 10th

PRESS RELEASE – Chuy’s Tex-Mex Restaurant will open its first Tallahassee location May 10, 2016. The iconic restaurant known for its affordable, authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, margaritas made with fresh-squeezed lime juice and quirky environment will be opening at 904 E. Lafayette St.  

For more than 30 years, Chuy’s has been committed to providing made-from-scratch Tex-Mex cuisine using only the freshest ingredients.

“We’re so excited to bring Chuy’s to Tallahassee,” said Robert Newell, local Owner and Operator for Chuy’s Tallahassee. “We’re looking forward to sharing Chuy’s passion for food and fun with this great community.” 

Straight from the home of Tex-Mex – Austin, Texas – Chuy’s menu includes hand-rolled tortillas cooked fresh all day on a traditional comal in the dining room and salsa fresca made every hour. It also showcases dishes made from authentic recipes found in South Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns such as El Paso. Chuy’s serves up homemade signature sauces, ranging from the mild Tomatillo Sauce to their spicy Hatch Green Chile sauce.

Diners can expect a vibrant atmosphere complete with an Elvis Shrine, the La Chihuahua Bar featuring framed pictures of local dogs, a “school” of hand-carved wooden fish, metal palm trees and a hubcap-covered ceiling. Each of Chuy’ssignature decorations has a unique story.

In addition to its famous food and eclectic atmosphere, a cornerstone of the Chuy’s philosophy is to give back to the local community. Chuy’s will raise money for a local children’s charity during its grand opening events.

Chuy’s will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. On weekdays from 4-7 p.m., the restaurant will offer up happy hour drink specials and the fully-loaded “nacho car,” a free, unlimited, build-your-own nacho station housed in the trunk of an antique car with chips, salsa, queso, ground sirloin and more.


Founded in Austin, Texas, in 1982, Chuy’s serves authentic, affordable Tex-Mex fare made to order from fresh ingredients in an atmosphere full of fun and attitude. Chuy’s has earned the reputation across Texas and throughout the Southeast for being the most fun and friendly spot to enjoy real Tex-Mex food at a great price.
