J: Have you ever been to a restaurant where they exceed your expectations? I mean everything from cost, taste, service and atmosphere? If you haven’t and you love Tex Mex let me introduce you to “Chuy’s”. This place opened here in Louisville in November I believe and it’s simply amazing! Their thing is, is that they make all of their salsa, sauces, fixin’s and other things fresh that morning from fresh materials. Their tortillas are freshly hand rolled as well! Yes they have folks at the little grill hand rolling tortillas!!

Renee: That’s just because your standard for an excellent Mexican restaurant is that it has to have folks hand rolling tortillas.  You all should have seen him.  He grinned from ear to ear when he saw that.  But J’s right.  Chuy’s is our go to place for eating out when we can’t think of another place immediately.  There is tons of seating but it still fills up quickly during lunch or dinner.  The decor is Vegas meets old person’s house.  My favorite is the Tacos Al Carbon.  It’s basically fajitas but already prepacked in two soft flour (J: hand rolled, fixed that for ya babe) tortillas.  I absolutely love these and I can’t help but eat both of them.  Plus it helps that it’s under $10.  J usually goes for the spicier fare however.

J: You know it! I get the Steak Burrito that’s as big as my head! with the Green Chile Rice and Charro beans! It’s just the right heat! Enough for me to sweat and sniff but really enjoy it. This last time I went I got the Beef Fajitas and Renee can tell you I don’t do the fajitas often but they were good! I had enough to make 5 tacos and oh my goodness I didn’t finish my rice and beans! I have to say this place is amazing and I knew it was when we went on Saturday, came home and was like “We’re going tomorrow”.

Renee: That’s right, we went two days in a row.  Two days!  I don’t think I’ve done that with a restaurant in..well..ever!  The wait staff recognizes us which is slightly embarrassing on my part but the food is too good to pass up.  Whoever decided to open a Chuy’s in Louisville made a great choice.  Now do you see what you all have done?  We give you content about a fabulous Tex Mex restaurant and you make me hungry for more Chuy’s.  Ah well, I must get my fix in the next couple of weeks.  I know I can never go wrong when J asks me what I want to eat and I suggest Chuy’s.  This is clearly our favorite place and has held the top spot for a couple of months.

Service: Good service most of the time.  I’ve had a few duds but overall they are there to fill drinks, fill up our chip basket, and offer dessert.  8 out of 10.

Food Quality: Amazing.  Everything tastes like it’s supposed to and I’ve never had a bad experience.  Can’t rave enough about it.  10 out of 10.

Environment: It’s a little all over the place and it can get a little distracting but it definitely screams fun.  9 out of 10

Cost: Most of the dishes range between $8 and $15.  Very reasonable and definitely easy on the wallet.

Overall: In this case, the sum is greater than the parts.  The overall experience warrants a 10 out of 10.
