More restaurant choices by the airport: Chuy's opens third Orlando location
Chuy’s, the Austin-based restaurant famous for its authentic and crave-able Tex-Mex menu, today officially opened its doors of their newest Central Florida location. The restaurant, located at 6688 South Semoran Boulevard near OIA, is Chuy’s third location in Central Florida, joining Chuy’s Kissimmee and Chuy’s I-Shops, located on International Drive.
For more than 30 years, Chuy’s has served made from scratch Tex-Mex favorites that include Stuffed Chile Rellenos, Chicka-Chicka-Boom Enchiladas and Chuy’s famous Big As Yo’ Face Burritos. Flour and corn tortillas are hand-rolled all day on the authentic comal located in the dining room allowing customers to experience the freshness first hand. In addition, distinctive décor surrounds diners – an Elvis shrine, hubcaps on the ceiling and soaring eight-foot tall palm trees, among other eclectic treasures – to make Chuy’s the most fun and friendly restaurant in town. The Chuy’s motto is "If you've seen one Chuy's, you've seen one Chuy's!" because each restaurant’s eclectic décor is unique and no two restaurants are the same.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to grow our presence in Central Florida with the opening of our third location,” said Jose Ortega, Owner/Operator of the new Chuy's. “This community has really responded to our fresh Tex-Mex and incredible service and we’re looking forward to sharing it with more of the locals and tourists alike.”
I stopped by yesterday for a pre-opening event and got my Chuy's on. I'd never tried their famous Elvis Green Chile Fried Chicken, so that was a must for me. Chuy's breads a large chicken breast in crushed Lay's Potato Chips, deep fries it and covers it with a green chile sauce and cheddar cheese. Served with rice and refried beans, I've fallen in love with this hunk a hunk burnin' chicken.
Chuy’s Central Florida restaurants are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner with a weekday happy hour from complete with drink specials and the famous Fully-Loaded Nacho Car, offering a trunk load of FREE chips, salsa, chile con queso, taco meat and more.
