If you’re living in Texas and haven’t been to Chuy’s restaurant yet, you’re certainly missing out. What “began as an old abandoned Texas barbeque joint on Barton Springs Road,” according to the company’s website, now has a “cult like following, and [they] maintain the reputation as the most fun and friendly spot to eat authentic Mexican food at a great price.” But what’s the best part? Well, folks, it looks like we’re adding another taste to Addison, because Chuy’s will soon be taking the place of Black Finn – right along Belt Line Rd., near Midway.

Ever since 1982, Chuy’s has been selling “Burritos As Big As Yo’ Face” – in fact, that happens to be a menu favorite – they’ve expanded their stores across the nation, from Texas to Indiana, to Florida and Virginia. Now, after July’s Council Meeting, Chuy’s will expand their Texas territory just a little further, right into the Addison neighborhood. The Town’s website claimed, “The folk’s from Chuy’s will demolish the old building and build a brand new facility with an all new, up-to-code kitchen! Work will begin very soon.”

Addison is a popular location for a variety of business headquarters; that being said, restaurants are an important aspect of the Town’s income and economic success. Chuy’s would be a welcomed addition, especially when you’re surrounded by numerous hungry business employees, a new lunchtime favorite is always a bonus – lunchtime traffic in Addison says it all.

The restaurant has no set date yet for opening, but is estimated to be completed sometime this year. But, I think I speak for all Corridor residents when I say that the Town is excited to see what Chuy’s will offer to the community and what unique environment will surround those choosing to dine in. After all, as the saying goes, “If you’ve see one Chuy’s… You’ve seen ONE Chuy’s!”
