Chuy’s, one of the most beloved Tex-Mex restaurant concepts, is opening its first South Florida location in Doral on Tuesday,March 13, 2018. The opening will mark the 9th Florida location and 91st restaurant overall for the established brand, which opened its first restaurant in Austin, Texas 35 years ago. With 15 locations in Texas by the late 2000’s, the Chuy’s team decided to let the rest of the country in on their little Tex-Mex secret, spreading the love to 19 states since 2009.
To celebrate the grand opening of their new location, the restaurant is offering free Chuy’s for a year to the first 50 guests in line when they open at 11 a.m. on March 13. For the first four weeks of opening, diners have the chance to discover a lucky Golden Ticket in their silverware with a variety of offers to enjoy including a free appetizer, entrée, tres leches and more.
“Miami will finally have authentic Tex-Mex straight from Austin,” quipped Local Owner and Operator, William Stringer. “We’re very excited to bring our made-from-scratch Tex-Mex to this community. The Doral location is an ideal environment for Chuy’s – it’s an exciting, growing community hungry for new and fun places to dine and drink.”
The menu offers an explosion of flavors, featuring authentic dishes crafted with hand-rolled tortillas made fresh all day on a traditional comal in the dining room. The recipes come from New Mexico, the Rio Grande Valley, Mexican border towns, South Texas, Austin, and beyond. Popular items include truly Authentic dishes such as Enchiladas rolled by hand and Stuffed Chile Rellenos, complemented by signature homemade sauces, ranging from the mild Tomatillo Sauce to the spicy Hatch Green Chile sauce.
