Elvis-loving Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy’s plans to open a location at the Springtown Shopping Center (205 W. Hopkins St.) in San Marcos this summer. The 6500 square-foot restaurant will have an outdoor patio and will be the 70th restaurant in the Austin-based chain that now has locations in 14 states.

"San Marcos has been on our radar screen for a while because of its growth rate. We just needed to find the perfect location, and we’ve found that with Springtown," Don McKechnie, director of real estate and construction for Chuy’s, said. "Now, with that decided, we’ll focus our efforts on designing a restaurant that’s as custom and unique as San Marcos itself."

Gold’s Gym and EVO Entertainment Group’s the Spot, a six screen luxury theater and bowling alley, have also signed leases at Springtown, with the gym slated to open in March and the Spot later this summer.
