Listen, Chuy’s may not serve the best Tex-Mex in the state, or even the best in Austin. But there’s something comforting about the chain, which started in 1982 in an old abandoned barbecue joint on Barton Springs Road. The margs are great, the happy hour boasts a free nacho bar -- and that creamy jalapeno dip? Nothin’ better.

If you’re needing an excuse to eat at one of the local Chuy’s establishments, April 5 is National Burrito Day. Anytime you order a “big as yo face” burrito throughout the day, Chuy’s will donate a dollar to St. Jude. Burritos for a good cause, y’all.
We've partnered up with St Jude to raise awareness and funds to help end childhood cancer. On April 5, 2018, Chuy's will donate $1 to @StJude for each "Big As Yo Face" burrito sold, excluding store locations in AL, SC. #NationalBurritoDay. pic.twitter.com/hGuucT95PW— Chuy's (@ChuysRestaurant) April 3, 2018 ]]
