Outstanding fajitas lead the way in a modest, often-crowded Mexican restaurant with speedy service and a good selection of beer. A favorite with college students and young marrieds.

THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Chuy Arzola's Restaurant Review

: When Chuy's first opened, the Dogtown neighborhood was blue-collar and the diners were definitely not. Time passed. Chuy's now has a solid core of regular clients, some from the neighborhood and some old fans that have stayed loyal, plus many college students and families with kids. And Dogtown itself has warmed considerably for diners. So what do you eat at this simple paneled spot with lots of beer signs, lots of noise and rushed service? Fajitas are the dish that made its reputation. They arrive sizzling with the usual accompaniments, including a fine guacamole and a pico de gallo generously spiked with jalapeƱos. Chicken or beef, your choice; we opt for the beef, chewier but more authentic. There are flour tortillas, of course, for wrapping the often-dripping goodies within---watch that shirt, buddy. There are good enchiladas, too, although the beef is ground, not shredded. The margaritas still need work.
