MIAMI, FL – Chuy’s, one of the most beloved Tex-Mex restaurant concepts is opening its first Miami location in October 2017. The opening will mark the 9th Florida location and 90th 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.
Chuy’s marries traditional Tex-Mex, made-from-scratch cuisine and a playful lineup of cocktails with an eccentric dining room design offering a flavorful and whimsical culinary experience. Chuy’s restaurants are notable for their fresh ingredients and quirky design – and the stories behind it all.
The company is more a collective of uniquely compelling restaurants that share core values rather than a traditional chain. “We’re always looking for new ways to engage our customers,” says Local Owner and Operator, Kamel Basma. “Realizing that all markets are different, we approach each location with its community in mind. Our teams create an inviting atmosphere and set the building blocks for real relationships with our diners. The Doral location is an ideal environment for a brand like ours – 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. Playful, must-try Signature plates include the Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom Enchiladas and Chuy’s Famous Big As Yo’ Face Burritos. The size of the burrito is guaranteed!
Sure to become a go-to destination to wind down after work, the one-of-a-kind Happy Hour at Chuy’s will be offered Monday through Friday from 4PM to 7PM – featuring a variety a drink specials including scratch-made margaritas with fresh-squeezed lime juice and hand shaken Texas martinis. Along with the selection of affordable pours, Chuy’s will serve up the best Happy Hour deal in town, their famous Fully-Loaded Nacho Car – a free, unlimited, build-your-own nacho station housed in the trunk of a vintage car – is loaded with fresh chips, salsa, queso, beans and ground sirloin.
Known for its funky décor, Chuy’s signature look includes a custom Elvis Shrine, metal palm trees, a hubcap-covered ceiling, the La Chihuahua Bar showcasing local’s dog photos, and a school of hand-carved wooden fish "swimming" through the restaurant – each of which has its own unique story. However, with a nod to its new Miami market, diners can expect to see vibrant locally-inspired details. The Chuy’s motto is “If you’ve seen one Chuy’s, you’ve seen one Chuy’s!” – because no two restaurants are the same.
When it opens in October 2017, Chuy’s Doral will be located at 8001 NW 36th Street. It will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
Founded in Austin, Texas, in 1982, Chuy’s serves authentic, affordable Tex-Mex fare made to order from fresh ingredients in an atmosphere full of fun and attitude. Chuy’s has earned the reputation across Texas and throughout the Southeast for being the most fun and friendly spot to enjoy real Tex-Mex food at a great price.
