Chuy's Brings Fresh Tex-Mex to Fairfax This August

From our friends at Chuy's...

Iconic Tex-Mex Restaurant Opens First Northern VA Location in Fairfax This August

Chuy's brings authentic Tex-Mex cuisine to Fairfax, Virginia, when the Austin-based restaurant opens its first metropolitan Washington location at 11219 Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22030 on Tuesday, August 26.

For more than 30 years, Chuy's has been known for its commitment to providing made from scratch Tex-Mex using only the freshest ingredients. The menu includes hand-rolled tortillas cooked fresh all day on a traditional comal in the dining room and salsa fresca made every hour. It also showcases dishes made from authentic recipes found in South Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns. Chuy's serves up homemade sauces, ranging from the mild Tomatillo Sauce to the spicy Hatch Green Chile.

"We are thrilled to open our doors in Fairfax," said Lance Smith, Area Supervisor for Chuy's in Northern Virginia. "It's time the D.C. area gets a fresh and authentic Tex-Mex restaurant. I'm positive people will appreciate our passion for food and our fun and quirky style."

Diners can expect a vibrant atmosphere complete with an Elvis Shrine, the La Chihuahua Bar featuring framed pictures of local dogs, a "school" of hand-carved wooden fish, metal palm trees and a hubcap-covered ceiling.

Chuy's Fairfax will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner: from 11am to 10pm, Sunday through Thursday and 11am to 11pm, Friday and Saturday. On weekdays from 4pm to 7pm, the restaurant will offer up happy hour drink specials and the fully-loaded nacho car, an unlimited build-your-own nacho station with chips, salsa, queso, ground sirloin and more.

The opening of Chuy's Fairfax this August will be shortly followed by Chuy's Springfield, which is scheduled to open in the newly renovated Springfield Town Center in October.
