Austin-based Chuy’s is headed for the Wesley Chapel area near Tampa Premium Outlets. Located at 25750 Sierra Center Blvd. in Wesley Chapel, the Tex-Mex restaurant brand is scheduled to open sometime in late spring.
According to Chuy’s Website:
Tex what? While we refer to our food as “Tex-Mex”, our menu is made up of a combination of flavors, with recipes and ingredients from across New Mexico, Mexican border towns, the Rio Grande Valley, deep South Texas, Austin and beyond. Our Green Chile sauce recipe was “borrowed” from a little hole-in-the-wall in Española, New Mexico, and our fajita marinade is an old South Texas family recipe (used at some “infamous” South Padre Island beach parties.) Mike and John wanted to bring FRESH to Tex-Mex, and that commitment to food is still the core of everything Chuy’s does today. In the late 2000’s, with only fifteen restaurants around Texas, we decided it was time to let the universe in on our little Tex-Mex secret. It just didn’t feel right to keep our made from scratch dishes and out of this world service and atmosphere to ourselves anymore. With that desire to “spread the love,” we opened the first Chuy’s outside of Texas in the Nashville, TN suburb of Franklin in November of 2009. From there we have been spreading our vision of fresh, authentic Tex-Mex across the country and bringing what started “Deep in the Heart of Tex-Mex” to food and fun lovers everywhere
