The original Chuy’s on Barton Springs Road in Austin, Texas. We ate lunch there once. I did kind of notice all the Elvis stuff but wasn’t overwhelmed by it. I read that it has an Elvis shrine that is well known. I think it was in the bar area and I was not. Also, I don’t like to mention negative things out of anybody’s past but this is where the Bush daughters were confronted by the police over alcohol. Really colorful place and the food is pretty good. I’d go back.
