We weren’t familiar with Chuy’s until being introduced to a Facebook group of rabid Middle Tennessee fans desperate for the Tex-Mex chain to open its doors here in Nashville. Something about Elvis… and enchiladas? Anyway, Chuy’s has signed a lease in Cool Springs in what used to be the old Beethoven’s Grille (near Mallory & Cool Springs Blvd. intersection), and we have a feeling that many Texan transplants are going to be dancing with joy at their arrival. And as for us, we were sold after reading the vivid description on Chuys.com:
Scream ’til your daddy stops here. The Elvis Presley Memorial Combo. La Chihuahua Bar. Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade. Burritos as big as yo’ face. Shady Grove. World Famous T-Shirts. Chips & Salsa. Ball wall. Tex-Mex the way you like it. No crybabies. Creamy Jalapeño. The Miracle of ’88. Blue corn tortillas. Air-conditioned dining. Chicka-Chicka Boom-Boom. Chuy’s Hot to Trot 5K & Kid K. Chuychanga. Hubcaps. Chuy’s Green Chile Festival. Mil Pescado. Elvis shrine. Chuy the Redfish. Lucy’s Boatyard. Southwestern Enchiladas. Velvet paintings. Texas Martinis. Keep Austin Weird. We don’t take anything seriously… except our food.
We just got back from getting our very first taste of their creamy jalepeño and tasty margaritas in a parking lot full of Texans, and it seems like they’ll be bringing some much needed excitement to Cool Springs. They even gave us temporary Chuy’s tattoos! We’ll keep you updated with more details about their opening, and join the Facebook group or their official Facebook page for up to date info as well. Thanks to Brad Beatty for the updates!
