Chattanooga Chuy’s Grand Opening

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Chuy’s Tex-Mex restaurant opened its doors to the public for the first time on Tuesday at 2771 Gunbarrel Road.

The Austin-based restaurant has been using recipes from South Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns to prepare made-from-scratch dishes for the past 34 years. They offer authentic food and homemade sauces, ranging from mild to spicy.

The atmosphere of the new restaurant is colorful, fun and friendly, with hubcaps decorating the ceiling and a build-your-own nacho station made to look like the trunk of a car.

The menu includes 12” burritos “Big As Yo’ Face” made with hand-rolled flour tortillas, tacos, enchiladas, chile rellenos, chalupas, chicken flautas and a variety of other Tex-Mex dishes.

Chuy’s also does it’s part to give back to the local community. In Chattanooga, they have teamed up with the Chambliss Center for Children and McKamey Animal Shelter.

“Bringing Chuy’s bold flavors and personality to Chattanooga has been a goal for years,” said Chuy’s owner and operator Christine Bailey. “From the way Chattanoogans embrace fresh food and community involvement, we see our Gunbarrel location as only the beginning of a long and successful partnership with both the people of Chattanooga and the Chambliss Center for Children.”

Location: 2771 Gunbarrel Road, Chattanooga, Tn 37421

Hours: M-Th 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

            F-Sun 11 a.m. - 11 p.m.

Roy Exum: Vulgar Trump & More

Nothing rankles me more than seeing obscenities and vulgarity that appears in today’s liberal media, not to dare mention our public forum. Understand, I will use “damn” when no other word will fit as well. I’ll use “hell” as an exclamation point sometimes and I also may quote an aggressor in a story where he threatens to whip another’s “ass.” But our President reached an all-time ... (click for more)
