4914 Town Center Parkway | Jacksonville, FL 32246
The newest restaurant now open at the Town Center is the famous Chuy’s Tex-Mex. The original started in Austin, TX in 1982 and has been growing ever since. As the world turns, I was invited out to a media tasting event for pre- opening festivities and wanted to share my thoughts.
Soft openings as they are called allows the restaurant time to “work out the bugs” and from what we experienced they are well on the way to having it perfect.
Now let’s talk about the food and beverage. We kicked off with two of the perfectly crafted signature Margaritas s perfectly salted rim and a healthy wedge of lime, and a basket of crispy chips and a bowl of Salsa Fresca
Then we added an Appetizer Platter, so huge if fed four of us. One of everything this is sure to be a hit for those who love to share. It held a full compliment of the best choices; Chile con queso, nachos, deluxe quesadillas, chicken flauta, guacamole & sour cream.
Our next choices were equally as plentiful and tasty. A stunning Combo Plate, with Mole, held an impressive array of the best of Tex-Mex favorites, Taco, Enchiladas, Beans, Rice and fresh Salsa Fresca. An array of flavors is satisfied with this dish.
Next choice Steak Burrito, handmade, 12” flour tortilla stuffed with sliced grilled steak and cheese, topped with spicy Hatch Green Chile sauce. Served with green chile rice & charro beans. The meat was well seasoned and tender, sides appeared to be supersized.
Overall, we gave Chuy’s high marks for, flavor, presentation, cost, plus service we will certainly put this on our list of restaurants to revisit.
I suggest getting the crew together, it is a great spot for groups and children.
