Chuy's fine Tex-Mex is officially open for business at 11 am this morning. Their first store in Colorado Springs held a pre-opening/fund raiser last night to help train new employees.
Chuy's features tasty, fresh made Tex Mex and large portions. The decor is kind of a new take on retro in a festive, family friendly atmosphere and you can't beat the view on the heated patio.
Proceeds from drink sales at the event benefit Angels of America's Fallen, a non-profit whose mission is to support the children of fallen first responders.
You'll find Chuy's at the southwest corner of Briargate Parkway and Chapel Hills Drive. The street coming off Chapel Hills Drive (Forest Bluffs View) isn't on the map yet and as of last night, didn't have a sign, but it's easy to spot.
