Chuy’s – the Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant known for its made-from-scratch dishes and fun-loving, eclectic atmosphere – has opened its second Chicagoland location at 1701 E Golf Road in Schaumburg, Ill. Chuy’s recently opened its first area restaurant in Warrenville, and is scheduled to open a third location in Orland Park in 2018.
“We’re very excited to call Schaumburg our newest home, and introduce everyone to Chuy’s unique, made-from-scratch approach to Tex-Mex,” said Larry Vanni, local owner/operator of Chuy’s Schaumburg. “In the short time since Chuy’s has been part of the Chicagoland food scene, we’ve received such a great response. We’re looking forward to opening in Schaumburg and continuing to spread our passion for fresh food and great service to this community.”
For more than 35 years, Chuy’s has showcased family recipes found in South Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns, and the restaurant’s “Fresh Never Frozen” commitment to food is found throughout the menu:
- Homemade tortillas start as a bag of flour every morning and are rolled all day on a traditional comal proudly displayed in the dining room.
- Fresh chicken is roasted all day long, and the white meat is lovingly pulled by hand before filling customer favorites, including “Big As Yo’ Face” Burritos and Chicka-Chicka Boom-Boom Enchiladas.
- Guacamole is made from scratch in small batches during the day with only the ripest avocados, regardless of season or cost.
- Ten handcrafted signature sauces are homemade daily and range from the mild Tomatillo to a spicy Hatch Green Chile. Chuy’s partners with green chile farmers in Hatch, New Mexico, the world’s best green chile growing area. Kitchen operators travel to these fields every August when green chiles are harvested to ensure that Chuy’s brings back the most flavorful crops.
