I had such a fun opportunity this week when I was invited to join a group of Charlotte bloggers and writers to check out Chuy’s restaurant and get a taste of their menu. For those of you unfamiliar, Chuy’s is a tex-mex restaurant new to our area in Charlotte; and while I’ve been before for a girls night, I was pretty excited to dive a little more into the menu and leaner more about it.
Chuy’s is a Texas based restaurant and they’ve joined the Southpark area to bring in a taste of their fresh flavor for us to enjoy! I really loved getting to know about the company and menu. As a mom who is pretty obsessed with ingredients and what I feed my family, I was so surprised (and excited) to hear everything is made fresh daily! Nothing frozen in this place! Each Kitchen Manager even travels to New Mexico every year in August to hand pick the green chili’s and ensure they are made to perfection before they bring them back fresh! – - YES!
We were walked through their fun “sauce tour” where we got to taste test each of their variety of sauces and told exactly how each sauce is made.
That is just a tiny glimpse of the options you get at Chuy’s. No matter how many sauces I tried, I kept going back to the Creamy Jalapeño. This is a speciality at Chuy’s and they even gave us their secret ingredient (shhhh – I’ll never tell!) You can even buy it in bulk to take home – this WILL be my “go-to” staple to take to all parties this summer!
Why Moms Will Love It?
Not only is Chuy’s a fun atmosphere (it is surprisingly a sweet family date spot!) I have only been for a girls night, but this will absolutely be our new place to take the whole family for a fun meal! Not only do they have a fabulous kids menu, but because everything is freshly made, it is seriously a way better option than most! I asked questions about the ingredients and I actually got answers.. which is os rare in a restaurant these days.
There’s also a pretty sweet TO GO menu AND you can call ahead and they’ll bring it right out to you! Seriously – a GODSEND! As a mom of two toddlers, I don’t want to feed my family fast food if I’m looking for a quick meal option on the go, and it’s not easy to find a restaurant that makes good fresh food the whole family will love to be able to grab on a pinch. You can literally pick up the phone, order, and pull up and they’ll bring it to you – SCORE!
I can tell you right now, this is going to be a new staple in our family. My husband LOVES mexican food and is a sauce extraordinaire.. he was so jealous as I was texting him pictures of each of the sauces I got to try and mix up!!
Oh! And can I just mention? My lunch was BEACHBODY APPROVED! I started 21 Day Fix this week so have a pretty strict diet I need to go by. The waitress was amazing meeting my requests – grilled fish taco’s with a salad and dressing on the side. I didn’t eat the beans and only had half of the tortilla and it was SO GOOD. I have been craving it ever since!! See! You CAN eat out and be healthy too… and Chuy’s makes that super easy with their fresh and whole ingredients/menu!
So moms – - there IS a better option out there! Who wants to lunch date next week!?
Chuy’s – THANK YOU for having us! It was so much fun to learn about the effort put forth in providing quality food for your customers – I really enjoyed lunch and am already planning my trip back for one of those Green Chili Margaritas!!!
