Chuy’s Fayetteville location now open

A popular Mexican restaurant chain opened their first Fayetteville restaurant this week.

Chuy’s officially opened a new location at 642 E. Millsap Road in Fayetteville on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

The restaurant got its start in 1982 in Austin, Texas, and was founded by entrepreneurs Mike Young and John Zapp who, according to their website, had “had a vision of a fun and funky Tex-Mex restaurant that served authentic and fresh food in an atmosphere that appealed to everyone.”

The menu focuses on traditional Tex-Mex fare, including tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas, and other items. 

The chain opened its first Arkansas location in Little Rock in 2013, followed by a location in Rogers in 2014. Chuy’s currently operates about 100 restaurants across 20 states, mostly concentrated in Texas and around the South.

The new Fayetteville restaurant is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. according to the hours on their Facebook page.
