Chuy’s, the Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant known for their authentic, fresh food and eclectic design, has opened their third location in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. The new location is located at 135th Street and Metcalf Avenue at the Deer Creek Marketplace shopping area.

Founded in Austin, Texas in 1982, Chuy’s offers a unique dining experience including made from scratch Tex-Mex recipes and authentic dishes created with hand-rolled tortillas made fresh all day on a traditional comal in the dining room. The recipes come from New Mexico,the Rio Grande Valley, Mexican border towns, South Texas, Austin, and beyond. Customer favorites include Stuffed Chile Rellenos, Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom Enchiladas and Chuy’s Famous Big As Yo’ Face Burritos. The eatery is known for its funky décor, in fact, the Chuy’s motto is “If you’ve seen one Chuy’s, you’ve seen one Chuy’s!” because each restaurant’s décor is unique, and no two restaurants are the same.
“We’re very excited to be expanding our made-from-scratch Tex-Mex even further,” said Jake Bloom, local owner and operator for the new Chuy’s. “Overland Park is an ideal area for Chuy's – the community here is hungry for a new and fun place to dine and drink with friends and family,” Jake added.
