The Mr and I made it down the to Chuy's for a dinner-date and um. Stop the presses. While the food was perfectly delicious (and the portions are mega-sized,) it was the atmosphere that sucked me in to loyalty. I promise I won't ever eat at another Mexican (tex-mex or not) restaurant again. Sitting in the waiting area for our table (it was a Saturday night after all,) I was a little bit alarmed. Kitschy, touristy t-shirts were on display (and for sale,) there was an Elvis lamp in it's own little recess in the wall, on display like a religious artifact (and I'm sure it is to some.) The color scheme had me thinking Florida retirees and traditional tex-mex styles. The tables and chairs were retro diner. The music was......lovable. There were people carrying margaritas everywhere. We were finally seated, and helped by a most gracious server (an interior decorator and blogger.) The longer we sat, the more we fell in love with this place. There was laughter, loud talking, large gestures and a general party-atmosphere. There may not have been a happier place on earth that evening (and yes, we've been to Disneyland and Disney World.) The Steak Burrito (big as yo' head) is delicious - it's not sweat-inducing spicy, I promise <wink>
