Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy's to open in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - More of Texas is moving to Colorado Springs, but this time it's the Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy's. 

The chain, which first started in 1982, boasts, "a unique dining experience focused on made-from-scratch Tex-Mex recipes in a fun, eclectic atmosphere."

The restaurant will open at 9297 Forest Bluffs View near the corner of Briargate Parkway and Chapel Hills Drive in the spring. 

The building is a 7,000 sq. ft. restaurant with a 1,000 sq. ft. outdoor patio and the company plans to hire more than 100 part and full-time staff. 

“The culture and tight-knit feel of the Colorado Springs community was a big draw. Similar to Chuy’s original roots in Austin, Colorado Springs is a big city with a small-town feel that we feel is the perfect fit for us,” said Local Owner and Operator, Joanna Hicks. “We like to say that if you’ve seen one Chuy’s, you’ve seen one Chuy’s because no two locations are the same. The Colorado Springs restaurant will be unique to this great community.”
