Frisco gets its own location of booming Austin Tex-Mex restaurant chain
Frisco's Tex-Mex fans are getting their own location of the popular Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy's.
The Austin-based chain is opening its tenth branch in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, this one at 3773 Preston Rd., between Warren Parkway and John Hickman Parkway.
According to a release, it will open in February. It joins locations that include the flagship on McKinney Avenue, along with east Plano, west Plano, Addison, Southlake, Arlington, Fort Worth, north Fort Worth, and Denton.
Founded in 1982, Chuy's offers a unique dining experience with a colorful, eclectic atmosphere and fun-loving staff.
The menu features authentic dishes and family recipes from south Texas, New Mexico and Mexican border towns, created with hand-rolled tortillas made fresh all day on a traditional comal.
Customer favorites include chile rellenos, chicka-chicka-boom-boom enchiladas and the big as yo' face burritos. See, they're fun.
They've also always been big on Hatch chiles before Hatch chiles turned into a thing introducing limited-time specials during Hatch chile season and roasting them in front of the restaurant.
The Frisco location will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner from 11 am-10 pm, and until 11 pm Friday-Saturday.
On weekdays, the restaurant will feature happy hour specials and their trademark nacho car, a free build-your-own nacho station in the shape of the back of a car, with chips, salsa, queso, ground beef, and more, from 4-7 pm.
Elizabeth Stamper, local owner and operator for the new Chuy's, is understandably excited to be opening in Frisco.
"The residents of North Texas have been so supportive of Chuy’s over the last 26 years," Stamper says in a statement. "We are thrilled to be able to expand and serve more of this great community."
