Yelp’s Taste of Tex-Mex @ Chuy’s Kendall

On January 28th 2019, 40 members of the Yelp Miami community gathered to take a culinary tour of Tex-Mex at Chuy’s in Kendall! A sauce tasting, chimichangas, fajitas, and more…this food-filled night was one to remember!


Who knew that deep in West Kendall, there was so much flavor? This family-style dinner at Chuy’s featured the bold flavors of Tex-Mex. Our Yelp Miami community started with a sauce tour of 10 different delicious sauces and homemade tortilla chips, with the jalapeno cream being a crowd favorite. Next up was an appetizer sampler with flautas, empanadas, and nachos. For entrees, Chuy’s swept everyone away with their Chicka Boom Boom enchiladas complete with a hatch chili sauce, steak & chicken fajitas, and the Chuy-changa. All the while, this Yelp community stayed well-hydrated with tastings of Chuy’s margarita, frozen margarita, Texas-tini, and la pina (a frozen pina-colada style drink made with tequila). Chuy’s ended the night with their favorite dessert, the tres leches, a delicious, Texas-sized sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk (condensed, evaporated, and whole milk).

After an incredible meal, the Chuy’s team gave each Yelper a t-shirt and a cocktail shaker to mix up their own Texas-tinis at home. Between the tasty food, and friendly service, this was definitely one for the books!
