Chuy's is a Tex Mex restaurant chain that has 58 restaurants in 14 states. It is popularly known for its Tex Mex foods like enchiladas, burritos, and signature guacamole. Generally, Tex Mex cuisines carry heavy carbs but the good news is that they can easily be keto-fied with proper knowledge and careful carb counting.
According to the official nutrition menu, there are 34 keto options available at Chuy's with under 20g of net carbohydrates.
When ordering at Chuy's it is best to not order from the pre-set menu and request for a customized meal instead. We highly recommend a salad with chicken or steak paired with some low-carb vegetables like leafy greens and tomatoes. You can finish your salad with cilantro vinaigrette dressing which has 3g of net carbohydrates. Guacamole is also a great side as it is high in healthy fats and low in carbs.
If you are in a hurry or not in the mood to customize your food, don't worry because we got your back. You can always go for some combo meals like the Combo, Cheese Chile Rellenos with 13g of total carbohydrates, and the Tex-Mex Salad Combo, Cheese Enchilada with 7g of total carbohydrates. For salads, we suggest the Grilled Chicken Salad with 11g of net carbohydrates and Mexi-Cobb Salad with 17g of net carbohydrates.
Burritos are off-limits to keto as they are high in carbs. Instead of a burrito, you can go for a low-carb Enchilada. The cheese enchilada is a good choice with only 6g of net carbs. Sauces are also served at Chuy's but you should have it in moderation as sauces can easily add up to your carb count. Some sauces we recommend are the Boom-Boom Sauce, Ranchero, and Pico de Gallo that have 3g, 5g, and 3g of net carbs respectively.
