Chuy's ₱ ₱ ₱

Go down Broadway and look for the frogs in bikinis

It was a Sunday night and we had just finished up a session of Hip Hop Abs so we headed down to Chuy's in Midtown for some Mexican food. The decor and music were louder than hell. It sounded like a dance party at Belk.

Chacho got an infrared laser thermometer for Christmas, so we measured everything, starting with the valet stand outside. The salsa wasn't great, but it's edible so long as you like it to be the same temperature as a valet stand in January.

Nacho's Tip

Place your order, pop in an earbud, and turn on the live version of "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" by Traffic. Your food will arrive just as Nashville resident, Steve Winwood, hits his last note.

Chacho's Truth

  • The salsa and valet stand were both 48° F.
  • Tex-Mex Fajitas for One: 400° F
  • In 1998 Juvenile had a record called 400 Degreez. It went platinum four times and featured the hit single "Back That Azz Up."
  • Guacamole: 57° F
  • Margarita: 29° F
  • You can't just snap your fingers and solve every problem. You gotta get your hands dirty.

Chacho's new Etekcity Lasergrip 774 (ETC 8380) Digital Infrared (IR) Thermometer with Laser Sight determined that his margarita was a cool 29°F. He must have pointed it right at an ice cube.

The creamy jalapeño sauce was disgusting. You'll love it if you like to dip your enchiladas into Hidden Valley Ranch.
