Chuy’s Tex-Mex Opens, Creates Local Partnership

Chuy’s, a beloved Austin-based restaurant known for its fresh, affordable Tex-Mex and funky, casual atmosphere, is crossing the border into Oklahoma with a location in south Tulsa. Chuy’s is located at 10808 E. 71st St. in front of the Cinemark Tulsa movie theater.

Owner Jill Warden is a Tulsa native bringing Chuy’s to Oklahoma after more than 15 years of working in various leadership positions at multiple Texas locations. “I’m eager to introduce the unique personality and fresh Tex-Mex of Chuy’s to my hometown,” Warden says. “The fun atmosphere and exceptional food is like nothing Tulsa has seen, and I’m confident Tulsans will love it.”

The character of Chuy’s goes far beyond its food and atmosphere with annual events and community relationships. The restaurant was built on a foundation of giving back and with an emphasis on children’s charities. Chuy’s will continue this tradition in Tulsa through a partnership with Family & Children’s Services of Oklahoma, which provides services for children and families in crisis.

“The passion Chuy’s has for children’s charities is a natural fit for us as we provide counseling and support for children and their families following traumatic life events, such as neglect or abuse, to restore the child’s well-being,” said Marydith Morgan, associate director of development for Family & Children’s Services. “We’re looking forward to developing a long-term relationship with the Chuy’s family in Tulsa.”
