For our new followers, we’d like to re-tell the John Madden Story.
Monday night back in 1987, John Madden made a surprising stop here at Chuy’s with the desire to view the Monday night football game on television. Not only did he enjoy the football game, but our traditional, homemade Mexican food. Various times, Mr. Madden posted supportive articles in TIMES, Sports Illustrated, and various other publications of the restaurant, its location, and the generous hospitality he received during his visit. In 1993, he featured the restaurant on the All Madden Show. It was at that time, Mr. Madden named Chuy’s Restaurant the” All Madden Hall of Fame”.
John Madden has continued to visit the restaurant every year since then to not only enjoy the hospitality we offer but his favorite plate “Chicken Picado” No. 21 on our menu. We have had the pleasure of getting to know his wife and sons. They are great people! We truly consider John Madden a sincere friend and enjoy his hospitality when he visits. Our sincere Thanks to John Madden and his family for taking Chuy’s Restaurant beyond the city limits and for giving supportive acknowledgment of one of Texas’ finest Mexican Food restaurants.
