Mike Young and John Zapp opened the original Chuy's in 1982 with no decorating budget. That's how they ended up with a velvet painting of Elvis that became a focal point for the restaurant. Customers shared their own memorabilia and Elvis became the Patron Saint of Chuy's. The King's birthday has been an important event ever since.
It wouldn't be a real birthday party without cake and some take-home goodies, so the restaurants will serve birthday cake (while supplies last), give away temporary Elvis-themed tattoos, and special souvenir cups, good for margaritas or Blue Hawaiians. The annual limited edition Elvis and Priscilla t-shirts will be available for purchase.
In addition to food and drink specials, cake, and party favors, each celebration will feature a performance by a local Elvis tribute artist. Check the schedule below for times and location, get dressed up, and go have some fun!
