Chuy’s quick-lunch

Everybody in town seems to have had the same idea: burn some vacation time or just plain skip thoughts of returning to work at all. This afternoon at 2:30 the late lunch wasn’t immediate, which weakened the quick-lunch factor, but the wait-estimate was a good one, and after all it was lunch at Chuy’s, and that makes all the difference. At our table were nachos (huge order, nicely composed) and chicken enchiladas with Hatch green chile and sides of rice and refritos, plus a cheap add-on of one crisp taco and some quacamole. The enchiladas are two on a plate but with contents equal in quantity to four enchiladas from a lot of places. Tea and Cokes are still served in super-sized plastic glasses. The classic margaritas, straight up, are still classic margaritas, and nobody asks whether what you want is a Mexican margarita or one on the rocks or a frozen. This was Chuy’s on Barton. It was conducting quite a take-out business. The take-out menu says, “Order NOW and receive FREE plastic tableware with each entree!” The photo booth was seeing so much action that my turn never came up.
