Thanks to WayneMan Comedy for sending: “Have you heard about the restaurant that opened in Mama Chuy’s old location? They may have launched this weekend.”

Back in 2014 we learned that the building was for sale for $649,999.

Mama Chuy opened up back in December 2011. We spoke about this location’s closure and delivery from a location much further north back in February.

    This is great, I’ve been looking to upgrade my current biryani. Anyone know what kind of trade-in rates they pay?

  • curious

    Wonder if they’re better than Salt and Pepper, which is on the same block, and is AWESOME.
    (Also wonder if this area can support two Indian takeouts…?)

    • samanda_bynes

      i hope so. salt and pepper is dope, petworth cafe is dope, another one with a buffet ain’t a bad option…

  • DF

    Mama Chuy was definitely a favorite delivery option when we lived nearby. Gonna miss em. 🙁

    Indian buffet: The best of all buffets. I shall keep them in business, or die trying.
