To commemorate the day, Chuy’s will offer $1 off their signature Elvis Green Chile Fried Chicken, a chicken breast breaded with Lay’s potato chips and fried golden brown, served with Green Chile Sauce and cheese, and The Elvis Presley Memorial Combo, an enchilada plate fit for The King, served with a crispy beef taco and tostada chips dipped in queso.

In recognition of Elvis’ career on the big screen, Chuy’s will be selling Blue Hawaiians – a specialty drink made with Blue Curacao, Malibu Rum, pineapple juice and lime juice and The King’s Punch – a tiki-style fruit punch made with Mount Gay Eclipse rum and Malibu rum.

So why is Chuy’s obsessed with Elvis?

“Elvis is our Patron Saint at Chuy’s and we love to celebrate his life with a birthday party every year,” said Ashley Ingle, Chuy’s VP of Marketing. “It’s amazing to see Chuy’s fans who love Elvis as much as we do. Dress up, enjoy some great Tex-Mex and have fun honoring The King.”

When Chuy’s first opened in Austin, Texas in 1982, Chuy’s founders hit the streets with $20 in search of something to put on the walls. They ended up buying an oversized velvet painting of Elvis, hanging it up in the restaurant and ultimately changing the course of the restaurant’s history forever. Soon customers were donating their own memorabilia, and swapping stories, establishing Elvis as the official Patron Saint of Chuy’s. Ever since, Chuy’s has been constructing shrines in his honor and celebrating the birthday of the The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
