David, We visited the Lexington Chuy's a couple of years ago when my brother from Austin TX told me to watch the company and its IPO. Of course, I ate the food but didn't buy the stock!

Since then we've visited the two in Cincinnati, too, and our sentiments pretty much echo yours. Very fun place to eat, reasonable, and the food is pretty good too. Parking lots are always packed. And did you find the 'Elvis shrine'? Supposedly every Chuy's has one somewhere.

Still haven't bought the stock mainly because my funds are restricted right now and also because I own another Mexican food play Fiesta Restaurant Group FRGI out of Miami with stores throughout the south and Texas (is Texas in the south?). And I also own of course the TMF favorites PNRA and CMG, and TXRH too, so I'm full up on restaurant stocks.

Thanks for the great report. I've got it on my watch list and I'll be taking note of your posts on it. Let us know when you buy and maybe I'll jump in then too!

And Congratulations on your graduation!
