Chuy’s Receives Liquor Designation

As Chuy’s gears up for a late spring opening in the former Logan’s Roadhouse at 4609 W. Loop 250 North, the restaurant has scratched another item off its to-do list.

Members of the Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday unanimously approved an application by Deborah Shannon on behalf of Chuy’s Opco Inc. for a specific purpose designation with duration for the sale of all alcoholic beverages, for consumption on place in a restaurant.

Chuy’s is remodeling the former Logan’s Roadhouse, an 8,126 square foot restaurant with a 3,633 square foot liquor service area. The proposed hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. with the same hours for alcohol service.

Commissioners also considered a request by Brianna Garcia for a change of area from PD, Planned Development District for Office Center to a Modified PD, Planned Development District for Office Center at 4401 Gulf Ave., Utah. intersection of Gulf Avenue and Midland Drive.

Garcia made the request to develop a barber shop and have driveway access from Gulf Avenue. The development would consist of an existing 1,400 square foot utility box and a new 1,575 square foot barbershop building, which Garcia said would have four chairs and would be by appointment only. The development also includes eight parking spaces, in accordance with city requirements.

After listening to Gulf Avenue neighbors express concerns about the already heavy traffic on Gulf and Midland Drive as well as on-street parking at the show, commissioners approved the request by a 4-to-1 vote.

In other actions:

  • Approved an application from Midland Visions 2000 for a zoning change from C, Commercial District to TH, Townhouse Dwelling District on a parcel south of Webster Street and Cloverdale Road to allow townhouse construction. Midland Visions 2000 hopes to divide the two west lots into six lots and change the frontage of the lots to Webster Street to build low-income townhouses.
  • Approval of a specific use designation with duration for the sale of all alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption requested by Aide Villareal. Villareal is looking to sell liquor at its snack bar, Los Elotones Changarrin, at 1000 S. Big Spring St. The 2,400-square-foot store’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
  • Approved a request by Juan Hernandez of the El Jimador Bar and Grill at 911 S. Big Spring St. for a specific purpose designation with duration for the sale of all alcoholic beverages, for consumption on the premises, in a restaurant, but with a disclaimer on guard. Hernandez was seeking to change the special purpose designation to extend liquor service hours from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. the next day. As recommended by Commissioner Adrian Carrasco, the request was approved, with the new hours being 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. the following day Wednesday through Saturday, with the Sunday through Tuesday hours remaining unchanged. Carrasco made the change so that El Jimador would be consistent with the other restaurants.
