Mama Chuy, the tasty taqueria, now delivers!

Longtime readers of this blog will know that I'm a big fan of Mama Chuy, the Mexican taqueria at 2620 Georgia Ave NW, near Fairmont Streets. The spot, run by a brother and sister using their grandmother's old recipes, has delicious Mexican food plus tasty margaritas.

The tacos are delicious, as are the sopes, a kind of flat taco with a thicker, fried tortilla base. I've liked everything I've had there, especially the al pastor (marinated pork with onion and cilantro,) the milanesa (breaded, fried chicken) and the vegetarian ones with spinach, poblano pepper and melted Chihuahua cheese.

They also have bigger dishes like carne asada (grilled steak) platters, lots of burritos and the like, plus good sides -- I was a big fan of the papitas fritas, sort of like steak fries with Mexican cojita cheese.

But like Reading Rainbow, don't take my word for it -- they have four stars on 100 Yelp reviews.

And now they deliver! From 5 to 10:15pm, they'll bring their fare to you through Grubhub. I haven't tried them for delivery but I definitely plan to. And lst week they tweeted that you can get $5 off your first offer by using the code "eeo8919" at mamachuy.net.

Any clarity on their delivery area?

They're on Seamless as well. Been getting delivery from them for a few months now, didn't think this was new?
BTW, we're at 11th and Columbia, pretty close to them.

I also like Mama Chuy, but I admit I don't go very often because of their location. I live in northern Columbia Heights/ Southern Petworth and would much prefer they were located to the heart of either neighborhood. They should follow the Salt Pepper Grill business model and open a new location on upper 14th St near the Red Derby. They would do a killing! Perhaps even on Upshur near Petworth Citizen.

Isn't there a $25 minimum for delivery? That's seems a bit excessive.

I love Mama Chuy's tacos and I've had food delivered from them twice. Both times, my food was delivered by a woman driving a Jaguar... they mean business!
