Chuys will celebrate the 77th birthday of "The King" with a Blue Hawaii Theme party on Sunday.

Bob and Kaci visit with Dayne Kelly, general manager of the Tyler location about what's it store for Elvis' big day!

Chuy's will pay tribute to Elvis with their annual Birthday Bash on Sunday, January 8 at their Tyler location at 5935 S. Broadway. The King's 77th birthday party will have a Blue Hawaii theme, and Chuy's will offer special pricing on their longtime favorites - Elvis Green Chile Fried Chicken and the Elvis Presley Memorial Combo all day on the 8th; and for those who come dressed as the King (or his better half Priscilla), the entree is free!  The day will also be filled with party favors, including Hawaiian leis, Elvis sideburn tattoos and a special Big Kahuna cup, available when you purchase a margarita or Blue Hawaiian.  Limited edition Elvis and Priscilla T-shirts will be available to commemorate the big day.

When Chuy's first opened in 1982 in Austin, TX there was little money for restaurant décor. Chuy's founders hit the streets with $20 in search of something to put on the walls. The over-sized velvet painting of Elvis they returned with changed the course of Chuy's history forever.

Soon, customers were donating their memorabilia and Elvis was officially named the Parton Saint of Chuy's. They have been constructing shrines in his honor and celebrating his birthday ever since. Join Chuy's as they ring in The King's 77th birthday this year with lots of fun and fanfare, and remember - at Chuy's, we can't help falling in love with Elvis.
