Chuy's, the Austin-based chain of Tex-Mex roadhouses, is celebrating what would have been Elvis Presley's 80th birthday Thursday. Festivities include giveaways, performances by Elvis tribute artists and special pricing on dishes, such as the Elvis Presley Memorial Combo. Free Twinkies will be served (while supplies last) and limited-edition Elvis birthday T-shirts will be available in the gift shops. And if you dress like the King or his lady, Priscilla, you'll eat for free. Find the nearest location at chuys.com.
