Low-carb dementia pushed me to this salad in 2002. Dragged me away from my No. 4 with a shrimp rel­leno and a cheese en­chi­lada, my blue corn tor­tillas, the dizzy head-rush of starch con­vert­ing to sugar. But the Mexi-Cobb ($7.99) is a good place to land, still a fine ve­hi­cle for Chuy’s tomato-and-carrot ta­ble sauce or creamy jalapeño dress­ing. It’s a Christ­mas pageant of red toma­toes and green av­o­ca­dos and roasted chiles, filled out with stripes of shred­ded cheese and a rib­bon of smoky grilled chicken fa­ji­tas. Taken solo or as a gang, this Cob­bled crew never stopped me from crav­ing chips and swirled mar­gar­i­tas, but it beat hav­ing an­other ham­burger with­out the bun.
