Service was good. And that's about it. Food was meh and overpriced. Won't be going back. Restaurant was dead when we went - we should have taken a hint.

The salsa is the freshest and the fajitas most expensive, 15 bux for not even a pound of meat, I can get better at local mexican place ran by locals. Service is poor, mgr non existent when asked for, food comes not very hot ( used to sizzle ) and price for 2 people w/o appetizers and alcohol $ 35+

I was in the mood for real authentic fresh Mexican so my husband and I decided to give Chevy's one more try before writing this restaurant off our list. The truth is in the past we had been to Chevy's and didn't enjoy the food or service. Wow, they obviously are doing something different because the staff was friendly and... More

Stumbled onto the place after a late night at work. Almost closing, but they were friendly enough to let me in even though they were cleaning up for the night. The chips and Salsa were incredible...could make a meal out of that alone. The entree was good, and the service was great considering I was their last customer of the... More

Food was good. Rice was really good. A little spicy, something different compared to what we have in Texas. I would compare this good to our Tex-mex. Not authentic Mexican food.

This is an average Mexican restaurant convenient to some local motels. However, it has been overtaken by several better competitors in terms of variety of menu items, atmosphere, and price.

We had lunch and at the height of lunchtime the place was almost empty. Chips and salsa were excellent, but the food was just average. The waitress was very good and went out of her way to make sure we got good service.
