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.

My twin brother and I, along with our wives and daughters, were celebrating our birthday, and visited Chevy's. On a cold winter evening, we were seated directly next to a cozy fireplace. We are both members of Chevy's Compadres Club, and were there for our free birthday entrees; my brother also had a coupon for a free apetizer. We asked... More

Love the chips and salsa at this place. The service was good and friendly and the food is good. The selection is your basic tex/mex fare with tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc.

Sat in the bar area, the place was dead and still the place was dirty. Our waitress was more concerned about talking to her coworkers at the hostess desk than actually working and getting drink refills. The place was dead so there is no reason our drinks should have ever been empty. Ordered beef tacos and got chicken tacos instead.
