Sunday afternoon lunch

Excellent service, authentic Mexican dishes.We visited on a Sunday afternoon and were immediately seated. Appetizers were freshly made and beer selection was more than sufficient. Took advantage of the special St. Louis quesadilla and sweetheart tried pork carnitas. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
