Fresh Tortillas, Best Taquito Sauce Ever

The food is more "fresh-mex" than authentic. I've had almost everything on the menu over the years and keep coming back when in the area. The taquitos are awesome and come with a jalapeno sauce that I could eat by the spoon full. The kids like to watch the tortillas being made and I like knowing... read more

Whenever the family picks Chevys I get a big ol grin on my face. Love this place. Their Fresh Mex Salsa and chips are so good. Really great if you get hot chips. For a real treat ask for a small side dip of japalno jelly. This jelly is Great on their tacos and burritos. It's not hot, just delicious.... More

We made the mistake of trying to look for a place to eat in the area on a Saturday night. We searched and finally decided on Chevys. We noticed the parking lot was not totally full, and were surprised when we entered and were quickly greeted and sat at a table. The waiter was very welcoming, and quick to offer... More

Poor service, terrible food, spectacularly over priced. We live nearby and used to go there a lot, but the place has gone consistently downhill ----now to the point that we can't imagine ever going there again. Save your hard earned money for someplace that is worth it, someplace where they act like they actually want your business. Simply awful.

We go to Chevy's fairly frequently. They have a varied menu, well beyond normal "texican" selections. I love the face they will always substitute grilled (or similar) veggies for rice and/or beans. Staff is very well trained and friendly. The play is always clean and there is ample spacing between tables.

We got the nachos grande and I can tell you that I EASILY make way better nachos than chevys on K. I looked around the table and noticed that very few... More

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.
