“Great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Great service with typical Chevy's atmosphere.
Three in our party..we ordered Chicken fajitas, chicken flautas and pork tamales. The fajitas were sizzling (as they should be) the flautas and tamales weren't "hot" as in temperature by any means and the beans and rice were luke warm. Although it was all very tasty, the food could've been at a better temp but we were too hungry and it was too busy to send it back. (4 stars for service)

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

My wife and I stopped here for lunch during our recent visit to Lake Tahoe. All in all our meals were well prepared and tasty. No complaints. I'd eat here again.

“Our party of 5 left properly sated!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We were in South Lake Tahoe for a family reunion of sorts and one of the evenings we went here for a nice dinner for five. The manager on staff was WAY friendly -- almost too friendly -- but that's ok because he staff balanced him out.

This was our first visit to Chevy and we enjoyed it a lot. The portions were more than ample, the food seemed to be well prepared (but not being huge tex-mex fans we can only way we enjoyed it), and the drinks were nice (margaritas not overly alcoholic, but not lacking either)

The entrees were large enough that even though I had been eyeing the flan from our arrival I was too full to even consider ordering it.

We had a very enjoyable time, ate some very nicely flavored food, and left in a mood to return soon.

“Fresh well prepared Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Making fresh tortillas in dining room. Sauces on enchiladas extremely tasty. Decor reflects age of building. But food and value are excellent. Service friendly and easy going.

“Football special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

If you want good food on the cheap, hit the football special. Drinks and nachos are reduced and very good. We had the combo fajitas and will be going back for more. The service was excellent.
