“Great Salsa/Guacamole and Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

The table made Guacamole was terrific. We really enjoyed every item on the menu but the pork was a favorite. The service staff in this restaurant is spectacular.

“Tortillas and chips are a must.. everything else... Average.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

It is an OK Mexican restaurant. The Tortillas are fresh and different from others I tried in similar Mexican restaurants. Flavorful. Other than that, the food is OK. Nothing really strands out.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

I know this is a chain restaurant, but it is a chain that always feels fresh to me. I wish there was a Chevy's in the Raleigh/Cary area so we could go there more often!

I have NEVER had anything to eat at Chevy's that wasn't delicious and I always have the hardest time deciding what to get to eat there! I can never make up my mind! The margaritas were outstanding, the chicken salsa enchiladas were great and the salsa at Chevy's is my all time favorite! (Love the cilantro!)

My favorite thing is that the menu items always taste FRESH! Keep up the good work! Can't wait to come back here in September.

“Excellent chips, good place for faux mex”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Chevy's is one of those chains where I like certain things about them but others just annoy me. Their food is definitely in no way "authentic Mexican" but taken with that understanding it still is good.

As with most Chevy's they have some of the best chips and salsa I've had in a restaurant. with the chips light and crunchy.
I almost always have the chicken fajitas which was good and my wife had flautas which was again good.

My one complaint is that service was a bit overwhelmed, not sure if they didn't have enough staff or just too many customers came in at the same time. In the end it took a bit longer than normal to get in and out.

“Mexican food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Not a Mexican food fan. Ordered Starter Buffalo Chicharrones, supposed to be crispy pork, but was "pork rinds" that was limp and soggy. Ordered Chile Colorado In Molcajete entrée. Served in unusual metal bowl, encased in dark "wood" stand. Meat was dried out, vegetables were overcooked and soft.
Meal did not change my expectations and still not a fan.
