It was busy, but we were seated quickly, and the waitress was very friendly. My kids were hungry, and although my son could pass for a child, in respect to the establishment we all got adult menus for lunch.
The chips and salsa were fresh and delivered to the table shortly after we ordered our drinks and food.
The food arrived shortly, and my soft tacos were great...the chicken was moist, and it was WAY TOO much food. My kids also couldn't finish their dishes but they loved the taste!
I'm hoping they should have a "lunch menu" which might offer smaller portions because this was a big meal!

While in the DC area for the weekend, my wife and I just made a right turn and found our favorite Mexican restaurant. We first found Chevy's a year ago while in St. Paul, MN on a business trip. So to find one in Virginia was,a real treat.
The restaurant is a very attractive one and also has the feel of being on a beach in Mexico. "Fun" is one word that comes to mind about Chevy's. They have a great bar, but one that is thoughtfully not right out where all of the families are.
Best of all, the Chevy's menu appeals to most anyone who loves Mexican food. Chevy's says in their website that their specialty is fresh food made from scratch. That difference is very apparent! My wife completely enjoyed her Tostada Salad, while I was blown away by my Enchilada combo from the section of the menu that even included freshly grilled vegetables, a rarity in most Mexican restaurants.
We both agreed that the finale- Chevy's fried ice cream- was the best ever with its very unique coconut coating and delicious vanilla ice cream.
For fun and the tastiest Mexican that you're likely to find, give Chevy's a try!

A small group of us went in to Chevy's for a quick happy hour and was pleasantly surprised with the swift customer service and great prices. Happy hour lasts until 8PM, so it is a great place to go if you work late. Margaritas are $3.99 and there are $2 beer specials. We ordered 4 beers, 2 margaritas, queso dip and the bill was $31 - that is pretty darn good for Northern Virginia. There is also unlimited free chips and GREAT salsa, so even if you don't order food, you got some free food coming! Also, when we got there, they only had 3 chairs at the table, but there were 5 of us. Without even asking and within minutes, they had a chair for everyone - now that's what I call customer service! Without a doubt, will be back again!
