    We had a great time at chevy's! The food was amazing and the service was great! Be sure to try their freshly made guacamole... They make it in front of you at your table. Our server, Thomas, was great and the atmosphere was awesome. We definitely recommend Chevy's.

    Service was great, nice atmosphere. Ordered the chicken and steak fajita, had to send steak back because it was too tough but the staff was very kind and accomodating, their concern was my total satisfaction. Everything taste great and was seasoned perfectly. Would definitely visit again.

    This is a location we've visited many times through the years - hadn't been here in a little over a year and WOW! Great renovations, complete reorientation of the restaurant, new decor, simplified menu and the food was even better than before! Jessica, our server, was attentive and cooperative (we asked for a pitcher of water after a day in one of the Disney waterparks and this is the ONLY restaurant in years that actually allwed her to do that). It wasn't particularly busy the night we went but it can be suddenly busy, so I do recommend using the OpenTable app to assure yourself a place to dine.

    As always the food at Chevy's was amazing and the service was great. Our waiter was very friendly and even made us custom Margaritas to fit what we were looking for. My first small complaint is that our sides did not come out correctly with the initial food drop but that got worked out quickly. My only other complaint is that they charge for sides of sour cream and other typical Mexican condiments. $1.50 for a dollop of sour cream is ridiculous! We live near by, we are not tourists, so we will definitely return.

    This was my favorite place to eat and I travelled an hour to get there several times a year. Last couple times the service has been far from poor! This time even the food quality and freshness disappeared. Seems like it has declined since the renovations. Took forever to get drink orders, delivery of non alcoholic drinks took just as long. At least 20 minutes for chips and salsa. Queso dip came out first and sat for ten minutes before we ever received the chips. No silverware/napkins until our meals. Refills were hard to get. Salsa was extremely salty. Too many bad service experiences. Management needs to wake up. If it wasn't near Disney and plentiful tourists no regulars would return. Great thing gone terribly bad

    I had no idea this type of service existed. I called Chevys on Thursday to inquire if they did reservations or call ahead seating for Friday. We were visiting in the area and there were 9 of us to dine on Friday. I went to Open Table and it was very easy to make our reservation. We all arrived about 15 minutes before our scheduled reservation time and were seated by our requested time. The servers were very accommodating and the food was delicious. My 5 year old grandson loved the corn side dish, not sure what the exact name is for it.

    The food was good as always. The chips is why we come all the time, and it was a bit annoying having to ask for a refill with the waiter staring at us like "you want another?". I wish the waiter was a bit more accommodating, but overall it was still Chevys, and the food was really good!

    My server was great and the manager and other staff asked how everything was. That said half my order didn't show up because "the kitchen was out" or they were "making it" ie no sauce for my flautas, corn cakes arrived 15 minutes after entrees, etc. Not the restaurant's fault but unbridled shrieking children everywhere. It is Orlando.

    The company's recent million-dollar overhaul was worth the investment. The restaurant has had a complete makeover, the menu and its recipes have been revised, and the service has been greatly improved. With its darker wood tones and attractive light fixtures, the restaurant and bar feel more sophisticated than the typical TexMex dining establishment. The cocktails were delightful, the fresh guacamole was perfectly balanced, and our various orders were flavorful and delicious. Arturo was a friendly and efficient server who treated us like long-lost friends. Well done, Chevy's.

    Made reservation ahead of time, but still had to wait 30 minutes. Service was slow and the server forgot part of my meal. I asked the server to cancel the forgotten item but still ended up paying for it because he didn't know how to properly delete the item off my bill. Food was pretty good... No fried ice cream though. I'd recommend this as a "plan B" if Rocco's Tacos wait time is too long.

    Gregio was a fantastic and gracious waiter, like the kind you want to special request. We used Open Table to book a table for 7 people at 7pm. When we arrived, there was not a table ready because the restaurant's policy is to take reservations at least 3 hours in advance. There were 3 parties of 9 ahead of us. Hostess acted like it was not her problem. She did not apologize or even act apologetic. After 20 minutes, the front manager scrambled and sat us outside, which was perfectly fine. Please fix the Open Table system or quit using it.
