  • "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"

  • "The food perfect just i brought 12 guests and it took the server over 15 minutes to get our drinks...overall he was friendly but i had to constantly remind of re fills or even to come back to take our order."

  • "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 awesome. Service was amazing. We had a late group and it was not a problem t accommodate us. We will definitely visit again."

  • "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!"

  • "Average service and sub-par Mexican food... I would not recommend. Taco Bell is nearly the same but a lot less expensive!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "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."

  • "Fifteen minutes to get drinks...brought other people's food to our table...didn't have our order right...had to ask for drink refills, then she didn't refill all the drinks...food server accidentially stuck hand in salsa and didn't offer to get us a new bowl...food itself was good"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Love the salsa. Would probably go only for the salsa. The dinner menu is good, but the salsa is the gem."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Our dinners came out very scattered. Almost 20 minutes between when the first and last entree hot the table. Was once a great place, hope it returns to be that way."

  • "I had thee best time with our waiter Luis. He was funny and super attentive. Manager on duty was amazing and super funny, we made her day by comparing her to a Spanish anchor and she was thrilled to know she was just as beautiful . I will for sure return to this location."

  • "We go to Chevy's in the cities where we travel that have them - we always know the food will be great, the pricing fair and the service wonderful. Glad that we are able to count on Chevy's out of town and wish we had one in Nasvhille!"

  • "I was disappointed in the chicken fajitas--I have never had such bland fajitas before and expressed my displeasure to my sever and was givenm. a container of scampi sauce--which was toooo spicy. Unfortunately, I cannot recommed Chevy's to anyone who asks me."

  • "You must try the table side guacamole. It is fantastic. Just avoid the overpriced margaritas!"
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "I wondered what I could find on the menu that would fit my low-carb diet. I went with the mesquite grilled steak salad. It was delicious, one of the best salads I've ever eaten."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "All of the food was tasty. The quac and queso were great as were the shrip and crab enchiladas. It was busy but all restaurants near Disney on a Saturday are. We would go again but only if we are thinking Mexican. We like lively restaurants but this seemed a little too lively."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "Love the updated menu and must recommend the jalapeno bacon wrapped shrimp as well as the spicy green salsa!"

  • "Great restaurant - we went twice while staying nearby and had excellent meals and overall excellent experiences both times. Nice to have a superior non-chain option so close to the resorts!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Tge waiter was disinterested and tired of us. My order was messed up and he was upset with me that I was unhappy. We took our cheese dip home and had to ask twice for a bag to take some chips from our table home. I wanted to like chevys. We will not be back."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "They need a better system for seating. The girl was overwhelmed and acted like she had no idea what she was doing. We eventually found 2 booths & asked if we could have them. We booked a table for 6:15. We weren't seated until 6:45."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Was a great get-away from the hustle and bustle of Disney. Have eaten at several Chevy's around the country and they are consistently good. Salsa not as spicy as we from Oklahoma are used to, but very good experience."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "From the time we were received at the door by the hostess till our meal was complete the service was outstanding and friendly. We were a party of 3 adults and 4 children from the ages of 3 to the 58, all were treated well and spoken too. The waiter was funny, friendly and accurate with all our requests and speedy. The food is slightly different from what most people consider traditional tex mex, however it was prepared outstandingly well, the flavors were super with a great selection to choose from including a better than average children's menu. The cost was comparable to or slightly lower than most (GOOD) sit down restaurants. Florida is a difficult state to find good Mexican food in so give Chevys a try, bet you wont be disappointed!!!!"

  • "The food was exceptional as always, and the service was good."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Took a while for the clearly overworked waiter to notice us, but finally he did and brought what are without any doubt the very best chips and salsa to our table. The place was quite noisy for a Tuesday, with people having to talk loud over the music (shut it off, please if people are there to talk). After spending ridiculous amounts of money in the various theme parks for tiny portions of mediocre food, our dinner of nachos (which my wife and I shared) was out-of-this-world! It was also so affordable. If I could, I would eat at a Chevy's once a week. Except for the fireworks at Epcot, Chevy's was the best experience we had in Orlando! Yes, it was noisy, but bearable (plus it was our 28th anniversary!). Wish I'd gotten their salsa to-go!!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We hadn't eaten at a Chevy's in about 15 years so we were surprised to see that he restaurant has gone through a major overhaul. The restaurant itself looks more "upscale" and the menu has been completely changed. We were put off at first by the much higher prices but the food was excellent. While the quality was spot on, the increased pricing and smaller portions move Chevy's off of our potential go-to list to our special occasion list. 4 stars for food, ambiance and service but we are a bit disappointed that the Chevy's we remember no longer exists."

  • "I am local to Orlando and love Chevy's! Definitely some of the best Tex Mex in the area. The only thing they need to do is bring back the fried ice cream- it's so good and I was said it was no longer on menu...."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It was better before the remodel and the menu change. Now it 's over priced with smaller portions and a menu lacking choices or descriptions about what was on the menu. I will not be going back."
