Chevys missed the boat tonight. The server did an excellent job but the kitchen didn't live up to his standards.
The soup came out cold and really salty.
The steak fajitas, way over cooked and hardly any grilled vegetables on the skillet.
The chips and salsa are good as well as the drinks, maybe just go for these and don't order food.

This place has gone down hill over the past couple of years. We noticed this time around that they have raised the prices for smaller portions. We ordered table side quac. The avocados were stringy. And brown. It was tasteless and you don't get a lot. Not worth the $10. We also got the mesquite chicken tacos. I've had them several times before and you would get three. Now for the same price you get two. The chicken was cold and dried out. They clearly cook the chicken in advance and keep it in the fridge. I used to be a big fan of Chevys so this was very disappointing. I don't think we will ever return.

Food was great. Margaritas were great. Server was great. Good time was had by all. I thought it was going to be too noisy to hear when we first walked in, but they put us at a booth near the back and it was great. We each had a different Margarita and meal and all tasted great.

My husband ordered Mahi, about ten minutes later the waiter told us they were out. He reluctantly ordered steak and shrimp...really came for the Mahi. The steak was undercooked, had to be sent back. Overall, we were pretty disappointed with our food. I had to ask for several things missing from my entree. And I was surprised no manager followed through with us given the misses. And the waiter even sent a different waitress over to cash us out.

I had read some reviews about this restaurant as my group was just looking for a place close to where we were staying. I was pleased with the other reviews and they were correct! The service was incredible. Abby was our server. They make guacamole when you order it at your table and it was the best guacamole I have ever had. We were all pleased with our orders. The portions are pretty big, so plan to ask for boxes.

Food was ok. Not as good as it used to be. It had been awhile since we'd eaten here. It just wasn't the same. I guess that's why it wasn't as busy.

We booked online after looking at the menu hoping for authentic Mexican food... we weren't disappointed!! We were greeted and given a lovely booth to sit in. We got lots of complimentary nachos and salsa. The table side guac was the highlight. Fresh guac made to order at the table by a bubbly, full of life lady. It was delicious, fresh and authentic. Our entrees were delicious too. It was a really lovely dinner and we felt very well looked after.

We haven't had the opportunity to eat at Chevy's since we moved from San Diego. On our recent trip to Orlando we were pleased to find a Chevy's and we were not disappointed. We had 14 in our party and the accommodated us quickly on a Saturday evening and the food and service was GREAT

Service was okay I drained my beer and water before he came back to our table so I saved some money, ha. The guacamole dude just showed up at our table before we even got a chance to look at the menu and when we said we haven't decided he had an attitude and then later when he did show up another waitress (not ours) asked him where he was because she needed service.

Our server was rude and inattentive. When we notified the manager, he gave us our new server but our food was cold and unappetizing. We were sure they would take something off our bill for our poor experience, but they failed to do so. We drove 10 miles out of our way to dine there. It's Tijuana Flats next time.
