The service was ok and the food was good. I just think it is ridiculous for this place to charge $7.99 for a kids meal and $2.99 for a kids drink!!!!

It was ok; food was good; service was ok but each time we were asked for something it was while looking over our table at something else ?? The place was nice, but didn’t feel clean. Not sure it would be my first choice for Mexican next time.

Overall great experience. Food was terrific (I had the Steak Fajita Burrito with Black Beans). Service was prompt and accurate, and we really enjoyed the tableside Guacamole (very popular).

Once again, Chevy’s was great food and great service. Nine people in my party. Everything was delicious except the salmon. Don’t get the salmon. Stick with the Mexican dishes. Apparently they don’t do salmon well in Mexico. Management took it off my bill and offered free desert. Handled it very well. Otherwise, the food was great. 😀

Waiter had a terrible time getting the orders correct and then our debit card never came back. When asked about it, they “didn’t have it” 🤔😡 This was our first and last time dining at Chevys.

Food was very average overall. Kids meals not good at all. Kids chicken fajitas was a grilled chicken breast. Nothing like regular fajitas on a sizzling platter. Very disappointing. Cute restaurant, really wanted to like it but the food just wasn’t very good.

We had dinner for a group of 18 here during a conference. It was so easy and so well facilitated. The staff at the door called ahead on that day to make sure everything was still set. When we arrived, the table was ready, the staff and service were impeccable. Food and price were great! I highly recommend!!

Although Chevy's is a chain, the one in Lake Buena Vista had good Mexican food (better than most in FL) and excellent service. The queso appetizer and tableside guacamole were very good.

My family has always enjoyed dining at Chevys. We love the salsa! They make it with vegies that have been cooked over the open grill - sorta blacked - and the salsa is THE BEST anywhere - and worth the drive if you love salsa. They do guacamole - made fresh at your table! we like the fajitas best! They have great salads too!
