Took a while to get drinks and even longer for water. Asked for water without ice and it came with ice. Took a real long time for the food order, and about 20 minutes after we ordered, another waitperson came out and asked what we had ordered. It seemed like they forgot about us. When the orders came out they were wrong. Also, mojitos were too sweet. Guac and chips were good.

Dined here with a friend but the table didn't allow for proper social distancing between us. We requested a booth but it took about an hour before one opened up. Next time I will try asking for a booth in the notes of my reservation.

This is one of the few places where you can still get a decent frozen margarita (other restaurants will only serve you margaritas on ice). We had steak fajitas. The meat and everything with it was excellent. The noise level wass tolerable, event though there were several busloads of tourists having dinner at the same time. The servers were all uniformly friendly but not obtrusive and clearly appreciated our business.

The food was on par with Chevy’s typical. But the service was horrendous. And for a valentines evening that’s really disappointing.
The restaurant was mostly empty when we arrived for our reservation, yet we were shown to the worst placed table. I requested a new table politely and the host gave us a new table, albeit with a somewhat poor reaction.
Our server actively avoided our table throughout our meal. Our drinks were warm. We had to ask for chips and salsa and refills after waiting for him to notice. And anytime he spoke to us it was quick and rude.
In the end we spoke to the manager who said he’d say something to our server. Not a very acceptable solution and it didn’t work. Very disappointing. We were just so surprised more than anything. Neither of us are picky people, and would have been satisfied with the bare minimum you often get at restos like that. Sad performance Chevys.

Chevy's has been a go-to restaurant for us since our son was very young. Now the he is 13, and the local Chevy's has closed, we just don't go as often as we used to. The food is reliable and the kind of Tex-Mex we love. Add that this location was open on Christmas Day for dinner and we couldn't be happier. All things considered, this was an outstanding visit! As a family of 3 with no visitors in town, this was a perfect dinner for the holiday! We will keep going back to this location.

The food was FANTASTIC! Had the chicken fajita salad! The restaurant was super noisy and hard to hear each other across the table, but was tolerable. Our server was VERY inattentive. It was obvious he had too many tables, and he did not express concern to us that he was not being of good service. Had to wait a long time after we were finished for our bill and to settle. Food was outstanding, tho. Would still go again.

The noise level was energetic...yes...but not in a good way. The debris from the construction made this experience a lot worse than usual. While it hurt the ambience, the service was also lacking. This location also caters to school groups visiting DC so it was extremely busy. Therefore, despite the food being the same good Chevy's quality, I do not recommend coming here during the spring time, especially while this construction is on-going.

We have always enjoyed Chevy's and were very disappointed when the Merrifield location in Gatehouse Plaza closed. Old friends were in town and lllllsuggested this location for a late lunch. We had apparently missed this location on previous searches for another Chevy's. The food was the typical, satisfying Chevy's. Tacos were tasty, with just the right spices for our family. Fajitas were sizzling, of course. Chevys food is good and reliable, but it is still chain Tex-Mex - you know what you are getting even if it isn't the most "authentic". We had great service, and the whole staff was friendly. We would go back, but we really like Chevy's chips and salsa so we are partial.

We spent at least 2 and a half hours catching up and the staff never pressured us to leave. Even as we ran up against a BIG party (not 10, but by the looks of it 40+) that they were clearly setting up to host the manager very politely came over and asked if we could move. The only complaint isn't about the restaurant, it is the location. The area in Crystal City is undergoing road and building construction and traffic was AWFUL. Parking at the mall was also bad, with lines to get in and lines to get out, with at least one of the exits only taking credit cards and therefore slowing everything down even more.
