We have not been to Chevys in several years. Our last experience had been terrible. We waited for over an hour, and we were never waited on. Totally ignored. We left without be served or talked to.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Wonderful service, great food, new menu, the manger stopped and checked on us, our waiter was great, table-side prepared salad by a great employee. We were shocked by the change. We will be back.

Service was really, really poor. Staff was a bit disoriented and not attentive at all. Food was ok, but we never got exactly what we ordered. I would not go back.

When we arrived it was sort of busy but the dining area was but half full. It took a few minutes for us to be greeted by the host as she was running back and forth. My brother, my fiancé, and I chose to be seated in the bar area. Our server was very prompt and informative. We ordered a variety of things from the happy hour menu. Everything came out great and delicious.

Arrived ahead of my reservation time and asked to be seated outdoors (2 open tables were visible as I walked by). The hostess told me there was nothing available but I could sit inside. I politely declined and said I would wait. Three minutes later she seated someone at one of the two table I viewed coming in. When I questioned her she told me the person had been there before me. Funny because I saw him come in after me. Without asking I believe one of the managers came to see me and offered me a outdoor table that had become available. The service was slow but the food was good.

Food was decent for the price. No particular dish stood out. Service was lousy. Simple Mexican food order took over 30 minutes and waitstaff seemed disinterested in the delay.

I really enjoyed my time at Chevys. I go often for happy hour. On Sunday I went for the weekend brunch. Instead of getting the brunch me and my friend order the sampler off the regular menu. We also ordered the margaritas. The waitress was nice and pleasant. The staff was very welcoming, establishment was clean and the owner went to all the guest to ensure service was good.

We enjoyed our lunch at Chevy's! The food is fresh and free of MSG. We thought that their homemade salsa and barbacoa were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and the overall experience was great. We will definitely come back the next time we are in Arlington.

Poor service more than 25 mins to get water and a drink. Meal cam incorrect but couldn’t find anyone to help get it resolved. Next time we saw waiter was w the check. And he just said sorry I’ve been busy. Paid left meal on table. No one seemed to care

Chevy's is my wife's favorite restaurant - we went for her 60th birthday and they did not disappoint! Service was fast, food was excellent tasting and came out pretty quickly. We were very glad they were seating for indoor dining. If you're looking for a fun place to eat then Chevy's is the place to go!

The food was terrible. Worst Tex-Mex I've ever had. The sauces were extremely sweet and the cheese in the enchiladas was rubbery. The service was ok- nothing exceptional. But, what gets me is that the prices are quite high for an absolutely terrible product.

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.
