Great experience! My cousin who is visiting and I went out to dinner and everything was nice! Our server Sharay was amazing. As busy as she was, she made sure to tend to all our needs and check on us often. The GM, Rudy was also awesome. He was out helping his team and not just in his office like most GM’s do. The food, drinks and ambiance was overall amazing and worth going back!

When we first got in, we were placed at a table in the bar section as happy hour was going on. The waitresses/waiters continued to walk past without taking our order- making eye contact with us, didnt know who was serving us, and didnt even get water. After a while, I decided to move tables after 17 minutes of no service (I really wanted to eat here) I felt like the bar area was too busy. Once we were reseated, we were told we couldn't do happy hour. Even thought we were there well before happy hour ended (ends at 9 here for some reason) no exception was made in our behalf, I know the manager could've done something- but I didnt push the issue. The rest of the night at the practically empty, but busy at the bar restaurant, was okay. If you come for happy hour and have been waiting past a reasonable time to get service, call a manager!

Perfect spot for catching up with friends. The veggie fajitas were the best I have ever had. Great casual spot with plenty of outdoor seating!

Servers were excellent. It was very loud but family friendly in that sense. My tortillas tasted old (the edges were dry like they’d been left out for a while - disappointing because Chevys has its tortilla making machine right up front!)

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.
