Service was not timely. Seems as if the waitress or waiter was in a hurry. I ordered tacos chicken and beef. Both came back cold. I asked if that was the way it was supposed to be. No we will get you another and it came out just as cold. If I wanted a taco salad that is what I would have ordered. Chips, salsa and drinks are their forte. So beware!

Awful place. Tortilla chips deep fried and dripping in really rank oil. Ordered vegetable fajitas for $16.99. Was given a portion of grilled veggies, 1 carrot, 6 green beans, 3 slices of courgette and some strips of onion nothing else at all with it. Tasted bland had no spices or flavouring! Partner ordered steak tacos $16.49. You had to search to find any steak, Was dripping in grease and was such a small portion it wouldnt feed a small child. Was so bad he left more than he ate. Ladies toilets were disgusting loo roll everywhere **** up the walls, no locks on doors and flush not working in some. Worse restaurant I have ever been to, avoid!

This is not my first visit to a Chevy's, but this by far my worst. The restaurant looked great from the sidewalk, and the prospect of mid-day margharita's was wonderful. Everything took a turn for the worse once we committed to sitting down. The restaurant as a whole smelled like a urinal cake in Tijuana. It was strong and putrid. My group felt it would subside over time and it didn't. We ordered 2 rounds of Margarhita's which were quite good, especially the spicy mango. We also ordered Nachos for the table. Mind you this is a tex mex place where nachos should be great, but these nachos were something i'd see in a bar in Canada. Unchopped protein, poor layering, and subpar taste. If you craving Tex Mex, don't count on having a good experience at Chevy's Time Square. You're better off having a Corona and burrito at Chipotle.

Okay, this isn't the nicest place in the world, but the food is good. It's no more heart-attack-inducing than anything else that tastes good in a restaurant, and if you want healthy food then you should just cook your own dinner. Maybe ordering something MEXICAN would aid in judging the quality of food in a mexican restaurant, btw (just a thought).
The turnover in this kind of place is ASSURED to be bad because tips in chain restaurants (especially touristy areas like 42nd St) are horrible, and therefore you have about a 50/50 shot at receiving bad service from a disgruntled employee who is mulling whether or not to quit that night. There are better ways to run a business than allowing that kind of turnover to persist, but nonetheless it's nothing remarkable or unique to Chevy's.
But expecting to get your meal for free because you saw a rodent?! Get real people. It's New York. There isn't a restaurant in the world that doesn't have them AND spend lots of money trying to keep them out. In fact this is true everywhere else in the country as well. Ridiculous reason for getting a meal free, especially if the food was good. How do you justify that - emotional damages?
To sum it up, Chevy's offers tasty food but with only a touch of authenticity (good tamales), annoying music and decor, average too poor service, a great selection of tequilas and nice margaritas, OH and the off change that you will see a rodent run across the floor on it's way to dessert at Bennigan's.

After our 1 hour wait for 3, we got a raw hamburger, not cooked to order, french fries straight from heart attack land. Our server not only couldn't speak english, but was too concerned about her tip that she forgot about my table. Their canner great meat is skirt steak which is short for diaphram, not to mention the dry rice. Their so called ""Fresh Mex'' cuisine looked like it sat around while my friends and I starved and wanted to leave. It's funny that their owner isn't even Mexican. IF I COULD GIVE THEM ZERO STARS, I WOULD!

I went to the place with a friend last night before catching a movie. When we got there the place seemed ok, our drinks came quickly and so did our food. However, halfway through the meal we saw a small rodent running across the floor! right through the middle of the restaurant! this was on the second floor and the place was kind of empty so nobody noticed except for us and a couple next to us. The manager came over and apologized, said it was construction across the street. Did not even offer to give us the meal for free, she just apologized and said they had small problem and were taking care of it. On top of all of that the employees were not friendly at all. Needless to say I will NEVER go back there again.

It was the worst dining experience of my life,.... I was refered to this place by a friend of mine and she told me the food was tasteful, however i never got a chance to eat. I arrived at the place at 2pm i was seated and was given chips, and watery SALSA. For 45 minutes i was waiting for my meal. Two couples that came in 20 minutes after i had arrived was given their food before me. When i seen the first couple get their food i was patient, and said ok let's see how long it will take me to get my food. As i waited i saw the oher couple get thier food, and my order was not that long. After i saw that i got up from my seat and left......It was the WORST DINING EVER, and i would not GLANCE AT THIS PLACE IN BIRDS EYE VEIW! I would not tell anyone to eat here if it was the last place to eat at on earth... oh yeah i went right down the street to Mc Donald's....
