First, the food was pretty good. Fajitas were great, my daughter's picadillo beef taco was good and my son was overstuffed by his tamale and chimichanga. The atmosphere is ok considering that we were only a couple blocks from Times Square and not exactly near anything Southwest. The restaurant is huge with plenty of seating and we didn't "need" a...

Service is good but the food is very bland. Probably not the best restaurant to go to but their drinks seems a little better.

We stumbled into Chevys based on where we got off our bus. They were conveniently located and ready to serve. The staff was good and so was the food. The only thing wrong with Chevys was all the "stuff" we as customers could see as we went to and from the restrooms. If it were not for that, I would... More

This Chevy's is two floors. We at upstairs and they were able to get us out in an hour. We thought we weren't going to make it because after we sat down there wasn't a lot of hired help to be seen, then after about 40 minutes the food came out of the kitchen. Don't know if they always staff... More

I would avoid this one - food was exceptionally slow , eventually had to ask after 60 mins if it was coming , it then appeared , service was at best described poor. The place was not busy l can see why. Much better places to eat in NYC and at cheaper prices .

We ate here today after going to the Auto show at the Javits Center. We were seated upstairs quickly and our waitress, Elizabeth, was friendly. Our service was intermittent though and my dish was cold but Elizabeth made a whole new dish for me which was appreciated. The food is ok. It's fast food Mexican so it's not authentic but... More

Any time I'm in the Times Square area, I hit Chevy's. Today, as I was being seated, I told the host that I was kinda in a hurry. He asked if I knew what I wanted. I gave him my order and my food was out in no time! I usually order the Shrimp & Crab Enchiladas. It is served... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
