I visited here with my friend on a Friday afternoon around 5:30. When we entered we were greeted by a hostess who asked if we were here for happy hour or regular dining. We had to wait about 5 min for a seated area for happy hour. The drink specials are worth the happy hour alone! I got a $5... More

My fiance had the breakfast buritto which he thoroughly enjoyed! Our waitress was so lovely and so helpful, and couldn't do enough for our time in... More

We had been walking around the city for hours, and decided this would be a good place to stop for a late afternoon lunch. It is in the Theatre District area, and we were seated at a table at the window, to watch the busy world go by. Nice atmosphere inside and out. We ordered the Nachos Grande plate, which... More

We ate here as it was close to attractions we were visiting close to Times Square. We chose the Chevys Super Cinco option and were really disappointed with the food quality. Everything tasted the same and we all got the impression the food had been reheated & not really that well as it was almost look warm. The chile relleno... More

This Chevy's is located in the Heart of times square; There are two floors of seating; great window views,place is always busy and staff is friendly and food is good.Drinks are a little on the strong side and I guess it's good if you are a drinker.

Visited mid-morning for breakfast. Only a few tables occupied, the orders were taken quickly but the wait for the food (2 sets of pancake stacks) was over 45 minutes! Apology provided by the server, but there was no excuse for such a wait. When the pancakes came - we were extremely disappointed. 1 strawberry chopped into small pieces, 2 blueberries... More

Shrimp and crab enchiladas were outstanding. A little expensive but in Times Square so understandable. The queso was pretty good too. Fast service.

Visited today as our tour picked us up outside so decided to go in and wait and order a drink. The guy who served us Sammy was brilliant didn't push us into ordering and suggested drinks. When I said I wasn't that hungry he brought out some amazing cheese and nachos for us to nibble, great service and lovely food... More

I visited here after attending the AMC across the street. Great fresh Mexican food. Happy hour running 4 - 8 pm daily ! Well worth a visit. Great food at a very reasonable price. Strongly recommended, especially if addicted to good chicken fajitas !

Thank Peter B

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.
