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 .

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

Too many customers, too few waiters/tress. It may have been the rain that drove people into the restaurant, but it just seemed so chaotic. When we came in and tried to put our name on the wait list, they said it was 45 minutes to 1 hour wait, but if we went upstairs it would be shorter. Well, it wasn't... More

They have happy hour so if you're on a budget make sure to sit downstairs for the happy hour specials; even with family. If you like the quiet and it's happy hour sit upstairs.

Popped in after being on The Ride. Staff helpful and polite. Food okay but not amazing. Felt it was very pricey for a Mexican. Don't think I would return.

I used to go into NYC about once a month and ate at different restaurants based on friends' recommendations. When I spent a week at the Hilton across the street in 2015, I discovered Chevy's and that was it. I don't visit NYC as often these days, but every time I do I stop in for a terrific, reasonably-priced meal.... 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.
