There is nothing like gathering with your favorito amigos in a great atmoshpere and being showered with a seemingly endless parade of scrumtious food and adult beverages. Judging from the response to Wednesday night's "Livin' La Vida Fresca Uno" at Chevys on the River, no one seems to understand this better that Chevys!
Chevys Fresh Mex launched a brand revitalization this year, returning to its border cantina roots and putting the focus back on its fresh standards with revamped menus, new creative elements and an enhanced guest experience. From moment one, it showed.
Their expansive indoor and outdoor upstairs area (with breathtaking views of the river) was a virtual wonderland of all the amazing elements Chevys is known for, starting with "fresh Mex" that would make any actual Mexican drool with envy. Ridiculously beautiful servers marched out tray after tray of shrimp, chicken and steak skewers, chicken and beef taquitos ("The mango salsa was very refreshing and a nice textural complement to the crispiness of the taquito," exclaims Derick F), and according to Karla Marie D, "incredible mouth-watering crab and shrimp flautas that I couldn't get enough of. The food was on point!" There were even brownies for dessert that were "so moist and chocolatey, I wanted to lick the napkins," admits Anthony P.
The grub was easily rivaled by the free-flowing drinks, which included Chevy's huge, famous margaritas in multiple flavors, fruity shots and what was called a "Bulldog" - basically a margarita with a mini-Corona attached for extra flavor and kick. Everything was made with quality El Jimador tequila! Reports Diane S: "You'd think after a pomegranate, tequila and squirt concoction, a margarita with a beer in it, a shot of El Jimador and a Corona, I'd be done for, but nope. I feel like a million bucks! Which speaks to the quality of the tequila that Chevys serves up!"
We could go on and on, but let's let influential elite Darina H sum it up: "The service was AMAZING. Even the manager came around to greet us and thank us for coming, such a nice gesture. Just when my belly almost began to explode from a regular belly to a food baby belly, we left with such contentment in our hearts and stomach...only to find that they had goodie bags for us on our way out and free sombreros and shirts!!! SO NICE! QUE BUENO!"
Her assessment is echoed in the 5-star reviews from numerous elite and non-elite yelpers who swear to return and spread the word about this wonderful, revitalized Chevy's locale! Check out the photos from Phil Isidro of everyone's happy, smiling faces! At Chevys, there’s always a reason for a fiesta!
