CHEVYS on the 192
Chevys Tex Mex is one of my favourite places to eat in Orlando. Located on the US 192 it is well renowned to for being the best Mexican restaurant near to all the villas and hotels in that area. Both myself and Melanie have been to this restaurant almost every time we have stayed in Orlando.
Located just past the large Walmart on east 192 it is around 10 minutes from various communities (Terre Verde, Rolling hills, Emerald Island and many of the villa communities on this website). Is is a great place to go if you feel the urge to go out and eat rather than cooking for yourselves in the villa. And we all know we are on vacation and need a treat now and again.
Being a Mexican restaurant most of the dishes are orientated around spicy food, but you can get other food that is not so spicy. Where Chevy’s Tex Mex is better than any I have eaten at before is the fact that all ingredients are freshly made to order. No matter what dish you order they are prepared using all fresh food, not stuff that has been frozen. This gives the food its unique taste.
When we go we normally have the large FREE nachos to start. These are very large and can fill you up very quickly, however as they are so good you normally have 2 helpings! Again they are fresh, with their own special salsa sauce.
For the main dishes you can choose between a variety of food. Mainly Chicken, beef and pork orientated. There are Fajitas, Burritos, Steaks, and tachos. In-fact there are so many dishes it takes a good 10 minutes to view all of them. I always tend to go for the Fajitas (no matter what is on the menu) but as for Mel she has had the Burritos (enough for 2) and the tachos, both very nice indeed.
Price wise Chevy’s is very reasonable and works out at very good value for money for what you actually get. On all dishes they are that big you could feed 2 people on them. For a meal for 2 with wine we normally pay around $35-40. This is including taxes and starters.
If I would rate this restaurant on a scale of 1 -10 I would definitely rate Chevy’s around 9 out of 10. It really is that good. Would I recommend it to friends and family, yes I would, only go easy on the nachos starter and leave some room for the main course!
