Not that it’s likely to happen on the Route 1 corridor, but would love to see a better quality Mexican restaurant come in, like Guapo’s.

I hated the smell of that place. It never smelled clean. I love Mexican food, but theirs had so much sodium, that I would wake up the night after eating there to guzzle water. Bartenders were disinterested and would rather check their phones than their patrons. People will give you a chance, but if you continuously disappoint, they will not come back.

This place had some good food but it always amazed me just how terrible their Chili Rellenos were. The drinks were way over priced as well. Put in an Uncle Julio's please!

Nothing special at this cookie cutter, Mexican chain restaurant. Not surprised they are moving on. Mount Vernon and Alexandria have numerous one of a kind, authentic Mexican and Latin food options that are a great value with some great tasting dishes. Pillars near the Huntington Metro Station has great food made to order as does Pollo Ranchero near Kings Crossing. You may wait a few minutes longer for the preparation but the taste and quality are worth it. Also prefer to support a locally owned family enterprise than chains.

My son will miss Chevy's the most. Since he is only 4 y/o he doesn't really have an educated pallet, but he always loved the corn cake. He actually cried for 10 minutes when we tried to go for dinner after they had closed. I have to agree with some of the comments above though. A few times we received queso that was just to salty to eat! I could feel by blood pressure rising! Their normal (male) bartender was just strange! We tried ordering drinks several times and they ALWAYS were terrible when he made them. Whenever he wasn't tending bar, it was fine, but he seemed the be the main bartender. Too bad! It would be wonderful to have Guapo's or Uncle Julio's take that location, but in the mean time we go to El Paso, at the Cooper Road location. They have very good and authentic Mexican food. They are a small family owned restaurant which we like to support as well, just like Guapo's!
