The Chevys’ culinary team created a new menu inspired by traditional, authentic and delicious Mexican street food which we were so excited to try. After a long day of Halloween parades and trick or treating, I was all for starting off dinner with a alcoholic beverage. The Prickly Pear Margarita is part of the new Street Style Menu, a cool, refreshing blend of Herrardura Reposado or Silver Tequila paired with the sweet taste of prickly pear. This drink definitely did not disappoint and who wouldn’t want a pink cocktail?
For starters, we went with one of our faves from our last visit, Empanadas. And from the new menu we tried the Street-Style Corn, which is fresh corn seasoned with Chevys’ secret sauce and spices, grilled, then topped with cojita cheese and cilantro. My family and I loved it so much, we had to order another plate!
As for our main entrees, the kids each got an item from the kids menu and hubby went with a steak and enchilada combo. While I chose the Street-Style Tacos that had marinated carne asada with cilantro onion mix, cojita cheese, avocado, lettuce and fire-roasted salsa. The presentation and taste reminded me so much of many taco truck-styles i’ve tried before.
How can we end the dinner without desert? What I love about the kids menu i that they all come with a vanilla ice cream cone and as if that wasn’t enough, we had to try the brownie dessert again. Let’s just say that after a day of candy and more chocolate and ice cream to top it off, bedtime was not as early as it normally is!
Without a doubt, we will be coming back to try more items on the Chevys Fresh Mex Menu. I would even come back just for the chips and salsa alone!
