Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was decent, but service was lacking ...
Food was decent, but service was lacking. I had shrimp tacos, which were excellent. My husband had the mahi tacos, but he said they were dry. Service was friendly, but slow. Servers also kept bringing random stuff to our table that we didn't order (for example, an order of tacos with dessert, and extra appetizers). Even though we refused these items, a few showed up on our bill. Then we asked the waitress to split the bill evenly on a few cards (usually an easy request), but somehow one person ended up with 80% of the bill. The ambiance was a little too dark and quiet for a casual Mexican restaurant.

Was a Thursday and they close that day at 12am....we were at the patio....the waiter gave to me friend a plastic cup at 11:30 and they where moving tables from patio to inside...practically they kicked us out. Service and food nothing special

So so food and cocktails. The margarita was overly sweet (probably the mixer). The salad was fresh but had very sour dressing. The queso fundido was pretty watered down and not nearly as good a what we have had at other restaurants. The price was not worth the quality. At least the warm chips and salsa were good.

Tables were gross. Lots of food between the cracks. Food was OK. Didn't provide us with plates or check up on us after giving us food. Used the Groupon taco platter coupon. The nachos for the avacado and salsa were nothing special and no cheese. Overall wasn't that motivated to eat the nachos, tacos were OK, but didn't fill me up. Not worth the money. Still cost us $40 in the end and left unsatisfied.

My only complaint involved the waiter forgetting thingfs, I.E. extra tortillas. He also dropped 2 of the 4 entress, which I know happens, but no apologies from a manager or any suggestions on how to make things right.

There's a new drink menu and its not like the one they had before. Just so different. The food was good - but we like to drink and always look forward to the fun drinks. Not any longer. We would be totally happy and willing to come back as long as the old drink menu was back in place.

We dined here during vacation in Vegas. We must have visited on an off night for our waiter. Other tables around us received their food quickly, but we had a very long wait from the time of order until our food arrived, and then some of the items were lukewarm.
Decent place to eat
Eaten here twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times food was decent but nothing to write home about. Good enough to go back though. Service for dinner was a little slow. Service for lunch was very good. They also have a mechanical rooster that you can ride if dinner isn't exciting enough on its own.
Enjoyed Our Evening
Visited with our dear friends from the East coast and the experience was very good. We wanted to sit outside on the patio which has limited seating and staff were very accommodating. Our server, Oscar, recommended some fine margaritas and beer with appetizers. He also told us about the special, TACO TUESDAY, and helped us navigate through the menu. The service was outstanding and the food tasted fresh and was cooked perfectly. The patio seating was great for people watching and cool despite the temperature hovering around 100 degrees. We will definitely return when we visit Las Vegas again.

The food, drinks and atmosphere is wonderful. We had appetizers, margaritas, and various main courses during our time at Chayo. It is a bar / restaurant with high ceilings, wonderful decor and oh yay, a mechanical bull for evening time. We enjoyed our time At the restaurant, after a long three days The. Convention Center. It was a great dining experience to enjoy the evening.

The food was terrific! The outdoor seating, though limited, was wonderful with great Vegas "people watching". The hostess was unfriendly from the start (not so much as a slight smile) and the service was impossibly bad. They "share" servers and the result is that no one is directly accountable. There was not a manager to be found all night and we were completely finished with our food prior to receiving our second round of drinks. One of the waiters came by and asked "how are you doing" clearly not even realizing that we were all sitting there with no drinks and done with our food. He blamed it on Happy Hour and walked away without even clearing a single plate. All of our plates were still sitting there when we left and two of our orders were completely wrong. When I paid the $300 bill, I asked to have the card back right away (chased the server down at the bar)as we were headed to a show. He did not arrive with the receipt for signature for another fifteen minutes. I asked for a manager's card on the way out and the hostess literally just said "no, we don't have those". I stated that the service was very poor and she just walked away. Will definitely never return and we are Locals that do the Strip and Linq all the time.

Amazing food! Great view if you sit outside, people watching. If you sit inside you get to watch people ride the mechanical bull! After 10, I think, they clear the bar area and it turns into a dance floor! LOVED! Absolutely will go back!
Not very good
My husband I are locales and were there on Cinco de Mayo. We had margaritas, guac. (tableside) and split the grilled fish tacos. The margaritas were way to sweet, gauc. was just ok and the fish was very dry. The service was great and people were very friendly but the food was so bad we will not return.
Is a waste of a restaurant
Read the other review and you will find how awful this is. I wish I had read first. I cannot believe that Management has allowed this to be associated with it. We all ordered Strip Steaks. Needed a chainsaw to cut it. It tasted like it cut,and I ordered it Rare. The others business acociates could not believe bad this food was. Should have known by all empty. Seats.
Terrible service and ok food
Nice location on Linq promenade with good outdoor seating for people watching. Food is pretty decent and tastes fresh. For their service, though... We were promptly sat, and the server came over shortly after. Initial meeting went well and we ordered margaritas, chips and dip, and our entrees. Margs came out quick and were pretty good. We expected our chips and dip to come out soon after but 20 min later- still no chips and dip, and no waitress in sight. At 25 min after getting our drinks, out comes the chips, dip, and our entrees. My husband told the waitress about the issue of all our food arriving together, rather than the app of chips and dip coming out first. She then said, "oh that's how it's supposed to come out". To which we replied that apps come out before entrees and now our entrees would get cold if we were to enjoy the chips and dip. She shrugged, walked off, and avoided us the rest of the time until she cleared some plates and brought the check. At that point and for the next 10 min or so, my husband was still eating on the chips, and she circled by to grab the check 3 times. We were obviously still eating and hanging out so I could not understand that behavior of trying to rush us (and no, they weren't busy). We only wish we had spoken to a manager at the time but were too irritated to deal with it then.
We had a group of six for dinner. Our waitress was fantastic however she had too many tables and could not keep up. A large group came in after we did and we think our food got mixed up with theirs because when we finally received our food everyones meal was cold.
Not what I thought it was
I was not impressed with Chayo. I had made reservations for my birthday and when I showed up at the time of the reservations I still had to wait 15 to 20 minutes for a table because my table was not ready yet. The service was horrible. My waitress waited AN HOUR to just take our order. She didn't even take everyone's order! She took 3 of my guests orders then left and came back 30 minutes later to take the rest of the orders. She kept getting our drinks wrong, giving us tea when we actually asked for a soda. Our food took almost an hour to be prepared. And when it came down to the bill, the waitress mixed up two of my guests money! So they had to sit there for 20 minutes while they went over who ordered what and how much change each guest needed back. One of my guests told her (the waitress) it was my birthday (which was the reason we made the reservations there in the first place) and the waitress just told me happy birthday and that was it! I was not impressed at all. The only good feed back I have is that the food was great. But its disappointing that the service was not.
Good water service.
We were never sure who was our server and did a fair amount of waiting at the table. The rice was good, as was my one glass of wine. The food was not too great and all we ordered was lobster tacos and carnitas tacos. A side order of corn was good.... the corn and rice were the best but doesn't qualify it as a good meal. Would not go back there again. There are a lot of really good restaurants in Las Vegas so, unless you're there to drink and sit outside to people watch, go somewhere else.
Always perfect, except this time 😡
When I get at the restaurant I ask for my reservation and the hostages send me inside the restaurant with all my family and my guests, was difficult to get trough all the the tables and the hostages told me that is nothing she can do. When finally get inside the restaurant nobody was helping me and they said inside was packed because it was a fight . I explained I wasn't there for the fight at the TV. My visit was because the foods. So they decided to sent me outside and look for a table myself. The waitress was ok but she forgot to bring me my drinks. The food was good but wasn't the same I order first time I was there. I order the chicken, beef and shrimp fajitas and queso fundido with choriso. They bring no rice or nopales or beens, was only 2 pack of small tortillas for 5 people and after they bring my food the waitresses never came back not event for the money. It really was a bad service . The taste of the food is delicious but the service from the personal since I walk in with recervation until the end was the worst service. 😡
Sat us down and didn't come back. Picture girl came by to sell us on a photo opp before a waiter even brought us water. Took longer to get a drink than it did to get our tasteless $9 guacamole. Got our food and no one even asked if it was OK. The only thing they brought quickly was our bill. Never again.
Came here later in the night. Service is lacking. Server was not atttentive at all. He stop by once we got seated and never take our drink order. He didn't come back till like 10mins later. We order our drinks and food all together. Waited like at least 30 mins for sine tacos and fajita. The restaurant is not even half full. For the amount of customer in the house, food shouldn't have take that long. I know cause I work in 1. Refills on our drinks is near non existence, got to flag him down. Not sure if he got too many tables or just lack of service since we did not order alcohol. My guest and I drank at the diamond lounge before we head over for dinner. Food was really good, the baked beans can use more cooking time, beans kinda still in the hard side. I got no complaint other than the lack of service.
