Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar Ratings and Reviews
The Chayo website, the big menu out front and the regular menus all say 50% off Taco Tuesday. When we asked about it the waitress told us that was no longer available but we got a free beer instead. The trouble was, that is what we came for and not all of us drink beer. Change the menu or honor your offer.
Extremely happy with this choice. Originally planned for dinner at Guy Fieri's but the wait was 2 hours, Chayo got us in within 15 minutes. Server was outstanding, extremely knowledgable, didn't interfere with our conversation, and added just the right about of upselling to make our meals that much better. They're margaritas were good and the tequila list was impressive, but not over the top expensive. Food was a good qauility and the menu wasn't overloaded with Tex Mex - had plenty of authentic Mexican dishes which is hard to find on the strip. Have already recommended this place to friends and will for sure be back. I think our server was Kyle? ask for him!
Food overall was good, but the service and speed was poor at best. Way too long of a wait for drinks(15 minutes after ordering) apps (30+ minutes after ordering then another 10+ minutes for chips to go with it) food (75+ minutes after ordering). I would give them a bit of slack for being during CES, but when you sit down for dinner at 8:30 and leave after 10:30 immediately after finishing dinner that's disappointing, we aren't talking about a 5 course meal.
I got the Chicken Tinga Tacos- No taste at all to the chicken. I ordered the house margarita and the bartender never washed out the mixer and it had an awful coconut taste to it. SOO many other places with much better food, I would definitely pass on this place.
We were a party of 8 for brunch. I ordered the Chayo Margarita which according to the menu was a blood orange margarita. I received a regular margarita. When I questioned the server u was told that they recently changed the menu and now it was a regular margarita. Shouldn't I had been told that when I placed my order???
Two of us ordered breakfast skillets which had limited amount of food and skillets did not come out sizzling. Skillets were advertised with eggs " any way you want it" only to find out that apparently they don't do poached eggs. So it's not really " any way you want it."
The service was poor as I made a reservation on open table and arrived on time and was seated on time. The hostess canceled my open table reservation an hour after we were seated and was eating. I did not get create for the booking. The waiter did not know the cost for the cork fee on a bottle of wine we brought in and second he did not know how to open it. He handed me the bottle opener and asked me to open the wine. I said no since I'm paying the 25.00 cork fee. One setting of the silverware and plate was dirty so we asked several times for clean ones. The appetizer was made at the table (guacamole) but no new plate or silverware yet. Finally the waiter did not know how to charge the room at the hotel the restaurant was in (Linq). I would give the food a second chance but ask for another waiter.
A decent Mexican restaurant in the fast-growing alley between the LINQ and Flamingo. My meal (tacos) were quite authentic and fresh. My group had a few pitchers of margaritas, which were good but a little pricey. But hey, it is Vegas! Be sure to make reservations on a weekend, as it fills up fast.
First off the bat, if your a sports fan this place is the best place to hang out. I had the best Carnitas tacos in a very long time. The rice and beans that came with it was just as good. The only thing that surprised us was the fact that our waiter never offered/mentioned to us their drink specials. Which by the way was the same drink that my wife had ordered. She could have had twice the size of a drink with a few dollars more. Service could have been a little faster but then again it's all good.
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.
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.
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.
