I’ve been a fan of Chevys Fresh Mex ever since my first visit to the Linden, NJ location. I haven’t been there in quite some time so naturally, I was looking forward to our recent visit! If you haven’t experienced Chevys Fresh Mex, They’re a full-service restaurant with an atmosphere that resembles a Mexican cantina. They serve up an impressive range of Mexican dishes that are made from scratch using only fresh, top-quality ingredients.
New Street Style Food Menu!
My husband and I we excited to try offerings from the Street Style Food menu during our recent visit. The menu is available for a limited time at Chevys Fresh Mex locations in Clifton and Linden. Foods and drink specials include:
- Street-Style Corn– fresh corn seasoned with Chevys’ secret sauce and spices, grilled, then topped with cojita cheese and cilantro
- Street-Style Tacos– Choice of marinated grilled chicken, carne asada or slow-roasted carnitas, served taco truck style, with cilantro onion mix, cojita cheese, avocado, lettuce and fire-roasted salsa
- Prickly Pear Margarita– A cool, refreshing blend of Herrardura Reposado or Silver Tequila paired with the sweet taste of prickly pear
- Sam Adams Rebel IPA– The first west coast style IPA from the same brewers that were part of the Craft Beer Revolution of 1984, this brew has a variety of hops including America Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo
While we looked over the Street Style Food menu, My husband and I ordered beef Empanadas. The soft pastry shells stuffed with the freshest ingredients and come with dipping sauces. I enjoyed the beef empanadas and would love to try the chicken when we visit again!
Street Style Tacos
My husband ended up getting the steak Street Style Tacos while I ordered the chicken. This isn’t my first time having street tacos but I can honestly tell you that the Street Style tacos at Chevys Fresh Mex are the best I’ve had so far! I think what really had me loving these is the use of flour tortillas versus corn tortillas that I’ve tried in local Mexican restaurants.
My hubby and I topped are tacos off with a little bit of lime juice and some avocado. This is actually my husband’s first time giving avocado a try and he loved it! The combination cilantro onion mix, cojita cheese and fresh ingredients made for a delicious meal bursting with flavor!
Even with full bellies, we ordered dessert! we ordered Oreo Deep-Fried Ice Cream which was creamy and rich with flavor. The creamy vanilla ice cream is rolled in a in a crispy coating and deep fried. It’s served on a layer of cinnamon-dusted tortilla strips. I highly recommend ordering this or the regular Deep-Fried Ice Cream from the dessert menu!
The menu is available at Chevys Fresh Mex locations in Clifton and Linden for a limited time! Head into Chevy’s today to give it a try! For more information, visit www.chevys.com.
