Xperience Restaurant Group (“XRG” or the “Company”), one of the nation's leading operators of casual, polished casual and fine dining Mexican restaurants, today announced the planned opening of its 13,000-square-foot Chevys Fresh Mex flagship restaurant on Las Vegas Boulevard in Summer 2022. The restaurant will be the Company’s largest Chevys location with seating for over 400 guests and featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Las Vegas Strip, T-Mobile Arena and Park MGM.
Since its founding in 1986 in Northern California, Chevys has offered traditional Mexican dishes with California-inspired, Mesquite-fired flavors made-from-scratch every day. Using only fresh, top-quality ingredients in its beloved recipes, Chevys creates rich flavors and delivers superior hospitality to guests across the country. The brand has continued to expand its culinary offerings in recent years by introducing new menu items and dining segments, while opening new locations across the United States.
The grand opening of the Chevys Las Vegas flagship restaurant is a significant milestone in the Company’s continued growth following a successful 2021 and marks the return of the Chevys brand to Nevada. Located at 3767 South Las Vegas Boulevard, the restaurant will feature a Chevys Famous Frozen Margarita Wall with a broad range of flavors that can be taken to-go, as well as a Piñata Private Party Space featuring Olé, the brand’s playful piñata mascot. The restaurant will also offer many grab-and-go offerings like Pounds & Pints, the brand’s popular chips and salsa menu item, available for hotel parties and events.
In keeping with its commitment to providing an unforgettable and enjoyable dining experience, guests will be welcomed to a colorful setting with playful tilework, mismatched rustic chairs and vibrantly colored walls. Guests will enjoy a state-of-the-art audio-visual experience with an array of televisions to enjoy throughout the restaurant and its expansive bar area. With the Las Vegas flagship restaurant, Chevys will have 23 locations across the country.
“We are thrilled to announce our flagship Chevys Las Vegas location. In a city known for its unforgettable experiences, this new location will provide the same authentic and energized atmosphere that the Chevys brand is known for, while featuring brand-new offerings that enhance how we can serve our guests,” said Randy Sharpe, Chief Executive Officer and President at XRG. “With exciting new offerings – such as a one-of-a-kind Frozen Margarita wall and exclusive private party space – plus an array of high quality to-go options, our Las Vegas location will have something for everyone. Chevys has a long heritage of delivering a unique and playful guest experience, and we look forward to building on the business’ incredible momentum in 2022 and beyond.”
