Chevy's has decent food for a chain. Service in the bar seems better than in the restaurant. Love their chips and salsa as well as their freshly made tortillas. Lots of TVs spread around the bar so it is great for watching games--especially during Happy Hour. Outdoor seating is also available with heaters. Nice!

This was the worst experience I have had at any Chevy's. They served a lump of something yellow they called rice and another lump of something that was to be refried beans, but clearly was not. My wife got the same lump even though she had asked for whole beans. My fajitas was pieces of burnt unknown meat. My wife's... More

This location was in the same area I was staying for business and was walking distance. I have visited this chain in other location and have always enjoyed it. Happy hour prices already good with plenty of choices for an inexpensive meal while traveling for work.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner. She ordered a raspberry Margarita and I had a beer. They came back because they were out of raspberry mix so blackberry it was. She had two sips of it. She couldn't get past the taste of the tequila in the drink. The food was good and served quickly. Friendly service.

The tortilla machine is gone, but the food still remains great. The la chara beans are great, and I am not a fan of beans. all the menu items area safe bet here, if disappointed, let them know, they will make it right. Soda was never empty.

The food is still very good and the wait staff attentive, but management does not have enough help. This was a Wednesday night and there were only about 10 tables. Not sure what is happening, but this used to be one of the busiest restaurants in town on any night of the week.

Forgot how much I like the fresh salsa. Pretty good prices on all the menu choices. Should have had fried ice cream as my starter. Yummy.

We love Chevys, but they seem to be having management problems. The Chevys in our area closed and the one in Mountain View closed, and now we're concerned that this Chevys may close soon too. The people at the front desk said that it would be a half hour wait because the wait staff was overwhelmed with too many tables.... More

It was a long wait. They were out of several items on the kids menu. The pictures on the menu looked a lot better than it actually was. Our waiter was kind and attentive but that was the only positive about the visit. The bathroom also needed attention. We don't need to go back.
