Been eating here for years but things have really slipped. I have lots of food allergies and its a great test for the kitchen. They failed. My husband was not impressed either. Hopefully we just hit a off night...

We found this gem while biking from Canada to San Diego. It was within walking distance of our hotel and the food and service were great. The food is very tasty and the service is fast and friendly. Great place, we'll be back the next time we pass through Santa Rosa.

We were staying at the hotel la rose and this seemed to be lively so we decided to give it a go. Big mistake, I should have read the reviews first. Wait time was extremely long and I overheard our waiter and another gentleman arguing as the waiter felt they were too short staffed to take any patrons. I should... More

The location of this Chevy's is near the old Railroad Depot in Railroad Square District, which makes this a nice place to go for a meal. Now regarding the meal...I would have to say the chips and salsa are great. We had the Fresh Mex combo of a beef taco and chicken enchilada with rice (no beans - don't care... More

We have eaten in Chevy's in various parts of the US and have loved them. We have never had a meal this bad. We ordered the fajita nachos - hard to mess up you would think! Well, they did! The first batch they bought out - the cheese wasn't even melted, we could find a couple of pieces of chicken... More

This is a nice building with nice decorations. The food is basic mexican. Fajitas are the best bet. The fish tacos were a disappointment, not made of fresh seafood.

We've tried this Chevy's location a few times and just have to finally give it up. The chips and salsa are awesome. The staff really goes above and beyond to give good service, but the meals we've had just don't hit the mark. This may be a great place to gather for a quick beer or drink, but I would... More

Dropped into Chevy's one evening, on our visit up to Santa Rosa, and were made very welcome! Sat down at a table in the bar, the staff were so very helpful and friendly. Sorted suitable beers and cocktails - great recommendations! - the menu was explained, as it was our first visit. Once decided and ordered, the food quite quickly... More

We have been unsatisfied the last 2 times we have eaten at Chevys. The food was of a lesser quality, the service was lacking to the point of ridiculous, and it was very noisy. The prices are twice what many local Mexican restaurants are charging where the food is good and fresh unlike Chevys. Chevys could stand a good cleaning... More
