After reading the reviews and seeing where the restaurant was ranked overall in the city, I decided to try Chevy's anyway because it was within walking distance of my hotel and 3:00 pm in the afternoon because of travel. I was pleasantly surprised. The salsa was fantastic. Obviously fresh and tasty with the right amount of heat. I also ordered... More

Chevy's is a good place if you have loud kids because the restaurant is usually busy enough to cover them up. The food is really funny- sort of made-up Mexican food but it can be good. It's sort of hit and miss. My son loves his ribs and my husband's fajita salad was good. My tortilla soup seemed to have... More

I was staying at the Garden Inn next door and ate twice. I had the chicken, corn, Chipotle enchiladas. The first time was great... The second time was served cold and incompletely cooked or warmed. I think the recipe is great but whoever cooked it the second night wasn't paying attention.

This restaurant was convienent to our hotel and offered drinks and food for tex mex fans. At time times the service was slow, but that may have been isolated. The food is good and hot and the atmosphere is fine for a casual drink in the cantina if you like.

I was in Fairfield for twelve days and got to enjoy Chevy's twice while there. I loved the food, the wait staff could get a little distracted, but it worked out in the end.

As a vegetarian it's hard to find good food at restaurant chains but Chevys makes it easy! Fresh and delicious. Also they locally source a lot of stuff is awesome. Sometimes the lines are long but I'm okay with that because I know they are preparing each persons order just as they want it and perfection takes time so be... More

Took a couple of clients out for Mexican and found this gem. The food, atmosphere, and service were great. Can't wait to visit Fairfield again to have that experience again.

This Chevy's had a different menu from the nearby Vallejo location. What was nicer about this one is that it was much quieter. The menu was different as well. Great waitress!
