Great Service, Good food!!

It has been years since my husband and I have been to Chevys and we are glad we decided to go. The staff was on top of things from the moment we walked in, all the way to the end of the visit. Even the lady that busses the table was a gem! She always made sure we had chips... read more

Like the price and the food. And will go again for that reason. Dislike that children are allowed in bar area, there is a family dining room, they need to go there, not the bar.

Had dinner last Saturday while in Gilroy for the weekend shopping! Restaurant was absolutely packed! But we had great service and a great meal, which always happens at a Chevy's restaurant. Friendly wait staff! Kept bringing the chips and salsa. Chevy's salsa is the best I have every had! Brought our drinks quickly, which were reasonably priced for happy hour--$4.99... More

I've eaten at Chevy's in IL and the food was just as good in Gilroy as in Schaumburg, IL. Service was a little slow. Took over 10 minutes to even order drinks.

Had lunch here on road trip to San Francisco. Not crowded at all on a Monday about 11:00 am. But when we walked in, the place seemed a bit dark and dirty. Couldn’t really put my finger on it. We were seated by an unenthusiastic hostess, and our table seemed sticky. Maybe it was just the texture of the table.... More

We stopped for a quick lunch and basically enjoyed the experience . The first employee encounter was with the hostess who was Hispanic - American... She offered NO smiles, it felt to me that she didn't like us, weird. The food was fresh, tasty, and served promptly by a very nice waitress. The chips need help, I feel that good... More

A large restaurant with a varied menu. Fresh tortillas and chips, with very good salsa. Had the fish tacos which I would not recommend (like fish sticks in a tortilla - - I am used to better), but everything else was very good.

Change in management and menu has brought this place ten steps back. 3 out if 3 of our last visits we left before ordering because if the lack of service.

We visited on a Wednesday evening with a party of six. Our meal took about 50 minutes to get to our table. The server never came back to check on us to see how our food was or to refresh our drinks. They brought the wrong meal out for for my girlfriend. We had to go find the server to... More
