Friendly staff and good food!

We went to Chevys in Gilroy after traveling all day. It was busy but they were able to seat 5 of us immediately. The food was good and service was prompt. The bathrooms needed attention but like I said, it was busy.

This is a standard chain Mexican restaurant. The dining room is open and a bit bare in furniture. Food is standard commercial Mexican food, nothing to get excited about. It seems to be better known for it's drink specials then anything else.

Used to be good! Very dirty, no one seems to take care of the place. Slow service, by inattentive staff. Mediocre food, at best. We won't be coming back.

This is a very popular restaurant with the local community. When they say "Fresh" they mean it. I was sitting where I could see the kitchen and watched as they prepped the food. Nothing out of jars or plastic bags. They chopped, sliced, made fresh salsa, etc. blended fresh fruit for drinks. We go there every time we stay in... More

We walked in about 1:30 for mid week lunch and the place was rather empty. We got the menu and chips right away and then waited for service. After about 15 minutes I stopped a waiter and asked for help and was told that he would take care of us. Our Chicken Cobb Salads came very fast. Our impression was... More

We are fans of Chevys and excited to see one as we traveled a new area. Food was good. Lots of it! Staff were friendly. It was during lunch and it was not overly busy. My only complaint: I was disappointed in the cleanliness of the women's restroom. It was filthy and for the restaurant to only have been open... More
