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

Great table side guac and great cadillac margarita! I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would return here. The quesadilla dinner was great and we loved everything we ordered.

The restaurant was very busy and understaffed. There was a motorcycle rally in nearby Hollister and it seemed as though the restaurant was completely unprepared. The food was good and the server was nice but we had to hunt her down when we wanted something. Our dirty plates sat in front of us for a while and we were unable... More
