On a road trip with the family, two cars, three kids, grandparents, and no dogs. Stopped for gas a dinner on a Sunday, early evening. Decided on Chevys as our kids and grandkids enjoy Mexican and had been to others of this chain. We were seated immediately in an area that looked out onto the fairly busy covered, outdoor seating....

Would consider atmosphere has a reflective feeling of being in Mexico. Food was palatable, flavor that you can enhance for the non-squimish individual who would like to kick it up a few notches but served to provide a well balanced meal. Steak fajitas are my favorite to be eatened not wolfed down so you can appreciate the grilled flavor. Fresh... More

We have lived here for 15 years and Chevy's Gilroy is one of our favorites. The food is creative (frequent menu changes) and always well prepared. The wait staff is always bright and cheerful and glad to see you. I have read comments from people who have been there once who judged the cleanliness and wait time in accurately-neither of... More

The waitress (didn't catch her name, unfortunately) was very efficient and kept checking to make sure everything was ok. Food was excellent, large portions. Great atmosphere. HAs a sports bar with large TV screens. Only issue: Flies. Not infested to make you disgusted with the place, but just interrupts your meal once in a while.

We stopped at this Chevy's after flying all day from Florida and then driving south from Oakland...delayed flights, bumper to bumper traffic you name it. They must have known we were starving because our food came in record time. I have no idea how they even had time to make it. Not only was the food fast, but I was... More

When we come to this Chevy's we always have a back-up plan. There are times when the service is o.k. The fajitas are our favorite because my husband and I can share one order and they are so delicious and unique to only Chevy's. But due to the inconsistent service we find ourselves going to other restaurants more and more.... More

Nice food on a busy Friday night. Table in the bar area as main restaurant busy. Service was very good and food delicious. The chicken quesadillas were very tasty and filling. Happy hour helped keep the price of our meal very low. Good atmosphere. Strawberry and raspberry margarita was really nice.

The food at this location has always been excellent. Service has been top drawer and any problems we've had were immediately addressed. Highly recommend, especially the specials in the cantina during happy hour..

Everything used to be so good - really the best of the entire chain but now, it is lacking. First they re-did the decor to make more room, now the food isn't as tasty & there has been a big turnover in staffing. Smaller portions, higher prices, new dishes with fewer options. Too bad but I still love the prickly... More
