I liked the "vibe" of the place, the attitude od the staff (nearing fifty, don't remember the last time when I was asked for an ID when ordering a beer - though that was a joke).

As far as Chevy's goes this is a good one. I do take out once a week and they are always perfect. The 4 is not quality or anything but rating of Chevy's as a chevy's. I certainly would recommend going here if that is what you are looking for. Clean, service is good, bar has nice atmosphere.

But not anymore. The place was nearly empty on a Monday night except for the kids behind me watching a movie on the ipad at full blast. Service was slow to even bring a glass of water. Top shelf margarita was good. The tamale and taco's were kind of bland, no character at all. There are a lot of finer... More

I have been to a lot of Mexican Restaurants, and this one was an ok find on the El Camino in Mountain View. Standard fare, typically decorated Mexican, reasonably priced, but service was very slow concidering that the restaurant only had a few tables being waited on. Most of the limited staff was busy doing I don't know what, while... More

I saw an ad in Sunday's paper for 2 meals for $15 at Chevy's, so off we went. After driving 4.7 miles and going through 17 street lights, we arrived at Chevy's in Mountain View off of Rengstorff. The restaurant overlooks El Camino Real, the main drag in Silicon Valley, stretching 50 miles from San Bruno to east San Jose.... More

Pretty standard Mexican. We wish the quality is given over quantity though. Our server was also way too busy being bartender by herself.
