I've probably been here two dozen times. My recollection is it used to be better, but maybe I'm getting older and crankier. The seafood (shrimp and crab) enchiladas used to be my favorite, but they kind of went downhill. Very good fajitas and nachos. Good margaritas (but most places have good margaritas). Service is really uneven - at times it's... More

First thing I noticed was the spacious layout of tables. Not crowded all together. Food was what I expect from Chevys anywhere. Good, quick, friendly service. Just as expected from this chain.

Salsa was ok but the rest of the food is horrible. The lobster and crab quesadillas were awful as well as the chicken flautas and nachos. My son liked the buffalo wings but this is a mexican restaurant.

I ate there twice and the food and staff were excellent. They have a bar as well as a restaurant and the staff are very friendly in both. They have outside seating as well. The food came out quickly and was prepared with very fresh ingredients. The salsa was very good with just enough "bite" to make it enjoyable.

We had the best meal after spending the day riding bikes. The veggie fajita's were awesome! The salsa was fresh and replenished often by our server. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive.

Food is good and predictable. Service the day we went and sat outdoors was really good. Service was timely. Water glasses refilled. Check brought on time without asking. Bill not a shocker. +.

We stayed at the Hyatt-Vineyard just across the street, so we walked over to try it. My husband had carnitas taco and I ordered their Mexican chopped salad. There was a dressing I hadn't ever tried;apple chipotle dressing. It was SO good. We went back a couple of days later and I ate that same salad. My husband said both... More

Basically a chain Mexican food restaurant, it was good for what it is. Service was quick, and the food reasonably good. Not a place I would want to take a date for example, but for quickly served reasonably tasty food, not a bad choice. The one caveat is I was there only once. Whether the quick service I received is... More

While this is a chain, it wasn't that bad. Large, spacious, very clean and great service. The margaritas and food were yummy. Portions were decent. Chips and salsa were served before the meal. It is family friendly. Hopping bar and plenty of parties. My kids liked watching the lady make the tortillas with the machine to pass the time. For... More
