I grew up in N California and loved Chevy's - was so excited to show my new Husband one of my fav's. EPIC FAIL! The Chevy's in Santa Rosa is the worst I've ever visited! Horrific staff, food, and service... ya right... good luck with that. DON'T DO IT!!

We've been to other Chevys Fresh Mex restaurants, but have noticed that some locations have closed (Carmel, Scottsdale). We were excited to discover their location in Santa Rosa, across the street from the visitor's center, near the train depot. We've always been pleased with the menu, but are more on a budget these days, so we didn't opt for alcohol... More

This is my second visit here. The first visit was not totally enjoyable due to some communication problems with the wait staff. However, no such difficulties this time. Wait staff were helpful and friendly. Food was pretty much as expected and despite a couple of very large groups the wait for table, service and food was not long.

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
