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

First time visit and traveling through town, we choose Chevy's Fresh Mex over several other restaurants in the immediate area and sat at the bar because we were starving after a day of sightseeing and a 15 minute wait for a table was too much time. The bartender Terek was well knowledgeable of the menu items and we were served... 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

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.
