“Good Mexican in Mountain View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Good Mexican Restaurant in Mountain view. I have eaten here a few times and tried several different dishes. All are consistently tasty. The restaurant (and restrooms) were clean. The atmosphere was good. he staff was helpful and courteous. My only complaint, if it is really that, is that I thought the music was slightly loud.

“Fun for the Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Celebrated granddaughter's 6th birthday in this fun restaurant with good food, reasonably priced. The fabulous table-made guacamole was an experience of pure joy--AND they left the salt out when requested, and placed a little ramekin of salt on the table for those who do like it.
The special desert celebration for the birthday girl was special--her choice of dessert presented to her along with a sombrero (to keep) and 6 or so singing waiters belting out the Happy Birthday song. There were several birthdays that night so the restaurant, though hopping, never appeared crowded.
One negative--the service was VERY slow.

“Great Mexican Food In Mountain View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My husband and I went to the Happy Hour at Chevy's. The House Margarita was a good size. Chevy's doesn't skimp on anything! We ordered Nachos Grande, Table side Guacamole and Mesquite Grilled Tacos with Chicken. The Nachos Grande was excellent, plenty of food here! Guacamole was great and the Grilled Tacos with the coitja cheese was really really good. Like I said you get plenty of food for the money. The appetizers are good portion and filling so if you just want a quick bite, head to the Happy Hour.

“love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

My husband and I enjoy going to this Chevy's, one of the last remaining local establishments by this franchise. The service is good at the bar where we usually sit to have our meal, the ambience is welcoming, and the food is usually delicious. There is plenty of parking
