“Pleasant Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

I live in Florida but grew up in the SF Bay Area. Never ever been to a Chevy's. For some reason never got around to it. I stopped with a friend for dinner. He had recently transplanted from the East Coast and also never been to a Chevy's. We started off with cocktails. My friend had a bottled beer and I had one of their top-shelf margaritas on the rocks. Very good, mixed perfectly with the right mix of sweet and sour, tequila and grand mariner float! Having never been there before we asked our server Michelle what was popular, etc. My friend ordered the chili relleno which came with rice and beans and I ordered the seafood enchiladas. My friend enjoyed his meal talking about the great flavor combinations. My order was very good for a corporate chain, The seafood enchiladas had a combination of seafood wrapped in a tortilla topped with a cheese sauce which was excellent and of course, the rice and beans. We were offered the desserts which we declined. Will have to save that for another time. Our server Michelle was very patient pleasant and attentive. Although we were in a remote area away from her section she always was constantly checking on us to make sure we had a pleasurable dining experience. I have no complaints. As I said in my title of this review this was pleasant dining experience.

“muy bueno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Visited restaurant to use my birthday coupon for an entree and was surprised to find out Tuesdays offer free meals for children. The food was very good especially the piping hot tortillas and fajitas. The sangria was too diluted by the ice. Overall, it was a satisfying meal.

“Great food, fun atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We love going to Chevy's. The foods are fresh and tasty, and it always feels like we've arrived at a party whenever we come. Fresh chips and salsa, great drinks, and the sizzling fajita platters are all fantastic.

“Excellent - don't miss the margaritas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Had the vegetarian enchiladas, and they were awesome! Served with roasted veges and guacamole and beans & rice. We had a cantaloupe margarita, and while it sounds odd, it was very good. I've been here twice over the years and enjoyed it both times!
