Reviewed April 20, 2013

Sounds good. Looks good. Smells good. Taste? Blah. Nothing special Tastes like canned or frozen. I have not been in years because the last time was so bad. Since the Mex food here is so poor, I thought I'd be safe with a Cesar Salad. Wrong. The dressing tasted like they took cheap bottled dressing and added mayonnaise to it. Bleck! Haven't been back since. Save your money and go to Super Taqueria.

“Worst service I've ever had...but the food was great!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Wow... I've been to several different Chevys because its a favorite of mine. This one is different. They were very busy but there was no place to wait at all.
The good as usual was awesome. No surprise there. But what was surprising was the terribly poor service. It took us. 25 mins to order, we were out of chips for over 15 mins. I finished my beer and waited for our server to come by, but after 10 mins I decided to turn my beer bottle upside down in a silent protest. Fifteen mins later I was allowed to order another beer. I was talking the place up to my friends and was totally embarrassed.

“It fills you up!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was a last minute choice. We were in the mood for Mexican food and we saw this from Hwy 101 and decided to give it a chance. We were there round 2:30PM, so the lunch crowd had already left. The service was fast and efficient. The portions were large enough that we took a "to go" box home. Staff was cordial. There was plenty of parking and it was easy access to the freeway. Also,the bathroom was clean. We were still able to order from the lunch menu as it wasn't 3PM yet. It's as authentic as you can get considering it is a chain restaurant.

“Good meal at a reliable chain”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Chevy's is always good no matter where we visit. This was our second visit to this location and as always good food. The tortilla soup was exceptional and the corn tomatillo is a favorite. The service was a bit slow but nothing to get angry about. Overall it's a trustworthy chain.
