“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I have had good food at the Chevy's near my home so decided to try it while visiting in Modesto. Overall, my dining experience was good. However, I was unaware that on Tuesdays kids eat free, so the restaurant was full. I had no problem getting a table, but I was surrounded by some large families with children who were either running around, screaming, or both. This was not an ideal situation for a woman dining alone and looking for a relaxed evening. However, by the time I was halfway through my meal, the two large families had left and those remaining had well-behaved, quiet children. The complimentary chips are light and crisp and the salsa very flavorful. I had the Shrimp Marg-tail and the Farmer's Enchiladas. Both were excellent. My server, Tina, was one of the best I've had in a long time. I would go back, but probably not on a Tuesday.

“Can anything beat this salsa?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We buy their salsa constantly. We also eat there and order the fajitas brought to the table on a steaming metal plate. Yum

“Good food, good service and helpful waiter.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We went to Chevy's tonight and had a nice relaxing dinner. We were given a choice of eating in the bar or in the dining room or outside. We chose the dining room. I can not handle very spicy food and the waiter was kind enough to get me a sample of the sauce that the Kick'n Chicken taco had. I was able to order the entree that I wanted, because of his help. Our waiter was very helpful, quick and met our needs before we had a chance to ask. It was a lovely dinner and very good food. We will be returning.

“Good Food Okay Service...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

The food, as always, was great and full of flavor. However, at the end of my meal I presented a coupon via Foursquare from my phone and the manager had no idea how to redeem it even though there were instructions on the screen that specifically said "employee to redeem..." And he refused to do so.
