“Great food, reasonable prices!”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

We had a fantastic meal at the Chevy's in Vacaville. Normally we don't like chain restaurants but I wanted Mexican and this place was easy to get to off of I-80. The service was amazing. We were there close to closing and still had the best service and our food was fantastic. We had the steak and shrimp fajitas and they were cooked to perfection. Chevy's has the best chips and salsa! Great food and great service and our bill wasn't big either.

“Food was great; booth upholstery torn with stuffing falling out...”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

The food was great, as always and service was excellent this visit. We eat here about twice a month and are always seated at tables, enjoy consistently good food, and adequate service. This time, we were seated in a booth across from the tortilla maker. Not so good... the booth's upholstery was very worn and torn with stuffing falling out. But since it was Valentine's Day dinner, I didn't make a fuss and just sat on the torn seating.

I will be calling the manager this week to complain about the booth. I'm sure that it isn't the only one in the restaurant that is in disrepair.

“Good food, good service, but not clean!”
Reviewed August 18, 2010

Vacaville Chevy's needs to clean and maintance their facility. The bathrooms were not clean. The walls, floor, doors, etc. in the bathroom were dirty. One of the toilet piping was held together with duck tape. When the waiters wipe down the table they need to also wipe down the seats and wall areas around the seating.

We enjoy the food and the service but after seeing how they clean I would hate to see the kittchen.

“Best Chevy's Ever!”
Reviewed July 2, 2010

I LOVE their chips, so I have visited Chevy's in every state I find them. The Vacaville, California Chevy's is the best one I have ever been to; the staff was amazing. Our server was working as a server and the bartender. He still managed to keep our waters, sodas, and milk filled before we even asked; he also kept replacing the empty chips' baskets. The food was perfect; we could not have asked for a better experience!
