I've never been a huge Chevy's fan, I end up here because some of my friends enjoy it. The margaritas are pretty good, the food is typical mexican chain food, it all tastes the same to me. Fresh Mex, really reaching here.

“It's a 50/50 deal”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We go here about once every other month. Sometimes service is GREAT and food is good and sometimes service is horrible and food is OK or tasteless.

I've had to speak to more managers at this place than anywhere I've ever eaten. It's not one of the best Chevy's but it's better than a taco truck... or is it?

“Kinda disappointing.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I usually like Chevy's restaurants, but my last trip was rather a let down. The food was okay, fajitas were hot, but I only got two tortillas. I asked for more and the waiter didn't bring them out until he brought the to-go boxes when we were leaving. We went for my birthday, even used my birthday "free meal" voucher from the Chevy's online club. The waiter totally forgot about getting me the free birthday dessert, we had to remind him several times about taking the meal price off the tab for the free meal voucher, and my husband had to ask several times for them to come by and do the birthday song and bring out the hat. My kid loves hats, and we did the Chevy's birthday thing just so I could get a hat to let her have. Then, the waiter never brought my kid's icecream she was supposed to get with her kid's meal, either. After we had our leftovers boxed up, we sat at the table for 15 minutes waiting for the waiter to bring our bill. Then it was wrong and it took another 15 minutes to get it back corrected. We then waited another 15-20 minutes to get hubby's credit card back. Not very much fun to sit around, after you're done eating, with a 3 year old who is done eating, and getting bored sitting at a table.

Not what I expect from Chevy's, and I have eaten at Chevy's locations in numerous other towns. Don't know if this one is just Vallejo-fied, or it was a bad night, but I was pretty disappointed in the experience, which kinda sucks when it was my birthday celebration.

“First time at a Chevys”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We seemed to have better experience than some reviews here - service was good, seated quickly (though they seem to struggle to seat groups bigger than 4) and food was very good compared to plenty of Mexican we had during vacation in southern California.
All seemed nice and fresh, and was convenient stop after day at Discovery Kingdom, though area it was in was kind of strange.

“Usually really good”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

This visit to Chevy's was OK. Service, drinks and chips were good but the food was OK and the place needed a good scrub down.
