“Again chevy's ofallon disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

We live in ofallon mo approx 5 miles from Chevy's. Periodically we give in to try just one more time aug 30th about 7:40
Our waitress was very good and had too many tables ordered a piña colada received a mix of a margarita and piña colada. Our neighboring table sent back 2 drinks the sAme time to the bartender
It was explained the bartender was new
Instead of sorry.
The salsa at the Ofallon site continues to pale with the St peter's store. This evening was no different. The salsa was watery and bland
My daughter specifically ordered her tacos less tomatoes and explained her allergy. When received, the tomatoes were served anyway A waiter finally noticed us, acknowledged the mistake and personally told us that he would remake. My tomale and chili rellano dough was not cooked well and was soggy. After another 10 minutes waiting for my daughter's remake her dish arrived. It was evident that the tomatoes had been scraped off leaving a few tomato pieces and distinct tomato juices
Again had to flag a waiter down since our waitress was overworked Sent dish back again. The 2nd time her dish was Ok. I had picked through my dish and chose not to cOmplain. We recd our check with no discount nor apology. Upon leaving with evident management at the reservation desk not one opened the doors They did say thank you while they watched us open the doors to leave
So either LaChata or the St Peter location. So much to teach customer service at too many local restaurants

“Bland Food, Unsanitary Work Habits”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

I can't say the food was terrible, but it was certainly very plain and without much excitement for the taste buds. I certainly expected better from a well known restaurant such as Chevy's. The service was about equally exciting. Not terrible, but certainly not excellent. My server was focused on her smart phone for a good five minutes while I waited to place my order. The food arrived very fast, but that was the last I saw of her until time to leave. I didn't really need anything, but if I would have, I would have been out of luck. The worst thing was the unsanitary work habits I saw. I watched the bartender making drinks and when she put the ice in the glasses it was mounded up on top. The waitress waiting for the drinks smoothed it out with her hands and touched the business end of the straw with her fingers. When the bartender made two pitchers of Margaritas, one of them had some object in the pitcher. It looked like a black plastic lid or something. She plunged her bare hand right into the pitcher, causing the liquid to overflow, and fished it out and threw it in the trash. The two pitchers then went to the customer. This was very disgusting to me. I would not go back there again just because of that hand in the pitcher. If they will do this, they will do anything. Their sanitation standards are obviously very low. They will get no more of my business.

“Always the best fajitas around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

I have been to this location, and all of the others in STL (and a good majority in the Bay area in CA), and this location always knocks it out of the ball park! The fajitas are always some of the leanest and tastiest you will find anywhere, and the service is always great. I would attribute that to a great manager with the hiring of good help. The margaritas are always a good choice for the adults, with a nice seasonal variety. The ribs are very unique as well, and have a jalapeno jelly sauce to give them a very distinct and addictive flavor. A+++ for the a great restaurant!

“My favorite salsa and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Chevy's provides pretty good chain type tex-mex style offerings. Favorites there include the flautas ( spiced chicken rolled in flour tortillas and deep fried - served with jalepeno jelly ) and the mixed grill fajitas ( the pork carnitas are great ) . Service sometimes spotty ( slow chips to table, beer forgotten, etc. ), but a good place to take a larger group to without a long wait.

“Great food, great service, quality atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

From chips and salsa to guacamole made right in front of you, this place is great. Outdoor seating, very fast service, phenomenal food, fairly priced, it's go it all. There isn't anything about this place that I wouldn't recommend.
