The chips and salsa are always good. Menu seems to stay the same. I had a vodka tonic that was upscale. Use grey goose vodka.

Discounted prices during happy hour and the chips and salsa are always complimentary. They also have appetizers for less during happy hour. Good service and great margaritas.

This Chevy's has very inconsistent quality. A few days ago, we ordered take out. I had the carnitas tostada and my spouse had the carnitas burrito. The carnitas was over salted to the point that it was like a salt lick. It was completely inedible. On other occasions we have had problems with rellenos not being cooked enough (raw chili,... More

I've dined at various Chevys restaurants for many years now. They serve the standard chips & salsa...however,the chips they serve are thin and crispy. This is the only restaurant I've ever visited that serves this style tortilla chip. Personally, I think the are the best! Our table of 7 went though several baskets of them before eating our meal...yeah, that... More

Loved this restaurant when we lived in California and recently made a trip back to the area. Stopped in for lunch one day and dinner the next. Food was just as good as I remembered it to be. Love the chips and salsa and fresh tortillas. The manager came over and was very friendly and helpful. Definitely need this chain... More

The freshly made chips and salsa are delicious, but don't eat too many or you will spoil your appetite for the other items on the menu. The atmosphere is low key, can be a bit noisy, but in general, a great place for informal dining. The staff is wonderful--outgoing, cordial, and happy to help you decide which meal you might...

We had dinner here with friends to share recent travel stories and get caught up on each other's lives . . . completely wrong restaurant choice for that purpose. It's probably a good restaurant for loud groups, families with young children and parties with loud and frequent "Happy Birthday" singing and clapping. The food (cheese enchiladas) and the service was... More

I had shrimp fajitas about a year ago here-nice big, perfectly cooked shrimp. So I thought I'd enjoy them again.Today I was presented with a large platter-not even 1/5 full- of about 8 of the puniest shrimp ever. In truth-they did taste good. But I had to ask for the butter sauce and the tortillas. My water glass wasn't refilled... More
