I ordered Fajitas, and it did not come sizzling or even hot, chicken was practically cold. They only had one type of salsa. Husband ordered nachos, which came soggy. This was a waste of time and money. Waiting staff or manager did not come by our table even once to check upon us.

The family was starving and our local Mexican restaurant Celias was closed for 4th of July.... So we decided on Chevy's. Not a great decision. The place was half empty yet we were told that it would be a 20 minute wait.. So we stuck it out. The place looks beat up dirty & run down. The bathrooms are filthy... More

I usually don't review chain restaurants of any kind, but I really like Chevy's I have been to Chevy's twice now on two separate trips to California, and both times have been great. The food is really good and it's reasonably priced. The service here was lacking a bit, but the food was great. Would come again.

Waiter was rude, surly. Never a smile. 12 of us and made a reservation. Table was so small and cramped that we had to ask them to put an extension on it. Went downhill from there. Waiter finally came over and took our drink orders, took about another 20 mins to bring it to us. Another 20 mins or so... More

A one star rating is too generous for this Chevy's. Yesterday, my family of 12 came here to celebrate a birthday. We had a reservation for 6:30 and arrived on time. We were seated in about 10 minutes at a table set up for eight. We had to ask a manager to add another table to accommodate us. Little did... More

Looked for a place to eat before catching the red eye home. This restaurant was a little off of 101 but worth the search. Great food and the staff were soooo nice!

So you say your self where can i get a nice Margarita, friendly atmosphere, good food, and it won't hurt your pocket. Chevy's Fresh Mex is the place. I'm not some guy who's been hired to promote or talk about this restaurant. I really love coming here. Yeah you going to hear it's not even an original Mexican Food..ah duh!... More

We were passing by and stopped for lunch, with no prior knowledge of Chevys (it's a chain). Glad we did. Nelson (our server) was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. GREAT atmosphere. Domestic beer choices are VERY limited.

The restaurant itself smells dank and musty as if there were some long ago flood they never fully recovered from. The men's room is nasty and falling apart and poorly maintained and it's been that way multiple times. This location needs a major renovation and I won't go back until they do.
