    We attended the 49ers meet and greet with Fred Warner! Chevys management and servers did a fantastic job in running the event! The fajitas were great and everything tasted great.

    We attended a Meet & Greet with San Francisco 49er Fred Warner for his charity No Kid Hungry. We were greeted by the owner as soon as we walked in. He is so nice and always gracious every time we’ve seen him. The waitstaff was excellent and the food that was provided was very good. We had an excellent time and had photos with Fred taken too. Only 75 people could attend so I hope the charity made some good money. Thank you to Chevy’s for having us.

    Food was tasty but because the restaurant was full the speed of service was very slow even even when ordered desserts and drinks. Plates served were ok but not the same quality as prior visit. I would return probably when is not as busy.

    This chevys is very small and in a small shopping center on busy street. (I was used to a different location that was much larger and had a nice view). Went to meet a friend and chat, music/people loud in small quarters. Food was fine, waitress was nice.

    Great classic (American) Mexican food. We loved the frozen margaritas which you can't get everywhere these days. The table side Fajita salad is delicious. Enchiladas were good. We loved the smoky salsa they serve with the chips. We had a fun, great meal.

    My son order fajitas and the steak was over cooked (he said it was like chewing leather). The chicken was also very dry. The guacamole would have been better if it didn't have so much lime in it.

    Food is just ok. I ordered flautas and they came "dry", without sour cream, salsa not guacamole. Our waiter was new and he screwed up our orders, took forever to get our "bottomless" mimosas we ordered and the check had to be edited 3 different times.

    Had a great time celebrating a friend’s belated birthday with 7 other friends. The food was good. Our waiter Miguel took care of us and although we were a party of 9, he did a great job and made sure we were served with what we actually ordered, which is not oftentimes the case with a bigger group!! The place was quite busy but Miguel and Paula took care of us. I recommend Chevy's, even if you're a large group. We got a bit noisy with our stories and laughter but the staff were cool with us. One other recommendation: Make a reservation, which I did in Open Table, and our table was ready. We didn't have to wait like some other restaurants.

    Wasn’t bad. Went here for brunch, mimosas were more oj than alcohol (prosseco/champagne). Food was ok. Wasn’t the best steak breakfast, a bit on the dry side but the churro pancakes which were so good! Overall would brunch here again but would order something different this time.

    Chevy's is hit and miss. Sometimes the service is slow or disorganized. Last Friday the service was great, the restaurant was lively and fun, and the food was yummy! I do not like their chairs (since the remodel they got metal chairs). VERY noisy when moved, and the metal scraping echoes through the restaurant, and not to mention they are uncomfortable.

    The service was good. As far as food was concerned. Well it was a shame they did not have carnitas available. Had to substitute other meats instead. Beer was not cold. No salt or other condiments on the table. The server did not pick up menus from table after ordering making it cluttered. It was an ok experience but left a lot to be desired from other Chevy restaurant I’ve eaten in the past.

    Paola was a wonderful host to accommodate the SSF Women's Club group for Brunch. We sat comfortably in a private room. Karen, our server was EXCELLENT and I can't say enough about her friendliness and customer service. She helped us individually with menu interpretations and assisted us to make reasonable food choices. There was 12 ladies from all areas in SSF and left happy and full of delicious food. Thank you Paola and Karen for a wonderful group brunch for out group! We'll see you again!! Angi R

    Food was ok, but my mother's day entrée seemed more like an appetizer. Also we did not receive the fruit that was supposedly the 2nd course. that Mimosa was so so. I didn't realize that dogs are not allowed inside the restaurant, which seems a bit unsanitary.

    Misleading advertising. There was no live music; had to order from the full menu as the the server explained that the offer was only good for the cantina and patio and at 3:30 ( my reservation) there was a long waiting list and that my reservation applied to the restaurant part only. Very disappointing and the food was cold and less than adequate. The margaritas were ok but was charged full price.

    The food did not meet our expectations, as the fish taco tasted stale and the fajitas were dry. The fish had a bad fish smell like it was a day old. Additionally, the wait time for the food was long, taking 40 minutes to arrive. While we were willing to give the restaurant another try, this experience did not live up to our expectations.

    Chevy’s is now a collection of clanging metal chairs and average restaurant fare. The former fiesta vibe has been replaced by indifferent servers and a grease that seems to coat every surface. The bathroom was beyond unsanitary and lacked proper paper products. Perhaps this is an unfortunate byproduct of the pandemic.

    Amazing server #43 Angel P. He did everything...brought us menus, silverware, salsa & chips, water, drinks, took our orders, brought us refills of S & C, brought out our food piping hot & then went on to make us fresh flour tortillas. Although manager helped out with bringing out hot food I thought she or hostess could have helped more. Delicious food & the best C& S.

    We had a large group reservation of 17 which is naturally much more difficult for the staff to attend to. Especially when the group participants arrive at different times and its a busy Friday night! Our server Sandra and the young man helping our table out worked efficiently and swiftly! They were very good with paying attention to detail and making sure our needs were met. The food was served very quickly and tasted great. Everything was perfect. Thank you Chevys for making another family celebration successful and stress free!

    My high rating is ONLY because of mainly Daniel. Paula the new manager is nice. So is the front/intake staff. It is concerning the management keep changing though.. hopefully it’s for the best and she stays long term. Honestly, if not for Danny we would not go. We’ve been coming here for over 10 years. The waiter we had this day we’ve had in Jan. He’s new and I held my reservations but this is the second time and he was rude/nonchalant/unpleasant. He mixed up our meals with another table and I observed while he was just matter factly with us he was very nice and smiling with his other tables. I know English isn’t his first language and may be poor but, I speak Spanish and even when communicating in Spanish he is the same. This time we went for brunch (my birthday) and I was excited to try the food but the crab/shrimp omelette was very small- not on brand with its portion size of other food. Also there was no shrimp or crab like, they barely had any in there they minced it and chipped it so small it barely existed. The churro pancakes were very disappointing. They were gummy and bland. I can’t believe they couldn’t get pancakes right. The Mimosas were a joke until the 3rd round. Prior to it was just filled with juice AND they don’t let you flavor the mimosa which is weird! Chevys is known for its many flavors of margaritas it should not have been a big deal to flavor mimosas. It was lazy and unpleasant. Next time I will order the omelette as nothing else seems worth ordering on the menu, the other items lacked legit so this is the best bet. If they learn to make mimosas properly I wouldn’t care about anything else. Is be sold on that alone. Oh the Margaritas are always my fav and happy hour food taste good which is why brunch food fail is so odd and sad. I really enjoy coming here despite the cons. Please name the food better I want to return.

    Came in to take advantage of the 20% off that Chevys had on line. We had great service with our server Daniel in the bar area..
