The menu has shrunk, but still has my favorites. Sometimes the service is slow, but often fast, so depends night?
The thin fresh chips with great salsa are to die for.
Steak and shrimp fajitas are great and house beans are wonderful.

It pains me to write this review. Chevys has been my favorite. The menu has changed (Prices are higher). The food has changed. Our server was friendly, but non-attentive. Gone are the shrimp and crab quesadillas (we were told they only have the shrimp and crab enchiladas). We ordered the combos. We got our food and the tamales looked different. Gone are the flaky corn dough tamales with the tasty chili sauce. It is now a tough dough with enchilada sauce. Thirty seconds after getting our food the server asked about it and I mentioned the tamale and was assured this was the way they are now. We didn't see our server again until we got our check. No offers of drink refills - nothing. It would have been good to have the opportunity to tell her the Flautas were burnt. After waiting and waiting, I finally flagged down another server to get a drink refill. She brought my drink to the table and plopped it down without stopping or saying a word. The chille relleno was good and I would have enjoyed it if the overall experience hadn't been so frustrating. At least I didn't have chicken fajitas dumped on me and the floor like the lady in the next table.

Arrived and parked undercover, nice since it was raining. seated right away. Got the trainee waiter with the trainer combo. Service was good but he's still learning. Orders were correct all the way. Ordered the Surf & Turf Combo & my wife ordered Farmer's Market Enchilada. Both were deliciosa!

went to Chevy's with a friend for happy hour. Drinks not listed on the happy hour menu were fairly expensive ($11 for a 'skinny' margarita); service (we sat in the bar) was slow. Food was pretty good though, had chicken taquitos.

i'll return in the future and give this place another try, this time sticking to the happy hour menu!

This location is close to the hotels and freeway. Stopped for dinner on Wednesday night and sat in the bar area. Excellent waiter that gave prompt service, good information on the menu items and positive friendly attitude. We haven't eaten in a Chevy's for several years because they closed the one in Tacoma and we really miss it. I had the Chile Relleno and a chicken enchilada and my husband had the chicken fajitas both were very good. Love their chips and salsa.....
