    $1 kid Wednesday meals, so decided to give it a try. Did a reservation for 7pm. Checked in 7:03pm. Hostess said we’ll get a text. 15 mins later and after 2nd party sat before us, wife had to go up and advise we still don’t have a text. 5 mins later we were finally seated. No apologies or explanation. Waitress was extremely personable and friendly! Took our order and brought out kids food first (awesome)!! My meal was wrong, ate it anyways. Barbacoa taco was dry with only a very small amount of pico given. Other items were decent, nothing to rave about. Didn’t get a refill on water until about 3/4 way done with my meal. Wife enjoyed her meal and said it was delicious. Kids were happy, so I’m happy that the family was satisfied! Took about 10 minutes to get our check, which was wrong. I was in the service industry for a few years and it just seems like the customer service and going beyond has gone out the window. Not even a nice smiling greeting when arriving or leaving. Probably the current times we’re in and shortage of staff, but will only come back to this place to have apps/drinks on outside patio to enjoy the scenery.

    The restaurant was understaffed on Father’s Day. The host kept apologizing that there were only two waitstaff for the entire restaurant. Understandably, the service suffered. Our food got cold while we waited for our silverware was just one of our several complaints. Management needs to either staff up or reduce the number of patrons based on how many are staffed.

    Great location and I loved the view of the river from our patio table. The service was good but my expensive steak fajitas arrived late and was warm not hot. I also expected more steak, grilled onions and bell peppers but the plate was sparse. Overall I enjoyed my visit because of the location. I usually am very pleased with the food from Chevy's but today not so much.

    It was an awful experience for our now 4th time trying to give this place a try. We won’t be coming back. The server got all of our food wrong, forgot one of our parties food and then brought us another tables check, INSIDE OF A MENU and not a check presenter. What the heck? He also did an absolute terrible job with his table side guacamole. Poor food, poor service, poor ambience. It was all over an awful experience. Do not waste your money. The manager was very well aware of how poor the service was and did ABSOLUTELY nothing.

    Even though we had reservations, our wait time was unacceptable. Took forever to get our drinks, also took even longer to get our food order then when our food came it was cold. The waiter's knowledge was horrible. I used to eat at Chevys a lot, but I will spend my hard earn money elsewhere. I will be post on social media about what a very expensive and worthless service we had at your restaurant.

    We booked originally for 6 people but later had to add two more. Tried calling 3 different times to change reservations and no one answered so once we all got there I told them we had two more and they told us they’d have to “fix the table” had to wait 40mins just for them to move one table.

    2/3 of our meals weren’t how we ordered them. Asked for no sour cream on one and no tortilla strips on the other. Had to take it off ourselves. No offer to take them back. Forgot our appetizer order and had to tell them a second time. Did not know what on the menu was gluten free. Didn’t come back for refills. Once we asked, it took them at least 10 minutes to come back with our drink. Food was marginal at best. We won’t be back. Disappointed.

    They changed the cantina area, removed all the booths and just left bar top seating which is not accommodating for people that any kind of meat on there bones. One of the managers was rude and looked very annoyed when you asked him any questions. I have been there before and always enjoyed my dining experience but this time it was horrible and I don’t plan to ever dine there again. They don’t have many options raised the prices for poor service,

    Checked in early was told they texted and called me which was a lie. Person in front of me said the same thing. After I went up to check in was told I had to wait they didn’t see my name and took other people in before us. This was our Anniversary dinner that got ruined. We got there at 7:10 our check in was 7:45 still had to wait

    like most places they were short of staff but our server was keeping us entertained when we did see her and she did the best she could considering how many tables she was working so under the circumstances it was better than expected these days. Food was good, outside view of river was good and nothing went wrong so certainly would go back there again.

    I ordered the chicken fajitas. My beans and rice were luke-warm and my chicken was so dry I just kept chewing and chewing, only ate a couple of pieces before deciding it was just simply too dry to enjoy. My boyfriend ordered the fish tacos. The fish was overcooked and rubbery and had no flavor (and the portions of fish were very small) I ordered two drinks, the first, a jalapeno cucumber margarita (delicious btw) came out within 5 minutes, before my meal. I finished my first drink before we ordered, so I ordered another, the smokey pineapple mezcal, which didn't come out until AFTER we had completely finished our meals (about 40 minutes). Our server was very friendly and checked in frequently. I could tell she (and the other staff) we're over worked. It seemed like our server had too many tables to really keep track of. I asked for a new fork because mine was dirty, but it took so long to get a new one from the server that I just got up and went to the bar to ask for silverware instead. Overall I was extremely disappointed (although not necessarily surprised since everyone, including restaurants and restaurant staff we're affected by COVID) The food that I paid $20 dollars for was lukewarm and dry as a bone. The only positives I have were that the drinks were delicious and our waitress was friendly.

    The reservation system needs some work. We made reservations for party of 8, as we expected Cinco De Mayo to be crowded. We had to wait approximately an HOUR before being seated and even then were separated at 2 tables for 4. Otherwise, lovely setting and nice food and drinks. Had an excellent server, unfortunately, I can't remember his name. Will try again on not so busy a night.

    If I could give it negative stars, I would have. Requested outside table, and was denied when being seated with a ridiculous reason about those tables being reserved (not sure how that is different from the reservation I had, but, ok). Ended up being seated in the very back of the restaurant in a corner with extremely loud music blaring coupled with all the tables around us having to shout to talk to each other over the music. Couldn't even have a conversation with my boyfriend across the table. Our server did her best, but the food was terrible, and drinks didn't show up until after our dinner arrived. Food was more of a joke than anything, I got fajitas and the condiments for them looked like the little bit that might have been leftover from a table that had been cleared prior. Literally a teaspoon of sour cream, no guac anywhere, and maybe a teaspoon (if that) of pico. The amount of actual fajita main ingredients were just as comical, I should have taken a picture - more like a child's plate that was already overpriced. My boyfriend got chicken flautas which were nothing more than a rolled up fried tortialla with cheese in it. The worst part of this experience was the bill, talk about a ripoff! Paid almost $100 for not only the worst meal and service, but the least amount of food we could have possibly been served. Best part is when we left and saw the same EMPTY outside tables we were denied upon being seated...maybe those lucky people that were going to be obliged with their 'outdoor' seating request were wise enough to grab In & Out instead.

    Our server Antonio was amazing. He was very attentive and helped out with the menu. I had accidentally left my credit card as I was leaving and he ran into the parking lot to get it to me. We tried the Flamed Mixed Grill Fajitas. It was a big portion and it was enough for the both of us. We also tried the jalapeño margarita which was pretty good and added a kick. The fries ice cream dessert was also a new and cool experience. We loved the cinnamon flavored chip like things at the bottom. Overall a great experience.
