Just a good place to go on occasion. Beans & Rice are great, Fresh Chile Poblano used in Relleno, Chips on the lighter side of thickness, table salsa nice, smoky w/o using chipotle chiles

Great food and great service but we were surrounded by a large table of very obnoxious children running around screaming nonstop with nothing being done about it

Everything was great! Just couldn't believe when I got the bill that the small watermelon margarita I got was $12.50! Others in my group got larger pomegranate margaritas for like $8... That's the last time I older my drink from the special cards at the table, LOL! But food was good, and service was good, so we left full and happy.

Place didn't look very clean. Made you feel uncomfortable. Waiter was nice enough and hostess was nice. You didn't get everything that you were suppose to get on your plate.

The kitchen was overwhelmed by DoorDash orders so they stopped seating people even if you had a reservation. Some of the wait staff were rude about it. We were told “if you don’t like it, talk to the Manager” one of our favorite places so leery of going back.

4 stars all around . service needs improvement, music was too loud, and i think even if you order something a la carte, should come with some garnish.

I had not been to a Chevy's in many years, used to go frequently back in the day. I was pleasantly surprised that the salsa for the table was remarkably tasty, and all our other food was pretty good, too. Serving sizes were large and prices were very fair. The Cadillac margarita still works just fine. So we weren't wrong to go to Chevy's back in the day! Only slip was consommé with garbanzo beans promised for my barbacoa tacos didn't come at first, then came when asked for minus garbanzo beans. Oh well.

Made a reservation for dinner on Cinco de Mayo...traffic getting into Santa Rosa was really difficult due to a truck parade backing up traffic west of 101. We got to the restaurant on time...went to the front desk...game my name...host said they'd seat us in five minutes. He came over in two minutes and said our table was waiting. It was party nite with a loud and happy crowd...the food, as always, was great...and because of the holiday, we all got big Chevy's Sombreros to wear home. It was a delicious and fun festive evening...will be back...very soon.

The chevys in our area closed years ago. It was great to have the same chips and salsa. Plus the corn maze every meal comes with took us back. Our server Luis was very quick and attentive. The food definitely took us back to when we went to chevys all the time.

Slow help act like they don't want to work. Expensive food for what you get. Paper straws yuck gross will leave residue in cups,dirty especially with the Corona Virus!!! Took down all the cool decorations now all you see is wires and stuff bad choice on who part to redecorate. Go back to the old Chevys.

Nice place for couple dining out or small family. Atmosphere is a combination of sports bar and fine mexican food, leaving you with a friendly and tasty memory.

Food was fresh and as tasty as ever, combined with a polite and efficient staff. The reason for only 3 stars is due to the waitress we had who was a bit distracted during our time, resulting in long waits between her appearances.

It has been a long time since we have ate at Chevy's. Disappointed that you did not have the chimichanga anymore but the shrimp & crab enchilada was very good. Not as spicy as I thought it would be. My husband also enjoyed is taco meal that he had. The best was the strawberry margaritas! Will definitely return as we did not know you were reserving outside dining. Also have passed the word to our friends as well who were also surprised that you were serving more than takeout.

Normally, the service and food at Chevy’s are just ok (sometimes terrible). But on this particular occasion, I was very happy with my overall experience. Our waitress was super nice, prompt and attentive. I was really impressed with their outdoor covid dining setup (it was a little chilly, but they had heaters going, so it seemed reasonable). The food was decent; I always love their flautas, and chips n salsa. Their fajitas were ok; the steak was a little tough/cut improperly/against the grain. My son loved the chicken tacos. Overall a great experience and a special treat for us since we rarely eat out these days! Oh and margaritas!

I made my reservations on line, received a confirmation of reservation, HOWEVER, after traveling 1 hour, arrive at Chevy's and it is take out only !!! Apparently all of Sonoma County was take out only. This should have been indicated on the on line reservation.

Always a delight to go to Chevy's in Santa Rosa...especially during this Pandemic...We have been sitting out on their patio with a nice breeze blowing through. Other customers are spaced appropriately...The waitstaff is great and we always feel welcome.
Thank You!

I think of all the restaurants in Santa Rosa Chevy's does the best dealing with Covid-19 and the strict rules while still trying their best to make it an enjoyable experience. When it got cold out they even have heaters to take the chill off. We will continue dining with Chevys for their great service in such a trying time :)

This was the first time we went out to eat since sheltering in place and picked Chevy’s because that was always our go-to date night spot. We never had a bad experience but this time was different.

We were seated in an area where the sun was blazing directly in our eyes but were told it wasn’t possible to pull the shade down.

The food took forever to finally come out and when it did, it was about half the portion size it was before SIP. My salad was even missing ingredients that were supposed to come with it as listed on the menu.

My husband tried to order a beer and three of his choices were out so he settled for his fourth. When we finished our food, our waitress was nowhere to be found so we sat in the glaring sun and sweat until finally flagging her down.

Things have definitely changed. Such a bummer.

I used to enjoy Chevy/s every once in a while. Our last visit was pretty disappointing. The cocktails were lousy and sent back. Replacement cocktails weren't much better. Food was not very warm and didn't taste fresh. The best part of the experience was our waitress. I don't think we will be going back to Chevy's again.

It must have been a short staffed evening. My party of two arrived at 6:30pm order margaritas and guacamole... My margarita comes in a Shaker with 1-2 additional pours. When it was poured it was a darker color and emptied the shaker. I suggested something wasn't right but not sure what the issue is and for $15.00 each this is not what I ordered... Agreeing something was off she left the concoction there to return with a new drink. Curious..i tried the concoction...what I ordered was the Black Diamond Margarita...tequila, cognac, citrus juices and black sea salt...what was brought was a tequila & cognac...no juices... They brought another 45 mins later...then the guacamole was finally made...at 8pm we were asked what we'd like to order...
It seemed to be an off night, our waitress was frazzled and we had another waitress checking on us and telling us that OUR waitress was working on the issues and the guac was coming...it was 2+hours to have two drinks, guacamole and chips and fajitas... The only saving grace was the hot tub that was waiting for us when we were done. Again..a one off bizarre night at Chevys

Everything there was fine but when I arrived they didn't have my reservation. It being a birthday celebration I was upset you screwed it up and had to wait the long line. A table for six is hard to accommodate is why I placed the reservation in the first place. Get it together! Don't use Open Table service
