    Michelle was outstanding and an absolute pleasure! I arrived yearly and was seated at a table at the very end of the restaurant (my request – away from the noise). I was waiting for a friend; Michelle asked me what my friend looked like, and she watched for her and brought her to the table. My friend I & were chatting and had not looked at the menu right away. Not a problem for Michelle. She was upbeat and friendly; always came back to check on us. We also had 2 coupons - $10 off $20 and 20% off the table order. Michelle took the time to see which one was the best for us. It was so refreshing to meet a server that truly enjoyed her work and having a genuine conversation with us. Please make sure you keep her and let her know she was an absolute pleasure.

    I love the easy use and availability to use OpenTable!!! The restaurant, server and the food were all fantastic! However, as a physically disabled person that using a walker it is EXTREMELY difficult to get one of the three disabled parking spaces adjacent to the restaurant. I am aware that there are additional disabled parking spaces in the underground parking area. However, there is no elevator from the underground parking to the restaurant level and I cannot climb the stairs with a walker! Additionally, the three disabled parking spaces on the restaurant level have vehicles parked in the spaces without disabled parking placards. These ILLEGALLY PARKED vehicles should be towed without warning! I don't care if door dash or some other illegally parked person has to walk a little further! I would walk further or up the stairs if I could! Because of the above listed parking issue, I am unable to visit this restaurant as often as I would like.

    Our service was the worst service we have ever had here. Our server gave us no refills, took our order incorrectly, and waited 25 minutes for a dessert we never received because it was taking so long.

    Our server was great; fixed a misunderstanding on the order and credited us. The shrimp and crab enchilada was great. But the taquito and fajita (both beef) were dried out. Good food; just be selective in what you order.

    Our service was ok. However, we order two alcoholic drinks and they were delivered after 15 minutes. We ordered two special meals (birria tocas) and the picture on the menu was deceiving. The food looked nothing like it. The food was cold, salty and undesirable. From start to finish this visit was by far the worst. The thing is that they weren’t busy at all. I know it’s the holidays but man put some effort into it.

    This is the second year we've enjoyed the Thanksgiving dinner at Chevy's on the River. The turkey with mole sauce is so wonderful, it should be an option year round! Our wait staff, Sylvia was so friendly and professional.

    My review is not of Chevy's. Chevy's was wonderful. However, my disappointment is with Open Table Our reservation was not on the Chevy's system at all. I showed them the confirmation email from Open Table and they looked a number of times and there was nothing on there system. So my gripe is against Open Table not Chevy's. Chevy's staff was exceptional!

    We waited 20 minutes past our reservation time to be sat at a table that was across from the kitchen, next to the freezing open door to outside, AND next to a table that reeked heavily of cigarette smoke. We asked to move and we were told we'd have to wait another 15+ minutes for a table, despite there being tons of open tables. We left as the service was so horrible that we opted not to stay and eat. It was a huge waste of time, extremely frustrating, and we will not be returning.

    The Carnitas was great! On the negative, I am physically disabled and there are only three disabled parking spaces on the main parking lot. I do not believe that the number of disabled spaces is in compliance with the ADA. Additionally, the vehicles parked in the three spaces did not have disabled parking placards and should have been cited and towed away!

    We don't have a Chevy's near us where we live, so we were so excited to pass one on our way home from out of town! The host was polite and the service was good but the food was awful. My husband's flautas looked like they'd be under a heat lamp for 3 weeks and even after asking for no sour cream a huge glob of it was smeared on his plate which we cleaned off ourselves with napkins. The tortillas which we remember being soft and fluffy were super thin and dry. My son got a plate that included an enchilada. He said the meat tasted so bad he felt sick. And the sides that used to be loaded on the side of the fajitas (sour cream, guac, salsa and corn) were either super small or weren't on the plate at all (I hadn't asked for anything not to be on my plate). I was missing some sides while my son who also got fajitas was missing others. Overall it was a super disappointing experience. Such a bummer.

    I only left one star because I had to select one. We had reservations for our anniversary and we waited 45 minutes to receive chips and water. Then another 30 minutes to order our food. We were at the restaurant for 2 hours before we had our meals. Service was not good and we will not return. There was no apology or anything.

    The food was good. The service was where they are seriously lacking. A server didn’t approach our table for about 15-20 min. Once she took our order we were left without drink refills for another 20 min. They were not overly busy.
