This was a thoroughly good experience. I was reluctant to dine inside but the room was spacious and staff were masked. Customers were masked when moving about the room and not actually seated to dine. Staff were very friendly, pleasant and accommodating. The food was delicious. I had not eaten at Chevy's in quite a long time, and was surprised at how good it was. I'm based in Oakland and my friend was in Palo Alto, so Union City is a good location for us to meet up. Highly recommend and will go again.

I arrived at the place on time and was shown immediately to the table I liked. Service was good but when I ordered for drinks the guy I talked to did not understand English !!!

Store is super clean and kept up well. Only issue was the tortillas weren’t what I remember Chevy’s used to offer.

Also I saw an employee pressing out the tortilla dough without gloves on, and using their personal phone with another hand. Kinda grossed me out.

Food was good though!

Terrible experience, we made “reservations” but it was pointless, we got a table 45 min later.. and when NO waitress arrived we had to leave, and chose Plan B

Seemed like the waiter was rushing us through our meal even though there wasn't anyone waiting for tables. Portion sizes were smaller than usual.

Me and my friend had a very nice time and even got to watch a football game in our area of the restaurant. The turkey was barely warm when we got it, but the taste was very good. Our pumpkin pie was not fully thawed out. Overall, we enjoyed our time at Chevys. Will definitely come again.

This visit was probably the best service experience we've had in the past year. We had made a reservation and were seated promptly on our arrival. Our server was great, too. She was very friendly and provided quick service - that was important as we were on our way to the Oakland airport after dinner.
The only complaint was that our steak fajitas came out with only a couple strips of peppers. We got plenty of steak, but almost everything else was onions.

My local Chevys shut down years ago so I was excited to go to this one. The restaurant was really clean, not very busy at all for lunch on a Friday.

The chips and salsa are still the best. Our server was really nice and kept us stocked. Our order was delicious, especially the new (to me) mango shrimp appetizer.

I would definitely return whenever I'm in the area!

I have visited this Chevy's location several times in the past 6 months since it's conveniently located on the drive from San Jose to Oakland airport. This visit was, by far, the best one we've had. We had an excellent server who promptly refilled our chips and salsa, saw that we were ready to order and got our orders processed quickly.
I need to find our receipt with his name and hopefully he's working the next time we're in the area.

Very busy and noisy.
All the waiters was very busy servicing their assigned tables.
Had to flag down the waiter a few times, but he was trying and running around.
Food was good but not great.
2nd blended Margarita had ice cubes, not blended 100% like first one.
No water or desert was offered, just brought check when requested.
Very nice and clean restaurant.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. We waited 10 minutes before our waitress (Sophie) came over and asked if we wanted drinks. She came over with 1/2 basket of chips and salsa about 5 minutes later then brought the drinks. We gave her our orders and she disappeared for a while. We needed drink refills and more chips and salsa by then. The runner came out with our meals. My daughter ordered her sour cream and guacamole in separate dishes with no bed of lettuce. it didn't come out that way. Also we still needed drinks. Our waitress didn't show up for almost 10 minutes after the meals were delivered. We told her what we needed and she said ok, then went and got the items. About 40 minutes later we needed more to drinks and was still waiting for more chips and salsa. She finally came by after my daughter said she was going to get the manager and I said just bring the bill. I have been coming to this Chevy's since the other Chevy's were closed in our area. I was not happy at all with the service. Also we were there for a birthday and Sophie never asked about the birthday.

We had a great time at Chevy's. The food was great, even though the prices have gone up (probably because of the pandemic). We will come back to Chevy's again but not as often as we have in the past because of the price increase.

Thetford was not as good as usual. The corn things were gummy which was disappointing since it's my favorite. The carnitas fajitas were greasy.

We have been going to Chevy's in Union City since they shut down the Dublin, San Leandro, Livermore and lastly San Ramon Chevy's. We love the food (especially the salsa). It was the 4th of July weekend so it was very busy. We arrived at the restaurant a few minutes early and we waited to be seated. The server was a little overwhelmed, he took our order and disappeared for a while. Then he brought our drinks, our food cam out a little after. We had to keep asking for chips and salsa. He never brought the check, we had to ask for the check after being there for an hour and a half. I love Chevy's but I won't go again on a holiday weekend.

It has been a while since I've been to a Chevy's. So much missed the chips and salsa. Service was very good. Met up with some friends we had not seen in a long time and the server let us sit and catch up - which was nice. Food was excellent.

We had a fantastic experience! Best service in ages at any restaurant. Guillermo rocks!! You have to ask for him. He is what every waiter should aspire to. Never did we want for anything, never had to flag someone down for chips, refills, etc. Very attentive I can’t say enough. Food was great too!

We go to Chevy's every chance we get. When the pandemic hit everything shut down. We were having Chevy's withdrawals. We were able to order online and pick it up after awhile, it wasn't the same. I like the beef tacos and flautas, when they pack it and you take it home, it becomes very soggy. So when they opened up again we were ready for crispy tacos and flautas.
