Dinner at ChevysPosted: May 4, 2008 | Author: marga | Filed under: Restaurants | 1 Comment »
Update: Chevy’s is closed.
Yes, I should have known better, but a few days ago prompted by a desire to neither cook nor experiment, and a “buy one, get another one for $4” coupon, we went to Chevys in San Leandro. I, of course, avoided the baby back ribs. Instead I went for the beef fajitas, my ever favorite. The plate (see below) was semi-empty, I guess Chevy’s has decided that roasted veggies are too expensive and that presentation is overrated anyway. I had requested the beef medium rare, but as you can see there was no hint of pinkness on the meat. The portions of sour cream, guacamole and tamalito were also significantly reduced since the last time I’ve had the dish – and there was no pico de gallo at all. I know that food prices have gone up, but that was just ridiculous. The meat tasted fine, but clearly they are tired and bored of this dish.
Mike had one of the seafood combos on special. He thought it was fine, what he expected from Chevy’s, fairly consistent, decent food. The girls nibbled at their quesadillas.
For dessert we had their chewy sunday which was large enough for the whole family to share. It wasn’t as good as the desserts at Chili’s, but it was satisfying.
In all, I think I won’t be getting a hankering from going back to Chevys anytime soon.
