The food was hot and plentiful..as my father said, "it's Good Friday, you should be having fish..." I responded, "well at least we're near the river"...Claudia, the server was prompt and polite and she made sure we were well taken care of, a good meal all around.

Late meal after flying into Sacramento. Very friendly server, good drinks and an excellent meal. Chicken flautas were amazing and fried just right.

I hadn't been to Chevys on the River in awhile and decided to stop by for a late lunch at 1pm on a Monday after picking up a pal from the airport. Easy parking, promptly greeted and seated... and that was that. We sat for a good 15 minutes with at least 3 servers waiting on the tables around us. No water, no chips, no silverware, no comment that "someone will be right with you" or anything. We were invisible. So we left and had lunch next door at Craw Dads. Lemonade from lemons.

Went there for an afternoon lunch, usually Mexican food is oily..but this restaurant made the food perfect. The view next to the river is relaxing, staff were friendly and quick with our order. They are kid friendly and its a great spot for a date. The food options are endless and tasty. Will return and recommend to friends!

Based only on my experience I don't think they do any real cooking in their kitchen. No flavor in any of the meal I had. My guess is that they only use fresh lettuce, tomatoes and avocado and everything else must just be warmed up in a microwave. The tortilla soup, no flavor at all. I'm not sure how you even do that unless it came in a can and was warmed in the microwave and the avocado was tossed in last. If that's not the case then they've reached new lows in cooking. Try Jimboys drive thru for some real flavor.
