Chevy's "Fresh Mex"

Oh no - a chain restaurant! Welcome to suburban hell! Actually, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The seabass had a great mesquite grilled taste to it, and the crab quesadillas were much better (much richer, less fishy) than the Ritz-Carlton Singapore's seafood quesadillas. But it certainly is commercialized, as seen in the little cactus ornament and birthday chants (cue Office Space: "You don't have enough flair"). Also, it's clear this is really American food rather than true Mexican food, as evident in the hard shell taco. Still, it was much better than I would have thought for a chain place.

Don't know if they still do it this way, but in the dawn of Chevy's time, they used to have a tortilla maker churning fresh ones out all the time . . . mmmm.
