Anyone Know What Happened to the Greenbrae Chevy's?

I reserve Chevy's for desperation time with 2-year olds: we drove by the Greenbrae location tonight and it was just . . . gone. Anyone?

  1. Wish the so-called Marin paper the IJ and its so-called dining-reviewer-reporter would keep on top of such events. Noticed that North Bay Seafood in Novato was closed as well -- not a word on when and why.

    1. The Greenbrae Chevys was one of the first Chevys in the country (possibly the second). The others are: Alameda (closed), Pleasant Hill, and El Cerrito (closed).

      1. If this is true, good riddance. Back in the day, Chevy's was awesome, especially this location. People flocked here for the addicting chips and salsa, sizzling fajitas, mouth watering flautas, and indulgent combo plates. There was even a quail dish on the menu. Over the years, Chevy's has predictably reverted to the lowest common denominator. Now it's about gobs and gobs cheese, excessive dollops of sour cream, boring salsa, piles of shredded lettuce, and a lame-ass excuse for corn bread.

        Again, good riddance.

        1. Well Chevys as owned founded by a local family when the first Alameda location opened. They did well, grew to a number of locations and then were bought by some huge corp (Pepsi?). Huge corp then sold it to a private equity firm based in Emeryville. So with all the changesin ownership, not surprising the quality has changed for the worse and has now become chain level food.

          1. Not to mention a Chapter 11 along the way.
