Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A very easy-to-follow guide, with tantalizing photographs and fun graphics that reflect the chain'¬?s atmosphere." - Sacramento Bee
Library Journal
Chevys is a vast chain (160 and counting) of Mexican restaurants that has spread across the country from San Francisco (Rio Bravo is a recent affiliate, based in the Southeast). It describes its food as "Fresh Mex," and one of its mottoes is "No Cans in Our Kitchen." This book features a lively design, sort of a scrapbook of photographs and recipes and tips on Post-its, and the text is written in a likable, humorous style. The recipes, from Smoky Tortilla Soup to Cracked Crab Enchiladas to Chocolate Tequila Bread Pudding, seem delicious; many of them, however, do have a number of subcomponents, such as chile purees and spice mixes--but that's why they call it "Fresh Mex." For most collections. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
