We had a delightful Restaurant Week three-course meal for $20 each. Outstanding salmon, their roasted chicken following delicious salad and soup. We both had flan with tiny sugar cookies. And happy-making margarita! ChaCha's green salsa is a longstanding favorite. Yea!

Sit outside on a warm evening...
ChaCha's is always a great value on their promo nights (Taco Tuesdays, Date Night Monday, etc..) but we also often go here and gladly pay full price. The service this week was slow and we sat without water for some time on occasion but overall the waitress was extremely friendly and accommodating. On a warm night it's really wonderful sitting outside on the patio.

Smelly vinyl seats
Nice place. My wife and I have been to the one in Brea twice. Our first times were in separate days and with friends. On my first visit with my college friends, this was at lunch, I noticed a not so inviting smell in the restaurant or in the area we sat. I thought maybe it would go away if I go the second time for my son's bday. That evening at dinner, I smelled it again. I think I know what it is. The rag that was used to wipe the seats were not dried properly. It may be washed or unwashed. Mngement should check their cleaning materials on seats, tables, and floors. It's leaving a pungent smell. They should use paper towels or white rags on the seats so they can use some bleach when washing to disinfect, and should be dried properly.

Our server overheard one of us say that it was my bday and she surprised us with Cha Cha's delish flan! Another reason why I will continue to drive from Newport to Brea to dine there. :)

ChaCha's menu has improved
ChaCha's menu has improved since opening and the staff is always pleasant & professional. Note to self: Never sit inside! Yelling at your table mates is tiring, the noise level inside is intolerable. Our group of 4 passed on coffee & dessert so that we could go back to our house, brew our own and continue the conversations started at the restaurant. Same issue persists w/their sister restaurant Bruno's - sit on the patio for the best experience.

Excellent as always, Thanks!
My wife and I use to frequent Cha Cha's until we moved further away. It's now a 30 min drive w/o traffic. We both asked, why haven't we been here recently...and we'll be back often and soon after the refresher as to our love for their awesome food, wonderful service and upbeat atmosphere. Dang, we missed you Cha Cha's! Thanks for another great meal!

Good food, good service !
This was our second time eating at Cha Cha's , and both times have a great experience. The service was quick and friendly. I ordered the carne asada dinner, as did my girlfriend. Unlike most places that offer carne asada, the steak was moist and tender with great flavor. This is a wonderful place to eat before or after catching a movie.

Cha's Cha's After Work
The IT Admin. Team likes to get together socially once a month after work. Cha Cha's is one of our favorite nearby get together places. Good food, great service, fantastic drinks, fairly large patio area where we enjoy dining and people watching. They don't mind a little group noise, we can relax and laugh without the hard stares from other patrons. It's a great place!

Cha Cha's was absolutely perfect for Sunday Brunch. I made reservations for a pre-bridal dress shopping extravaganza to celebrate my friend's new engagement and we had a blast. The bottomless Mimosas were a hit! We all plan to come back soon for Senorita Thursday and enjoy another fun girl's outing.

Amazing food and ambiance
This is my second time visiting this restaurant and let me tell you, IT'S AMAZING! The first time I had the three tacos w/ rice & beans and they were terrific. This time I had the green salsa topped cheese enchilada plate, and once more the food was delicious. Also, the sangria is really, really, good and the flan is to die for! In addition to the food, the ambiance is great. We were able to sit outside during the warm summer night, with candle lit tables and good Latin music playing in the background. The music was perfect because it wasn't too loud, but it was there, which allowed for good conversation. Finally, give the Open Table app a try if you want to reserve a table ahead of time. This was my first time using it and it worked great!

Little too warm for eating
It was way too warm the night we ate here. The air must have been broken. Super busy.

We were celebrating a birthday dinner, so we were excited to try a new restaurant. We picked this restaurant due to the location, Brea Gateway. We had plans to attend the local comedy show, but was surprised they had a live band that was setting up just a we were leaving. We would return again.

Everything I've tried here has been delicious! Great unique flavors and very fresh food! Highly recommend!

Cha chas! Cha ching!
Was sceptical about the "new" restaurant that was going in... its been several years now and have loved every birthday, girls night, work lunch, and date night we've had there! Cha chas is always an option when we have out of town guests! The food and drinks are very consistent (consistently good!) and I like that...
Thanks Cha chas!

Great Date Night
My wife and I were about to wrap up our movie and i logged into open table to see if i could get a reservation here (was right across the street from theater). They had one and table was ready within 2 minutes if us arriving at Cha Cha's. I ordered a beer, wife order wine. Beer was nice and cold and my wife enjoyed her beer. Server was very nice and professional. Food came out pretty quickly. My wife loved her shrimp and chicken enchiladas. I enjoyed my tacos except for the mahi mai taco. it was a little fishy. The shimp tacos were excellent. The only problem was it took a tad long to get our check. Waitress was busy but i would sit in her section again for sure. We will go back again.

Overall this place was a delight. Made reservations online and was seated right away when we showed up. The waitress was very friendly and came by often to check on how we were doing. They had this great trio playing that saturday night which helped set a very lively ambiance. The food was delicious and the drinks were fairly priced for volume you're served. I definitely intend to return to this restaurant and recommend others to try it out!

I had heard that the food and service here was just "ok". This was not my experience at all. Service was exceptional. Our waiters were very attentive and kept bringing out warm chips and various salsas. We went during brunch but ended up just ordering appetizers and drinks. We ordered the queso fundido with mushrooms, steamed clams and mojitos. All were delicious. Especially the mojitos. I had never had a blended mojito and it was fantastic! Great place to sit, relax and people watch on a Sunday afternoon. I would definitely come here again. I can't wait to try more on the menu!
