Using only quality seasonal and organic ingredients, our Latin-inspired menu features spectacular Latin food prepared in a wood-fired oven, and a variety of fresh house-made fire-roasted salsas, which hint to the natural and abundant flavor profiles found in every dish.

The same attention to detail carries on to our hand-crafted cocktails; using only fresh-squeezed juices, house-made sour mixes, 100% Blue Agave Tequilas and fresh fruit garnishes for all of our Margaritas. Cha Cha’s House Margarita was named Critics' Choice for the Best Margarita by the Orange County Register.

Menu is on the smaller side. Every dish is packed with traditional Mexican flavors.

Great food per usual. I’m just not a fan of sitting at the walk-way tables.

Good food, good drinks. Person who seated us didn’t tell us that we had to scan the menu so we just looked it up and our waiter wasn’t to energetic. Overall good experience though. Would go back

Cha Cha’s is one of our go to restaurants.
The service, drinks and food are always top notch.
I will admit (only because it is so good) we have only had the grilled salmon and the catch of the day.
Well based on the taste and quality of the two fish plates we have had the other menu items have got to be amazing.
We will definitely be back very soon.

The food -- my favorite the carne asada -- was delicious. (I recently visited the Irvine location, and my carne asade there was so bad I asked the waiter to take it off the bill). I had two disabled ladies on walkers with me, and the staff was very accommodating. The margaritas were delish!

My friend and I had the $10 lunch special. What a great deal. We had a choice of 2 items and we had 2 flautas, rice and beans and a salad was our second choice. Great food for a great price. I would highly recommend Cha Cha’s

Overall we had a good experience at Cha Cha's. The only area that was lacking was the service from our waiter. He was lacking "table-side manners" and seemed forgetful.

Some bullet points about this place:
* arrived on time for reservation but still needed about 10 minutes of additional waiting
* somewhat loud; it was difficult to hear each other talk (unless you are a really loud talker), also difficult to hear the server through their mask
* food was very below average. I had the chicken enchiladas, but it ranked among the lower tiers compared to numerous other Mexican restaurants that I have had enchiladas at. The Cha Cha Fries were also very underwhelming.
* we sat on the patio area; there is also another section of seating along the sidewalk. It makes it an interesting ambiance and it had a good look to it.
* servers were generally attentive and I don't have too much to complain.

Overall, I could see myself coming back, but I wouldn't go out of my way to rave about it.

Lots of outdoor tables available. It was Enchilada Wednesday and the short rib enchilada over black beans was scrumptious. Interesting presentation as the enchilada was not rolled.

I was sitting for about 20 min without a menu and then someone came to order our drinks. They apologized that no one explained that we needed to scan the code for the online menu. The reception inside is horrible and I was unable to pull up a menu. We asked for paper menus. The waitress was short with us and rude. When she brought the chips and salsa she just threw the chips and salsas onto our table. I ordered the 3 kinds of enchiliadas and they did not taste like authentic mexican food to me. My friend and I were eating and catching up and we got the hint that we were being rushed to leave. The waitress must have come 3-4 times within a short time frame to see how things were and a male employee possibly a manager also asked us if we needed anything. They asked if we wanted dessert and told us they had screwed up and they needed our table to seat a table of 8. They asked if we could move to another table and they would give us dessert on the house. Flan was not authentic and the churros weren’t all that good either. It was really loud inside and I felt like I had to yell to talk to my friend. Overall , not a terrible experience but could have been alot better. It was obvious they wanted our table. We did not feel like valued customers and I would not return.

It was just ok. We were told we could participate in Happy Hour but weren’t given any Happy Hour prices. I ordered the shrimp ceviche and it was more like a soup or shrimp cocktail with whole shrimps and no tostadas. I had to use the complimentary chips to eat it. All in all it was just a meh experience probably won’t go back.
