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.

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.

We had a reservation at 8:30 PM. Did not get seated until closer to 9:00 PM, young light skin female hostess was extremely rude. She lacks customer service skills. Other than that our waitress was very pleasant and the food was delicious. The noise level is a bit too loud, making it impossible to hear the person sitting across from me. Due to the bad experience with the hostess and having to wait near half an hour to get seated despite the fact of having a reservation, my friends and I will not be returning.

Stuck us in the back where the servers were coming through every 2 seconds with piles of dirty dishes. Not a good ambiance in any way at all. Rice tasted like wood shavings, beans were subpar. Can’t blame the waitress she was amazing but the seating arrangements are terrible and food needed some more quality checks without a doubt. If the prices are going to be so high, you would expect a better ambiance and food is all I’m going to say

This place seems to still have some slow/understaffed/quality Covid server issues in their dine-in, so be patient. Bar seating (literally at the bar) is still the better choice for service.

Beautiful, professional service as always. I have no complaints, but in light of health concerns about dining indoors at this dime, it would be nice to be able to order from the happy hour menu when seated under the patio cover. Thanks for doing a wonderful job during a difficult time.

They don’t honor seating preference at all. We have requested outside every time and always get put inside and usually see them sit other parties outside immediately after. Not sure why. Food is good though

Be sure to order a large Sangria--if you order the small, you'll order two. They are delicious. Our service was impeccable and they accommodated our seating needs for a baby. I had the chopped salad with shrimp. Lettuce was very fresh. Grilled shrimp was tender and sweet. Very enjoyable evening.

We requested to sit inside although our reservation was for outside dinning. The staff kindly accommodated our requests and was very courteous. We ordered their amazing sangrias and the server recommended the queso appetizer. Had a couple of entrees and the server was never pushy about rushing us out. Great service and wonderful food. Always a pleasure coming here.

The noise level was deafening. I could not wait to leave the restaurant. I will never return to this restaurant on a Friday. The music was loud and the patrons we having to yell to carry on a conversation. If you want to have a relaxing Friday night dinner, this is not the place.

Our server Danielle was great. She was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We had the Chopped Salad which was very good, a little heavy on the vinaigrette which can make the lettuce slightly soggy and overly acidic, but overall it was very good. Music is a little loud, but our experience at Cha Cha’s is consistently good. Food is great, service is better, and ambiance is really nice.
