Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen was recently nominated for Best Mexican Restaurant in Orange County. 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.

Consistently good quality, excellent location in Downtown Brea, street side seating or indoor seating available. It's a little neighborhood Gem.

It was really chilly tonight but we were seated promptly by the host who was extremely friendly. We sat at a booth and maintained social distancing. The ambiance was lovely. There was a projector playing a classic Mexican film and great music surrounded the interior part of the restaurant we were seated in. We were greeted by our server and started off with some cocktails. I had a
Blackberry Serrano Daiquiri and let me tell you it was phenomenal! My daughter had the Mexican Lemonade and that was delicious! We started off with some fresh warm tortillas chips and two types of salsa which were very very good. We didn’t have an appetizer and just decided to order two entries. I had the chicken enchiladas accompanied with black beans and rice and she had three tacos One Carnitas One shrimp and one short rib. This place is a gem in Brea. Our meals were very tasty and I couldn’t be happier. The staff was so friendly and were on top of their game. The cleanliness of the restaurant made it feel safe and comfortable to enjoy a night out. I will definitely be returning in the future.

We like to eat there almost every single Saturday for lunch or dinner, the chef seems to change so our favorite dishes always have a little bit of a different flavor each week

Cha Cha’s never disappoints. The chopped romaine salad with salmon and the chicken tostada are two of my favorites. But I can tell you anything you order there is absolutely delicious!

My friend and I had lunch on a Saturday during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious and the service was great, but the music was way too loud to be able to have a decent conversation.

Food was delicious and the service was professional, courteous and prompt. More than anything, I was annoyed by a patron that was excessively loud. Wished that the restaurant would have asked them to tone it down to preserve the integrity of all patrons' enjoyment and experience. Overall, great experience and will definitely return with the family. If there are annoyingly loud patrons then we'll move onto another restaurant.

Food is always good. For social distancing they had extra tables set up in the “alley” which definitely took away from the ambiance/experience but it’s understandable why. Food was great, as always, but seems like it’s more expensive then it used to be? Maybe not but the bill probably exed this place for us in the future.

Great food and service, but noise level was significant. Could not have conversation at table and was difficult to communicate with waitress. She was excellent and food very good. Wood baked carnitas and empanadas excellent. Would recommend, but not for a quiet dinner. Good for larger groups.

With so many gluten-free options, I was really excited to try this restaurant for the first time! The empanadas and clams from the appetizers menu as well as the chips and guacamole were great. For our entrées, we each ordered three tacos with rice and beans. We tried six different tacos so that we could test them all out. We were pretty disappointed by all of them. We will definitely be back and will either stick with the appetizers or venture out into other entrées but will definitely not have the tacos again. The place is loud but comfortable. Decor was decent. Service was good.
