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.

The food was great. The drinks were good. However I won’t be dining here again because of the noise level. Walking in hurt my ears. I thought my ears would adjust but they didn’t. It was an hour of yelling across the booth to have a conversation with people a foot and half away. Halfway through we gave up and ate our food mostly in silence. We ended up leaving and chatting over coffee at another restaurant nearby afterwards. I will add the service was good but we were celebrating a special occasion and just couldn’t have a conversation.

The main reason I chose to go to this restaurant with my husband on Friday night was that I had been to Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen with some friends a few times before and I really like that area of Brea. However that night, my drink was truly mediocre, my food was so so and the service was slow. Our waitress was pleasant though. I don't think I would make a special trip to go back to this particular restaurant again, but I would definitely visit the area and try some of the other restaurants in the area soon.

This was the second time I dined at the place. The first time around, the food was prepared perfectly with the right amount of seasoning. This time, the seasoning was over done - my guess was being a Friday evening,a large crowd, the kitchen must have been very busy.
So my suggestion is done at this place on an off-day - the food will be much better!!!

Food is fantastic but the room is crowded. The tables are too close and there is too much noise. You can feel the sound bouncing off the walls.

Not enough servers with so many tables on a Sunday morning. We waited a lot between chips, entrees and dessert. We had to keep asking for refills and other items.

This was our first time to Cha Cha' and we went for OC Restaurant Week. The 3-course, $30 dinner seemed like a great deal. The apps (flautas and agua chile) were fantastic. Big portions and very fresh. Wife got the salmon. It was a big filet and was vary flavorful. I got the carnitas (which is my go-to when trying a new "Mexican" restaurant) and they came out looking pretty charred. There were some fatty chunks in there and they tasted burnt. The fish-bowl margaritas were big and tasty, but very weak. The band was setting up as we finished, but seemed to be taking a little too long as the 4 year old was getting ansty.
Honestly, I was disappointed as I'd heard some great things about Cha Cha's and was left underwhelmed. We most likely will not be returning.

Love this place. Our default for a Friday or Saturday night, or really any night that ends in "y". Mango habanero margaritas hit the right note of sweet and spicy. Asada and carnitas never disappoint. We rarely sit in the main dining room- the covered patio is a great space with heaters when the weather turns chilly, and the bar has a good number of tables.

Service would be a 5 star but I don't know why they didn't schedule enough services before noon on a brunch schedule. Our server was overbooked, she did her best and was very attentive, but management should probably make sure there are enough workers. The place is always packed, no reason to be short handed. Everyting else was terrific!

Inside is definitely loud with the live music, but the patio is quieter for conversation. Food was amazing! Absolutely recommend the Carne Asada without hesitation!

Sat on the patio and it nice. They closed the plastic shades to keep the heat in so it was a little louder than normal, but not too bad. Server disappeared and I couldn’t get a refill for way too long. Food was as expected, no complaints.

The only drawback is that it's really noisy so it makes it difficult to have a conversation

The service was good, the food was excellent and so we're the drinks. I loved the live music however at times it got so loud that we couldn't have a conversation. We were there to celebrate a birthday and I specified that when making a reservation and the hostess was aware because she asked who the birthday girl was but they never acknowledged it. They didn't bring out a dessert, candle or even mentioned it. We ordered dessert and expected at least a candle on one of them and nothing....just the bill. It just felt like a friend's dinner without the celebration.

We drove here! Salad and entree served at the same time. Why? What restaurant does this!? Queso sauce for the chips came with the meal! Why? Found a bone in the chicken tacos. Why? Seafood taco was cold. Why? The seafood in the seafood enchiladas tasted too strong. Starting to spoil? Why? Lots of unanswered questions! Loud music. Why?
