    We have frequented Cha Cha’s and always enjoy our time. Last night the food was great but my wife and I are both struggling with stomach issues today. Don’t know that it is related to our dinner last night but peculiar that both of us are experiencing this today.

    Service wasn’t great. Our waitress seemed immature . Our salads came with our meal which we didn’t like. We usually get salads first and then our entrée. You were out of one of our entrées. Which wasn’t a big deal. The second entrée choice wasn’t very good. Not sure if we would come back

    I asked to sit out of the sun, and was placed at a table in the sun. I had reservations and even didn’t mind waiting if necessary, but not pleased w the hostess. Good thing the food and drinks were fantastic!

    The Carne Asada and Ceviche are fabulous plates of food. We went on a weekday evening and it was packed. I would recommend getting a reservation instead of walking up.

    "Service" was non-existent. We had to try to flag down someone every time we needed something. ie. more drinks or to take empty dishes from the table. Being Fathers Day I wanted more for my husband.

    It was crowded for a Monday, but that is because they have the great two-for-one date night special going on. From start to finish, our party of four enjoyed every moment. From the drinks to the entrées, all was excellent. Our server was attentive as were the other servers who helped out.

    Our chips were stale to start. We ordered cocktails before we ordered our food. Cocktails came after food was delivered, then our waiter was MIA. However we both order salads and our food was delicious, the salsa looked amazing but the chip were so stale we could try it.

    Great service, great food, with hot chips and delicious salsa. Not too hot, but had a nice flavor. The food is fresh and not heavy or greasy. Definitely filled my desire for Mexican food.

    Appetizers are great but the entrees are lacking. Drinks were really good. However, the noise level at the restaurant is quite loud and hard to have a conversation. Seating outdoors would probably be a better option if you want to stay away from the noise.

    I was hopeful for this experience and was left feeling disappointed. The service was terrible, though I imagine this was server specific. I was excited to order the ceviche sampler and maybe i could have enjoyed it more if our waitress had brought back the chips she took to be replenished and never brought back. That fish tasted fresh but the fish for the tacos smelled strongly on fish, indicating not soo fresh. The environment was so beautiful just a little loud. I appreciated the hosts accommodating my cold weather request for seating and the heater. Over all it was a disappointing experience that i would not opt for again.

    Service always seems to be hit or miss here on every visit. This one was a complete miss. Our server was just someplace else and not connected to his task nor us. Didn’t get proper silverware, our order all arrived in reverse sequence. Just an out of whack experience for us. NOT FUN.

    Only true disappointment was they are open at 10:30 and advertise for “brunch” but they don’t have breakfast items?! They had two egg dishes. A chicken/egg hash and Huevos Rancheros. That is their bunch. We brought our young kids (as many did too) and we were surprised their was not something like French toast or any other menu item besides those above for brunch. Tacos at 9:30 just didn’t work for them. Ha!! Great drinks though!!!
