Great food and service! We sat in a secluded corner on the patio which was great for us. It was a little quieter, which was really nice for conversation.
This was my first time at this restaurant. One of our friends arrived late, and the hostess was very good about letting us finish our cocktails at the bar and seating us after our late party arrived. Shrimp tacos were excellent! I only wish you could substitute the rice for veggies or something else without an extra $7 charge.
Food was good but charging 3.00 for a side of jalapeño peppers and 2.50 for a small side of sour cream is a bit much. I don’t re all those charges when you first opened.
I usually don't go to trendy Mexican restaurants where you pay the premium for the ambiance. Since I already have my go-to when it comes to amazing tacos without forking over $10, why even bother right? I guess the exception is when you and your girlfriends feel like celebrating over margaritas, frozen mojitos (Yes! Get this!), and Mexican fare in a beautiful place where you are treated like queens. Enter Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen.
The atmosphere is casual and laid back with a full bar in the middle of the restaurant as well as an open kitchen where you can see the chefs in action through a clear glass from the dining area. I witnessed a mixed bag of young families with children, couples on dates, and big parties like us dining here that night. It was a full house.
Free chips and salsa is always cool to have at these places. I had the Shrimp Ceviche ($13) to eat it with which I regret doing so. It was not good. Period. I did enjoy the Carne Asada ($22) which was cooked perfectly medium and pink in the middle. It was very tasty especially with the chimichurri sauce however, I think it would pair well with their Mexican rice better than the potatoes it came with. I'm still debating between the Crab-Shrimp Enchiladas ($19) and Cha Cha's Flan ($6.5) for the best thing I ate here. Let's just say they both win, how about that?
Excellent place for a meal. Food was delicious and we had 3 staff members ask us how everything was. Some places just ignore you. Service excellent. Will definitely return.
Always great food and terrific service, Blood Orange margarita is awesome,
The food was Mexican fusion.
The ambiance was very nice but it was so noisy from too many people.
Nice place, despite them being busy, out server was attemptive and pleasant. However, the front people didn't seem as friendly. Drinks were great, food was a bit bland, in my opinion.
The drinks were great as well as the food. I highly recommend it.
Great service ( Ana was our waitress)
Great value ( went there on Wedensday night- enchilada night- half price)
Food was delicious . I'm vegetarian and their mushroom enchilada is amazing.
The seafood enchilada very good too.
Very good vibe at the restaurant.
We celebrated our anniversary so we got a free dessert.
We have been here a few times and really have enjoyed the food!
Lunch visit was quiet but dinner is very noisy. Tables are close together also.
We will return for food!
At first i was concerned with how open the restaurant was as it was a cloudy, kind of cool day. We sat though at the table that had the fire pit on it and we were very comfortable. Not to mention the fire just added some ambiance to our lunch. It was a great lunch.
Very nice ambiance and great tasting food. Great service.
Really nice lunch experience. Didnt realize it was taco Tuesday until we got there, so that was a pleasant surprise. Very nice waitress and nice atmosphere
Energetic ambiance .!
The food was too spicy for me. I had the short rib tostada. I couldn't eat it due to the heat level. I tried my dining partners beef taco...too spicy. Then I tried her chicken flauta...too spicy. The water glasses were very small and served without ice. I did enjoy my Caesar salad, and will probably have to stick to salads if I return. The staff was friendly. The noise level was too loud.
We came here to try this place for OC restaurant week! We loved it here! The food was amazing! I had the crab and shrimp enchiladas! I also had the pozole! The dessert is superb! I had the churros and my partner had the tres letches!! The service is good as well! The server that time was very friendly! The ambience was great, the background Latin music was very upbeat and it’s very welcoming!! Def, coming back again!!!
Enjoyed Monday date night although the restaurant only honored 1 voucher BOGO per table!
The grilled mahi mahi was perfectly grilled and moist. The vegetables were tender .
The carne asada dishes was outstanding as well
The tacos were ok
Loved the green salsa and The Traditional Margaritas
Service was robotics
Noise level was high , difficult to have a conversation with friends
Love that they have live music during Sunday brunch. The Restaurant Week meal was stupendous! I'm considering returning to try something else. If not, will def return another time. The live music is what sold me!
Always good. Always consistent. Love it. Would definitely go again.
Great food at this location - one of my regular go to places. First up - margaritas are great — have had enchiladas, carnitas, salmon (out of this world ) and various tacos - always first rate and high quality at a fair price.
Services are friendly / though they are busy and sometimes are extended in their obligations at busy times.
Well worth going ......
Margaritas were awesome!!
First time and I will come again. Great food, great service. Keep up the good work.
Cha Cha’s never fails. Great place for a great margarita and great food.
The restaurant had been a referral and did not fail. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambience. I would come again and will recommend to others.
Your staff was very polite and attentive. We didn't have to wait for our server to come by. Several of the wait staff asked how we were doing
The music was loud, the food was ok, our table was right next to another table, we didn't enjoy it at all
A bit loud due to live music. Made it difficult to have a conversation
Great food, lively atmosphere. Excellent tequilla selection.
Food was great (as usual!), and the service was really on top of everything. Great experience. Also, try the flan for dessert- a very deep flavor - very enjoyable
Food was mediocre at best. Guac was bland and carnitas was more fat than meat. Classic marg was too sweet. Our server was very nice, and the ambience was kinda cool, but food just was not good enough to justify a return.
Server was disappointed. We ordered guacamole (for 1,5year old baby) and ask if it’s spicy and our server said it’s not. When guacamole arrive and my baby tried she was shocked! I tried myself it was soooo spicy for us. We told our server that our daughter is suffering he said it’s not spicy for his taste because he is latino! What?! And we ordered 2 carne asada which comes with side potato and he suggest one of us to get different side like butternut squash side and i ordered. Guess what we got? Zucchini! Zucchini and corn. It was super delicious and we thank him but i feel like they need to learn difference between butternut squash and zucchini. Anyway nice restaurant, i love the ambiance, definitely will come back but servers needs to be trained.
We thought the food was delicious. Are server was not attentive. We only saw her when we ordered our meal and when she brought the check.
Was disappointed in the chicken frajitas--way too spicy Recipe must have changed because they not not been that spicy in the past
food was fantastic. service was a bit slow, but okay overall. would for sure go again!
Great food and amazing service. Monday night date night is a real value!
I love this place! It was our second time here. Food and service A+++++.
It was perfect
Wonderful food/ brunch. Awful service. I’ve been there only twice and they messed up the order each time. Also, the worst mimosas ever.
Excellent food as always!!
