    While we were very impressed with the food and ambiance of the restaurant, our experience was tampered by an extreme lack of organization and service at the host stand. We walked in to the restaurant on a Friday evening, and were told the wait for a table was ~45 minutes to an hour, understandably, though there were many open tables in sight. We chose to have cocktails in the bar area and want, though upon checking back with the host after 45 minutes, she indicated the wait would be another hour. When I mentioned I could book a table online for a reservation 5 minutes from the current time, the host advised me not to do so and that it would still be a wait. After waiting another 20 minutes or so, I ended up booking online and was seated immediately. The host was rude and unapologetic following. The wait time and general lack of service is unfortunate as the food was spectacular and the ambiance had promise.

    It is a cute restaurant. We were with a group of friends and we tried a few things. We thought the chips and guacamole were included but it’s not. There is a charge for health and wellness. The dishes are shareable if you don’t eat that much. Quesabirria- 7/10 Pollo poblano - 7.5/10 Steak - 8/10 Strawberry Milk Punch 10/10 Sabrosita - 9/10 Service was great and restrooms clean

    Went for business dinner. Menu is designed to share but you also don’t have to. Was beautiful ambiance. Perfect getaway feeling.

    Cha Cha Cha has been our go-to family restaurant since its opening in March of 2021. Even our boys enjoy everything about the experience, from the guac and chips to the rice, chicken bowls, and the churros. Shout out to Cassie who is always so friendly and welcoming. Shout out to Fidel who was incredibly attentive, and shout out to Mauricio who took the time to come chat with us.

    I've been here many times, but for some reason, the food was not as good as other times. The eggplant taco for $14 was marginal. The jicama salad was ok. The drinks are fantastic. We ordered a side of beans with chips, which we loved. My friend ordered the chile relleno, and she thought it was okay. My other friend ordered the bluefin taco, and she liked it. We ordered the sundae for dessert, which was terrific. The atmosphere, cocktails, outdoor patio, and overall vibe are fantastic. I

    Everything was great! Waiter was very attentive and the drinks were amazing. Food was very good but I was disappointed when I found out they changed the Pescado Cha Cha Cha. I had bragged to my friend about it and she didn’t get a chance to try it. I hope they bring it back soon

    We’ve lived in the neighborhood for over three years and finally made it here! Went for my boyfriends birthday with our daughter and the food was absolutely incredible as well as the ambience. Would definitely recommend the place and go back again. The steak is absolutely amazing!
