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 at 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Cha Cha's automatically adds a 20% gratuity fee for parties of 6 and over.

    Went here for dinner and drinks with some of my cousins last night and it was GREAT. This was my second time here and it just gets better. The margaritas are good and all of the entrees/appetizers we ordered were great. Definitely recommend coming here for casual drinks and dinner.

    It is so loud that you can’t have a conversation at your table. We had a couple of good experiences here, but this time was not great. My son was trying to pick something and we couldn’t ask questions because we couldn’t hear the server. He tried something and it came out covered in a super hot salsa, but it took 10 minutes to flag someone down to replace it. Otherwise food was fine. We usually fight over the guacamole but this time left half on the table.

    I had a reservation for 2 pm and got there couple of minutes before 2 and checked in. We didn't get seated until about 2:20 pm. It took for ever for our server to come and take our order. Then one of the dishes was served with cold rice. I had to go and fetch silverware for our table. There was no one around to get us silverware. There are other Mexican restaurants around with better food quality and much better service to recommend than Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen.

    The grilled Romaine salad with salmon is always so good. Our server was not so good. She seemed troubled and in a hurry. Maybe she was having a bad day? But overall the lunch there was nice.

    I have the rib open face enchilada and as always it was wonderfully good however, serving white wine in a stemless glass is a no no you guys you’re supposed to have a long stem glass so that you’re not constantly touching the glass and warming your white wine,,,,,sadly my companions salmon was dry and the potatoes felt like leftovers to him!!! I have never had a meal like that at cha-chas before thank God mine was good however I have told two waiters about the wine glasses being inappropriate and nothing has ever changed who wants to drink white wine when it turns warm because you’re holding the glass in your hand??????? Thats the whole purpose of the stem you guys!!!!!!

    Food came but our utensils still hadn't . Kitchen didn't follow request for sauce on the side for a salmon dish . Gave us wrong bill for another table. Then our bill had a drink that wasn't ordered by us. Fries weren't seasoned enough- had to add salt. We come here every week almost and sometimes it's great and sometimes it's not.

    Food: absolutely fantastic! Noise level?: Way way too loud! Service: friendly, and informative. All that being said, probably the best, Latin American/Mexican dinner I’ve ever had! We enjoyed the empanadas for an appetizer, which were fluffy, tasty, and the smoked dipping sauce for them was off the charts! My fiancé ordered the Carnitas and it came sizzling hot with an abundance of flavor! For a senior citizens, it was extremely tasty, but not spicy! I thought she was gonna eat seconds! I enjoyed the combination enchilada plate, with a chicken, cheese and seafood enchilada, all served with the appropriate sauces ladled on top of them. Unbelievably tasty! I mean real taste to this food served here, not Americans trying to over spice what they think is Mexican dishes, just an extremely well thought out menu and wonderfully prepared food! Again for senior citizens, not too spicy! Our server, after discovering it was our first time there, brought us a free dessert, flan, which was the best we have ever had! Unfortunately, the noise level… way too loud, I realize this is a bar/restaurant, but let’s keep the real noise in the bar! There’s a birthday party next to us with about 15 people, and they actually had to shout to each other to hear themselves. I mentioned it to the manager, who immediately turned it down! As I said, great service, friendly, atmosphere, a great place to go before the show at the improv, or just hanging out in the area. WE WILL BE BACK!! Highly recommend to all, including seniors. We were actually on a countdown night to our wedding, which is 11 days away, and had a great time!

    Salmon and roasted chicken dishes were very good except the kitchen still forgot to have the glaze on the side for the salmon. It's way to sweet when drizzled all over the fish and vegetables so I always ask for it on the side. I just scraped the glaze off the salmon but it's harder to do to cut up calabasitas. Fries and chips were fab! I love this place on a Monday night! Server was very attentive

    We had a pre-theater dinner and it was delicious. Service was spot on and we never wanted for anything. The salmon is lick your plate good and don’t worry which enchiladas you choose. They are all good, with my favorite being shrimp and crab. Start with the queso fundido and you will not be disappointed…unless you don’t add the chorizo.
