Description: Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen was born out of a love and passion for Latin cuisine….The California-Latin inspired menu adapts the culinary heritage of Mexico and Latin America to a fresh modern style. In the open kitchen guests can watch savory dishes being prepared in the wood-fired oven, while free range Jidori chickens roast to perfection and tacos are topped with homemade fire-roasted salsas.In the lounge the lively sound of handcrafted cocktails being shaken provides the backdrop. These tequila libations utilize freshly squeezed juices, housemade infusions, and fresh seasonal fruit. A variety of popular and boutique wineries from the Central Coast, Spain and South America also add a great complement to any meal.This energetic Mexican restaurant in Brea Downtown is always bustling with the sounds of its popular happy hour, live Latin bands, and the conversations of friends and family.

My husband and I went to a post-movie dinner --just walked across the street and were seated after a short wait. EVERYTHING was excellent -- the classic and signature margaritas were light, but tasty, and the chicken flautas were delicious. For mains we had the Seafood Caldo -- their menu says 'best seafood dish in Orange County' and at this... More

Everything was great about the experience. Try the Carnitas and the mango margarita. The service was awesome and they were on top of everything.

A great selection of tequila - worked well since I was there on a Tuesday and all were 50% off. The food was good quality. This was not my first visit and it has always lived up to my previous experiences.

Great for Happy Hour, not authentic Mexican food but a good twist on the cuisine. Located in Downtown Brea great location.

The same owners as Bruno's trattoria which is just footsteps away. These restauranteurs have the formula down. I've been here twice and while I do like Bruno's better, this is a good experience. Outside dining. Great margaritas. Outstanding service. Decent menu and good prices. You can't go wrong here. Relax. Enjoy!

Food and drink here is always great especially nachos and margaritas, carnitas enchiladas...well, just about everything. Can get pricey but well worth it for me. This is the place in Brea for Mexican food, drink and fun. Outdoor available.

Without a doubt Cha Cha's is a fun place to hang out. Great food, great atmosphere and those house Margaritas can't be beat! Whether you're on the patio people watching or inside listening to music you can't beat a formula that comprises all of the above with great value!

Nice happy hour deals in the bar. Good food and drinks. Get there early because the bar is pretty small and doesn't seat that many people. I would not go here on a first date. You will be screaming at each other to be heard in both the bar and the restaurant. It must be the tile floors, but the... More

On our first visit to Cha Cha's, we had horrible service. Our server seemed annoyed with our questions about the menu. She only made one return to the table to see if we needed anything. Finally, she gave us our check without asking if we wanted any coffee or dessert, which we did. When you visit Cha Cha's, and you... More
