Good Food, busy place

We had dinner here with friends on a Friday night. The place was packed and VERY loud. Our food was great. Two had the swordfish special, I had the chicken and another had tacos. There were no complaints, for sure. Make a reservation for the busy times. As I said, the Friday night atmosphere was... read more

Came here with a friend for lunch and was told they had a very good salmon dish. Not too sure at a Mexican place. But we were not disappointed at all. It was excellent. The honey glaze they put on the salmon made it so tasty and grilled to perfection. Had a problem with the bill that if I didn't... More

Had 3 tacos and they were delicious. Loved the beers on tap - Negro Modello and XX Amber, Pacifico and Firestone. They have a good happy hour too. Ate at the bar and service was very fast. Really enjoyed everything. Can't wait to go back.

Their chicken tortilla soup is dark and delicious, awfully good in December's cold weather. I'm not a radish fan, but their radish slice in the soup adds interesting texture and crunch. Flautas are perfectly fried, delectable. I'm not usually a fan of mango salsa, but theirs is good. Make sure and try the short rib tacos and/or enchiladas, You really... More

My husband and I are regulars at Cha Cha's Happy Hour and Enchilada Wednesday. They have the best crab and shrimp enchiladas. We also love their margarita's and sangria. My girlfriend is a huge fan of their mojitos. Cha Cha's cocktails are the best! We loved the calamari and lime-cilantro aioli until they replaced half of the appetizer with fried... More

My wife and I were waiting for a table at another restaurant and decided to walk around. Stopped at Cha Cha's to check out the menu (not new to us, but had not been there in a while). After talking to the hostess and Don Myers, who was walking by, we decided to stay there instead. I cannot say enough... More

Came here on a Friday night for dinner and had a good meal here. Free chips and salsa is always great! Our server was very accommodating and overall great service. They had a live band while I was dining there so it made for a very lively atmosphere. I ordered the chicken flautas (which is actually an appetizer) as my... More

So our pockets are now $70 lighter for a lunch that the three of us could barely finish. All right, let me be fair. The chips and the two kinds of salsa were delicious, and the guacamole was decent, but after that the meal went downhill. We got three different kinds of tacos and all of them were nasty. The...

I went to Cha Cha's with my daughter upon her suggestion that we go for Taco Tuesday and Happy Hour. Apparently we arrived too late to be seated in the lounge, but they gave us a table in the dining area.

located in downtown Brea across from the movie theaters this restaurant doesn't disappoint. It's a little pricey but their food is more on the gourmet side. You can get fries and cheap items as well. Overall good food. Patio seating for people watchers. A place you will return to.
