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. The server didn't show, so the manager brought us chips and salsa (pretty good, but not spicy enough for... More

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.

we have had dinner there twice, and both times I noticed the same things. 1) atmosphere is fun and friendly 2) very busy, so service is a little slow 3) food is average...far from authentic 5) live music 6) drinks are well made 7) very nice outdoor patio

We went to Cha Cha's for restaurant week and were absolutely thrilled with the quality of the food, portions, and service. The salsa served before the meals was excellent and the chips are prepared fresh every 15m. I strongly recommend the short rib enchilada, the food itself was more pan-Latin America than Mexican and a relatively creative take on standards... More

This is the wife's and my spot, we come here at least once a month. The green salsa is the best! So are the nachos and flautas! They have a green salsa with habanero, ask for it ..not too many people know about it, you won't regret it!

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.
