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.

Nice location

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 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

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.
