Great Option

Las Cruces has lots of great options for Mexican food - the reason I encourage those to visit here isn't to sell you only on the food, but the overall good experience. The food varies from good to very good, but I enjoyed going here multiple times a week during my business stay because the staff... read more

The portions are larger than other places but prices comparable and service at lunch is great. The enchiladas are outstanding. Go early...it is full at lunch. Great margaritas.

Nice quite spot for lunch on a week day. Music not loud and friendly staff. Sadly I was in a rush and couldn't relax and finish the meal.

Looks like a little hole in the wall. Has a dirt parking area. We were pleasantly surprised how nice it was inside! The food was really delicious! We dine at a lot of Mexican food restaurants and I would rate this one really high on the list! Food was served quickly and hot. Waitress was very pleasant and checked with... More

I've been here 2 or 3 times, always polite staff. One time there was a line out the door! Still managed to be professional and fast! Food is delicious and affordable! Be sure to get a huge cookie for dessert! If people ask me where to go for Mexican in cruces I tell them cha chis

Being from Albuquerque, we don't have many choices of where to get a really good Gordita plate; so, whenever we are in Las Cruces a trip to Cha Chi's for a gordita fix is totally in order. The food is delicious, the wait staff is friendly/helpful and the cost is affordable.

Mango margs are delicious but you can only have two. They are huge! Citrus chicken tacos are my favorite thing on the menu, but I've never had anything I didn't like. Great service, too!

I ordered the carne asada smothered burrito and it was delicious!! The meat was tender and tasty and not fatty. The green sauce was delicious too. My friend loved the green salsa that they give you with the chips, to me it was too hot. My friend order the nachos. They were huge but very good

I went to Cha Chi's on the recommendation of a local who said it was his family's go-to place for eating out. It's a small restaurant and right away I liked it because there was a sign just inside the door that advertised the day's special and then noted, "Please seat yourself." I personally like to pick where I sit... More

Cha Chi's consistently gives good food and good service. Today's service was a little slower than usual due to several large parties, however the food was still delicious and server attentive and helpful. Especially good menu items are the brisket tacos and fresh made limeade. If you're feeling daring try the fish bowl margarita!
