Final night of a 4-day flight layover, checked out a Mexican restaurant. 4:45pm, the patio was half full so we requested an outside table. What does the hostess do? Attempts to seat us at a tiny table next to the door into the restaurant. We said nope, and walked over to an open table with a good view of the... More

I loved this place. I went here with work friends for a birthday. The food was so good and everyone loved what they ordered. The Ahi was so amazing. We got a recommendation on adding the chili to the watermelon margarita and it was a 10. The prices are so great for what you get and I want to go... More

This is a great restaurant, centrally located in Brea's downtown entertainment center. It has a fun vibe within an open concept modern industrial design. The only drawback is that it gets loud and echo-y when it's busy so come early or late if you're looking for a place you can comfortably converse during your meal. Our menu favorites include the...

The employees, the food, the service, the atmosphere all make me love this place. Their sangria and margaritas aren't bad either.

pleasant atmosphere, food just about average, kinda expensive for what you get, tortas need much more meat in them, tooo much bread, no beef or pork, don't want to feel ripped off.

We had a large group which tends to confuse things for waiters and applaud those who can serve a crowd properly. There were no major mistakes, just under-delivered drinks and measly servings of chips for our large table. A few in the group, myself included, ordered top shelf beverages, with very particular instructions, but we are convinced that the waiter... More

Visited on August 3rd. Service was excellent and the short rib Enchilada was yummy! If you get the option, sit outside on the patio , the weather in the evening is cool and the inside seemed noisy.

This was our first time. My girlfriend her sister and I loved this awesome spot. The food was so good and the drinks were well made. We ordered the sangria tradicional, fresh watermelon & the classic margarita, all refreshing. As far as food goes we have no complaints. We ordered wood fried queso fundido (omg), ahi aguachile (tasty tuna), chicken... More

I read other reviews and they were right. The food and service was very good to excellent, however its is very loud inside. I don't know how they could fix that, but the restaurant remains very popular.

Small bar area, inside and outside dinning but inside is real loud. Very popular but food is really only average as is the atmosphere. Convenient local night out for dinner but not a special outing or impress your date place. Service is good. Best I can say is average, don't travel far to get here!

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.
