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!

Been here for brunch with some friends. Great food and drinks. Sunday brunch - had live music so it got a little loud to have conversations but the atmosphere is pretty nice. Would've love to sit on the patio but it was pretty crowded. Will definitely come back again.

We started with the clam appetizer which was really good. I ordered the taco dinner which was ok. My brother had the salmon which was outstanding! Someone next to us ordered mahi mahi that looked as good as the salmon.

The food here has left me waiting for more. After being in the area for business, I find myself wanting to keep heading back. I started my meal with a margarita and the guacamole. Then had the Mahi Mahi tacos. The combination of flavors has was amazing

They are located in downtown Brea. There is only a little street parking so you will need to park for free in one of the close parking structures. It is a large restaurant with a nice outdoor covered patio area. We each had the braised short rib open style enchilada. It was delicious and very filling. But it was almost... More

This is a fun place with a variety of Mexican dishes, all just a little different from what you normally see. Try Mahi Mahi or Enchilada combination. Good service, lice outdoor terrace.

Their food is great and the atmosphere is lively - especially on the weekends when there is often live music. We really like their guacamole - very fresh and tasty. Also enjoy their Sangria.

I don't know if I've ever frequented a Latin/Mexican restaurant before, but I know this is the first time I've ordered a pasta dish from a Mexican restaurant. I wasn't too sure if I'd made the right choice, but it was labeled as a signature dish and so I went with it. I'm glad I did, because the saffron-tomato sauce... More

Description
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.
