There is no shortage of Mexican Restaurants here in Las Cruces. Cha Chi's is a popular restaurant with what I would consider as run of the mill Mexican cuisine. Their menu selections are, by and large, more varied than other competitors. It is quite busy at lunchtime, with the hard ceilings and walls the table conversations very quickly become almost...

I had green chili chicken enchiladas. They were very good. Husband had special Chuperas?? Second item under Entrees. They were very hot and he said they were not very good. The bill including two waters was right at $20 which included tip.

Friendly staff, great menu, good service, awesome flavor! Our favorite is the 1lb hamburger streak smothered on queso and onions. Served with beans and rice or French fries. We share it. ......fabulous, for $11.99

This was my first time coming here and I really did not have high expectations. But it was fantastic. I had the brisket tacos. They were delicious. And the margaritas are huge.

Dependable service, good food, friendly atmosphere. If you are in the area and want a good meal with no hassle this is the place. Reasonable price, I like their soups, very hearty.

Thank you for keeping our water glasses filled. This is one area where many restaurants fall down on the job and we reduce our tip. Not at Cha Chi's. Great job!

Enjoyed a well-prepared lunch here. Very crowded at lunch but the turnover is such that waits are not long. Excellent service and the menu is typical Mexican Restaurant with a couple of exceptions ( the Carne Adobada being one)!

One of the frustrations of living in Las Cruces is the lack of decent delivery places. Most delivery consists of the usual chain pizza joints and that's about it. Well, almost. Cha Chi's is the rare exception, delivering (minimum order $20) to most parts of Las Cruces. Standouts on the menu include their brisket tacos and their chicken & pork... More
