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

We liked the food and the gigantic portions, but we were left waiting for 10 minutes before our waiter even came to the table. The "margaritas" are strong but obviously do not contain any form of tequila so don't get your hopes up for a real margarita here. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere was nice, but blatant lack of... More

We made multiple stops here during our six weeks in Las Cruces and after trying several recommended restaurants, Cha Chi's rose to the top of the list. Nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, super generous portions of delicious food, and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for? And oh yeah, we usually had enough leftovers for a second full... More
