Using only quality seasonal and organic ingredients, our Latin-inspired menu features spectacular Latin food prepared in a wood-fired oven, and a variety of fresh house-made fire-roasted salsas, which hint to the natural and abundant flavor profiles found in every dish.

The same attention to detail carries on to our hand-crafted cocktails; using only fresh-squeezed juices, house-made sour mixes, 100% Blue Agave Tequilas and fresh fruit garnishes for all of our Margaritas. Cha Cha’s House Margarita was named Critics' Choice for the Best Margarita by the Orange County Register.

The carne asada was delicious, very tender and juicy and full of flavor. We arrived on time with our opentable reservation and only had to wait five minutes to get a nice booth. Very nice date night for my husband and I.

Food was okay.. nothing grand or amazing. The service was bad, we had our dinner reservations for 5 PM, the restaurant wasn't too over packed. Our waiter seemed like he had his head somewhere else as he kept getting things wrong with our order. Also, he didn't bother to come back once while we ate to see if we wanted any refills. Not really impressed with the place.

Food and service are outstanding. Whether a favorite like the wood fired carnitas or the catch of the day, the flavors are fresh and complex. Service is prompt and attentive without being overbearing.

We were celebrating a Birthday. Wanted to sit outside but there were flies around the tables. We asked to be seated inside instead. Our waiter was friendly but not attentive. After he got our drinks and a small bowl of chips it took him a long time to come back to take our order. We had to ask him for drink refills. Ordered an appetizer and he brought it just before our meal. He was slow to bring more chips. I Asked for a refill and he brought it 20 minutes later. Waiters just seemed to be standing around. My Cheese Enchilada meal was good. The other 3 people had tacos. Fish Taco's were very dried out and tasteless. We would never go back!

Honestly thought the food would be better. The service was super slow but we imagine they are short staffed. Our waitress was really friendly and apologetic that everything would take so long to arrive. I would return just for drinks, but probably wouldn’t dine there again.
Also we went for the lunch specials and were told they were only doing dinner menu.

First, after sitting in the bar, we were there a good 15 minutes before we had to flag down a waiter. Secondly, the Caesar salad is under dressed I asked twice for more dressing. Never received it. My husband was not finished with his meal and the waiter was already picking up the plate. The worst service ever!

What an amazing meal. The empanada appetiser was absolutely delicious. The chicken enchiladas were so full of flavor the carnitas skillet was tender and superb. Great mojito and blackberry margarita. We will definitely be back soon. Great chips & salsa too. Great Latin cuisine with a small twist.

1st time coming here and can’t say I’ll be back, the food was cold in the center along with the tortillas. We had some type of nasty either hair ball or dust ball near our table. For the amount of money you pay to eat here I was hoping for a good experience.

The service was excellent and the food was amazingly delicious.
Our server, Danielle would check on us frequently which is rare when a restaurant is busy, and it was. This was my first time there but definitely not my last.

Their appetizers are fresh, we ordered shrimp ceviche and guacamole…10/10

Our dinner consisted of chicken enchiladas (OMG, delicious) and the carne asada dinner which was cooked perfectly.

Lastly, can’t forget the cocktails…pepino martinis, are to die for. A definite MUST!

I believe I’ve found my new favorite restaurant in Brea. 🥰

The service was amazing. We only waited for a couple of minutes till they called us to seat. We ordered the ceviche shrimp. It was too sour for us and told the waiter. Didn’t expect for them to take it out of our bill. They’re very understanding. The crab & shrimp enchiladas and carnitas dish were amazing. Great experience overall.

I ordered the Caesar salad with chicken. The chicken was so dry it was hard to cut it with a knife. It was also on the bar menu for $7.00. Added chicken and it jumped to $16.00. Ridiculous!

Understand the abbreviated menu but the food didn’t have the same depth of flavor as pre Covid
Service was great and genuine and the outdoor patio on a nice day is welcome
Unsure why the music is so loud outside though - would have liked to hear people better
Overall - I still enjoy the upbeat atmosphere of this restaurant and will recommend it to anyone wanting a party theme with their occasion
