We stopped in on a rainy evening last week and had a good meal. This seems to be mostly take out, but we ate in and enjoyed our meal. I had two different kinds of tacos along with rice and beans. The rice had peas in it which seemed a little odd. The beans were a little salty for my... More

We really enjoyed our night out at Cha cha cha. Unfortunately there were two many people eating with us and I hope that it would take suffer long term. Because the food is definitely real and yummy. Best of luck, guys!

Just left Cha, Cha, Cha's. What a strange experience! This was our second visit to this restaurant, the last time was a few years ago and we really enjoyed it, so we thought we should try it on this trip to Portland. The woman that greeted us was nice enough but kind of just told us to sit wherever and... More

When we could not get into one of the swanky restaurants the concierge directed us to, we hopped on trip advisor and started looking for Mexican food (which we LOVE). My 13 year old son found Cha Cha Cha ... and we had one of the best Mexican meals EVER! The food is super fresh, healthy ... and truly unique.... More

I love pooping into this little gem and grabbing lunch or an afternoon snack! The food is fresh and the guava margaritas hold me hostage!

You go here for honest Mexican food, not white-table-cloth service. They have a decent bar and an excellent selection of standard Mexican dishes. All our selections were tasty and fresh.

I often go for the Big Mama enchilada, as I did earlier this week. It never disappoints. On a First Friday evening, I will add a Modelo. On First Friday's they even have salsa dance lessons for patrons.

I had a plate of three tacos with pork from their farm. They were good but price of $13 was a bit pricey I thought. The Cha cha cha IPA was good with citrusy flavor.

The food was to die for! The service needed a little help here so that's why only 4 stars. Their chicken mole had the most incredible sauce I've ever tasted. You could really taste the dark chocolate mixed to perfection with the spices needed to make it a mole. Incredible! The roja sauce on my Mama's beef enchiladas was full... More
