Four of us went and the bill was $56, food was fresh and hot. Good value for the money. Small but clean in town food.

What a nice find! Friend lived in the area and we tried it out. Drinks were good and they brew their own beer. Salsa was great. Food was tasty with good portions. Everything tasted fresh and good quality. Not bland but not overly spicy. Nice staff. Would definitely go back!!

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.
