I decided to drop in to Cha Chas Cantina on a whim, while walking down the street checking out all of the restaurants in the area. It was early for dinner, so the place was mainly empty, but getting full as I left. It was...More

Was in the area seeing the sites, came across this great find. Had the taco salad with taco meat. Food took awhile to be served, but worth the wait. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the area wanting Mexican food.

I've heard mixed reviews about this place so I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. The chips and salsa were outstanding and much better than the usual chips you get at most restaurants. Tuesdays are good days...More
