We stopped for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the flavors and quality at this local chain. I had a lunch special of tamales topped with a fried egg. My wife had a chimichanga. Everything tasted fresh and especially flavorful. The chain prides itself in serving locally sourced ingredients. One orders at a counter, but is served at one's table.... More

We went in and after figuring out what to order, we started to give the server our order. There was some problem with the register, though, and so we had to wait while she figured out what was going on. She called over someone else who worked there, and he said, "You'll have to wait while we figure out what's... More

My mom and my sisters and I were visiting Portland, and Cha!Cha!Cha! was near our rental house. We had just gotten into town from the airport, and we were *hungry*! As we were walking by, the tiny restaurant was well-lit and cozy-looking, so we gave it a try. We were pleased at what we found! The man behind the counter... More

The burritos are amazing - especially the chile relleno burrito - but the tacos are so-so. The green and red sauces are to-die-for. We used to always go to Cha Cha Cha for the happy hour margaritas, but Cha Cha Cha significantly increased the price. Then again, the margaritas are excellent, and were probably too good a deal to be... More

Excellent flavor. The mole enchiladas not only do they look good, they TASTE good. Fresh ingredients and local products is what you get. Service was great and the staff are very friendly too. The outdoor seating is also a huge plus.

I have been coming here since I was in nursing school, some of the staff even remembers me. I love their nachos and green sauce. Their food is fresh and always good. Always know I am going to get good food here and I am never disappointed. I always stop here at least once when I visit Portland and always... More

This was just okay. There are a few other places I wish we had gone to instead of here. The service was slow and didn't even check in on us, maybe because we were sitting outside?! I don't know but there are more reasonable priced Mexican places around.
