This place is so overrated. I just don't get it. I can't say it stinks, but I will never go out of my way for this slop. I hate the corporate chain hell hole restaurants, but you are better off going to Baja Fresh. The hype for this waste of time is out of control. Stay home and open a bag of Doritos, grate some cheese and dine up!
CHA CHA BLAH!!!
The worst mexican food I've had in Portland, and I've been here 31 years! I'm guessing the shredded beef in my burrito came out of a can, hopefully not intended for dogs, although I wouldn't be surprised if it was. I ate at Cha Cha Cha on Hawthorn and thought it was pretty good, Maybe this location is owned or operated by someone else? Will never go back.
We happened to discover this awesome little place by accident, and since then we have been to every one of their restaurants in the city and back to this location several times.
For about $17, you can get two meals and beverages. The service is great, the food is awesome -- and the portions are huge, atmosphere is nice and the restaurant is very clean.
We have found this particular location to be kid friendly. We've been at least 3 times with a large party including kids and the staff/owners have been most gracious in moving tables to accommodate and helping us out with the little ones.
Go check them out. It's worth it!
This place is truly a treat. The atmosphere is cozy, the neighborgood is lively, and the owners are generous and friendly.
The food is exceptional and very well priced. The drinks are made well and also well priced. I will continue to dine here whenever I'm in the neighborhood.
