After a long hot day at work, we decided to check out Cha Cha Cha in Sellwood because Mexican sounded refreshing. We took the 2 block stroll up, and holy hell; what a mistake. We arrived at the entrance where there is a patio out front

If you screw up someone's order and accidentally give them beef (even though they don't eat meat), if they drive back 6 miles to prove it to you after your smarmy, disbelieving attitude on the phone, learn how to APOLOGIZE. You have just

Everytime I have gone here the lady at the front will look at my ID for at least 10 minutes before she she decides that I am 21. I payed $7.00 for a Hornitos Margarita that tasted like dirty dish water. The food is good and I like that outside seating, from now on I will go there for food but if I am going to get a drink I will just order the house margarita

Pros: Big portions for cheap

Cons: terrible margaritas for way to expensive

Their food is great! I Love the bright colors and atmosphere. Delicious sangria and outdoor patio. Love their chimichangas! Sort of pricey for a taco joint. Happy hour is a good deal though.

Yummy food! It's pretty damn expensive, though, for what you get. The burritos might be a better deal, but the tacos are super tiny and pretty pricey. They have awesome outdoor seating here, though, so that's always nice. :)

The cha cha cha can be good for some cheap food and margaritas but is pretty hit-or-miss with the food and drinks. Depends on the night and who makes the drinks and food. It is cheap though and they are always very nice!

Unfortunently, this restaurant does not pride itself on customer service or on the food it serves. First off, it must be stated that staff should not assume that a customer does not know how to speak Spanish when they blatantly say something negative about them right in front of them! I specifically ordered my food without cheese and of course there ended up being a large amount in my chimichanga. My friend ordered taquitos, they were slobbered with grease and looked to be cooked from the outsides but were completely icy cold in the middle with the beef having a strange taste. I would highly recommend that you try another restaurant and not waste your time or money on rudeness and undercooked food!

Cons: Waitstaff & Food

My favorite Mexican restaurant in town, or perhaps the whole state of Oregon!! First, the decor is very welcoming, be it a hot summer night on the patio or the warm colors inside to comfort you on a rainy autumn night. Excellent service, always a smiley staff--they're never to busy to give good service (although it can get very busy).

And the food....Tastes fresh, especially the pico de gallo, and always high quality. What I really like though, is the range, unlike other "Mexican" restaurants who only have the standard fare. If you feel in the mood for a regular, old chicken burrito, they got it (and they do it well); or enchiladas, they got it, (try the mole enchiladas!!!) And then to the more exotic and equally as good: Homemade tamales; rich mole; homememade horchata!!!, etc. And the tacos. Never have I had such genuine tacos, like they do it in Mexico. 2 tortillas, grilled to a slight brown, piled with meat, or veggies, and a sprinkle of onions and cilantro. Just like Mexico. On a cold winter night it almost takes you to a taco stand in a warm beach town in Mexico!!!

Great place. Im definitely a regular for a reason and think Portland has finally got a real Mexican restaurant!!!!

It was a little weird at first walking in because you have to order your food at the counter and then find your own seat. The food was absolutely fabulous and very decently priced. Highly reccomended for any lover of mexican food. This is coming from someone from AZ and who has spent a lot of time in Mexico.

This place has some of the best authentic mexican burritos I've ever had. From lean ground beef to juicy steak to shredded beef to mexican sausage to pork, chicken, fish or vegetarian burritos, this place has it all. Located in the heart of trendy Westmoreland with indoor and outdoor seating.

Where else can you get such a great Burrito for less than $5. This place is fantastic in the summertime with a few friends, grab a drink, order a burrito and sit in the evening sun chillin'.
The portions are huge for the price and the service is simple and prompt

OK, let me preface my comments by saying that I am a Los Angeles native who loves Mexican food. Thusly, I've tasted some of the best authentic Mexican and 'fresh-mex' this side of Jalisco.

The Sellwod Cha Cha Cha is super cute, and especially nice to sit out on the patio in the summer. BUT- looks can be deceiving. Because of the decent prices I gave them several tries and everything I ate was terrible! How can you go wrong with a chicken burrito? Disgusting chicken, that's how! Mmmm, Carne Asada... right? Wrong again! Out of sheer convenience and because I was famished, I went in again one day recently and tried a bean, rice, and cheese burrito with pico de gallo. This they do well and cheap. So if you avoid the meat, they'll do in a pinch when you want cheap Mexican comfort food in a cozy atmosphere.

Pros: Cheap, atmosphere, patio

Cons: bad meat, have to ask for salsa/hot sauce

What a fun little "neighborhood" place. Love the patio however a bit more comfortable chairs would do. The food is amazing YUM and cheap! Someday I will maybe be able to finish that burrito. Self service water needs a bit of ice (available if you reach behind counter to soda machine) but the food over rides anything else.

Pros: Cheap, Eclectic, Location

Cons: Cramped inside, Seating, Walk up order

With all the Mexican choices you have in Westmoreland, CHAx3 is the worst, but still not that bad.
Walk in and buy at a counter and find your seat. Great if there is a spot on the front patio, a little cramped indoors.
Food is average at best, stick to quesadillas they are fine. The salsa is horrible, heat no taste. But we did like the drinks and location. Did I mention the size per $ proportion rocks. Hungry, broke? Cha Cha Cha!

In Short
Comfortable and welcoming, the Sellwood location of this popular local taqueria is also impossible to miss, with its over-the-top magenta, saffron and purple color scheme. Inside, the bright colors are the primary…
