Cha! Cha! Cha!

Cha! Cha! Cha! Portland, OR

In a city with innumerable Mexican restaurants, Cha! Cha! Cha! has distinguished itself from the rest with good food, good service and great prices. I’ve been a regular patron of this humble little chain of taquerias for years now and have yet to be disappointed. The Pearl District location in particular ranks among my favorite local restaurants in the city. It’s a small and welcoming joint that excites all the senses from the moment you enter. The inside is comfortable with warm colors, rotating photography collections and the smell of amazing authentic Mexican food. The menu is remarkably large given the small stature of the restaurant itself. Among my favorites are the tacos ($2.00-$2.50 for two good size portions), including delicious carne asada and chorizo concoctions as well as oversized burritos and chimichangas.

The secret is out about this place, however, so expect to find a line out the door if you venture down during the prime lunch hours. But rest assured, the food is well worth the wait! And as an added bonus, there are multiple Mexican beers and Jarritos soda waiting to compliment your meal.
