I went to Chachi with my wife and teen age daughter for lunch. Service was great, wait staff is friendly, restaurant is really comfortable. Well done. You can also get patio tables outdoors which are a popular choice on nice days. The food was good. It was NOT outstanding or terrific... but good. The house salsa is freshly made, served warm with tortilla chips. It was good, not too hot or too spicy, but flavorful. The pork tamales were tasty and very well made, highly recommended. The spinach enchilladas with salsa verde were very good. I thought they were well prepared and had great flavor. Chicken flautas, though, were bland and tasteless. The guacamole served with the flauta dish was unflavored, just bland. I judge any Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant based on originality as well as flavors and textures of the food. One major turn-off is the old canned 'wallpaper-paste' re-fried beans most seem to serve. Another turn-off is the unflavored, bland rice many restaurants want to serve with every meal. Well, in that capacity, Chachi was no different. Every dish we ordered came with the old canned 'wallpaper-paste' re-fried beans and yellow, bland rice. Why? If all the plates come back to the kitchen with refried beans and rice on them... then obviously customers aren't eating them! I'm not Mexican and not a chef, but even I can create flavorful, textured re-fried beans that people will eat. Why not serve grilled yellow corn in place of the overdone bland yellow rice? Why not serve Mexican potatoes? Why not fried yucca? Why not serve warm, spiced massa? In my opinion, Chachi had reasonable prices which were about in line with other restaurants. The service was definitely above par... so good job on that score. The food would deserve a very good rating IF they do more than open a can of re-fried beans and heat it... and ditch the yellow rice, then actually flavor the guacamole. It won't necessarily cost more than 20 cents per plate to add some creativity. There are really good reasons to try Chachi restaurant, including great service. I just want them to give me reasons to choose them rather than a dozen other Mexican restaurants in the area. As it is, their food is better than average but it could be so much better with just a little more attention to the plates. It's not good enough to serve every entree with the same two throw-away side items. I want them to succeed, because I like the restaurant. I hope they listen.
Kingwood lacks excellent mexican restaurants so being patrons for the first time, we were not sure what to expect. However, the quaint setting in the Town Center among the nice shaded area make it a perfect place to dine outside. We had the tacos al carbon and fajita salad and both dishes were delicious. The margaritas were potent and well made to our liking, made with a special Tequila brand. The chips and salsa were just right. The service top notch. Enjoyed the ambience of the joint and will Chachi's a regular outing for mouth watering mexican cuisine.
with so many mexican restaurants in Kingwood I really wasnt excited when i saw another one open, but of course had to try it out and all i can say is I'm Hooked! The food was incredible and the staff was so friendly, I have never been to a new restaurant that had it so together. I wasn't expecting much and was totally impressed. I have been there a few times now and have not been disappointed, this one is gonna last!!! If your up for Mexican Food, give them a try!
