We’re looking forward to having you dine with us at Chi Chi. Please be advised if you are dining indoors with us, a proof of vaccination or negative Covid test results in the last 72 hours will be required per the new city mandate. Masks are also required in any indoor spaces.

 

There’s something to be said for a go-to destination where ordering your “usual” gets a nod of recognition. The Chi Chi restaurant’s fresh, balanced California menu matches your desert mood, be it health or indulgence or somewhere in between. Here, we add rum to our coconuts. That’s simply how we lunch..
