Chido and Padre’s transports you instantly to the colorful eateries of Oaxaca, Puebla and Sinaloa, some of Mexico’s most celebrated food regions. Our dining room, decorated with vivid colors and Mexican art, sets the scene for our chefs’ vibrant flavors. Taking inspiration from the culinary traditions of Mexico’s heartland, we use both local & imported ingredients to create an exuberant menu that blends adventurous dishes with familiar favorites. Let our friendly servers take you on a tour that might include ultra-fresh aguachiles, hand-smashed guacamole, duck sopes, octopus tostadas, smoked beef cheek barbacoa or whole fish al pastor. Don’t miss our four scratch-made Oaxacan moles and handmade tortillas crafted from single-origin masa to cap off the experience. No meal here is complete without sips from our creative bar team. From juicy margaritas and palomas to under-the-radar mezcals and tequilas, one of our cocktails is a sure way to ease you into a vacation state of mind.

First time . Was really good . Decently priced . Great food and drinks . Was sat near a table of 20+ little girls , which made it loud but it was ok. Service was average.

We arrived before the restaurant was open and we were greeted warmly and invited to enter, have a seat and relax. My wife and I have eaten here several times and the experience is always enjoyable. We can’t wait to return. Elmer and Deaderia Bowman

Beautiful decorations, and perfect view of the sunset! The food was very upscale and well-presented. They have all-day brunch, so I ordered the Barbacoa Hash and was not disappointed. Great place for group gatherings.

It is a very nice place to gather with friends and make some noise. Specially in the patio. I didn't have any drinks but the food was not exactly what you would expect of a traditional mexican restaurant and it is actually very difficult if you do not tolerate very spicy food. Sometimes you can do some changes in the entrees to have less spicy food, in this place you can't change anything, I don't think I would come back with my wife, it is more of a nosiy place to go have some drinks with friends.

Enjoyed my birthday brunch and celebration. Service was great and we stayed a long time and spent a lot of money on drinks and food. Would have loved to know if there was something the restaurant did for birthdays. We mentioned it to our server a few times with no so much as a simple acknowledgment of the celebration so that was a little off putting. Other wise, food is great and all the cocktails are amazing

The food was good, but I’ve never been cut off for ordering a round of beers for 3 (out of 8) people at our table. Then the manager or whoever the longer haired guy was through a fit and cut me off for now apparent reason. Very strange and not a good look for the “service industry” just getting back on their feet. The Bronzino was amazing though.

We appreciate your feedback and thank you for your kind comments on our Bronzino. We will be in touch to get more information about your beer order as that sounds very unusual.

Overall disappointing. The waitress was the highlight, but the bar and the kitchen struggled. The margaritas were just not good. The La Cuerva had little flavor and The Gobenador was inconsistent. One was good and the bartender forgot the mixers for the second. The food was fine but not as good as all the hole in wall Mexican restaurants we have in Atlanta.

I’m town for a business trip with my peers. Service was just horrible as the waitress didn’t even follow up with us. Definitely thought the food was overpriced. We had almost no lighting to even see what you were eating. Worst part was we had a table next to us that was basically yelling and it was so loud we couldn’t your own conversation or the server. You’d figure something like this a manager would come over and say something to them as everybody around kept looking over but it continued for over an hour. We finally got fed up asked for the check and left.

Thank you for coming in, and please accept our apologies if you didn't feel the service was ideal. That's certainly not the experience we aim to and normally do deliver. Also, while we like for our guests to have fun, we are sorry if a nearby table was too loud and we will be sure to keep a close watch for that. We do hope you will make it in again some day and be sure to ask for a manager so we can see to it that all aspects of your next visit are perfect. Thank you.

We sat outside on the patio which had a very strong, unpleasant odor. It probably was spilt and spoiled beer in the astroturf but please fix that. Nobody wants to eat with what smells like sewage wafting in the air.

The wait staff could be better trained too.
