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.

Tried this place for the first time and loved it even before our food arrived… which ended up being delicious! Our server was so sweet and attentive, and the whole atmosphere was happy and colorful and lovely. I am looking forward to coming back!

New menu, different than pre-Covid. Not a single standard option so if you have picky eaters or children, I’d skip this. They kept jalapeño margarita which is still good. Also, the oysters and queso fundido were good.

My family and I tried Chido & Padres for the 1st time this weekend. We all were a little intimidated by the menu as most of the dishes were unfamiliar, but our server was helpful in providing info so we could decide. And her recommendations were spot on. The food was really really good.

The decor is cute, the atmosphere is fun and the service was good. The only feedback I have is that our service was a little slow and we had to ask for our server to come back to us a few times. Also, the menu could be a little more detailed about ingredients. We had a few surprises and had to send dishes back because they included ingredients that my sons were allergic to.

Just an overall fantastic experience. A MUST try. Service from every person was warm and kind and truly over the top. Especially the hostess—I had my birthday dinner here and didn’t expect anything special but she went above and beyond to make us all feel comfy and special!! Food was unique and delicious and the patio was cute, fun and relaxing. The decor inside was also so unique and beautiful.

I wish I could offer a better review. I was hyped after seeing the restaurant hyped on several different social media outlets but the experience once I arrived wasn't great. One, I had made a reservation through open table for 7:45 and they weren't ready nor able to seat us for a solid 20 minutes after and only after I had to inject myself in front of a hostess or two after being told to wait at the bar as they got our table ready. The service was slow. We had to ask for water at the table twice, since when people asked for water they only brought water to the two people that brought it up. We had to flag someone down again (a while later too since nobody was really checking on us much) just to get two more glasses of water. The food was mediocre and pretty expensive for what you got. The tacos felt like they'd sat in the kitchen for a while because when they came out they were so soggy you couldn't pick them up with your hands without the fillings falling through the tacos so I wound up having to eat my tacos with utensils, and leaving the soggy shells on the plate. The flavors were very muted and sometimes pretty flavorless for the cuisine type. The only redeeming quality is that whoever was slinging drinks at the bar was killing it. If I ever returned it would be to completely pass up the food and dining experience, and just make snag a couple of drinks on the patio.

Will never be back. It was way too loud without the garage doors open- the sound was just echoing. The food had zero flavor. I mean zero! We ordered chicken tacos, pork cheek quesadilla, and the goat cheese dip. None of it had flavor and was all very bland. The servers were clearly too rushed and very hard to have a good experience with given the noise level. I can live with noise and poor service of the food is amazing, but the food was terrible.

Chido & Padres "rebooted" after the COVID lockdowns, switching from Tex-Mex to something closer to heartland Mexican fare – don't come here looking for burritos and quesadillas. This makes the menu feel a little limited, but that said, we had no complaints about the food. We started with the excellent chips and salsa, and a cocktail. Then we had carrots, sweet potatoes and chicken tacos, all of it gussied up with interesting sauces and garnishes. Everything was delicious (if perhaps a little over-dressed – as tasty as the sauces were, our food ended up a little soupy). The service was merely OK, polite but inattentive. The space is well-decorated but hard and loud.

In theory the dishes sound good but once it comes out it’s all so heavy. Everything is fried or slathered in butter and after a few bites of the oyster entree (which wasn’t really traditional oysters it was like cheese on the oysters and then you eat it with the homemade sourdough bread which was good except it was lathered in way too much butter). I just felt line I couldn’t move after. The tacos and enchilada were also deep fried and so greasy. On top of all of that, pretty sure they only have one waiter serving all tables but they had like 3-4 people running food to the table. He rarely checked on us because he had all the other tables to deal with too.

Wouldn’t go again. It was nice to try once but that’s about it

Place was empty on a Saturday. Our server, Eric, must have been having a bad day because he was one of the worst servers I’ve encountered. It was painful for him to be there. Rude and uninterested. Food was subpar. Drinks OK. Won’t be back.
