WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Great service!! Loved my server! Gave me a birthday night to remember! The manager was super welcoming and I never felt rushed to leave! So coming here again soon!
Always great service, delicious food and refreshing cocktails when I come here. 😍
Chido and Padre is a great meeting place for friends and family. Parking is a bit of a challenge, and I decided to use the lot for the building next door, when all of the shops were closed. Not sure if this is OK, but it was the only option.
GUACAMOLE DE LA CASA with lime, onion, and cilantro.The guacamole was chunky but a little bland. There was a smidgen of onions (which I prefer) but it would have benefited from a little more lime. I give it a 6. The tortilla chips were great.
CHICKEN with smoked chicken tinga, guajilla salsa, onion, cilantro. The chicken taco was overflowing with filling. The flavors were very good and one of the better options. I give it a 7
CHIDO BAJA FISH includes battered fresh fish of the day, topped with veracruz aioli, red cabbage escabeche. The taco had great balance with the creaminess of the aioli and the pickled cabbage. I give this a 9.
PORK BELLY offers arbol chili glaze, cilantro, onion, queso fresco. The single slice had great texture and flavor and the onion added pungency plus a kick of heat from the arbol chili glaze. I give this an 8
SMOKED BEEF BRISKET brings rajas, avocado crema, and topped with crispy onion straws
Much too many things going on, I liked the texture of the brisket, but was overwhelmed with sweetness, and all of a sudden, a piece of bark. I give the brisket taco a 5.
Service was excellent. Our server was pleasant friendly and checked in often.
Overall, it is a good taco place in Buckhead. Is it in the caliber of some on Buford Highway? Not many are, but for a great place to meet and enjoy some pretty good food, C&P does the trick.
Service was not good. Food took a long time.
The food is incredible - creative Mexican and I’ve enjoyed everything I got. Happy hour specials are great too. I love sitting on the patio, and when it’s chilly they provide blankets. The service is so friendly, especially to our kids. Even though it’s a 20 min drive for us, it’s becoming one of our go-to restaurants.
Friendly service and delicious food! Would recommend the pork belly tacos and the guacamole :)
Garlic does not always make food taste better
I would recommend Chido and Padre's...however, I had some major issues the night we dined there.
I will preface this with
1. I was very tired and we didn't get there til 9PM
2. It was the Saturday night before St. Patrick's Day.
That said, I found the restaurant particularly noisy--to the point it was uncomfortable for me.
The food was good, but I didn't find there was a huge selection. I was hoping to get either quesadillas or fajitas, and I was surprised that neither were on the menu. What I did get though were the fish tacos and they were yummy. Perhaps on a "normal" night I would have enjoyed my experience more, but for my first visit, I found it just "ok".
Heather does a great job
The quality of the food wasn’t the same as my first visit.
Great food & service!
Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. The food was ok but the drinks were definitely the selling point. They were good and strong.
Wait staff was so knowledgeable, great recommendations and made the night fun.
Great service and food!
Celebrated my daughter 20th Birthday🎉🎊Dinner. Great service and the food is delicious. Our waiter and hostess checked on us to see if everything was good. Definitely will be back in the future.
drinks are good, food is terrible. Not sure I would recommend to any else ever again.
Poor service, dirty table, sub par food
Outstanding food and very good margaritas. New go to higher end Mexican in Atlanta. We loved the restaurant. Service was very good and attentive. Will repeat often!
Had a wonderful experience. The food is great. Sasha, our waiter, was awesome.
Only Friday or a Saturday Night is one of their busy night this place can not keep your reservations when you make them they were have you waiting almost over an 1 to 2 hours just to be seated when you make a reservation
Had a reservation for 8:45, weren’t seated until 9:30. It was a busy night, but service was terrible. Probably won’t be returning.
Michael the Manager was fantastic. Tyler the bartender also fantastic. AWESOME SERVICE and food quality.
Bano was dirty and smelly, service was very slow.
Food was tasty, soup warm not hot, tacos not warm.
Awesome experience and food!!! My parents loved it!! Mimosas fairly pricey compared to food price but overall we had a great time!
Love this place. Food is great, service was excellent and Happy Hour fantastic. Gets quite loud though so if you want to have a conversation you’ll need to find a booth to sit in.
Loud, strange service and poor entrees. Chicken had bones and gristle all through it. In tacos, enchiladas. Terrible.
Service was terrible and it wasn't that busy. They messed up the drink orders. We ordered a couple more cocktails and they never came so we gave up. We asked repeatedly for water refills. Our food orders were wrong and they lost one order. The food was good but not worth the hassle of service.
Everything we had to eat here was delicious - the Blue Corn Tlayuda was SO good - it was sort of like a pizza with a tortilla/black bean base and delicious toppings. The brisket tamales and fish tacos were really good - lots of interesting flavors. And the house margarita was really good - and a great deal at happy hour! Service was a little slow, it was very crowded at happy hour, but our server was very pleasant and offered great suggestions.
First time and won’t be the last. The service was great and the food even better. The pork belly tacos are amazing. The manager came to our table to see how everything was which we appreciated. We were there for brunch and definitely want to come back for happy hour or dinner as it seemed to be a fun atmosphere. Lots of outdoor patio dining when weather gets nice. Highly recommend!!
It will be much better when they start serving good Chardonnay like they do with liquor.
The food is amazing! The issues we had was they ran out of salsa and didn't receive any at our table until just as we were about to leave. The server apologized but still, how does a Mexican restaurant known for its salsa run out? Also it was really loud for dinner, I dont mind some music but we had to tell at each other across the tavle.
Great service. Love the happy hour.
Great place. Very nice decor and ambiance. Great service! Food was delicious and drinks were great. Had their margarita!
Fantastic margaritas! Friendly service and delicious food. We will most certainly return
I really enjoyed my first time coming for lunch. The only (and I mean only) thing I can suggest for the restaurant is to work on the ceviche dish (no flavor). Other than that, salsa/guac and cocktails were delish! The service was outstanding. Seriously! I didn’t expect it from a very casual and chic spot! I would definitely come back (preferably happy hour)!
Not coming back.
Even with a reservation we had to wait.
Service was terrible.
Drinks were inconsistent.
Food was cold!
The decore is beautiful, but that's it.
I had a great experience! They switched my boyfriend and I’s order but both managers came over and apologized, and let us take the mix up home to go! The food was great and good for your money.
Enjoyed the service and atmosphere. Food was average.
Great food, ambiance. Fun on New Year’s Eve with the dancing, DJ and champagne toast at midnight
