All your Expectations

Chido & Padre's transports you instantly to the colorful eateries of Oaxaca, Puebla and Sinaloa, some of Mexico's most celebrated food regions. Our colorful dining room, decorated with vivid colors and handcrafted Mexican art, sets the scene for our chefs' vibrant flavors. Taking inspiration from the culinary traditions of Mexico's heartland, we use both local and 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, an octopus tostada, 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. 

Whether you're looking for a date night with a special someone, a friends' night out to hear live music or a place to get away from it all, Chido & Padre's has an environment to match your mood. There's the mysterious Bandito Bar, with its dark, fire-cured wood, that's perfect for exploring our extensive Mexican spirits collection; the playful and colorful Frieda Bar, inspired by Mexican artist Frieda Kahlo, that's a prime spot to order a fresh-squeezed margarita; the light-filled conservatory and dining room that envelope you in a festive atmosphere; and the expansive open-air patio that capitalizes on Atlanta's famously warm weather and features a communal and lounge area that lets you spread out to enjoy your meal. Chido & Padre's makes it our mission to show you a good time, showcase some of Mexico's best flavors and take you on a getaway for the senses, all without leaving Atlanta.
