Buckhead is full of good restaurants, but as the capital of valet and dress codes, it’s not usually a neighborhood where you can just go out somewhere on a whim. That’s where Chido and Padres comes in, and why we like it. This new Mexican spot is a little hidden away on East Andrews, but once you turn the corner, you can’t miss this standalone restaurant with its massive sign and patio. Head here for Happy Hour with your friends, have some margaritas, and try out the tacos or their creamed corn tamales. It’s fun, super casual, and the perfect place for when you don’t want to deal with the production of actually going out in Buckhead.
