    My Partner & I just placed a Walk-In Pickup order at “Taqueria Y Antojitos El Chido W Broad St”. While trying to order our meal, the wait staff seemed too pre-occupied to help us and when we finally got a chance to order, we were treating like we were incompetent. After finally getting our order placed, we sat down to wait for the food to be prepared. While we sat, 3 members of staff stood to the corner, chatting and making glances at my girlfriend & I making us uneasy and uncomfortable. Finally, when the food was prepared, a man brought over the order to the table we were seated at. I tried to say “thank you” to the man and he met me with a stare down, reluctantly giving me the bag of food. All in all, the service was terrible and their seemed to be an inside joke of some sort that we were not privy too… Now, with my food in hand, I rush outside, excited to eat. I get in the car and rush home. Only to find out that my order is entirely messed up! I ordered 4 tacos without cabbage and received 3 tacos with cabbage. The tacos were made using what seemed to be pieces of spare left-over tortillas. I ordered extra hot sauce and received half the standard amount. No green hot sauce at all. & we ordered Queso, Guacamole, & Chips and received a very small portion of chips. Not enough chips to eat the $13 worth of guacamole and queso we ordered. Of course at this point we are livid and let down. We were excited to get some authentic fresh made food, our first meal of the day even and it was ruined. So we called the store and spoke to a women. Immediately she started talking in Spanish to her coworkers saying “haha its the Americans haha” it was appalling. We already felt like we were treated poorly from the start but now it’s confirmed that they treated us poorly due to our nationality or skin tone. Absolutely unacceptable. You could hear the entire restaurant in the background laughing, thinking this was all a big joke. We were simply calling to see if we could get the 4th taco we paid for but everyone was to busy laughing at us to help us… This was a very unpleasant experience, this location was a go-to taco place for my girlfriend and I but we do not feel comfortable giving them our business any longer. We don’t even feel comfortable eating the food that was served to us in the chance that it was tampered with. You don’t mess with people’s food; that’s unforgivable.

    I was looking for a little, hole in the wall, authentic taco shop. The kind I used to frequent in San Diego. The style was authentic. Unfortunately, the quality of meats in the tacos was lacking 😫. The meats were overcooked and dried out. The carne asada, carnitas, al pastor, chicken,and birria were all jerky. Not a drop of moisture left in any of them. What a shame. Otherwise, they were perfect. I plan to try others down the street. Will not be back.

    I rarely try cachete tacos anywhere but decided to give it a shot. And boy they did not disappoint!!! The cabbage was new as I’ve never had it on a taco but it added a crunch that was AMAZING. Can’t wait to come back. Also my Margarita was amazing.

    I had tacos with shredded pork. Tina had the brisket which was a little too fatty for me. They use all fresh spices. The guacamole was excellent. Special note was the chips—they came out hot and were obviously home made—super yummy with the guacamole. Tina got a cucumber drink that was very refreshing and not too sweet. You need to order at the counter, then sit down and they will bring the food to you.

    My family and I LOVE LOVE LOVE El Chido’s. We first had their comida from the truck on Staples Mill, and were so glad when they got this spot on Broad St.
    The tacos are robust, often 2 are enough but a 3rd is always good too. The burritos are packed full. The salsa bar is complete con zanahorias y jalapeños.
    The Aguas frescas are divine.

    Best taqueria in town? Probably so. Good for dine in or take out with friendly & fast service. Their tacos are exceptional with fresh salsas, fresh cabbage, fresh lime, and fresh cilantro complimenting the flavorful barbacoa / carnitas / pollo / meat of your choice, wrapped in 2x warm steamed corn tortillas. I also recommend their Elote, and their Horchata or Melon beverage to drink.

    Food, great atmosphere, great place for a date. Authentic as hell. Very affordable. The flavor of the food truly comes through. You can tell that every dish is made and handled with care. Nice quaint little spot on broad Street. But very welcoming when you walk in the door. The restaurant is clean and very well taken care of. We had a very good Valentine’s Day date and then all around. Good time.

    Best tacos I’ve had in Richmond so far. Small seating area and its not a fancy storefront, but their food surpasses anything else I have tried. The fried tacos were amazing. Great flavor. Ordered to go and they were still super crispy by the time we got them back home. They are a bit greasy, but that just adds to the flavor. Will definitely come back again.

  45. Rory 2022/10

    This was previously a food truck and some of the best tacos in town. They just opened this restaurant and the quality is even better. The menu also has a lot more options. I highly recommend any of the tacos, especially the asada, carnitas, birria, and also the sopes. The ingredients are very fresh and they have 4 unique sauces at the bar. Chips and salsa are freshly made in house. They also serve beer and michelada. There is a pickup window for takeout like the previous restaurant had. I will be back many more times.

    I was hoping El Chido would be authentic Mexican street/lunch food like the taco places all over Southern California. It is not. It’s expensive and they’re skimpy with the ingredients. My Special Burrito was mostly layers of tortilla and cabbage with a little al pastor sprinkled in. Most places like this will throw a handful of chips in with your order. That’s $6 at El Chido. We also ordered the Burris tacos they’re known for. They were good but $16 for 3 tacos is very steep.

    Tl;dr: If you’re looking for a sign to go here or you’re unsure about going to a newer place, this is it.

    This is the best Taqueria place and I never wanna stop going here. Me and the fiancé ordered the birria tacos, fried cheesecake, and a small horchata, they’re all just amazing. I love birria tacos and they top any I’ve tried.
    On top of that, the staff are kind and fast, we got our food ready in less than 10 minutes. The vibes inside were immaculate with music.

    Just go here from now on.

    Edit: We dined in this time, it was my anniversary with my fiancé and food got out fast and we loved it even more.

    Cashier told me 10 min wait. 30 mins later, a guy brought my food. I requested a refill since the wait was so long & he gave me a new drink. The cashier said I couldn’t get a free refill and made me hand him the drink back. I guess so they can throw it away. I asked for beans on my gorditas, no beans. Kind of bland actually. And they use styrofoam for takeout. Not impressed at all with the food or service.

    I’ve been to Mexico 3 times, when I lived in California. This place is more like genuine Mexican than anywhere north of San Diego, that I had in California.

    I’ve now been to El Chido twice – and I will be going back many times. Several previous reviews claim this is the best in Richmond – and I’m not going to argue with that claim.

    My first visit, I got the Chicken and Chorizo special, as takeaway. It was 2 huge slices of chicken, marinated in wonderful Mexican spices, covering a mountain of chorizo and veggies, crammed into a standard foam plastic carryout dish. I am a hearty eater – and the chicken, chorizo, rice, and beans was enough for 2 good meals.

    My second visit, I got Caldo do Camaron (Mexican shrimp soup), and the house special burrito dish. This time, I ate in the restaurant. The camaron was 8 (I think, didn’t count them) fresh shrimp, in a quart bowl of broth, veggies, etc. The shrimp are huge and whole – and obviously had been nowhere near a freezer. As good as anything I ate in Cancun or Matzalan.

    El Chido moved there maybe a month ago – and in doing so, greatly improved that section of Broad Street. I am lucky enough to live within 10 minutes walking distance. I’ll be going back there as often as possible.

    Delivery, dine in, or takeaway – I’m going to enjoy living here, with El Chido nearby.

    If you want the total opposite of Taco Bell, an authentic meal, this little spot is it. If you drive too fast you’ll miss it but so worth it to turn around and grab a table. I’ve had their torta and tacos so far and both were great. Although the prices seem a bit high they match the portions tou recieve.
