Chido’s Tex-Mex Grill: New Dining Destination Coming to Downtown Silver Spring

Chido’s Tex-Mex Grill will be taking over the location previously occupied by The Eleanor at 931 Ellsworth Dr. in Downtown Silver Spring, according to a report from The MoCo Show.

The Eleanor closed last year and its bowling lanes and fixtures were sold at an auction last fall.

Chido’s first opened its doors in Laurel back in 2016, followed by the launch of a second location in Owings Mills in 2018 before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the pandemic’s impact in 2020, the decision was made to not renew the lease for the Owings Mills location, leading to its closure.

The Laurel restaurant will mark its 8th anniversary this June.

General Manager Horacio Romero shared with Streetcar Suburbs News last year the challenges faced by Chido’s during the pandemic and the subsequent relocation to the current Laurel site chosen by owner Fidel Rincon.

“Originally, Chido’s Tex-Mex Grill opened in Owings Mills, however, the timing was just slightly pre-pandemic; the lease was up, numbers were down and rumors of some mysterious virus were spreading, Chido’s Tex-Mex Gill decided not to renew their lease,” General Manager Horacio Romero said last year. “After scouting various locations and the virus situation settling down, Fidel Rincon chose the present site [in Laurel].”

Chido’s offers a Tex-Mex menu with a unique take on various well-known dishes, offering a weekend brunch menu and a wide selection of beverages.

The restaurant plans to open in late spring.
