I went in the afternoon one day, and a young guy was behind the counter making the food. He hardly smiled or said a word. I don't think that he is the friendly and enthusiastic guy other people have talked about. Like another reviewer said, it felt like I was inconveniencing him for ordering. The decor looks very cheap, the... More

Food wasn't anything special and way over-priced for what you get. Not much variety to menu. Also wished they served their food in more environmentally friendly containers or else use glass plates.

Look here's the deal with this place. If you are going for atmosphere, give it a pass. The room is one large floor with a bank of north facing windows looking out onto a bland parking lot and inside there's a couple dozen funky table and chairs sets that look like they were pulled from the Mexico City dump, and...

It's kind of a hit and miss with this one. Sometimes (most of the time) I get great service and the food is fantastic for such a great price! Other times the staff acts like you're inconveniencing them by being there, they will add half the meat I got from previous visits and the rice and beans are cold. That... More

My husband and I will not eat at Café Verde again. Each time we have been sorely disappointed. The tortillas continued to be nearly inedible, being 1/2 inch thick, the meat is dry and I've found everything I've tried is bland. The menu items and even the paint-splashed furniture is similar to Café Rio in the U.S., but miles behind... More

I have been here a few times now and it just keeps getting better and better. I think it takes awhile to get a good understanding of the menu and what it offers but I think I finally got it! Portions are large. One taco, quesadilla, etc. is plenty because of the sides of rice, beans, and salad that are... More

Amazing all around, but I love cafe Rio in Great Falls, so this was easy. Almost identical. Love the atmosphere, the fresh food, large variety and the staff did well. I can't wait to bring my husband next time, he's gonna love it!

My wife and I have been looking for a place like Cafe Verde for a while. One of our favorite places to eat in the States is Cafe Rio and we just haven't been able to find anything comparable... until now. We will definitely be eating there again on our next trip to Lethbridge. One word of advice... avoid the... More

This little place is as Authentic Mexican food all the way, it tasted like the food I had in Cozumel and Costa Maya. The fact you move along (like your at Subway) is a little different but the end result is good. You can try various combinations with your food so each time is different. The food is fresh and...

We went to this restaurant for the first time last week. The food was good: not great, but good. Self serve set up. Prices aren't too bad, until you order a drink, which increases the price by at least a third. There was more than enough food for one person in a meal. I did find that the music was... More
