Good fresh Mexican food

I have been to Cafe Verde many times over the last year or so, and I have never been disapointed. The trend in Mexican food the last few years has been to do a cafeteria style service. Initially, I did not like this type of service, I am more of a sit down and have stuff brought to me kind... read more

Used to go all the time. But things changed. Increased prices, skimped on portions, just not good anymore. I've stopped going because the last time, the food was barely average, daughters food didn't have any meat and they didn't ask, her apple juice was fermented. Just gross.

The food is prepared fresh with a good variety of choices and gluten free options. The staff are young but know what they are doing. I had enchiladas that were quite tasty. Very similar to Cafe Rio in layout and decor. Overall, a good experience.

The food was freshly made...and loving Mexican food the way I do...when I travel (which is a lot) ...I stop a many Mexican eatery's (new Mexico, CA, Texas...etc) the woman were back there chopping up all new ingredients...They have added more kitchen personnel that speak...

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
