Not my idea of Mexican, but very tasty.

If you're expecting a traditional Mexican restaurant, this place will take you by surprise. While they did put chips & salsa on the table and do use some Mexican ingredients, I would list this more as an American restaurant with a southwest flair. That said, everything we had was good.

Verdes is my favorite place to take family and friends when they visit, and just to pop in for a date with the hubby! They have inventive, high-quality food that is fairly priced (I love the Pollo Palomino), not to mention some of the best margaritas in town and definitely one of the most buzzed-about quesos! Mmmm! I always look... More

The chicken azul was delicious and the al dente green beans quite tasty. Not your ordinary mexican food. Everyone at our table (all 10 of us) thought the food was fantastic.

By far my favorite restaurant. Food and drinks are excellent. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Kids can play in big field. Win, win, win. It's all worth it, even if you have to drive a bit.

Verde's chef's know how to grill meat. I have eaten here a number of times and everyone's meal is always cooked exactly right whether it was a steak, pork chop, duck, quail, salmon, chicken, etc. Sauces are tasty but not hot and compliment the meats well. The pork chop ($21.99) is a real highlight of the menu and well worth... More

I know food is always better at the source and not put in a container. Probably would have rated 5 stars if we ate there. We ordered the steak and chicken for carryout an it was very good. The poblano mashed potatoes are a must!!!

Very nice non-texmex fare. We had the Carne Verde and the Carne asada. Both were very good. Waitress was very attentive bringing drink refills before being asked.

I've lived in this area my entire life and have tried every restaurant that has come and gone, but this by far is one of my two favorite places in Austin. I don't get a lot of the hype of these other Mexican restaurants (remember I've lived here since birth so I have obviously been to a lot of places).... More

Took my family here for the first time today and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We all had chicken enchiladas and they were very pleasantly surprised: lime cilantro rice was the perfect complement to the enchiladas and the delicious pepper sauce (not too spicy). The bacon wrapped quail appetizer was outstanding! Next time, we'll try more of that and their pork... More
