It's not a typical Mexican restaurant. No tacos, burritos or fajitas. I had the pork chop and it was pretty good. My wife had linguini and it was good too. The queso dip was $8.50 on top of the $3.50 for chips and salsa. It was a big bowl of queso but I didn't like it as much as other... More

This is a place we often forget to use because it is a little "out of the way" on Hamilton Pool road, but we should not! It is always a "safe bet" for very good food with decent service. This is not the standard "Tex/Mex" food you would expect. It is an interesting "take" on Mexican food which will delight... More

I strongly recommed the bacon wrapped shrimp app. I get this every time I am at Verde's. For dinner I recommed the chipotle pork chop.

We are fortunate enough to live near this great restaurant and have been here on several occasions. The food is consistently good. Expect a wait on weekends and during nice weather. We love the open area in the back where the kids can play.

Restaurant was practically empty on a Friday night, which should have been our first clue. Service was okay. Quail appetizer was very good. Food was served luke-warm. Small pour on the wine by the glass. Atmosphere is just okay.

If the food weren't so delicious we wouldn't keep coming back. The Noise from surrounding tables is so loud inside during peak times we can't even communicate without yelling. We call in orders often to take home for that reason. Some simple sound absorption buffers in the ceiling would help immensely.

Not sure what I like most on the menu as it is all good! I recommend the pork chop, duck or salmon. But everything is good. The salmon is the best I have had anywhere and I have traveled a lot and tried it all over. I think it's the grilling flavor at this place. They also have roasted corn... More

You won't find Mexican food like Verde's anywhere else in Austin. Every dish and every side is optimized to perfection with amazing sauces and flavors. There are no plain sides here. The chef does something to everything. I love the garlic shrimp, it comes with an amazing flavored rice and wonderful corn shaved from the cob with a fantastic creamy... More

Another date night with my wife. We hadn't eaten here in several years, but on a whim we decided to drive through the country. Fantastic! no wait @5:30 on a Saturday. Great service, with constant attention from not only the server, but also the manager. Very stout margaritas. Salsa and chips were good. Entrees were enchiladas and a unique Chile... More

Living right down the road, be aware this is not your traditional Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant. No tacos or enchiladas--better!! Stuffed chicken breasts, pepper-stuffed and bacon-wrapped shrimp, pork chops, lamb, quail, etc. Friendly small town staff, lots of regulars and great food for the price. Try the Mexican Martinis and mojitos. Ask Chef Cody about catering! Let the kids run... More
