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

Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Bit of a wait, but they had a large crowd. Portions are Texas large.

On a recent vacation to Austin, TX we ended up on our last night at a restaurant that was recommended by a local person we met and it turned out to be quite the gourmet experience. Verde's Mexican Parilla is off the beaten path on Hamilton Pool Road /Bee Cave Pkwy/ Hwy 3238 and off of Hwy 71 West in... More

We very much enjoyed the food! I had chicken Enchiladas that were done a little different than the usual rolled tortillas. Had a sauce on them that was awesome! They have a large patio area in the back with ceiling fans. Beyond the patio is a large area where children can play and run around while the grownups finish their... More

Our group of five was very impressed with the quality of the cooking at this Mexican grill located some distance from Austin. It is quite large with two dining areas, one a traditional dining room and the other, a large, covered, open-air dining area in the back with access to a huge out door play area for kids. We arrived... More

The menu here is a first rate continental menu. While there are many Mexican specialties on the menu, in a town chock full of Mexican restaurants, identifying as Mexican doesn't really do them justice. I had the duck which was outstanding! Others at the table had Chicken Osso Bucco (yes I said chicken), Mega Pork Chop and seered Salmon. See... More

Hamilton Pool road is still somewhat out in "the woods" so to speak, though suburbia threatens nearby. It is on the way to and from several towns and attractions outside Austin. I had not been here in years, but we stopped on the way from Fredericksburg to Austin. The mostly unpaved parking lot and general look of the restaurant both... More

Awesome Food...Less Awesome Service. We visited on Saturday 2/15 around 6pm. We arrived and the parking lot was full, we were seated right away in the inside seating area which was very busy already. (TIP: No reservations, but if you call ahead you go to top of the list when you arrive) We were seated and then waited for 15... More
