Loved the food

Service was kind of slow. A few times I had to get their attention. Of course the Soccer Game was on. I ate solo one night and then took a client the second time I went. Food was great. I would recommend this place if you are not in a hurry.

I would have happily paid the same price for half the amount of food, if the quality had been twice as good. Sadly, everything was lacking in depth of flavour, spice, texture. Not good.

I haven't ordered anything I didn't like! I eat here at least twice a month. The food is great with quick friendly service and good mixed drinks. The seafood is a tasty alternative if you're not up for mexican and the burgers are great too. I have picky kids who love the mac n cheese and homemade french fries. Good... More

I'm not big on Mexican food but we decided to try this place because it was right next to our hotel. I'm glad that we did because it was really good! It was cozy and the food was cooked fast and tasted great! If we go back to New Iberia we will definitely eat there again!

I've eaten here twice, both times I had salad and both were good. The taco salad was a very generous serving but the Texano salad was much better, loaded with beef, chicken and shrimp. My waiter was very attentive with additional chips and salsa along with drink refills.

The El Chile Verde was a warm and welcome restaurant. It's simple - plastic silverware and worn furniture - but the food was plentiful and tasty. The margaritas were especially good. The waiter was polite and attentive.

It was OK. Little flavor, bland really... but it was better than what we have in Utah and Minnesota. Similar to eating Mexican food cooked by non-Mexicans.

I will never set foot in this place again. The server I had ran out to my car as I was pulling out of the restaurant and was acting as if I did not pay. Quite embarrassing for me considering people were watching! He kept waiving my receipt. He did not speak very good English and I kept showing him... More

Being in Cajun country, this Mexican restaurant was OK. Having eaten Mexican food all over the country El Chile Verde was alright, but lacked any real spice or heat. I had the shrimp burritos which were OK. Small shrimp were sauted with onions and green peppers served with very tasty refried beans and rice. Hubby had a combination plate with... More
