Great food, excellent value

Nice clean venue and nice staff. Had the 3 Enchilada stack (a deconstructed creation) with shredded beef and glaze sauce. Very good and a big meal, took two layers of the stacks home. The shredded beef is plentiful, lightly flavored and the texture of a wonderful pot roast. The corn tortillas were... read more

I order a Taco Salad at every Mexican restaurant I support. This place has by far the "best" taco salad I have encountered from Florida to Ohio. Incredible. I love eating the shell but the "innards" were so good and so voluminous, I was too full to eat the shell. Definitely the "best" of taco salads. Also, my son-in-law had... More

We go here a lot and it's always been good. Usually get the fajita chicken salad. Drinks are good as well!

The great eats just keep coming at Chile Verde. This can't miss new mexican delight continues to surprise and please. Their special fruit-based salsas start every meal with a sweet tang and the variety of meat and sauces make for endless combinations.

This the best southwest food in Columbus. It is without doubt the best Margarita in Columbus. My favorite dish on the menu is the Enchiladas Estancia. Wow! And the queso is a must (you could dip a tire in that stuff and love it.). The spicy stew is amazing (and really spicy). Owner Tom Anthony and his team are excellent... More

There is nothing even remotely close in Columbus to true, authentic Mexican/New Mexican fare than Chilli Verde. I have been coming here for over 20 years and never disappointed.

I am from a Mexican background and measure a "Mexican" restaurant on the taste and quality of their tamales. Chile Verde passed with flying colors. Highly recommended.

Chile Verde never fails to impress. The service is prompt and pleasant. The food is tasty and has a special New Mexican flare. Always a good choice for lunch or dinner. Try the Stacked Enchiladas, the Anasazi BBQ sauce, or the Mac n Cheese. All good all the time.

My wife and I visited Chile Verde café based on recommendations from trip advisor. We were not disappointed. The food was great, the service was friendly; really great lunch. We both had the BBQ fajita burrito; it was delicious. Would definitely recommend.
