Best margarita in Columbus

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... read 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.

Had dinner at Chile Verde Saturday, as always excellent. I had the stacked enchiladas with their green sauce, which is their hottest sauce. They also offer 2 milder sauces which are red. Always great service and some very good cocktail choices! Their Navajo Taco is also excellent. Actually everything I have ever eaten there is Wonderful!

Today my daughter and I went Chile Verde Cafe and it was outstanding. We started with the Gaucomole and Queso sauce and they were great. We had different combos I had the spicy beef enchilatas and a fish taco with chile verde sauce. It was amazing, with a host of favors tantalizing my taste buds. My daughter had the spicy... More

I have never been disappointed by Chile Verde. The only knock would be the wait, but it is what it is. This strip mall place is a gem. Tasty, fresh margaritas (on the rocks or frozen). BBQ Steak Burrito. Very tasty. Wish it had a tad more steak, but overall very good.

Chile Verde is our giro Southwestern fare restaurant in Columbus. That have great food and killer margaritas. My family has been going there since they first opened their doors and love it. It gets a little loud on Friday and Saturday night but it's well worth it. We were sad to not be able to eat there as much since... More
