The menu has a good variety of selections, more than most chains. It is a very popular place so go early or be prepared to wait. My only criticism is that they don't have a good selection of tequila and most of their margaritas are too sweet. The $11 margarita with Patron anejo is good but overpriced.

We like Mexican food on the spicy side and Chile Verde met the requirement. Generous portions, great staff. The chicken burrito with green sauce was excellent, recommend the sour cream and a lime shake up to cool you off! Get there early if you want to beat the crowd.

This place is great! They usually offer a "special" salsa of the day. Mango, tomatillo, etc... The food is amazing. I have never had a bad meal here. Always fresh and delicious. Get there early or there's a wait but it's worth the wait!

Chile Verde Cafe has been a long term favorite. The chips and salsa are homemade and excellent. All the main dishes offer a basis in traditional mexican fare, and then add a unique chef's twist on spicing and ingredients. A revised menu has just been added, and the new dishes continue the tradition of excellence and uniqueness.

Oh what a great find. This place makes a hatch stew that is out of this world. I have had dinner here two times and it is consistent. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a truly great meal with just the right amount of spice. It's great!!

Chile Verde Cafe, is by far one of my favorite places to eat. The food is great, atmosphere fun and family friendly. Margareta's are the best and I love to not drive so I can partake.

We used to eat at Chile Verde quite frequently. I've always thought the New Mexican/Mexican cuisine was good and different than the typical Mexican fare. For some reason the chef has always had a strong liking for adding soy sauce to his dishes, which I never liked given its an Asian-oriented condiment. I always ask for the soy sauce not... More
