Their food actually tasted like homemade Mexican food. It did not taste like every other Mexican restaurant around. The food was well-seasoned and the service was great.

Love this place! Service is awesome! Been there many many times with our four boys. Margarita specials are great, salsa is the BOMB! Fajitas and chimachanga are a great pick, but if you want to try something new try their Stew. It is hot and has a nice kick, flavor will knock you down. I get a cup every time... More

This place is our favorite for Margarita's and Mexican food. They usually serve two freshly made salsa's with house made chips. The mashed potatoes are a favorite side and their special dinner servings are always the best.

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.
