My wife and I stopped at Verde's as soon as we landed because it is highly rated on Trip Advisor. I got the burrito and she got shrimp tacos. The burrito was large and good; the shrimp tacos were absolutely delicious. The shrimp is battered and deep fried and includes a cilantro dressing that makes it taste so fresh. Hoping... More

My wife and I just got into Kauai tonight. We stopped into Verde for a quick bit based on some of the others reviews. I had the Al Pastor pork burrito and it was unbelievable. The pork was cooked to perfection. Charred but not burnt. The flavors and spice was just right. We will be going back this week. My... More

Four of us (two couples) went for dinner at Verde our first night in Kapaa. The restaurant is located in a strip mall and has limited seating so it took about 30 minutes to get a table. Also bussing was very slow which made it longer than necessary. Don't expect any atmosphere - just as many tables and chairs as... More

Verde has very good, affordable food. The staff is always nice and friendly. The margaritas are also quite good.

Ate here with my family a few days after Christmas 2014. It was really delicious. I grew up in New Mexico, which has a unique take (the best take, if you ask someone from there) on Mexican food. It's very hard to find authentic New Mexican cuisine outside of New Mexico, but Verde has it. 3 out of the 4... More

This place was great. The food was amazing, and there was a lot of it. I couldn't finish it all, though I did want to. If you are in the mood for Mexican, go here. You will not be disappointed.

Great friendly service and delicious yummy dinner…it was crowded, but they're going to expand to the restaurant next to them that will be closing. We'd definitely go there again! BIG servings, so we recommend splitting the dinner.

We read the reviews saying how crowded this place is -- and we were almost scared away. But we went for lunch on a Monday and though it is small (about 10 tables) there were four empty tables when we arrived. Maybe it gets more crowded for supper or on weekends. We are so glad we went. To start with,... More

We were in Kappa for a daily excursion and decided to find a place to eat at for dinner. Sure glad to have found this place! It's not much to look at from the outside, and is quite small inside, but we got lucky and were seated rather quickly upon arrival. The servers were running around like mad to provide... More

Wow -- what a great meal we had. My husband had the enchiladas -- made layered style. Very unique red aioli sauce and tasty. I had the huevos rancheros and they were incredible. Lots of tortillas (more than I could eat) came with my meal. But the flavor of the sauce, the beans and cheese and egg were just delicious.
