Great! Enjoy a shrimp burrito and ask to sit with Dylan.

Stopped here with Mom and waited for a table inside where we could have a beer (can't have alcohol at outside tables.) When mom asked for a lager type beer Dylan suggested a mix of two of the local beers, and mom loved it. Her shrimp burrito was lovely and my poke ahi tacos were tasty. Only down... read more

Two of us visited for lunch, and were greeted by friendly staff. We took advantage of the $6.95 lunch special, one ordering beef and the other pork adobada. The third choice for the special is chicken. The meat is served on a soft taco, and comes with refried beans and rice. Our food came out reasonably quickly and the portions... More

This was decent (American) Mexican food. Definitely "American" size portions. The sopes for instance were twice the size of what you'd normally get at an "authentic" Mexican place. The flavors were more Tex-Mex, but very good. My fish tacos were really tasty. Service was friendly and fast.

This is one of those hole in the wall places that has its own unique, funky vibe. Very popular with locals as well as tourists, the restaurant offers delicious food. Try to hit it at non-busy times if you have the option. Every time I go there during the regular lunch or dinner hours I always have to wait longer... More

Four of us visited the restaurant. 2 of us had good meals, the other two were just ok. The ahi tuna tostada was great and very fresh. Considering not that many choices in Kapaa, it was fine!

Great Mexican place in a strip mall in Kapa'a. For the limited options available in all the Islands this place was great, great menu with lots of options, the kids had the beef burrito... I ate the little leftover, very tasty, my wife and I split a carnitas burrito "wet style" very tasty and the mahi fish tacos which were... More

We were in Kauai and Oahu four our trip to Hawaii, and my wife and I agreed that this was our best meal of the trip. The place is small, in a strip shopping center, and you may have to wait for a table, but the food was outstanding. The fish tacos were the best I've ever had. The staff... More

My son and I both have Celiac and if you are wanting great Mexican food this place has more options than you will want. Great Choices and very aware of Gluten Free.

As we were traveling through Kapa'a we noticed a Mexican food restaurant: Verde Verde (which in Spanish means Green/Green--an odd name?) We live in Arizona and our Mexican food addiction was letting us know we truly needed to stop! At the time we were there, the restaurant was very crowded which is usually a sign of good food and this... More

This is a small restaurant located in a strip center in Kapaa serving Mexican food. My favorite item on the menu was their Ginger-Cilantro Mojito. It was out-of-this-world! I would return to this restaurant just for that drink! The other menu item that caught my fancy was the pork kahlua nachos. The pork was tender and delicious. The other food... More
