Awesome chicken tacos!

Loved, loved, loved the chicken tacos at this place. Very flavorful! Wish I could eat here all the time. The restaurant was packed; clearly a very popular place. I would recommend getting there before 6.

We've eaten here many, many times over the years since it opened. The food is delicious, the staff is super friendly and accommodating and the prices are very reasonable. The food celebrates the peppers from the state of New Mexico. The portions are large. My favorite is the beef stuffed sopaipilla and chicken posole. I wish they had chile rellenos... More

While visiting Kapaa in Kauai, we came upon the Verde restaurant. It is tucked away in a small shopping center. Once inside, the restaurant has a great vibe and it was packed full with people. We grabbed the last seats in the house. We ordered Fish, Chicken and Steak tacos, quesadillas, and beverages. These were some of the best fish... More

We were looking for a quick bite in Kapaa, HI. Mexican with a Hawaiian twist sounded perfect and it was. The restaurant is in a strip mall next to the Big Save Market, very unassuming from the parking lot. They are aware of food allergies, both of my kids have them, and will work with you. My wife jumped at... More

This restaurant is perfect!! Food was delicious and the staff was super nice. I have been there twice and I enjoyed the meal each time. It is a small restaurant and you have to wait a little bit if it's full but it is worth it.

The service we received at Verde was some of the worst we've encountered ever. My husband ordered a dish that came loaded with onions - onions weren't listed in the description of the item. He's allergic to onions and asked for a replacement. The server told us that we could order something else but that we'd be paying for both... More

The service and food were very very good. It is a little place and you do have to wait but it is worth it. The portions are very good. The water in the mason jar is perfect for a thirsty person. The atmosphere is where it gets a hit (and the salsa was too sweet). It is very loud. This... More

The burrito was generous in portion but the salsa was weak. Was a step above seasoned ketchup. The waiter took way to long to acknowledge we had sat down and service was slow throughout the whole experience.

This is a great little hole in the wall place in a strip mall just off the main highway.. Services was super friendly and the food was fresh and tasty... even veggie options, which were very good indeed :-) Definitely a recommend if you like good Mexican food...

This is a great little spot in a shopping plaza in Kapaa. My girlfriend and I ate here while on vacation. She got some amazing Ahi tacos and I went for the Pastor burrito. Both were very good. We went on a Monday... $3.00 house margaritas and they place was packed. They stopped accepting new customers at 8. So get... More
