“Very good-interesting "bar" area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Good food, decent margaritas. Bar area is actually a long hi top table with stools. The BBQ burrito was very good. My husband has chicken fajitas which were good but had an abundance of onions to wade thru to find the chicken.

“Authentic New Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Always exceeds our expectations! Hot plates, unique sauces including a medium hot and hot, great flavors, quality ingredients, real green chilis from New Mexico, reasonable prices, great chili con queso sauce, Excellent pick two or pick three. Great spicy black beans. Best New Mexican or Mexican food in Columbus. Gets full by 6 p.m. on weekends. Get there early to get a seat.

“Amazing Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

There is a reason that there is always a wait at popular meal times! The food is wonderful - all of the standard fare - but to a level of quality that will make you wonder why you ever ate an enchilada anywhere else - plus some unique dishes. They are very accommodating of special diets (vegeterian, gluten free, etc.) - they can tell you exactly what is in everything and work with you to find something that you can eat. All of the sauces are amazing - it is hard to choose, so if it is your first time there, just pick one, and then it will give you an excuse to come back again to try the others. :) Don't forget that they are closed on Sunday, though - you don't want to be disappointed after you drive there!

“best mexican in Columbus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Great food, great margaritas. Our only complaint ever was when we made reservations 2 weeks in advance for cinco de mayo and then were told when we arrived that night that they were not honoring any reservations for cinco de mayo. We have eaten at Chile Verde many times over the years and consistently love it.
