“Don't trust Kelsey B, this place rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

To Kelsey B, seating is for people who ordered their food to eat there, not take out. Have some manners for those that want to eat there. Hope your pregnancy went well. Anyway, this is so far the best place we've eaten on the island here this week. I had the fresh ahi tacos and wife had al pastor pork tacos. Great food but cramped space. This place needs a big dining room and I'm sure they would do very well. The people working were busting their butts off to take orders and clean off tables as fast as you can say "Aloha!" You HAVE to go here if visiting Kauai.

“Love the food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We live on Kauai and this island is not known for it's great food but when you find a place that is always "spot on" it should be noted. Verde is such a place, if you like Mexican food and are not looking for fancy decor then this is a great choice. The dishes are simple but all are great and they don't skimp on the size. The atmosphere is also simple but very clean and we have always had great service either sitting in or when we take out. The prices are standard for Kauai and might be a bit high if coming from the Mainland. There are only a few real Mexican restaurants on the island and this is by far the best.

“Amazing food, great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had the Mahi Mahi Fish Taco and the Ultimate Chicken Burrito. The fish taco was the best we have ever had. The burrito was huge and very tasty, it was spicy but not overly so. You will not find a friendlier wait staff on Kauai. Would definitely go back. Located on a strip mall but don't let that deter you.

“Best meal of the week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Great service was excellent from the moment you entered the establishment. Great food that was a great blend of Mexican and the islands. The verde burrito with ahi was awesome. Not loaded down with the typical Mexican condiments but full of veggies, ahi and a touch of spice.

“Do go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Servings robust, yum. Sound value for the location (Kauai is generally spendy). Sorry we didn't go earlier in trip to check out drink specials. Glad to find local source for good hot sauces - not ubiquitous.
