“so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great find! Simple, basic restaurant with top notch food and great service! The guys working there a friendly, fun and know their food! This could be just any old Mexican food restaurant but it is not! Unique twist - Ahi Tuna Tostado for example - and really, really good! My determining factor is always "would I go back?". And this was a resounding YES. Enjoy!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Go on a Monday...it is $3 Margaritas!!
The beef (short ribs) is tender and shredded. It taste good on anything. The green salsa and red are excellent! (I was surprise being from the LA area). Big Portions so you might want to split if you dont have a microwave in your hotel room.

“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.
