I've been coming to Cottonwood for years and never had the chance to visit, had I'd known what I was missing out on, I would've made a visit sooner. Was in the mood for a good burger. So, I asked Becky at the front desk at the Little Daisy Inn, the only motel I stay at when visiting Cottonwood/Sedona area.... More

We've been driving past this place every time we come to Cottonwood without hardly noticing it. We only learned of it through trip advisor. We (and half of Cottonwood ) came in at lunch time and had super good sandwiches. I enjoyed mine so much I ordered a second one to go. The second sandwich was later heated up for... More

Ive been going to VL since it opened and through two owners and its always consistent.Great subs, large portions,m killer burgers for a good price and a very friendly staff.I prefer family owned to chains and these folks are an example why.They actually deserve 3.5 stars.

Kind of a hole in the wall but great tortas. I like the chicken one. Hubby likes beef. Go off your diet to try their torta. It's worth it. Busy at lunch. Tables inside & out.

Third time for us. We love love love this place. I love the carne asada torta. The bread is just delicious. We all veered from our diet and ate the bread. They have a lot of choices but we always get the torta. Unique place!

Ordered the Torta which Bill the owner suggested and many others rating this eatery recommended. We did not know what a Torta was so had it explained before we decided to order. Essentially a sandwich of seasoned grilled meat with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and mayo. We had avocado added. It was very tasty. Recommend this place. It is by no... More

We were up in Cottonwood earlier today for business. We stumbled across Verde Lea Market Deli & Grill on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a shot. It was well worth it. The Torta was sooooo good. The meat was AMAZING. Seasoned perfectly, not too salty, not too bland. Only downfall would be that it should come with a side... More

Very good lunch. Fresh sandwiches, great grill with authentic Mexican food, tortas, tacos, and a nice salsa and grilled chili bar. Wish I could have a cold beer with my food, but no liquor license. If you want a great lunch, or just a good sub to go, this is your spot.
