I attended a class reunion held in the banquet/reception hall, and this venue was less than perfect. The hall leading into room, and the banquet room itself was hot and stuffy the entire night. Complaints for a/c were either ignored or it wasn't working properly. Facility has an overall tired look, has definitely seen better days, and is in need... More

I like Mexican food and this is good. I enjoy it enough to have gone several time. Service is always good. I'm never sure what to order but I've never not enjoyed my meal..

I like the way the place is decorated. Food was delicious. I ordered all vegetarian dishes. They made the dishes I ordered according to my suggestions. I will visit again.

I would have happily paid the same price for half the amount of food, if the quality had been twice as good. Sadly, everything was lacking in depth of flavour, spice, texture. Not good.

I haven't ordered anything I didn't like! I eat here at least twice a month. The food is great with quick friendly service and good mixed drinks. The seafood is a tasty alternative if you're not up for mexican and the burgers are great too. I have picky kids who love the mac n cheese and homemade french fries. Good... More

I'm not big on Mexican food but we decided to try this place because it was right next to our hotel. I'm glad that we did because it was really good! It was cozy and the food was cooked fast and tasted great! If we go back to New Iberia we will definitely eat there again!

Service was kind of slow. A few times I had to get their attention. Of course the Soccer Game was on. I ate solo one night and then took a client the second time I went. Food was great. I would recommend this place if you are not in a hurry.

I've eaten here twice, both times I had salad and both were good. The taco salad was a very generous serving but the Texano salad was much better, loaded with beef, chicken and shrimp. My waiter was very attentive with additional chips and salsa along with drink refills.

The El Chile Verde was a warm and welcome restaurant. It's simple - plastic silverware and worn furniture - but the food was plentiful and tasty. The margaritas were especially good. The waiter was polite and attentive.
