We were in Columbus for the day and found this place to eat at, and we loved it! The food is really good and has a nice kick to it. The wait staff was also very friendly and allowed us to customize our dishes. We would definitely return if we come back to the area.

My husband and I came on a Saturday night and were seated promptly. Our waiter came over immediately - my husband was away from the table washing his hands - and asked if we were ready to order. I explained that we had not even picked up a menu yet, but that we would like iced tea and a little... More

Food was average. Service was fine. Atmosphere was okay. Everything is titled as New Mexico so don't go expecting anything other than southwest. This is not Mexican food at its finest. Not even close. Kind of pricey too.

Da boy (19 years old), da wife (a lot older) and I (sheeeeesh, don't even ask) had dinner on a Saturday night last weekend. We've watched this place grow and expand over their 25 year history here. We love the place. When it first opened the Green Chili Stew used to be (almost literally) *Killer*! I needed a cool damp... More

Chile Verde always delivers tantalizing dishes at a price that also pleases. I've been in OH for fourteen years now (I'm originally from NM) and I've always been a proud, self-proclaiming NM food snob. Chile Verde offers a unique menu that is based on New Mexico's authentic style and flavor. The owner, management and staff are incomparable. If you're new... More

We were visiting and wanted good Mexican food. The place is hidden away in a strip mall but it was a really nice find. The margaritas were excellent... I'd order the pitcher. The place was very busy but they got us in fast and really took care of us. It was a last minute find for us, but if we... More

Nice clean venue and nice staff. Had the 3 Enchilada stack (a deconstructed creation) with shredded beef and glaze sauce. Very good and a big meal, took two layers of the stacks home. The shredded beef is plentiful, lightly flavored and the texture of a wonderful pot roast. The corn tortillas were fresh and excellent. Very nice rice and beans.
