Excellent Mexican food and great service. Nice variety on the menu and moderately priced. By far the best Mexican Restaurant in the area.

Wonderful service, wonderful fresh and perfectly prepared Mexican food. I'm an ice tea snob and their unsweetened is consistently THE BEST. We had a group of 5 and we rearranged to move a table to our group. Loved that nobody got crazy about that. Waitress was super...Attentive and fast with the drink and chip refills. Always drive out of my... More

We came because our granddaughter raved about the queso! She loved it. We were otherwise underwhelmed by the food. The nachos came out burned. Very busy and fun environment. Sarah was a fabulous waitress.

Been a long time fan of Chile Verde - quality dishes, good service, good atmosphere. Easily the Best Margarita in Columbus. Queso is fantastic as are the Enchiladas Estancia. If you are brave, try the Mexican Stew. Hot!

On our way home, we got off I-71 north of Columbus for some lunch. We have never been to a Chile Verde nor a New Mexican restaurant (except when we were in NM).

Always like this place. Margarita very fresh, strong on lime, maybe a little lite on tequila. Crab boules app is spectacular. Enchilada stack (I forget its exact name) very good. My wife liked her Navajo taco and it looked great. Green sauce is spicy but not crazy spicy; one of several choices. Friendly service.

We eat here at least once a week!! The food is considered New Mexican cuisine and is always fresh!! House made salsa and guacamole are amazing!! Different levels of heat in the salsas! This is our go to place for taking visitors! We love the ambiance, the friendliness and the service! The Navajo taco is one of our favorite dishes.... More

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.
