We had excellent service from the time we entered till the time we left. We had 3 different types of burritos and all were excellent. You can choose either normal or spicier gravy for your burritos. The chips were warm and the sauce was fantastic. Going to go back again soon.

We did a carry out from this Mexican food restaurant and out was very good..there are certainly differences between island Mexican food and the fare we enjoy in AZ, but it was fun tasting sweeter rice and potatoes in the burro. No complaints though and well worth finding it

This place is tucked in a strip mall next to a grocery store. We had a group of 4, so we had to wait about 30 minutes. Not a big deal, but it was raining sideways, and they don't have a waiting area inside, why should they, it Kauai? Seating is tight, food is good and big. Good margaritas, and... More

we first went to verde in 2012 when it seemed to be a best kept local secret. we went back every day we were on vacation, even if it were just to split a quesadilla. we went back in 2015 and was just as happy. it was more busy this time around, but the same local vibe was still there.... More

Great little spot for locally-sourced ingredients with a Mexican twist. Fresh seared Ahi fish tacos were outstanding, and try one of their margarita specials...delish and refreshing after a day of fun in the sun.

The only thing good about Verde was the price. My husband and I thought the food was flavorless. The couple we were with loved it. They do make a nice marg.

Sunday lunch, busy, but were seated quickly. Dirty bathroom, no papertowels, wet door handle, yuck; stayed anyway. Shrimp taco tasted off (did not eat them), pork burrito was good, but meat was overdone, salad was good, enchiladas were ok. Small chip bowl, salsa tasted like tomato sauce with basil added. After given food, staff forgot about us, never came to... More

Four of us went here for dinner. Great food, ample portions, attentive staff, nice atmosphere. The blackened mahi burrito was a favorite.

Verde is located in a little strip mall. Walk inside and you are transported to a quant and festive environment. Food was literally a work of art and fabulous at the same time! Staff was friendly and helpful! We had the stacked enchiladas which was very good!!! Restaurant was small so get there early.

Thank kjfort
