Unfortunately I didin't get a picture, but trust me it was so good! I got the red pork burrito smothered with green sauce and cheese. It has the pork in it smothered in their red sauce with diced potatoes inside. Than smothered with their green sauce and cheese. I couldn't eat the whole thing. But it was dang good! The... More

After a week of fish and shrimp we were looking for something different and randomly came across this place. The house margarita is spicy and fresh, a refreshing change from beer and blended drinks and the food was SO good. I didn't think I'd be looking for Mexican food in a strip mall in Hawaii but it was so good... More

We come here every year and it did not disappoint!! The fish tacos are amazing!! They are big though so hope your hungry!! The happy hour drinks are reasonable but I would say the house margarita is not the best.. tastes like kool aid to me.. have the beer instead!!!

Food was good and it was a good size portion. It was a cool little place, staff was a little quite but friendly. I would recommend this for some good tacos and such.

It is difficult to find great Mexican food in Hawaii, but I think I found it here at Verde. The food was flavorful without being overdosed with cheese and sauce...They use grass fed Kauai beef and locally grown produce, antibiotic free chic and pork, so one can eat here without worries. Also, try their signature drink, the Pins Verde picante.... More

We stopped here for lunch after riding the bike path. Could not have had a better experience. The service was spot on, the food exceeded expectations, and we loved that they support so many local farms and businesses. Portions were substantial enough that we had leftovers for dinner, and the price was a very good value. We spent about $50... More

Mex food with a spin. A little tight on the seating, but the food is good with a wide range of menu items.

Not the typical big restaurant experience as there are a very limited # of tables in this strip mall restaurant but oh.... the fish tacos were the best I have ever had. The combination of blackened local fish (cant remember the type of fish), the excellent sauce and the crunchy microthin tortillas topping off the whole combination made me want... More
