The restaurant is in an older strip mall but do not let that deter you on visiting. It is popular family friendly restaurant. We had great service from the moment we stepped in the door. I must admit Mexican food is not high on my list of favorite places to eat but Chile Verde got my attention. They offer a... More

My first choice is never Mexican but when someone asks me to join them at chile verde I never protest. Service is always top notch. I've never had to ask for a chip/salsa refill or even a drink refill! I suggest trying something new every time you go. I have not been disappointed yet!

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). It is a small storefront-sort of place but the decor is nice but does not scream SOUTHWEST. We were greeted by a pleasant hostess who informed us... More

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.
