Everything was perfect except that cheese was in the stacked enchiladas when we asked for no cheese. Still delicious, though!

Our lunch was a farewell occasion for a friend and it was perfect for us. We loved everything we ordered--lunch-size selections of the most delicious tacos in Columbus and the lunch-size fajita. My husband and I go to this location nearly once a week for our Mexican dinner out and love their House Margaritas. For the lunch, however, none had alcohol since we were too timid to do so and drive!! The waiter was very attentive, too!

The food is amazing! Since we moved 5 years ago from town, we continue to make this drive every once in a while because they are hands down the best Mexican restaurant we know! And, Martina, who always waits on us is awesome! So friendly! She is like family!

Everything was perfect on 1st day of return. Only suggestion is to return to real dishware and silverware. Do esn't your diswasher sterilize dishes? Plastic is costly and not that sturdy. Just a suggestion.

Even though they were short staffed, like everyone right now, sadly, they did get to us in a timely manner, and the food was excellent. Everyone was super nice, and we’ll definitely be back.

We love Chile Verde! We have been going there for years. The food and staff are both terrific! Our only comment otherwise is that we were instructed to wait for a text confirming our table was ready and we never received one. We waited and finally went in 15 minutes after our reservation time and they were waiting for us. Perhaps this policy just needs updating. Thanks!

Chili Verde has always rated excellent in our eyes, in every category. Our experience this time was less than excellent ONLY because the restaurant had to follow the stringent guidelines resulting from Covid-19 virus. It was so sad to see that restaurant with so few tables...we missed the happy crowds and lively atmosphere that were always part of their ambiance prior to Covid-19.

We had a party of 10 teachers that met at Chile Verde for lunch between professional development meetings. We had an excellent experience with efficient, friendly, and professional service from our server and other staff. The food came out quickly and it was all delicious. We were in and out in about 45 minutes and appreciated the great service. We will definitely be back!
