This is my third visit to Verde. My dining companion swears the mole' is the best in town and always gets the Pollo con mole'. I'm not a huge fan of mole' so I opted for the taco salad. It was just OK. It has a lot of flavors & textures that got weighed down when topped with the sour cream and guacamole. The elements all stood alone well individually. Black beans, tomatoes, corn, pickled onion, seasoned ground beef, fresh guacamole, sour cream, on a bed of assorted greens are nicely nestled in a crisp, tasty shell. However, together, the flavors & textures quickly lost their distinctiveness. I won't get it again. However, the evening was not a loss. The premium margarita was beautifully served and tasted divine. It came accented with a tangy, salted rim that almost made me forget it was $17.
The food is innovative and delicious. Their drinks are above average and they are always willing to make adjustments based on your particular requirements. The main reason we frequent Verde is for the service. Jackie and Jesus are our favorites. They are attentive without being overbearing.
I had a reservation at 9:00. When we walked in, the host told us they were basically closed (they close at 10) we rushed to make sure we ate and left on time. Aside from that, everything else was perfect! Food tasted great, and drinks were delicious!
Got there early and ordered a drink at the bar. Generous portions. Our bartender Alex was also our server at the table. Super friendly and efficient. Again, the food portions were extremely generous. I recommend the cilantro cream sauce covered burrito.
