We had been hearing good things about this place but hadn't managed a visit yet. Well today was the day and we were very happy with our choices! My husband had the BBQ burger which was loaded with stuff and included a slightly still pink...burger which he loves. I had the carne asada quesadilla which was huge and buttery, yum! Next time will be sooner than later and we can't wait to explore the menu more!More

Have been here many, many times over the years, Bill and all of his staff are super friendly, and the tortas and fries can't be beat. I like both the beef and pork (carnitas) tortas, and the fries remind me of those on the boardwalk...back in Ocean City, Md. So don't pay any attention to the look of the place (c-market, basically), just try it and you will be hooked.More

Tried this eclectic market deli on recommended by staff at our hotel...when asked where can we get good Mexican he responded good or fancy...Good we said. And we were not disappointed! Don't be put off by exterior appearance...food awesome, very friendly helpful staff!!!

It’s a dive and it’s very good. The torta lives up to its reputation. Do not expect anything fancy like downtown Cottonwood. The number of locals eating here should tell you everything you need to know.

Outstanding little dive for food. The Torta is out of this world. Great carne asada but it’s the bread that makes it. We ordered two to go to eat on our plane ride home. Really good horchata and other items also. The owner is fun...with personality to spare. We will stop back every time we make it to AZ. No doubt about it.More

Assume that New York’s best deli decided to go on a Mexican vacation. It learned dozens of new recipes and came back changed. That’s what you experience at Verde Lea Market. The Reuben is top notch, but dive in with the Torta, a steak sandwich...that includes avocado, peppers and, yes, refried beans. You’ll never think about a delicatessen in the same way. You realize a deli can be so much more. The Verde Lea is that deli.More

Great hard working folks here! Good food, reasonable prices! The torta is the best around! Plenty of room to eat inside or take to go

This deli has a little of everything to offer in food choices. Subs, burgers, hot dogs, fry bread and Mexican are just a few of the choices. Read the reviews!

If you are looking for a wonderful Torta sandwich, don’t look any further than Verde Lea Deli in Cottonwood, Arizona. These Tortas are delicious and come with all the fixings. This small little deli may be overlooked as you are driving through Cottonwood because it...isn’t in the heart of the tourist eating places but don’t miss this one. It is a favorite among the locals and tourists need to try this little spot!More

Yes, but not like a restaurant. It's about 6 or 8 little picnic tables in the middle of a small grocery store.
