I have been eating here for 20 years and the owner hasn't said hello one time. Despite his rudeness the bone in Chili Verde keeps me coming back. Where the owner is rude his wife is a pleasure.

I normally prefer chile colorado (red chile); however, the chile verde sauce was even better. This is their signature dish and a small bowl of it was served to us with our meal. The salsa was not chunky and I prefer salsa this way when...More

The food is authentic Mexican. The staff were great. We had a question about a dish, they brought us a sample to try before ordering. Where does that happen, well at this place. It is historic, or its in the oldest part of town. You...More
