Over a year ago I visited Verde for the first time and I was
absolutely blown away. I've visited several times since then, and have never been disappointed.
Now, just to get things out in the open, Verde is not just a Mexican restaurant. A sister restaurant of the spectacular Prickly Pear in Mooresville, Verde's website describes it as "Mexican and Latin Fusion." While this is accurate, it doesn't quite do the food justice.
Their menu has a wide variety of Latin flavors, and the offerings have influences that range from Cuban to Brazilian to Ecuadorian. Yes, they have Mexican food (and it's excellent), but in some ways, it's almost seems like an afterthought as the menu spans a wide variety of differing Latin cuisines.
With that said, my wife and I were seriously craving some steak fajitas the other day, so we packed-up our toddler (and all of her travel gear) and drove 10 minutes to Verde.
