WORST restaurant experience of my life... – I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food tasted like frozen food...salsa was horrible. My family could hardly choke down any of it. But even worse, the place just looked dirty and trashy. The booster chair they gave my daughter was filthy and I ended up using two baby wipes to clean it up which were both BLACK by the time I was done. The menus were sticky, chairs damaged and the bathrooms disgusting. There was also trash littering the sidewalk areas leading up to the restaurant. I felt sorry for our waitress, who was very good. But when we voiced our concerns to the owner, who was acting as "maitre'd", (and was wearing some sort of maitre'd-fake tuxedo-looking outfit that looked ridiculously out of place in the trashy environment) he was rude and simply stated that he disagrees. We will NEVER be back.
worst mexican food ever!!!!! – this was awful food, the menu was very misleading, i ordered a steak burrito, w/peppers, onions, tomoatoes, mushrooms, and recieved a bean burrito with some gross sauce, when i sent it back cuz it was not what i ordered, they were rude and said it was not there fault and the toppings were all ground into the sauce, It tasted like it came from a can, portions were small, salsa was from a jar, they were not kid friendly, I would never go back, and would never reccomend this to anyone ever,( we left all our plates w/ 1 bite taken, paid and left!
Disgusting food, horrible service – The menu is overpriced for the crap you are fed. The food is disgusting and taco bell does a much better job (which does not say much). The portions were so small, food unflavourful, and salsa was horrible. I can't believe this place is still in business. I am really shocked they are still open. Worst mexican food ever.
Owner Paul Martinez is worst Boss of 2009 – Paul Martinez, the co-owner of Alamos Verde, has been found the worst Boss of 2009 and has been sued by the EEOC.
Google worst boss of 2009 for details. The filter on the comments section wouldn't let me post the web page.
best family owned restaurant in town – We have been eating there for years. Best chicken enchildas in the country.Always greeted warming
and service is great. The person who said that the food was made by white people couldnt be more
wrong. They are a wonderful Hispanic family who make everything from scratch.
no. – It's not that you didn't try. You sort of did. You cater to families and have a seemingly devout clientele. That's what is really troubling. That there could be that many people who can eat what you provide. I won't go into thorough details; however, I will try to convey a worldly feeling I got from you. Ready? Here it goes: White people making Mexican food from really large cans. Thanks for trying.
Don't eat here.
Green chili is... – FABULOUS!!! But so is their opening salsa. Your first impression is WOW. Great parking, even though it looked full they have overflow that is well marked so don't let the small front parking sway you. Inside is relaxed and a bit noisy but very nice. Then you get to the food, which made this Arizona girl very happy. The portions are very generous for the reasonable pricing but more importantly - it is spicy but not just mixed with jalapeno to make it hot. They really know that flavorful is the best. The heat hits where it is supposed to on their hotter items a nice slow build up while enjoying the savory experiance of the dish. UMMMMM. Alamos Verde is now on my "I will return" list. Even my 'wussy' no-heat friend liked the Mondongo Dinner. What a 'hidden' treasure. And if this is a hole in the wall it is only because it is not on a "main" street and not due to the site itself, in my opinion. Thank you Martinez family and keep up the GREAT work.
Eating here for over 25+ years, it is the BEST! – It is one if not the best Mexican Restaurants in all of Colorado. It was started by family many many years ago, when they had a Boulder,CO location. The portions are huge and the best AUTHENTIC Mexican food available! The Chile Verde is the best, as are their Tamales, Huevos and everything else. We alsways get food tp take home. Many people have their Verde and their huge Tamales shipped around the U.S as we did before moving back. You cannot go wrong and it is not a a Little hole in the wall; with a large Bar/sports room, big outside patio and inside quiet inside dining.
Go for the Green Chile! – This is kind of a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that doesn't have much ambiance but the food is authentic, filling and bursting with flavor. The best item on the menu is the green chile. It has tons of flavor and can be a bit hot. The chile rellanos are also very good!
