Been coming here for quite a few years...mainly when the current owner has had it. First off, the fries are old-school awesome. Blanched then fried to order--best fries in the Verde Valley! Second, the salsa bar is a solid setup. I really enjoy the grilled jalapenos...often have just fries and salsa bar fixin's. Their plain red salsa is one of... More

Rolled into this market based off of reviews we read online. The kids had huge fresh homemade burgers. Husband had carne asada torte and I had the chicken torte. Oh my was it delicious! Owner and staff were extremely helpful and friendly! Highly recommended!

Verde Lea is our hometown favorite. The appearance may scare some off, but everyone we've brought to Verde Lea from out of town always want to come back here when they visit! The torta and tacos Carmelo's are definitely a favorite for this family! The owner is wonderful and super friendly too.

The Verde Lea is a local favorite. Their torta's are the amazing, however it does not top the 1/2 lb crown burger. They have something for every taste here.

Remember the last time you ate at a fast food chain? You probably had an okay experience to say the least. Somehow, memories turn from negative to positive typically within a month. Your memories showcase cheap salty fried food and you break down for another fast food visit only to be disappointed....again. The chicken torta is the perfect example of... More

Had the BLT with avocado. It was so good. Everyone's lunch was good. Reasonably priced and great service. Would definitely go back.

I recently moved to this area and heard Verde Lea was very good, so I went there in the afternoon. I was a little turned off by the 25 or so pre-made sandwiches on display, as I had thought everything was prepared to order. But apparently not everything. Wanting something made fresh, I ordered a cheese steak. The two men... More

This market is really a to go counter and convenience store. You had a choice between Mexican and American food. I had a burrito in their homemade tortilla delicious. I am a vegetarian and the cook made it special for me. The reason I didn't give them a high score is my husband was not happy with his tacos, he... More

We wanted to try something different while we were Christmas shopping in Cottonwood. We looked up and found this place. We never would have gone there without reading the reviews. We loved the Tortas. We ordered a beef one first and split it and it was so good, we ordered a chicken one and a bag of chips and pico... More

After reading all the positive reviews, I assumed this place would be something special. The "Oriental" chicken salad was topped with dry, cold, several days-old chicken pieces. Could chip a tooth biting into those puppies. Server replaced my portion with fresh-grilled chicken. My companion's roast beef sandwich was rare, moist and flavorful--albeit a bit small for the price. Not sure... More
