Sometimes in life all you need is a good taco spot. Look no further than Verde Taqueria in Brookhaven. The place feels of a modern neighborhood joint where you know the locals hang out. Fun and relaxed it’s a great lunch spot or perfect for an easy dinner and drinks with friends.
Verde Taqueria is located in the popular Dresden Drive area which is full of little gems of shops and dinning. With a front and back patio, Verde has you covered from all sides. Our recommendation– on a nice day enjoy the front patio with some friends, queso, and an “infused” margarita. Limited batches of tequila made with various fruits and peppers are the star of these margaritas.
The great thing we found about this place is the menu, everything seemed delicious and their spin on classic items would make your mouth water. In the mood for a few unique tacos? Go for it. Quesadillas? Yessiree! Nachos? Of course. But, don’t miss the rice bowls, which were recently added. There’s a buzz about them. Some other notables were unique sides like fried brussels and fried plantains.
We stuck with our taco favorite, the Calamari Taco. This unique and slightly spicy taco is a popular among frequent diners, filled with perfectly fried calamari. The other most popular taco is the Sweet Chili Shrimp Taco, a delicious taco with sweet and fried spicy shrimp. Additionally, we dined on the Grouper Taco, which is a light and flavorful taco! The seafood tacos were the standout ones we drooled over. But don’t forget to get a Pulled Pork Taco which is topped with fresh and crisp cole slaw. Taco ’bout delicious!
Keep an eye out for the weekly Taco Special, these are incredible special tacos that change each week. Some highlights are Korean BBQ, Sloppy Joe, and Country Fried Steak!
Dining at Verdes is easy and fun, the parking out front on the street is ample as well as the back lot. Stop over at any of the nearby restaurants or shops for a full experience of the area.
