There you’ll find Casa Verde (Spanish for green house), home to some of the best comfort dishes that is sure to chase your midweek blues away. It’s the perfect place to let your hair down and enjoy a steak or two with your favorite local beer. The ambiance is simple and casual, reminiscent of a 60’s American Diner. The walls are decorated with old license plates and vintage memorabilia like a miniature Cadillac, paintings of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean and other knickknacks. One piece of decoration that stands out is the authentic jukebox situated right beside the bar. You can buy some tokens from the cashier and choose from the list of classic songs ranging from The Beatles to cult favorite Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart. Karaoke anyone?
A definite must-try is the bestselling Brian’s Baby back Ribs, mouthwatering grilled ribs that melt in your mouth slathered with their special barbecue sauce plus corn on the cob with butter on the side. Now that’s a meal! If you want to try the ribs and get some great seats, better get there early on weekends because the waiting list is long and they might run out of ribs. Other hot items are the Surf and Turf, steak just the way you like it and some deep fried shrimp. Looking for something hearty and filling? Order the French Onion Soup, they’ve got the best in town. Savory onions and broth topped off with a piece of crusty french bread and mozzarella. Absolutely delicious! Now that you’re done with your meal, time for some sinful dessert. Your Casa Verde experience will not be complete if you have not tried the signature Death by Chocolate. You heard it correctly, this dessert is a chocolate overload. Imagine a huge slab of rocky road ice cream coated with a hard chocolate shell and drizzled with chocolate syrup. That’s a dish that is surely to die for!
That’s Casa Verde for you. The prices are affordable and the servings are huge. Want to experience what the greenhouse effect is like? Head on down to Casa Verde the next time you’re in the mood for food.
