“This place is simply fantastic!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Love this place, Authentic ingredients, great staff, warm smiles. Just all around fantastic atmosphere. The food is made to order on a "subway style" line and its just delicious! Worth checking out! I proudly sport two verve burrito bumper stickers on my Dodge Neon. :D

“Suggested by locals”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I don't typically seek out this type of food, but it suited our needs and came highly recommended. It was set up much like Chipotle. The staff here was very friendly, helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs.
The food was fresh and very well put together. I was surprised they did not have their own chips! They did have delicious options for salsa.

“Buy 9 Get 1 Free "Way too Popular", So They're CANCELLING IT??”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Verve in Bangor was pretty great when they opened. I've ordered takeout from them every couple of weeks since, but lately I've noticed that their burritos have undergone shrinkage in weight, loss of flavor (I'm assuming because of cheaper ingredients), a proportional increase in the amount of beans you get, combined with a decrease in the amount of meat. Lately it seems like there's barely ANY meat in Verve's burritos. What clinched my decision not to patronize them anymore, starting today, was an employee telling me that "Buy 9, get the 10th free" punch-cards were no longer being issued because the special was becoming "way too popular". To me, that's dumb business and a slap in the face to their customers....as well as a stealth price Increase of 11% per burrito. Well, Verve, you won't have to worry about this customer "abusing" your discount anymore. There's now a food truck near KMart which I've heard is far better and a better value, as well as a new Chipotle opening here. Blaming customers for price increases is NEVER a good idea, and will surely drive customers (like me) well away.
