I ate lunch there today for the first time...it was very good and the portions are good too! The salsa is a little on the mild side...but I am sure if I would have asked...they have hotter versions.

Stopped in on our way home from vacation. We are no strangers to Mexican food and this was one of the best. Our waitress was really personable and fun. Don't miss out in the giant margaritas!

Vera Cruz is our go-to Mexican restaurant in Middletown. It's much more authentic than their main competitor, El Rancho Grande. The fajitas with shrimp, chicken, and steak are my favorite dish. You get a TON of meat--enough to share or save some for lunch the next day. Their chips and salsa are yummy. The salsa is chunky and tastes freshly... More

Took a date to this restaurant and was pleased by the experience. Ivan, our server was excellent and the food was very good as well. Although I've only been to Mexico once, I do believe that this food was traditionally made and authentic. Blanco sheese sauce was a bit salty, but all in all, very food experience!

The environment is so friendly, we felt like home. They even treat me for my birthday. Love it! I will recommend it any day of the week. My favorite dish is the "Molcajete"

The restaurant is located in a strip mall in Middletown, Ohio about 5 minute from the exit off I-75, The service here is outstanding, the owners provide personal service and the waitresses/waiters are prompt and very friendly. If you want hot salsa just let them know, they have a wonderful green salsa that has a little heat. The food is... More

Before is was "Veracruz" it was "La Raza" - that's when it was really good. Not sure if the same people still own the restaurant, but it is a local hangout for Mexicanos and Latinos. The Mexican grocery attached is great for authentic products. The restaurant itself seems to have expanded so fast that it isn't as good as it... More

I understand if your having a bad day as a server, but don't take it out on some random first time customer. They didn't even acknowledge my coupon, Saying I ordered off the lunch menu, It was 7pm the menu is not marked for... More
