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"

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

My family and I went to Veracruz for the first time last weekend. Everyone there was so nice. They were personable and attentive. The food was amazing. The best Mexican food I've had in the Tri-state area. We didn't pay attention to what things cost, but when we got the bill we thought it had to be missing something. It... More
