Since the last visit, something has changed. I don't know if there has been a change in management or what but the food was marginal, service was O.K., but when we asked about the lunch menu our waitress just handed us a typed piece of paper. The temperature of the restaurant was cool and the... read more

My husband and I have gone to this restaurant several times. We always get the supreme fajitas that comes with shrimp, steak, and chicken with an extra order of tortillas. With the drinks it ends up costing about $20 and it's more then we can finish with the chips and salsa! When we first came to this restaurant we said... More

I've been going to this restaurant for 10 years now, & rarely have I been disappointed. I moved here from Southern California where I lived and worked in Latino neighborhoods, and was spoiled by a lot of good food. This is the best Middletown has to offer. The shrimp cocktail is fantastic, easily enough for two. It actually made me... More

Have been a couple times and both times the food was very good. Drinks are excellent. Waiter/waitress are friendly - just not always very fast . I would still highly recommend you try

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"
