We started going there after getting "turned off" by some of the tatics of the other major Mexican Resurant chain's local eatery.

The enchiladas and spicy chicken strips were just so-so. The staff was friendly and efficient. If you want really good Mexican food, look elsewhere.

The food is consistently delicious. The prices are fair. The building is better than your average privately owned restaurant in Middletown (this town as a general rule is.. well I don't want to be offensive...). The atmosphere is fantastic, it is a great staff, good music, just a nice place. They show their daily specials on Facebook and offer carryout.... More

Hoping to find a good Mexican restaurant in Middletown, we decided to try Veracruz. The chips and salsa were good...that's were it ended. The Chimichangas were soggy, the Flautas tasted like they had been fried in the same oil as fish. (So they tasted like fish) . You would think a Mexican restaurant would actually make their own Margaritas, but... More

I really liked this restaurant. It has good food and the atmosphere is fun. The servers are a little hard to undetstand sometimes

My husband and I have visited this place 3 times over the past year. The first 2 times it was excellent. However, the last visit resulted in cold, tasteless food.

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 food was not nearly as... 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
