Tonight was my first time at Veracruz, but I was impressed! When we told our server we'd never been there he brought out complimentary guacamole and cheese dip. Mind you, I hate, I mean HATE guacamole, but their homemade guac just may have made me a believer! It was fresh, aromatic, and flavorful... read more

2nd time I've eaten here at was just as enjoyable as the first time. Service was good, even found me some tea for hot tea which wasn't even on the menu. Nice family atmosphere. Good food, good service, clean and when I'm in the area and hungry it's where i'll stop again.

My server didn't understand English very well and couldn't get my order right. Then found out from my friend, some of the servers don't know English because they hire illegals there. Won't spend my hard earned American money there to support illegals.

My husband and I eat here a couple of times a month. This is a small, locally owned restaurant. The Mexican food is authentic and very tasty. It is not just "slopped together" like some Mexican restaurants do. They have unique sauces and often have a daily special. They make their guacamole FRESH on order and it is very delicious....

Fresh and pipping hot cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. My standard order at a Mexican restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Pretty standard fare but the red salsa served with the complimentary chips was a little too mild for my tastes but one of the cooks walked by the table and asked me if I'd like to try some spicy...

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
