I was in the mood for Mexican and my wife and I chose this place while walking around Amherst. You order in the front and wait for the food. The lady and guy behind the counter were not very friendly. This is why I gave...More

Large portions, perfectly spiced food and the most flavorful fried tortillas you've ever tasted make this one of my very favorite places to eat. Chicken enchiladas with mole, spinach enchiladas with green chili, burritos, tamales are all fantastic, but my all-time fave is the Huachinango...More

Wide selection of amazing authentic Mexican cuisine. Great selection of hot sauces and freshly made margaritas. Mexican ordering style (order and pay first). Definitely worth the visit.

It's an amazing restaurant for what it is. I think it has to be evaluated that way. No point in marking it Dow because there are no table cloths. You set your own table and the price reflects it. Two huge tostadas are five dollars....More

Good variety of authentic Mexican dishes at reasonable prices - much better than the usual fast food Mexican fare. Good selection of free salsas.

First time we had a great meal but we were not that satisfied with the second visit. Not sure if they changed over the cooks but the second time we ate here, we found the food bland (typical cheese, rice beans) and the fish tacos...More

La Veracruzana is excellent, there's no way around it. I've been here probably 100 times, can't even count. The owner and staff are fantastic. The chips and salsa bar are great while you wait for your food. The burritos are very good, if you go...More
