Fabulous service!! Fabulous food!! Our waiter was so friendly, annually the whole staff was friendly and really seemed to enjoy working there. The food was really good here as well. They had some of the more of the popular traditional dishes which is nice. My 10 day hunt for good Mexican mole ended here. I was surprised that a lot... More

The fish tacos are a favorite, but there are other great choices. The Chipotle chicken salad is another favorite. They make so you can control your own heat. Had the flautas this trip and my husband ordered a chimichanga. They also have a delicious house did. Veracruz dip is yummy

We frequently return here for some of the best Mexican food you can get in Charlotte. Very large menu with a great selection of apps, huge list of combinations by number, and excellent specialties. Lots of bar and table seating, so it's great for a couple or a group. I'm a big fan of their Chile Verde and lime margaritas!

I have to admit upon visiting El Veracruz restaurant that I wasn't expecting much. North Carolina isn't a place I expect to find good Sonoran style Mexican food. I'm from the Southwest so I know what Mexican food is supposed to taste like. I was pleasantly surprised by the food here. Our server Chico was very pleasant and accommodating. The... More

We ate here because it was close to our hotel. The service was amazing - our chips and salsa dishes and our drinks never got low; they were constantly being refilled. The food was excellent and the portions were large. The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. We loved our meal and would definitely eat... More

Definitely a go-to for weekday work lunch! Ever since they moved to this location El Veracruz gets it done! There are times when things go slowly, but typically they are spot on and expedite the belly filling process. Try not to eat too many chips and spoil your appetite for the entree! Trust me, it's very hard - and they... More

Stopped for supper, we were promptly greeted and seated. Waiter got our drink order and shortly after chips and salsa were brought out. Waiter returned, took our order. Food was brought out in a timely manner, no problem with service. Food was good except the rice and the beans were not as hot as I would like but other than... More

We had lunch here recently and the service was excellent. If I remember correctly, our server's name was Juan. He was very friendly and attentive, but did not hover. The queso dip was delicious, but the food was just average. Prices were reasonable though. Since the service and prices were so good, I would return; I would just order something... More
