I did return once with a Spanish conversation group from my language school, and the food was below average. I suspect New Englanders eat here because they've never had good Mexican or New Mexican food. I guess it's "authentic" -- they used to have papusas, a thick corn "tortilla" filled with cheese, and those were good, as papusas go.

I've had enough bad food, seen enough unclean bathrooms, and had enough orders misunderstood that I'll return here only if friends insist -- in fact, whenever anyone suggests the place, I suggest 5 other cafe choices, and inevitably we end up dining elsewhere.

The food was delicious.. There was a great selection of different salsas.. The decorations were really cool.. Most importantly you could tell the food was made authentically and with love.. Better than Taco Bell.. Moes.. Chipotle.. Authentic Mexican cuisine at its finest...

The best we have found since moving to New England from the West Coast. Excellent chicken tamales, beans and dang good taquitos (I know them as flautas) and a great salsa bar to pick your fav salsa or try a new flavour. With food this tasty it doesn't matter you order from the counter and pickup when it is ready. If you like Mexican, this is a must try.

La Veracruzana is a warm, friendly, and affordable place for tasty salsa, tamales, calabacitas and other specialties. It's located right on Main Street in Northampton, and never disappoints.

Nothing fancy. Just good, authentic, Mexican food. You can even get Imported Mexican
Coca Cola, made with real sugar! Great prices. Fish tacos were very tasty.
