Let's get one thing clear. La Veracruzana is not a fancy restaurant, and it is not in California or the Southwest. It is mostly self-service, and the decor is functional. But it is one of the best deals in the area and very tasty for New England Mexican Food. Because they have lots of gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options, it's a good place to go with people who have food restrictions. Keep eating there and the owners will begin to know your preferences. It's definitely one of my favorite quick eats in the Northampton area.
