Ordering took forever and there was only one cook in the open kitchen. She was working hard and the food was very good, but it took a long time and other customers were clearly not pleased. I’ll probably go back when it’s quieter, maybe during...More

La Veracruzana operates two locations, one in Amherst and one in Northampton. Both are college towns. I eat in the Amherst location, a small and bustling place where the cashier and the cooking staff are Mexican, and they make real Mexican food, not the fake...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.
