My sweet wife might think I'm disqualified from reviewing this place because it's the only place I go in Amherst. I'm very happy here. The burrito is perfect, the salsas are free and there are tons, the margaritas are fine and there are loads of options for those who want other stuff. You don't NEED to go anywhere else.

This is a great Mexican restaurant. I grew up in the Southwest, and it is such a gift to have this in Northampton. I love the enchiladas, which I usually order with mole. They don't always have tamales, but they are great when they do. Lots of choices for salsa. The burritoes are huge. The atmosphere is informal. Many folks... 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 with chicken go with grilled chicken instead of shredded chicken, they are two very different...

I had the crispy fish torta on lightly toasted bolillo bread with guacamole, light mayo, Mexican cole slaw...very delicious! I can't get enough of these. You can also order the largest flan I've ever ordered there. I hate to tell you about them because people have been ordering so many of them that they run out and it takes me... More

My husband and I stopped in here for dinner one night. We were not expecting much since it's very inexpensive and there are no waitstaff. We ordered from the huge menu and waited for our name to be called. Everything was wonderful - I can't say enough good things about it. Everyone who works there is very nice and answered... More

We came to visit with some friends we hadn't seen in a while and it was wonderful! The food was all delicious. I got the beef taquitos and my husband had the chile relleno and we both enjoyed our food. There was a good amount for a fair price. It was also nice and quiet for chatting. The salsa bar... More

I love Mexican Food and this place is good but I've had better. Large space for seating, you order up front and then they call your name when it's ready. The menu is written on a board up front. I ordered two meat tacos and rice. The meat tacos were good but one would of been enough for me. They... More

The service is great it is clean and it is delicious! Prices are great and the amount of food you get is more than enough. Did I mention it is delicious?! Seriously. If you are looking for authentic Mexican for a great price La Veracruzana is the place to go. You won't regret it.
