Delicious food. Awesome guacamole. Taste like home cooking. Lots of options. Only complaint is the tables were sticky. Would come again for sure.

Get Martin's Fish Taco's! Or get anything here and you should be happy! The chips and salsa is a favorite way to start the meal. It's a salsa 'bar' so you can choose from their variety from mild to super hot. It's got a wonderful cilantro flavor (the mild). My daughter always get the chicken burrito and loves it. Food...

This is my favorite counter service Mexican food anywhere. After growing up in the Southwest, I can honestly say that this is my favorite Mexican food. It is not the most exotic or creative, but it is always freshly prepared, the options are great, and it is quite fulfilling for vegans and vegetarians. Enchiladas with nopales and mole, yucca or...

Many like the burritos, I don't that much, but their enchiladas are terrific (I happen to like their enchiladas con espinaca) and those who like tacos like their tacos. Good people. It's a real taqueria and more. Beer in season, or BYOB if it's not.

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
