“Awesome food! Awesome service!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Stopped in on our way home from vacation. We are no strangers to Mexican food and this was one of the best. Our waitress was really personable and fun. Don't miss out in the giant margaritas!

“Big Portions, Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Vera Cruz is our go-to Mexican restaurant in Middletown. It's much more authentic than their main competitor, El Rancho Grande. The fajitas with shrimp, chicken, and steak are my favorite dish. You get a TON of meat--enough to share or save some for lunch the next day. Their chips and salsa are yummy. The salsa is chunky and tastes freshly made. I also recommend to add the delicious white cheese sauce for your chips. Improvements could be made to the margaritas (they taste artificially flavored) and the beans and rice aren't super flavorful. But the entrées and chips/salsa make up for these less than stellar items. I like that they offer take out and $5 lunch specials.

“Si is the answer to the question of should you go here!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Took a date to this restaurant and was pleased by the experience.

Ivan, our server was excellent and the food was very good as well. Although I've only been to Mexico once, I do believe that this food was traditionally made and authentic. Blanco sheese sauce was a bit salty, but all in all, very food experience!

“Best Family Restaurant in town”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

The environment is so friendly, we felt like home. They even treat me for my birthday. Love it! I will recommend it any day of the week. My favorite dish is the "Molcajete"

“Best Mexican restaurant in Cincy-Dayton area!”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

The restaurant is located in a strip mall in Middletown, Ohio about 5 minute from the exit off I-75,
The service here is outstanding, the owners provide personal service and the waitresses/waiters are prompt and very friendly.
If you want hot salsa just let them know, they have a wonderful green salsa that has a little heat.
The food is amazing, no other restaurant in the area is even close to the quality and flavor. If you like spicy dishes the pollo a la diabla is a must try, the carnitas michocanas is also an excellent dish. If you like tacos and burrito, you won't be disappointed. They are much better than the other local Mexican restaurants in the area.
The also have a full bar and their margaritas are superb.
The deserts are also excellent, the flan is homemade and it is flantastic!
This is the best restaurant in Middletown,
