I have enjoyed drinks with friends here off and on for a couple years. The margaritas are some of the best in Brooklyn and the bartenders are always friendly and fun. The owner however seems to have nothing better to do than sit there and try to do a job she is obviously not fit for: running a restaurant. She... More

My Son and I went in for an early dinner. Started with a Margarita and the Bacon Guacamole. The flavors blended so well that I filled up on it before my dinner came. I ordered something I have never tried before. I had the Chorizo and Potato Tacos. It came with beans and rice. The refried beans and rice were... More

Ordered a plate of chorizo nachos. And easily one of the worst I have had. If you are touting yourself as a Mexican special place, you can't go wrong on a plate of Nachos. They have a couple of Mexican special draft beers as well but again nothing to write home about.

Great service but terrible food. It was just no flavor. Asked for chimichuri sauce and they didn't have it. The chef made it for us apparently but it was not good. Wouldn't go back but rather go down the street to dos taros.

Best mexican food I have ever had! Def try shrimp nachos as an appetizer- my no 1. I also reccomend: White Fish Ceviche, shrimp sinaloa and chicken burrito. Yummy!

Used to go every month 15 years ago. It closed for personal reasons. Reopened not the same. The guac and most of the meals are over cilantroed and not as tasty.

Since we were staying on Bedford and have a thing for mexican food we had to try Vera Cruz. Unfortunately we did this before checking the internet for reviews. What a big mistake to think you get true mexican food here. The food was colourless. It was poorly spiced, which made everything taste the same. This is hard because beans... More

I've been to Veracruz 2-3 years ago, and I really liked it. So this time, I wanted to bring a few friends from abroad to this place as we were having a few drinks in the neighbourhood. They'll never forgive me!! We sat in the garden, and we saw rats running around! Absolutely disgusting and the thought of it makes... More

Good value Maxican with good atmosphere kind of sums up this place for me. Ive stayed with my family for 2 weeks in Williamsburg and we have dined well almost every night. As we did here. The burritos were tasty but I wont rave about them back home. It was also kid friendly as all the places in Williamsburg and... More

Above average food, drinks are normal, the wait staff looks as if they hate their lives but then again I would also. They open the back during the summer for outdoor dining. Gives the place a good look. Nice atmosphere for semi quiet dining. Good place to check out if you're in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. You will leave pleased
