Almost hate to write this review for fear that one of my favorite restaurants will be "found" and trampled to death, but Veracruz Cafe serves simply the best real Mexican food in Dallas in my opinion. However, Veracruz Café is not for everyone. First, it is tiny, so don't go expecting to find tables that will accommodate more than four... More

This restaurant has been around for 15 years or more and still has excellent food. It was one of the first to offer Mexican food beyond the typical Tex-Mex. We really enjoyed it when it opened and its first few years but had not been back for quite some time due to the fact that it is about a 45... More

Bishop Arts District, always hip and cool! A great place for families, couples, or friends. We used a Groupon and it was our first time to eat at Veracruz Cafe. Great service, Miguel made sure our chips and water were filled. We had the mango margarita, the (Jarochitas) Mexican egg-roll appetizer and a meal called the El Borracho del Pueblo... More

My son and I make a special outing to Bishop Arts District to have lunch at Veracruz. The food is influenced by the ancient Indian cultures. Our steak with chicken enchilada and fried plantains was a large portion, and delicious. The chips include my favorite blue corn and the salsa was excellent. Prices are fair and you are not rushed.... More

I ate at Veracruz in Oak Cliff with my boyfriend during our recent trip to Dallas. We had a nice, leisurely lunch in this cute spot. The ambiance of the restaurant is very cool. It's vibrant and colorful and has some beautiful art decorating the walls. I had the Mole Enchilada lunch special. It came with rice and some black... More
