Our group of six adults and two small children ate lunch here in April 2017. The restaurant was completely full. Recommend reservations. The service was friendly and my iced tea was never empty. Everything here was delicious. I especially liked the salsa, shrimp cocktail, marinated chicken fajitas, chicken salad and tortillas.

After reading some of the good reviews, we decided to go to Acapulco's since my 13 year old was craving Mexican food. I was there with my husband and my two sons ages 13 and 2. We arrived about 10:45 am. It wasn't busy at all. When we arrived, we were seated right away although the woman who seated us... More

Excellent flavors, very good service. Salsa and guacamole excellent. Beef fajitas and pork chimichanga, I would definitely get again. I am generally not a bean person(never refried) but I really enjoyed theirs (the whole bean), lots of bacon and meat. The only drawback I have was the cleanliness of the bathroom.

This play was rated really high in Travelocity so we decided to try it. The food was ok--definitely not the best Mexican food we've had, speaking taqueria to taqueria. My husband had chicken fajitas and said they were pretty good. I have the shrimp tacos, pretty bland overall. The good news is they have a spicy green sauce to drown... More

This is authentic Mexican food. I had the chiliquiles for breakfast and it was great! Homemade tortillas flour and corn. All the food is priced cheap for the amount of food that is served. Well worth the price! Place is kept clean and the service was great although the waitress didn't speak complete English to me. She was awesome!

Acapulco Restaurant is a great choice for simple, good food. The choices were so varied. I had the beef fajitas. The tortillas were obviously freshly made and my fillings were plentiful and delicious. Our server was helpful and attentive. The prices were more than reasonable. One warning; my granddaughter had a "special salad" on her plate. She doesn't eat tomatoes... More

If you're looking for authentic mexican food that taste really great, this is the place. My wife, along with my grandchildren, and I visit twice a week and the staff quickly accommodates our family. They are friendly and professional. Mexican food at its BEST!

We stopped in for lunch and were very pleased with what we had. We had the supreme nachos and margaritas. Very good nachos and the margaritas were very good also. Even though it was very busy, the service was great. We will be going back when we are in the area.

Chuy's had a really long wait so we came here instead. They have a nice varied menu, with tex-mex and mexican fare. We ordered drinks everyone was happy with their margaritas, acapulco, beers, and michelada. Good spicy salsa, the carne asada was delicious, tacos were traditional with cilantro and onions. Very tasty.

I was in Corpus Christi for a short trip without much free time. Read about this restaurant as a "must visit" and I was NOT disappointed! Comfortable, unpretentious and delicious Tex-Mex food. It doesn't get better!
