“Acapulco Restaurant on Airline Rd”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

This is part of a chain of 4 local restaurants.The owners are related to the Taqueria Jalisco family.
I have eaten here about 1000 times.They have the best charro(ranch)beans in town,with chunks of sausage and ham and bacon.Most menu items are very good to excellent,though prices have been increasing of late.It used to be a quality cheap meal.Now it's a quality average-priced meal.
The service is variable.You may not be waited on before someone who came in after you did at times,but all in all,food wise,it's the best bang for the buck in Mexican food in Corpus Christi.They recently added home made corn tortillas,which is a plus.Highly recommended.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The food and service here were great! I ordered cheese enchiladas and my husband ordered a cheese enchilada and steak with rice and beans. The only reason I marked "Very Good" and not "Excellent" is because it was a little dirty and the booth seats had holes in them, which wasnt too pleasant to sit on. I would definitely go back though.
