The Margaritas were strong, but really really good!!!! Definitely made for a remarkable and memorable evening with some friends. The food was pretty good as well.

We came specifically for the margaritas. They even have an Horchata Rita, which was fantastic. I had the Midori -rita. Food was good, but as always the drinks win hands down.

So many problems here. First let me just say it was Cinco de Mayo day and I know they were going to be busy but I still didn't imagine it was this bad. There is no system at the door, you give them your name and and how many are in your party, but you have to remain close by... More

When in the Austin area we have eaten at Baby Acapulco many times. The food is delicious, with authentic Mexican flavor. The atmosphere is very casual, service is always good. If you like Mexican food Baby A's is a good place to eat and have delicious frozen margaritas.

I was amazed how run down this place had become over the years, compared to what it was in the late 90s. But, a lot can change in 20 years, right? This place clearly needs some updating and routine maintenance if it expects to draw repeat customers. If we had not taken a taxi there, I probably would have left... More

The fish tacos I ordered were good, but not great. I ordered grilled talipia, not fried, with corn tortillas. They had so much inside that it was hard to pick them up: red cabbage, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and onion. But, no sauce. The Mango Salsa, served on the side was too sweet for me. Without it, the tacos were a... More

Menu says you can only have two of the purple Margaritas, we had 4 each. Hammer time..... Food was way better than any Mexican I can get in Atlanta. Price was fine, server was great.
