We came here on a Friday night and the place was packed! because of reading reviews on Trip Advisor I knew to find a table while the others in our party ordered food. The food was very good. The margaritas were excellent and we enjoyed our meals. It is very loud and there are a number of families with small... More

The tomatillo soup was nice but a bit salty. The mango tofu was fresh and filling. I ordered the bowl and had it for lunch the next day. The California enchilada with the polenta was really hot and delicious. My dad enjoyed the salmon dish and the chicken was also good. Overall a healthy California fresh twist on Mexican food....

All the locations are very busy, especially gets crowded on Fridays, it is... More

This is our regular Cal-Mex place. Over the last few years we have visited often and every time the food is good. Margaritas are awesome and prices reasonable (since it is self service they have managed to keep them down). Highly recommended.

I don't know what it is about my family but when we eat out we seem to have about 4 restaurants we go to. Aqui is one of them. We prefer the restaurant in Campbell, but have been to all of them. Aero offers tasty Cal-Mex cuisine that is both affordable and delicious. Every day they have new specials which... More

Excellent food.... The issue is getting seat on weekends. Great Margarita's, and chips. Fresh ingredients. Fresh and tasty! It's self serve so be prepared to get your own drinks and silverware.

Aqui seems to be re-branding itself. They have taken the Cal-Mex off of the signs and now have Industrial Strength. Natural, Wild and Organic. The industrial strength refers to their margarita, which has vodka in it. They have always had an inventive, eclectic menu. I have consistently enjoyed the dishes I have chosen. Food is ordered at the counter, and... More

Loved this little Mexican style restaurant, it was the quick casual type of place where you order up front and pick it up from the service station, but in a more upscale setting. The food my friend and I ordered was great! There is a very large selection there to choose from. We both got alcohol there, my friend a... More

We often go to Aqui for a casual meal, either lunch or dinner. The food is creative Tex-Mex, tasty and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and get a buzzer that lights up when the food is ready. There is a nice outdoor eating area as well as three rooms of tables inside. Aqui is good for couples, friends,...
