Came here at a suggestion of a friend who lives in San Pedro. Though she suggested the quest con spinach y shrimp I wasn't up for the amalgamation, however, the chips and salsa were on point. The food was reasonably priced for the portions. The steak fajita was scrumptious. I was surprised by the presentation and the seasoned potatoes that... More

We went to the first Boat Show held at the newly refurbished Marina in LA Harbor and after 3 hours of walking around the show, realized that there are no restaurants close by. As we drove out, we found Acapulco's and decided to stop. What a treat, we sat outside and watched boats go in and out of the harbor.... More

It was Monday morning, so no rush. Service was pretty quick, but the food itself was so-so. Taste was kind of "fast food". Even the day was sunny and nice - the impression was not.

First time visiting this place and all I can say is you got to have the tableside guacamole. It is amazing and would highly recommend you try it,! I had the spicy and it really didn't seem to be that all spicy but yummy!

Visiting my parents from out of town. Food in general ok. Got a nice window booth. We needed to flag server down to get water glass refilled every time. When we ordered an extra entree to take home for my mom, we couldn't find our server so someone else took our order. Our regular server finally showed up so we... More

My husband + I enjoyed a nice dinner (fajitas were delicious), went back a couple days later for lunch with my niece + nephew. We all enjoyed our meals in the relaxed atmosphere with great views since we asked for a table near the window+--it's on the water. Service was good and prices reasonable.

Beautiful location but the food was bland and lacking to say the least. The retried beans were out of a can and the rice tasted like it was white rice with some red food coloring on it. On the harbor was great very nice but not nice enough to make up for the bad food.

I came here with a friend and as soon as we got in I could tell the food wasn't going to be good. To start the place smelled like rancid grease; my friend got a mango mojito and i got a pina colada which was made with powders (no pineapple or coconut flavor whatsoever). We both asked for fish tacos:... More

We visited on Sunday, March 13, 2016. My sister and I ordered the Fajitas Gigante to split and Chicken Tortilla Soup. The food was excellent and while the restaurant was very busy our food came quite fast. It was delicious. With the strolling mariachis and the crowd it was a little loud but well worth it. The wait staff was... More
