Very sad...this was a great restaurant with a great atmosphere. We usually found ourselves here after shopping downtown, or after a short day at the beach. The chips an salsa were great and the food was always good. Hope they decide to re open.

We went to the Acapulco by chance and found a real treasure! The food was wonderful and reasonably priced, the margaritas great and the service was excellent. I would definitely return and will recommend it to others.

Acapulco was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel. We sat on the patio and had excellent service and very good food. The energy of the street was great.

I stopped in for dinner while in town for a conference and ate possibly the worst fajitas I've ever had. The hot plate holding the fajita fixings was heaped with onions, onions, onions, a couple slices of green and red bell pepper, and (tail on)...More
