Walked in and ordered for carry out in February 2017. The wait for the food was only 10 minutes! Very nice hostesses and at least the lobby of the restaurant was very clean. Very cool décor. Took the food over to the Drury Inn to eat and it was delicious. Definitely try the supreme nachos (chicken/steak with all the veggies!)... More

Often we check trip advisor reviews when traveling as an aid to fine dining. Often they guide us to the city's best. Today they got it wrong. Cafe Acupulco provided creamy refried beans, fluffy Spanish rice, and that wonderful fallapart masa in fresh beef tamales. Did I mention limey frozen margaritas? Attentive but unobtrusive service? A bunch of low reviewers... More

PB is blessed with Tex Mex places, but this is usually our goto. Happy hour from 4 to 7 Monday thru Thursday for 2 for 1 Margaritas is my favorite part, and my wife thinks their salsa is the best in town. Good food, friendly staff, good service.

The waiter argued with me about something I used to get on a regular basis. They would no longer let me get a half order of beans and a half order of rice for $1 extra instead of a whole order of one. The waiter was just rude. they used to have the best salsa but then they changed the... More

I can't really think of any signature dishes here, but we always leave satisified. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is pretty clean

We love Mexican food but this place was disappointing. The chips and salsa were good and the cheese sauce on the chimichanga was good but the chicken in the chimi was tough and overcooked. Other meals that our party ordered were just okay. The waiter never checked to see how we were doing or refill our drinks. We won't return.
