Acapulco Restaurant is a great choice for simple, good food. The choices were so varied. I had the beef fajitas. The tortillas were obviously freshly made and my fillings were plentiful and delicious. Our server was helpful and attentive. The prices were more than reasonable. One warning; my granddaughter had a "special salad" on her plate. She doesn't eat tomatoes... More

If you're looking for authentic mexican food that taste really great, this is the place. My wife, along with my grandchildren, and I visit twice a week and the staff quickly accommodates our family. They are friendly and professional. Mexican food at its BEST!

We stopped in for lunch and were very pleased with what we had. We had the supreme nachos and margaritas. Very good nachos and the margaritas were very good also. Even though it was very busy, the service was great. We will be going back when we are in the area.

Chuy's had a really long wait so we came here instead. They have a nice varied menu, with tex-mex and mexican fare. We ordered drinks everyone was happy with their margaritas, acapulco, beers, and michelada. Good spicy salsa, the carne asada was delicious, tacos were traditional with cilantro and onions. Very tasty.

I was in Corpus Christi for a short trip without much free time. Read about this restaurant as a "must visit" and I was NOT disappointed! Comfortable, unpretentious and delicious Tex-Mex food. It doesn't get better!

We loved the food. The tortilla seemed homemade not store bought. The dining area is kind of crowded. We were a party of 12 and the crowded us on 3 small tables. But the food was worth it. They were quick with our order. If you love stuffed jalapeños wrapped in bacon they have it on the appetizer menu it... More
