If you find yourself in Acapulco and craving BBQ give Texas Ribs a try. I have eaten there multiple times and never came away disappointed. Some places in Mexico say they offer BBQ but don't be fooled by the word "barbacoa." The BBQ at Texas Ribs is good and you will feel like you are eating BBQ from the USA.

The service was terrific. The ribs were fall-off the bone delicious, the corn on the cob was not water; perfectly firm kernels (hard to do in a restaurant); and the obligatory onion rings were crispy. The cocktail was a good pour. The only thing that keeps me from giving this restaurant 5 stars were the SCREECHING children using the indoor... More

Thanks so much for your visit. We love customer feedback, especially when it's as positive as yours. A good part of our fan base is young families with small children, and it can get a bit hectic at times. The bar --which we'll be renovating soon-- is definitely a good alternative. Hope to see you again soon. More

The service and food is excellent but very pricey. A nice treat if looking for a good steak. It has a ramp so is wheelchair friendly which is not always the case. Save this for a special night out.

We really didn't think we would find such great ribs in Mexico, but we did. We took the 5 combo ribs, and they were all great. Cooked perfectly so the meat just fell from the bones. The selection of drinks were also really tasty, I was not that fond of the BBQ Martini, but you gotta try it. Service was... More

We went to this restaurant and service was ok, but, mango margarita was poor, the food was very average, my portion of French frays was the smallest I ever had and the vegetable side was soggy and lost all taste. The Serrano tequila sauce was the savior.
