The chips and salsa were so good. I got the fish tacos and they were also great. The peach margarita was a little too sweet, but if that's what you like, then go for it!

This is the first restaurant we visit when we arrive in Corpus every winter. They have excellent fresh foods. We love the fajitas with the shrimp, steak and sausage. The quesadillas are very good. The homemade tortillas are the best.

We always go to Acapulco's for good Mexican food when we are in Corpus Christi and this time was no different. The service was very attentive and the food was very good. I had a number 11 and my boyfriend had the fajitas. We both enjoyed the food.

Found this place on our way out of Corpus. True tex-mex with scratch sauces and salsa with homemade tortillas and chips. Five of us went and were sat immediately and the staff was very friendly. Not fancy, just good food and good service at a good price. I had the #23 Enchiladas Rancheras and was very happy with every aspect... More

First of all, the place is a dive. Plastic glasses and plates. The salsa was served in a small styrofoam cup. There was a napkin dispenser on the table and lots of used napkins strewn about the floor. The food was marginal. Fresh avocado slices were good but the margarita tasted like lime cough syrup. This is the first time... More

Why is this ranked so high? Apparently I ordered the wrong thing but I ordered enchiladas for crying out loud! The sauce tasted so gross that I had to scrape it off. Yuck!! However the service was great, the pita chips are awesome and I love that they have Mexican Cole in the big glass bottles.
