Awesome Food - the locals eat here!

Just like the title says this was a great place to eat. The place was Packed with locals so we knew we'd probably hit a good spot. We were not disappointed. Great food. The frozen margarita was especially good.

Came in for breakfast and it was amazing. Would love to try lunch and dinner. Phenomenal Mexican food. I live 12 hours away and this place is one of my favorite places in town. Can't wait to go back!

One of my favorite Mexican Food places in town. I often order breakfast tacos to go here. The lady at the main counter is always courteous and orders usually do not take very long. It does get crowded though and parking can be a challenge during peak hours.

i read the reviews and looked online before going over there. on their menu it said all different seafood food, but when we get there, they only had three choices. my husband chose this restaurant because of the seafood selection before we left, but was disappointed when there wasn't anything he liked. he ordered the enchilada platter, but we didn't...

So perhaps I've missed Mexican food while living overseas or perhaps I was tired of my diet but they have the BEST chicken enchiladas ever. I also love that they fry up flour tortillas as well for chips. Nothing more to say but give it a try!

We love this Mexican restaurant. The ingredients are always fresh. They do a perfect job of preparing the shrimp, steak and sausage. The sausage is excellent. The flour tortillas are soft, tender and fresh. One of our favorite restaurants in CC.

I was in time for a short business trip and based on the positive reviews here I wanted to try out Acapulco. I'm so glad I did- the good reviews are well deserved! Yes, the restaurant could use some updates - the quality of the food and level of service are much higher than the look of the place -... More

A very nice Mexican Food restaurant that we all enjoyed. The beef enchiladas were very good as were the tacos. The meals included homemade flour and corn tortillas. The salsa was nice and hot. Our server was not very friendly but our food was served nice and hot. Overall a good experience.
