Swung by over spring break. Everyone had a real solid meal. The tamales were extremely fresh and the chips included flour and corn. Definitely a big upgrade from a chain.

We went to the one on Airline. It is a down home restaurant, not fancy, but a lot of locals. They make their own chips and tortillas and the entrees are excellent and the prices very reasonable. I don't think anything was over $10.

I have eaten at both of the Acapulco Restaurants in Corpus Christi, the one on Airline and the one on Weber and Gollihar. They are great! My husband and I go to the one on Weber and Gollihar and order the flour tacos or the plate of Carne Asada. They prepare the meat so well, so tender and tasty. We... More

I have had Mexicine cuisine all over the US, and by far this is the best outside of So. Calif.! The prices are excellent, the food is always tasteful and appealing to the eye. One look at the menu and you will be amazed at the value you get for the prices! Excellent salsa and fresh homemade style chips are... More

This place is consistently good. Always hot and fresh and very good service. They're always busy in a town with a million taquerias so that should tell you something.

While living in Corpus Acapulco was always out go-to breakfast restaurant for migas. Everything I've tried from their menu has been great. Gets pretty crowded on the weekends so be prepared.
