“This will soon become your guilty pleasure . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The food at Aqui is delicious; the innovative cuisine is a combination of Southwest, Asian, Latin American flavors with a California twist that keeps you coming back for more. Each item on the menu is very special--I especially appreciate the selection of vegetarian items. All are delicious and worthy of second servings! The restaurant prides itself in serving wholesome, natural, organic food-you'll not be disappointed. Their website is: www.aquicalmex.com

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

I had been avoiding going here since moving to Campbell. I'm from San Diego, and I usually don't trust Mexican food north of Orange County or so, but Aqui is wonderful. It's definitely not taco shop-like, but it's fresh and flavorful. My boyfriend was so annoyed that I had kept him away all this time! I'm just generally so opposed to chains, but I'll admit it- I was wrong. Aqui is great quality food at a really great price!!

“Quick service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Had not been in this new shop until the holidays with family. Ordering at the front counter and having it delivered to the table makes for speedier service than waiting for a server. Food selections were unique and everyone in the group enjoyed their meal.

“Fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We used to live in Willow Glen and loved getting food at Aqui. Fresh ingredients and food always taste great. My favorite is their crab cake -- small plate or salad -- and it always hits the spot. Their tortilla chips and salsa bar are a good plus.
