“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

You have to try the guacamole thry make at your table! Plus, my husband eats carnitas everywhere we go and he said these are the best!
When we first walked in on a Sunday afternoon it was empty and we almost walked out. Glad we stayed! It was soooo delish!

“Good for Greenville, but Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Having lived in Texas and eaten at hundreds(maybe even thousands) of Mexican restaurants in the US and Mexico, Greenville is not a Mecca for this cuisine. It seems that there is always something that is not quite right. Sangria and Margarita were ok, Guacamole was fine. Salsa had more flavor that typical Greenville restaurants. My wife is an enchilada fan, she thought they were pretty good. My tacos de carne asada were ok, not great, not bad. Prices and service were fine. Atmosphere fine. There are many worse Mexican restaurants in Greenville.

“Not bad, but much better places in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Extremely friendly staff and management. Went on a slow night. We were the last ones in the place to be served, but management kept coming out and apologizing, gave us a free appetizer.
The food was ok once it got there, not bad just nothing to rave about. Salsa was just liquid, queso dip tasted strange. The worst thing going for this place is that there are some really good Mexican places in town.

“Wing'in It At Acapulco's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Acapulco atmosphere and decor--authentic Mexican food. Imagine my delight when I asked about Sopapillas for dessert, not on the menu, but they had a great serving with choc syrup and whipped cream. Perfect way to end my Gold Wing adventure to Greenville SC to have some fun at the GWRRA Rally!

“First Time Here!!! Awesome!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

After my fiancé and I had a long rainy day driving for work we wanted to go some place relaxing and good. We were staying in town for the night and couldn't find much in Greenville other than chain restaurants and that wasn't sparking our interest. However, our GPS led us to this wonderful restaurant. It was very slow but then again we dined about an hour before closing. The server who was also the bartender was very nice and energetic, he put a smile on our face after a long day! My fiancé got a combo dish that was fantastic! I got chicken (can't exactly remember the name) topped with grilled onions, pineapple, mushrooms, and cheese. It was the best dish I have had in a Mexican restaurant EVER!!! We will definitely visit again when we are passing through town!!
