We travel 1,200 mi to eat great Mexican food here. We love the quesadillas, steak, shrimp, sausage & great service.

We loved the food. The tortilla seemed homemade not store bought. The dining area is kind of crowded. We were a party of 12 and the crowded us on 3 small tables. But the food was worth it. They were quick with our order. If you love stuffed jalapeños wrapped in bacon they have it on the appetizer menu it... More

Wow. seriously great food at a fantastic price!! We came down here for a mini vacay/anniversary trip and found this place on Yelp. It was fairly close to our hotel, so decided to check it out, and man I'm glad we did! We were greeted warmly and seated quickly; I wonder if this must be a place with mostly locals,... More

While traveling, we tried this restaurant based on the reviews here. We were very happy with the dinner we had. Margaritas were just right. We had the Leone's plate and the pastor plate. Tortillas were homemade and both dinners were great tasting and authentic. We kept eating even though we were full because it tasted so good.

We've always gone to another Mexican food restaurant in Corpus Christi, but in recent months it has been "in decline." So we tried Acapulco. Good food, clean dining, friendly staff. We've found our new hangout! Prices are good, too.

We stopped for lunch in Corpus Christi and ate at Acapulco Restaurant. The staff was friendly, the tortillas were hand made and delicious. However, we ordered the Fajita Platter and were not impressed. The beef skirt steak, yes I said steak, was extremely tough. The chicken was just tidbits and the sausage tasted like Oakridge sausage. We would not go... More
