We used to live in Long Beach and this was and still is our favorite place for mexican food. Not too pricey, good food and drinks. You can sit by the water and watch the boats. Love it.

We visited the restaurant on April 12, 2017 for dinner. The menu that we were presented did not in anyway resemble the menu that is on the website, except for the flan. Our server delivered a dish to the lady in the family that she did not order. He then argued with the lady about what she had ordered. He... More

Typical overpriced imitation Mexican Food.. As with most of these type of spots the drinks are way overpriced, and the food was edible but for these prices you should at least get fresh beans instead of canned... It was getting late and nothing else was open...

45 people upstairs, staff not prepared, manager just chatting with the ladies, no help. $2,00 margaritas - where is the alcohol? I guess we have to spend an extra $5 for a shot of tequila. Happy hour food, so,so, I had the fish and chips - not recommended. But the place has a nice harbor view and if you order... More

Elizabet was our server an she was helpful and attentive. We ordered the $2.00 Margaritas and Gigante Fajita that is enough for 2 . The Steak was particularly good this time...very tender. The location is walking distance to where we live and we enjoy the walk by the water. The chips are always warm and the Salsa is good. The... More

I just had lunch here and ordered the Spinach Enchiladas and they were very good. The hot chips that come to the table are plentiful and addicting. My friend had the Chicken Fajitas and he was happy as well. The place is great for large groups as it is inexpensive.

The food was very good and nice portions served. We had the shrimp fajitas (yummy). There was nice outside seating and fun to watch the kayaks and small boats go by. We would visit again.

I ordered a dish that was supposed to be Tilapia. The fish that was presented to me was not Tilapia - it was a large filet of a pink fish that was most likely a halibut filet. When I pointed this out the the waiter, the cook came out to insist it was tilapia and then referred me to the... More

Stopped for lunch on our coastal ride of the PCH. Very good food, friendly staff, and great service. Very reasonable for the quality of food. Chips and salsa fresh and flavorful. Food was served hot and plentiful. Would definitely stop again if ever in the area. Plenty of room inside and looked like amazing views in the outdoor seating area.

Acapulco is an example of lazy, indifferent cuisine. They have a prime location on the water and could be a great place, but they don't care enough to put energy into the food. I had the Chicken Enchiladas and Chile Relleno, the worst I've ever had. The enchilada was dry with no discernible sauce or cheese, just tasteless. The relleno... More
