Honestly you can’t go wrong at Aqui. The only down side is that is so popular that on weekends it’s hard to find a table. But pretty much anything you pick from their menu is bound to be delicious. Their ingredients are always fresh &...More

The staff here are generally nice. The place was fairly clean and the food tasted great. This time around, we got the Blackened Salmon and the Cuban Pork Enchilada. Now, I just want to make it known that my experiences here have been pretty positive...More

Great place to go for a meal and drink. Orders are taken at the counter and you find your own seat. Drinks are ordered at either the restaurant side or the bar. The most popular drinks at Aqui are their swirls but beware, they are...More

If looking for a casual restaurant, reasonably priced, where you can come alone, or with a big group, Aqui's provides great food, with seemingly fresh ingredients, and quick service.

Delicious. Great vegetarian options, humanely sourced meats. My favorite is the Cotija taquitos plate.

Very noisy inside and out. Strong drinks. Salmon dish under $10--hard to find & good for the price, but served with way too much mashed sweet potato. Liked patio but glad to leave 'cuz noise level was so bad.

Casual dining with a full bar and TV's. You order from cashier and pick up your food, so tipping is minimal. Daily Chef's Specials are almost always excellent. Don't miss the flourless chocolate cake, it will keep in the fridge for 2 days, no problem....More
