I never write these things but I felt guilty hitting skip. The good was EXCELLENT and reasonably priced. The location and vibe was super cool and in the heart of everything. We had the best chips and guacamole ever. Mahi Tacos, Burger and Fish and Chips were all fab as well! Best food I’ve ever had in HB!

First time here. Had lunch with a friend, tho’ it was actually breakfast. No lunch menu at 11:30 AM. I had the pollo and waffles. Four mini waffles with delicious fried chicken. My friend enjoyed her pancakes with strawberries. The only downside was the valet. Thus, the 4 stars. They really don’t need it; parking lot was just feet away from the entrance. I could have easily walked. I don’t care to valet, as I keep a lot of items in my car. Felt it was an unnecessary expense.

Best service ever.! I’ve been at the Fashion Island location, and multiple times at Anaheim. Today, we were a party of 8, our server was Lu, and he went out of his way to make our experience unique and special. Food was great too. Highly recommend 👍🏼

We have been going to Acapulco for over 10 years and always have enjoyed it. We do miss the warmer atmosphere in the evening. The lights should be dimmed a little more and the service is usually very good but needs to be improved. Just a little bit our last visit took longer than usual and we Brought friends that were looking for a new restaurant that they had not tried before and unfortunately, we waited quite a while for our food to come out which seemed unusual, but we will continue to come back as long as management improves our overall experience in the future
