We lucked out by coming at just the right time, as we didn't have a prior reservation. We were able to be seated right away though. We enjoyed some margaritas as well as some chips and salsa while we waited on our food. It definitely has the feel and decor of a Tex-Mex restaurant in the states. They have your... More

Been to Acapulco regularly for the fact that food was great and vegan options available. When I saw the new menu with separate vegan section on the menu I couldnt get more excited to go there again. Unfortunatelly the fajitas filling was inedible. Turns out the chef used weird spices like cinnamon that made the food taste Indian. What a... More

I have tried both the Newtownards road shop and the Cathedral Quarter one and both make an excellent Burrito full of flavour. Choose from pulled pork, chicken, chilli or a vege chilli with rice, pinto peans etc A regular haunt for a lunchtime snack to keep me going through the Afternoon. Highly recommended.

Love this place! Was delighted to see they had opened a takeaway in the cathedral quarter close to my work. The burritos are something else! Always taste fresh and well filled. The staff are so friendly also. Way better than any other Mexican or burrito place.

Constantly am in Acapulco - staff are lovely and very helpful when suggesting drinks etc. Food has always been great - even the take away!! The pulled pork chimichangas and the flutas (think that's what they're called!!) as great - great as well that they deliver and are opening more locations! Hope they have the same success!

Have been to Acapulco many times before and love the menu. This time the new chef has a number of specials and we went for a selection of these as we love fish. Mains were fish tacos and a mixed spicy paella. Super fresh fish and herbs. Will def have again. Staff great.
