“Best Resturant in St. Augustine.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

I've been to St. Augustine every year since I was one, and each year we eat at Acapulco. It is an amazing restaurant. Everything on the menu is delicious! Definitely our favorite restaurant in St. Augustine. You can't beat the views of the ocean and the Castillo.

“Love”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

I would just like to say this restaurant has all homemade, authentic Mexican food. Everything is made fresh daily, and well prepared with much heart! All salsas are made from chiles and slow cooked daily. Meat is marinated, and cooked by order. Chihuahua cheese, and queso fresco... Very popular cheeses are used which are very authentic Mexican cheese! Servers are always prompt and friendly, and willing to suggest most popular authentic plates, also as more "gringo" choices for guest who choose to have a less spicy taste.

“Pretty Horrible”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Looks very inviting from the outside--but unfortunately the staff and the location of this place is pretty much the only thing it has going for it. The food tastes like it was made in/by "Chef Mic" (the microwave)--something that you can get from the cheap frozen section of your neighborhood supermarket. Sauces are obviously canned, cheeses are clearly the nasty sliced sandwich cheese (pretty gross), and there was NO authentic Mexican food to be had anywhere in this establishment.

“Horrible Food, Horrible Bartender”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Went to this place with some friends for an enjoyable evening. The food was the worst. It was cold in the middle and tasteless. Worse than the food was the bartender! He didn't want to get the frozen margarita machine dirty so he told the server it was broken. When we said something to the manager/owner, the manager miraculously got it working and brought us frozen drinks, which was good because the margaritas on the rocks that the bartender made were so horrible they were undrinkable. Then, at 10:00 on a Saturday night, the place turns into a disco for teens! No joke! No more food, drinks, and definitely no dessert. Just loud music, disco lights and teens! I know that St. Augustine is somewhat touristy, which in general means poorer quality restaurants, but this place is really, really bad.
