This place is huge. I don't know if they ever fill it up. I've been here a couple of times and it has good food, service and is clean. TVs are in the bar area featuring sporting events. Typical tex-mex food and alcoholic beverages.

Last night our party of 30 enjoyed 3°of delicious chips,hot sauce, food and drinks by attentive ,sweet waitresses. Bartender makes delicious drinks; doesn't skimp on the alcohol. Amazing service. In fact, my husband and I are going back tonight! And I'll probably order the same thing. It was that good.

Greasy chips and bland salsa. Chicken fajitas tasted like grilled chicken tossed with some peppers and onions and served on a fajita tray. Came out barely warm. Tortillas were hard and fell apart when folded. Beer was good. Our waitress was obviously new and didn't know the menu. Perhaps not her best day. Very inefficient but imagine that will improve...

Tonight I had fajita beef nachos and D had Barbacoa plate. Both excellent and plenty of food. Great flavor in both and the meat was perfect. Took the huge Chunk of cheesecake home (hard decision between the chocolate cake). We go at least once a month and NEVER had a bad meal; ever. All different servers but they are all... More

Located across the street from the Marriott, this large established (dated interior design) serves delicious shrimp meals. The complimentary salsa and chips are excellent. The Acapulco Chimichanga (shrimp) is served with refried beans and rice. It's huge and can be shared. The Grilled Shrimp Salad includes about twelve medium size shrimp served in a large spinach shell. The Tacos el... More

We ate here while staying at the hotel across the street, so because it was convenient on a cool rainy night. There were many customers, which made us think the food was good. The service was friendly. The menu was large. We had good food, though the simpler fare seemed better. Tamales are their specialty, but I have had much... More

Arrived in Amarillo hungry and the hotel staff recommended Acapulco for Tex-Mex food. It is a fun environment to be in- evoking a plaza with a fountain and bright open space. The service was speedy- this was a late lunch so there were only a few people there. I happen to like ceviche and ordered it as a tostada. While... More
