Chips and salsa were delicious. It was spiced just right. I got fajitas and although they didnt come out steaming smoke like pappasitos the meat was tender and pretty good. The tortillas not homemade but all right. Plate came with rice and beans both decent. Also sour cream and guac no extra charge. Also had Triple stack quesadillas and they... More

A group of us always go here after our Easter play performance to celebrate another successful year and to wind down after a hectic day. Always good food, good drinks

Food good if you like a Mexican influence some of it was very hot. Would recommend a purple Rita but you're not allowed to have more than two. Cheaply priced

Not what it used to be, but still good. Waitress was like a robot. No personality. Food is good. But quality has gone down some. Still fun for casual dinner.

The good news for non-Mexican food eaters is that Baby A's does a great burger. The bad news is that if you're looking for wifi while you lunch, you'll be disappointed. In the words of our server, 'the wifi sucks'. The burger was however one of the best I've eaten this trip and our party loved the Mexican food here... More

My friend had talked about this place for a while, and after constantly driving past it on the highway, I decided it needed to be checked out. The parking wasn’t bad, and there was a nice indoor waiting area. There were separated dining areas with a lot of space. Without any soft surfaces on the walls or floor, a small... More

First time here and kept hearing about how great "the purples" are. Since I was off, it was time for some drinks and relax on a Monday. The chips and salsa is one of the better I've had in the area. Chips are warm and the salsa is chunky. We ordered the Chirizo caso and the flavor was awesome. The... More

Our evening at Baby Acapulco was the high point of a business trip to the hip city of Austin. We left Chicago in a blizzard and ended up a few days later on the outdoor patio at Baby Acapulco, enjoying a $5 glass of prosecco and some of the most interesting, delicious food we've ever encountered in this style restaurant....

It was ok. Nothing bad about it nothing good about it. I was hungry so we tried it. I will probably not go back.

Awful experience. Rude, in attentive service, forgotten food, drinks, and chips, 20 minute lag time between my family's food being brought out and mine. Free kids meals are tiny and not worth giving away for free. Oh, the kicker: tip automatically added to parties of 5 or more. So, apparently our server had no incentive to put forth effort. The...
