Veggies are fresh and juicy, try fresh, made in front of you guacamole salad. Main dishes were not that impressive, but totally edible.

Lots of shrimp but potatoes! Awful drinks and beer were very expensive. Salsa ok but the potatoes really ruined the whole experience.

The greeters are Super friendly so ask to sit by the ocean and make sure the fires on it'll be a wonderful experience. Come with a loved one and maybe buy some enchiladas with some beans and rice they have Margarita Mondays with is always a plus if you want some drinks by the bar. Give it a chance

This is typical, cheap Mexican fare from a chain restaurant. The location is lovely, on the San Pedro harbor waterfront in Los Angeles Harbor.

Came here at a suggestion of a friend who lives in San Pedro. Though she suggested the quest con spinach y shrimp I wasn't up for the amalgamation, however, the chips and salsa were on point. The food was reasonably priced for the portions. The steak fajita was scrumptious. I was surprised by the presentation and the seasoned potatoes that... More

We went to the first Boat Show held at the newly refurbished Marina in LA Harbor and after 3 hours of walking around the show, realized that there are no restaurants close by. As we drove out, we found Acapulco's and decided to stop. What a treat, we sat outside and watched boats go in and out of the harbor.... More

It was Monday morning, so no rush. Service was pretty quick, but the food itself was so-so. Taste was kind of "fast food". Even the day was sunny and nice - the impression was not.
