The Best Acapulco Restaurants
I have tried to cover a representative sample of Acapulco restaurants in this guide so that you can find cheap food
and traditional Mexican cuisine as well as the finest dining establishments. Most taxis or the concierge at your hotel
will know of these restaurants by name, or at least by general location. I will be adding restaurant reviews to this
guide on a regular basis, so check back again before (or during) your trip.

Traditional Mexican Food
The Mexican Loncheria: Just about anywhere you go, you will see small
open-air restaurants along the road (the menu of the day often serves as the sign). These are commonly called
"Loncherias". Ask for the "comida corrida" (fast food, or lunch of the day) in the afternoon. It will probably range from
US$2 to US$3 and will come with tortillas, beans, rice, salsa, and sometimes a drink. If you want to be safe, a simple
rule of thumb is to go to the busier restaurants, but you may miss out on some gems in the process.
