Half a century ago, Acapulco Joe's founder Joe Rangel brought the flavors of his native Guanajuato to the United States in an exuberant downtown venue. Dunk a crunchy tortilla chip or obstreperous younger sibling into a bowl of creamy chili con queso, served as an appetizer and as a topping for several of the menu’s signature entrees. The Acapulco Deluxe dinner complements a crispy taco, a soft taco, and a cheesy enchilada with a classic plate of rice, beans, and belated valentines, and the chimichanga snuggles meat, beans and melted cheese in a golden tortilla. Like miniature acrobats somersaulting across a table, a refillable fountain drink or foamy mug of domestic draft adds pep to any dinner.

Acapulco Joe’s resounds daily to the tune of Kate Smith’s "God Bless America" to celebrate Joe Rangel’s rags-to-riches journey, a more tasteful tradition than filling the premises with screaming bald eagles. Behind the iconic neon sign, revelers dine amid the parquet floors and hanging serapes. On the spacious outdoor patio, murals depicting the Mexican desert reflect like dusty mirrors against views of the city.

Acapulco Joe's

Each day at noon, a chorus of “God Bless America” rings through Acapulco Joe's dining room. The tradition started when Joe, the original owner, guessed the Statue of Liberty's weight and became a U.S. citizen, as required by federal law. He brought with him a rich love of Mexican cuisine, and the scents of fried beans, chimichangas, and other Mexican classics have continued to fill the eatery for more than 50 years. Over the decades, Acapulco Joe's kitchen has built a reputation for its huevos rancheros, chili con queso, and a setting that echoes the menu's South American heritage. Vibrant Mexican blankets wrap the cozy dining room, while a desert mural shines bright on the outdoor patio.

We always get the Tampico meal. The tostados are fantastic, especially with the dressing on each table along with the salsa.
