About Acapulco, Corpus Christi
Acapulco de Juárez (Spanish: [akaˈpulko de ˈxwaɾes]), commonly called Acapulco, is a city, municipality and major seaport in the state of Guerrero on the Pacific coast of Mexico, 380 kilometres (240 mi) south of Mexico City. Acapulco is located on a deep, semicircular bay and has been a port since the early colonial period of Mexico's history. It is a port of call for shipping and cruise lines running between Panama and San Francisco, California, United States. The city of Acapulco is the largest in the state, far larger than the state capital Chilpancingo. Acapulco is also Mexico's largest beach and balneario resort city. The city is best known as one of Mexico's oldest and most well-known beach resorts, which came into prominence in the 1950s as a getaway for Hollywood stars and millionaires. Acapulco is still famous and still attracts many tourists, although most are now from Mexico itself. The resort area is divided into two: The north end of the bay is the "traditional" area, where the famous in the mid-20th century vacationed, and the south end is dominated by newer luxury high-rise hotels. The name "Acapulco" comes from Nahuatl language Aca-pōl-co, and means "where the reeds were destroyed or washed away". The "de Juárez" was added to the official name in 1885 to honor Benito Juárez, former President of Mexico (1806–1872). The seal for the city shows broken reeds or cane. The island and municipality of Capul, in the Philippines, derives its name from Acapulco; Capul was the western end of the trans-Pacific sailing route from Acapulco to what was then a Spanish colony.Wikipedia

Love this place! We've been coming here almost everyday for the past 6 years. The waiters already know our names, our kids. They're a great staff and very fast. We've never had a problem. The only thing I can say that's bad is the parking. Everyone loves this place as much as we do I guess!
Breakfast is the only meal I've tried. It has always been good. The place is packed on weekends, so parking can be a little challenging. The menu items I've tried have been well worth the effort though.
We have been eating here for at least 20 years. Food is always excellent, service is always fast and friendly. We've actually ate at the other 3 locations but the original just can't be beat. The menu selection is also expansive, yet even the most expensive plate still costs less than the cheap plates at that place on Everhart
E,cellent eggs and service was great but limited on other items availability. When making a special request due to dietary restrictions I was unable to get what I needed and the waitress became upset when I just ordered toast. Manager wad very nice when hearing how I was treated
I love the tortilla soup! Great appetizer, well priced. My only constructive criticism is that they shouldn't give straws for all drinks because it is bad for the environment!
