I have been going to Nuevo Acapulco for YEARS, and find it to be the best Mexican restaurant in Cleveland. Don't be fooled by the outside! This place has amazing food at reasonable prices. Just check out all the 'celebrities' on the wall when you walk in that have great things to say about N.A! Oh, and the fajitas are to die for!

Cons: n/a

I have been here a lot of times and will definately return again. From their homemade salsa to their fajitas everything is just the best! Not to forget the margaritas! YUM YUM! The only thing I don't like is sometimes when their really busy you have to park behind the building and it's next to a pretty seedy looking motel and I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to my cars.

This place is not a chain restaurant by any means! The food is nicely seasoned, not too hot, unless you prefer it that way. Love the margaritas and the atmosphere. It's been my family's favorite for years!

Went to the Nuevo Acupulco in Berea last night after all the rave reviews. The food was good, although everyone saying this place has the best margaritas, should really measure theirs against the best in the tri-county area, Mariachis Coco in Northfield. Five dollars on most nights for their 26 oz margaritas sweeps away the competition in price and taste. Their food prices are better too.

I have been going there for many years. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that place. Besides the food, my favorite beverage is a CADILLAC MARGARITA...ohmygod. I have to say that we shared a pitcher once in the bar area....not as great as individual glasses. They hook you up individually!!! I have never had a bad experience. The food has always been great. The service is excellent. The prices are right. I have been to quite a few Mexican Restaurants in Northeast Ohio. Nuevo Acapulco is still my favorite one after all these years. I never turn down any opportunity to feast there...and of course, with the Cadillac Margarita. YUMMMMM!! My mom (66 years old) as well as all my siblings always look forward to going there as opposed to any other restaurant. I could eat just the salsa and chips alone because they are so good and made from scratch. I do get them to go when I have a craving for them. If you like the salsa really hot, ask for the green salsa. WOW! My mouth is watering thinking about it. I have several friends who I have turned on to that place and they love it as well.

Pros: Motel next door if you have too many margaritas. LOL

Cons: None

Nuevo is probably the best mexican food you will find in the Cleveland area. As someone who loves hot & spicy tex/mex, authentic mexican, this is thumbs up bar none the best around. As for "ocho" who thought this food was terrible, all I can say is you must not have the right restaurant! THIS IS NO TACO BELL with table cloths either. I have tried a variety of items from the menu and never had a bad dish. I would encourage anyone who enjoys mexican cuisine to stop in any night of the week and enjoy the atmosphere, great staff and wonderful food!

I love Mexican food. My husband is from Mexico. We have been to Mexico, and I have eaten in several places there. We I walked into Nuevo Acapulco and saw the sings saying best Mexican in Cleveland we were in for a treat. We were wrong. The food was awful. We didn't eat. It was more like Chi Chi's than authentic Mexican. I would eat at Chipotle before I would eat there again.

Nuevo Acapulco is an amazing restaurant. The atmosphere is very "mexican restaurant"-ish, and the food is delicious. The staff is always very friendly and fast.

The following is what I order:
Carne Asada- Slices of Skirt steak in a burrito w/ grilled onions. You won't taste a better burrito anywhere.
White Queso Dip- goes great with the free chips & salsa.
Strawberry Margarita- frozen margarita with REAL strawberry chunks. Gets you drunk about halfway through :-)

One thing I can't recommend is the take out service. They wrap EVERYTHING in foil and it sticks to the food. Plus, if you order something crispy like a taco, it is usually mushy by the time it gets home. Also, i wish they offered salt on their tortilla chips.

Honestly, this and Shinto (Strongsville, Ohio) are my 2 all-time favorite restaurants. Check both of them out!

Pros: Burrito Asada, Margaritas, Free Chips/Salsa

Cons: Take out (too much foil sticks to everything and makes for mushy tacos!), Location/Parking (located right by a trashy hotel & trashy store)

I was born and raised in southern California and lived in Southern Texas before moving to Ohio. When I first was exposed to Nuevo Acapulco, I was floored by the quality (and quantity) of the food there. I travel internationally for work and spend several weeks a year in different parts of Mexico and to this day, nothing compares to Nuevo Acapulco. Highly Recommended!

I have tried many other Mexican restaurants, but there is no comparison. The food at Nuevo Acapulco is amazing - all of the ingredients taste fresh and are full of flavor. It is as close to real Mexican food than any other place and isn't a Tex-Mex place. The Sangria's were out of this world. Our waitress was very nice and very prompt and our bill was excellent for the amount of food we got. The restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but that is because it is a hidden gem.

PROS: Delicious Food

Nuevo Acapulco is the BEST Mexican Restaurant in Ohio! I have been dining there for the past 9 years. The food is always excellent, the atmosphere is charming, and the service is GREAT. The owner of the restaurant makes everyone feel like family. I can't say enough good things about this place. :) Other restaurants should take example. I'm going to continue going there for years to come.

Food was great overall. Salsa was saucy and now puree like usually you get. It was OK.
I had the Tacos al Carbon and they were good. A little salty, but good flavors.
My manger had the combo fajitas and he liked the flavors a lot.
Like I said , thanks.
The location might throw you off, but just go right in and enjoy.
Good Food. I will be back.

I've been going there ever since I found it, about 8 years ago. I have'nt found any other Mexican place that compares. A couple of my favorite dishes are the Tacos Carbon (steak) and the Nachos with ground meat. But I could go there and order almost anything off the menu and be happy. I can almost bet you will have leftovers to take home, because they give you so much. The prices are great, their Salsa is better than excellent. We make a trip out there just for Salsa and chips to take home. But If you one who likes jar Salsa then I suggest going to Chi Chi's or somewhere else cause this place isn't for you. But is you like Homemade, with all the seasonings including cilantro, please try this place. Thats nice, now I'm hungry for Nuevo. See you there.

Pros: Inexpensive, Great Food, Family oriented

Cons: , If it wasnt crowded, then how good is it?

I'm from Texas and have had some of the best mexican food there. Out of all the mexican restaurants I've been to here in Cleveland, Nuevo is absolutely the best. The food is awesome and the staff is great! They are always friendly and great service is the norm. There's something about their margaritas that keeps everyone going back for more. Everyone I know loves Nuevo and I'm always taking new people there (or recommending it) to try it out. They always agree it's the best! It is worth the wait in line, by the way. The only thing I find that could use some improvement is the chips. The flavor is rather bland.

Pros: Margaritas & the food, Service, Inexpensive

Cons: , The chips

I try not to judge a restaurant by the clientele, lest one become a snob, for this place is in a middle class suburb.

Poor parenting aside - the food here is very good for American Mexican food. Excellent price/value ratio. Some of the best margaritas I've ever had [and I've had alot!]

ORDINARY!
I gave it a 4 across the line because every thing about Nuevo Acapulco is just a little below average. Definetely for the Chi-Chi's and Taco Bell crowd.

This place overall is really good. It's nice and cheap, and the taste is way better than Chi-Chi's. The portions are big enough to take home leftovers, unless you're like me and lack self control. :-) To me, the food is really good, except for one thing, it's not spicy enough. That's my own personal taste, though. One fave dish of mine I recommend is the Chorizos Con Huevos (Eggs and Suasage with tortillas). I've gone their several times and will keep going there for a while.
