Absolutely the best Mexican restaurant in Cleveland by FAR! – 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!
Great food great drinks great atmospere! – 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.
Best Mexican food on Cleveland's west side – 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!
I've been to better. – 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.
Cadillac Margarita on the Rocks – 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.
Best Mexican Found in the Area – 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!
Worst ever – 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.
BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN THE ENTIRE AREA! However, take-out is just so-so. – 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!
Best Mexican Restaurant in Ohio (if not the world) – 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!
THE VERY BEST IN CLEVELAND!!!!!!!!!! – ARIZONA BOYS LOVE MEXICAN BUT I GAVE UP ON IT IN CLEVELAND TILL A FRIEND TOLD ME ABOUT NUEVO ACAPULCO. FOLKS THIS IS NOT ONLY THE BEST MEXICAN FOOD IN CLEVELAND,THE PRICES ARE A BARGAIN AND THE PORTIONS ARE HUGE. FOLKS THEIR CHIPS AND SALSA ARE FANTASTIC AND NEVER STOP COMING.

THEIR WAIT STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY AND VERY ATTENTIVE. THIS IS WITH OUT A DOUGHT MY FAVORITE RESTURANT IN CLEVELAND. I DRIVE ALL THE WAY FROM MAYFIELD HTS TO GET THERE AND YES IT IS WORTH THE DRIVE.
