    It's not typical Mexican fare - but it's been an Indianapolis fixture for a long time for a reason...

    Ketchup + oil does not equal salsa.

    Got to disagree with Mike R on the salsa. It is unique and more flavorful than the typical salsas served by every other Mexican restaurant. I go through withdrawal if I don't get it often enough.

    Worst Mexican food ever. The queso was disgusting-some powdered bowl of yuck. Ordered the 3 amigos-which was not good either. Go eat at a real Mexican place- like Panchos II at 96th and Allisonville

    Acapulco Joe's is the best Mexican restaurant in Indy! They have the best chips and salsa hands down. These people are nuts if they believe the salsa is nasty.

    Horrible. Salsa WAS ketchup. Tortillas dry. Fajita meat had salsa added to add flavor. All that wrapped in a biker bar ambience. On a positive note, the diet coke was cold.

    Don't eat here. It's like gas station food. The salsa is like ketchup. Plus, it's waaaayyy overpriced. I've never actually eaten truly nasty food before, but this is it.

    Here's a tip, save your money and go hungry.It's horrible! Salsa is an a ketchup bottle thats been touched by 1000 people, chips are not even chips they're taco shells broken in half by God knows who.

    Ignored the negative reviews but unfortunately, I do not recommend this place either. The salsa and guacamole were gross. The service was poor. Overall, it was not at all worth trying.

    Run from this place. Sat down for 25 minutes and was given stale chips. A waitress never showed her face even after asking the host to get us one. The host appears clueless as to what is going on.
