    Best Mexican food ever! Been coming here my whole life and love it. Four generations in my family and we all love it. Burritos, chimichangas, tacos, and the chili con queso are some of our favorites.

    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.

    If you don't dig the salsa, then just wait around bc the rest of the food is great. it is nice to have an unique place like this downtown

    So the salsa is "unique", the door pretty average, but their top shelf margarita will put you on the floor. Worth a trip for drinks alone. Plus it's an Indy institution (for whatever reason).

    The seafood chimichanga is my all time favorite. Delicious. The margaritas are on point.

    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.

    It is a tough choice between the Mexican omelet and the spicy biscuits and gravy. Both are awesome.

    Biscuits and gravy are awesome! Spiciness depends on who's cooking, but always delicious!

    They add red pepper to the biscuits and gravy to give it a kick and it is glorious!

    So we came here for devour downtown. Heard good things. I wanted something new. This place sucked. For mexican, they use too much sloppy joe mix. Or. Or they don't know salsa. Dumb. Read the caps.

    Decent Mexican food at affordable prices. Not the best in town, but it's solid.

    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.

    Food is mediocre as mexican goes...the best part is their fried ice cream. Definitely worth coming for.

    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

    Not 100% sure the busboy knows about the health code, but I'd skip the chips anyway.

    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.

    Sadly, Acapulco Joe is no longer with us. But I am relieved that he cannot see what is served here. I've had better frozen lunches of "Mexican" dishes.

    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.

    Indy wouldn't be the same without Joe's. The Chili Con Queso is amazing!

    Worst Mexican food I've ever had. The dining room and bathroom were disgusting. The 'salsa' was served in a ketchup bottle. The chips were stale. It took twenty minutes to get our microwaved queso.

    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.

    As for a tip, someone needs to wrestle the ketchup bottle away from the chef.

    Worse food and salsa I have ever had. Didn't know that you could screw up beef tacos but they were successful at it

    Nasty ketchup salsa, nasty manwhich meat, bland chips, ketchup flavored rice, pretty much the worst Mexican food I've ever had. At least my nieces French fries were decent.

    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.
