El Jacalito

Mexican in Acapulco

Just off the strip and a few paces from the beach, this thatched restaurant can nevertheless have a secluded vibe. It feels very authentic, with its traditional checked tablecloths and cordial staff, and the food backs it up. Great rolled chicken tacos, delicious frijoles (beans), affordable fish dishes and filling breakfasts make it an oasis at any time of day.
