Acapulco’s: The Tri-states Source for Authentic Mexican Cuisine.




Fiesta Acapulco opened for business in 2003 in the Apple Center in Newburgh, Indiana. Acapulco’s quickly gained recognition for the quality of their authentic Mexican cuisine and as a result, the business grew quickly. Owners Melvin Ortez and his wife Blanca realized that they could do more for their customers if they had room to grow. They decided to move the business down the street to High Point Drive in Newburgh, situated between Wal-mart and Bob’s Gym. The Relocation opened up many possibilities for the Ortez’s. They have added a full climate-controlled patio, a playground for customers’ children, and additional parking for their increased business.

Though their building may have changed, their signature food items and daily specials have not. Customer favorites such as the Fajitas, Quesadillas, and Mexican Pizza remain on the menu as do their famous margaritas. Acapulco’s offers many food and drink specials that change daily, encouraging their customer’s to try something new while creating a dining experience that captures the culture of Mexico while offering a top-notch dining experience.

The Ortez’s, immigrants of Honduras and Mexico, are excited about the relocation of the restaurant and the development happening around Newburgh and are looking forward to the increased traffic and business from new offices, apartments, and businesses that are popping up around the area. The Ortez’s have a second Acapulco’s in LaGrange, Kentucky in addition to their Newburgh location. Though their restaurants are spread out, the Ortez’s think of the Evansville area as their home and have been residents of Newburgh since 2002.

The Acapulco’s Newburgh location employs 25 people while their Kentucky restaurant employs 22. The Ortez’s encourage both new and returning customers to continue to visit as there is always something new going on or something new to try.
