The other night I was out with friends celebrating my friend's birthday. It was a night of sitting at the Loose Goose enjoying several pints of cider, followed by a short stint at the casino. We left the casino craving some grub. I had a huge craving for Taco Bell, but all of us knew we didn't want to pay the consequences of consuming Taco Bell if you know what I mean.

Adam suggested we go to Acapulco Delight. In my 6 years of living in Windsor, I had never heard of Acapulco Delight, but apparently it has been around for a long time. Adam and Eman were cracking jokes about this place. The fact that it is a Mexican restaurant run by an Asian family was often at the heart of the jokes.

Upon walking in, I couldn't help but chuckle on the inside. The tacky interior was like an Asian restaurant wanting to be a Mexican one. They had the stereotypical fish tanks filled with fish and even painted turtles but also had sombreros stuck on the walls just to prove they were indeed a Mexican restaurant.

The graphic on waiter's shirt
The waiter was quick to come greet us with menus and a conversation ensued about his Peter Griffin looking like Che Guevara T-shirt. I just kept starting at the tank of painted turtles, which the waiter also began joking about calling them the Ninja Turtles and joking that Splinter was in the kitchen.

The waiter took our drink orders, and returned back not only with our drinks but also with some hot nacho chips with homemade salsa and another slightly spicy sauce.

My two hard tacos with refried beans and rice just $7
I personally went with the hard tacos for just $7. It includes two hard beef tacos with refried beans and rice on the side and a guacamole to share. The tacos were so much better than what we would have ended up with at Taco Bell. They were so fresh tasting, with a homemade taste to the tortilla shells. The guacamole just as delicious.

It is hard to believe that this Mexican Town Restaurant exists on this side of the border in Windsor. With the open till late times, be sure to check out this hidden gem on your next time out in Downtown Windsor.

This is THE place to eat anytime of the day. I just wish they would buy/build a better looking place in a better neighbourhood.....keeping the food the same. Their business would sky-rocket!!! The food is FANTASTIC. VERY authentic and Mex. Town quality. LOVE this place.
