Moreno Valley

The Acapulco Inn in the Moreno Valley.

I must thank IE-Dude for reminding me of this excellent Restaurant located in what used to be turn 9 of the Riverside International Raceway. They had just finished building the new Riverside Records office when the Acapulco opened its doors to the public.

And being so different than the traditional fare of Mexican food places found in the Moreno Valley, the Acapulco was an immediate hit.

They are also fashioned after another restaurant, 'On the Border' being owned by the same group, there foods are similar, but yet they offer different specialties. The Shrimp scampi served with a green chili Verde sauce is excellent, and the Lobster and Abalone Bisque is equally some of the best Mexican sea food I have ever eaten.

A friend of mine who was out at the court house recently stopped by and had one of their new signature dishes, the salmon grilled to perfection and served with sherry butter souse, also includes a shrimp barque served on a bed of Mexican rice and a crab Enchilada. A bit pricey at over $17.00 it was magnificent and Bob is hard to please. On our next trip out there I plan on trying this item.
