We'll have to update Creative Loafing's "23 under-the-radar Tampa Bay taco spots you need to try before you die" slideshow, because one of the area's most prized taquerias has recently returned from a hiatus.

Acapulco Taqueria is now open out of its original location at 1001 N Macdill Ave. in West Tampa, adjacent to Rollin’ Oats Market and Alessi Bakery.

The popular, family-owned taqueria re-opened about a month ago according to its  brand new Facebook page, where dozens of mouthwatering taco photos live.

Acapulco closed sometime in 2021 for unknown reasons. A Reddit thread from last year shows dozens of taco-lovers mourning the closure of Acapulco, where folks bonded over its “legendary carnitas.” A Redditor says that the taqueria temporarily closed to remodel,  but didn't end up reopening its doors until fall 2022.

The popular Mexican spot boasts the same menu of chicken, chorizo, al pastor, carnitas, shrimp and birria tacos, burritos, tostadas and quesadillas—which are now all available for online ordering as well.  Wash your street tacos down with glass-bottled sodas, fruit juices or an ice cold cerveza.

Acapulco is now open with limited hours of 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, plus 5 p.m.-9 p.m. on Wednesday. It’s closed every Monday, Saturday and Sunday.

For more information on the newly-reopened Acapulco Taqueria, head to or its new Facebook page.
