Acapulco Mexican Restaurant Complaint - To Salty - Gigante Carnitas Burritos

Review by Kealen on 2011-05-16
TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA -- On Saturday evening 5/7/11 we decided to go to Acapulco Mexican Restaurant for our anniversary. My husband I choice the same order which was the Gigante Carnitas Burrito. Which is one of our favorites on the first bite of the burrito it was so salty that it made me loose my appetite. Our weighter was very nice but this has happen before and seems like the are not telling their cooks. What happen is my husband decided not to return his burrito and he has been sick with a bad headache, dizziness and eleviated high blood pressure. I told the weighter of the saltiness of the burrito and they seems to not make changes. For health reason I think the restaurant should sell their food with lower salt and it is better to add salt because you cannot take seasoning out when it has been heavily season.

If the OP's husband has blood pressure issues then why would he be eating pork in the first place let alone not sending the food back and eating it if it was so salty?

Would you give up carnitas if you had BP issues? I know I wouldn't...lol

Green, you make a valid point.
You know anything about this place?

Lsalvador, Despite numerous concussions, brown ale bottle crownings and VPO arrest warrants you still haven't given up women? See my point her man. So you of all people should understand the temptation of unhealthy desires. Am I right or am I right or am I right.

Their not bad, more of a hang out type joint, like El Toritos or Garcia's. Garcia's being the better out of the two...IMO

I go to the smaller hole in the wall places where the food is more authentic...We used to have a local Mexican Bakery that had the best carnitas...My favorite Mexican food joint this side of the border is called La Placita...Locally owned and everything on the menu is great.

I can resist everything but temptation.

I prefer the hole in the wall type of places as well, Green.
I am a pork green chile junkie and if I was told to lay off pork....Stuart, in this case I must agree with you.

I've found that a lot of chain Mexican restaurants use too much salt in their food. This is why I go to family owned, hole in the wall Mexican places.

I agree Yaya.
I just saw that a mutual friend of ours did a raving review about a carnita taco from Taco Bell! Yuck!

Really sal? I never knew they had Carnita tacos. I know they had CANTINA tacos. Learn something new everyday.

Correction: CAN(T)INA TACOS! Either way neither of them sound too appetizing coming from there.
I'd be willing to bet that they don't even sell them anymore.

Wally, 'carnita' means pork

....And 'cantina' doesn't mean Taco Bell!

I don't see where the OP says her husband has blood pressure issues.

Momsey, its at the end of the complaint. She says that ever since eating the overly salty Carnitas, her husband "as been sick with a bad headache, dizziness and eleviated high blood pressure".

Samanthasmom, I know that the OP said this meal affected her hubby's BP, but Lsalvador implied that the hubby had a history of HBP and questioned why he would choose that meal.

"....bad headache, dizziness and eleviated high blood pressure...."

I'd be willing to bet that this wasn't the first time that he had these afflictions.

Probably not. I somehow don't think one meal would make his blood pressure suddenly go up.

People who overuse salt usually don't really know how to cook.
