This place always seems to be packed, but we snuck in on a Wednesday for an early dinner. It's busy for good reason: the food is fresh and tasty. The portions are ample. There's a Tex-mex theme to the menu but it's not authentically Mexican. The prices are reasonable. I've recently relocated to Campbell from another country and in my... More

Got the recommendation from Trip Advisor. Great menu. It was busy, we were here at 4:30 for dinner. You get in a line like Chipotle and order. There was absolutely no seating. Our chips and salsa were brought to us while we were standing, waiting for a table. There were people in computers, no order, no buzzer, no food, taking... More

I will often plan my appointments, in the South Bay, around mealtimes, just so I can go to this restaurant. The food is creative and tasty. Most items have a bit of a burn to them. The price, taste, and presentation are excellent.

The food is always good here. Portions are good sized, visually appealing, taste good, prices are decent, and the dishes use fresh ingredients. The drinks are great, too. I just don't like the background noise.

Aqui has always ben a "go-to " place when in Campbell. Popular bar and drink menu, and excellent food. The creative menu assures fresh quality food. I have never been disappointed with the service, or the food.

The food itself is very good along with the ambience of both indoor and outdoor seating. The dishes are unique and the quality for me at least has always been excellent. Aqui is interesting in the sense that by way of allowing the clients to come and pick up their food, the service is extremely fast. So in a sense... More

Went here for the second time last week. The atmosphere is casual fun where you order at a counter. I ordered their crabcake salad that visually was a work of art and tasted devine. The menu could be catagorized as fresh mex unlike traditional mexican that has everything loaded with cheese.It can get crowded especially on weekends. Fun,fun, fun.

Lots of fun and excitement. Don't like the cafeteria style of ordering. The food was good and the margaritas are excellent.

This place is packed nearly seven days a week. It is insanely busy on the weekends all day and night. Excellent Cal-Mex food and drink, especially the margaritas and enchaladas. All ages for singles, couples, families, and groups. Campbell is the hottest little town in Silicon Valley. It used to be a sleepy little town that was established in the... More
