I don't know if they were short staffed or what when we were there, but it seemed to be one person working both the bar and the floor. It took forever to get anything and hard to get her attention if we needed something - simply because she appeared overwhelmed. The nachos we ordered were fabulous and the margaritas your... More

We visited our daughter and she suggested Acapulco Cantina. It had been a year or so since we had gone for a meal here. The food was wonderful the service was great. They were child and senior friendly. I highly reccomend Acapulco Cantina for a family meal for any age and or size of group.

Monday always starts with a great Happy Hour in the bar area!! Nachos, Buffalo Wings and Margaritas!!! Definitely beats the restaurant portion by a landslide. Good margaritas on the rocks for several dollars is well worth the trip. Bartenders make the blues of the week more relaxing after several drinks!! Music starts 7PM and goes all night as Karaoke!!

For a restaurant chain on Easter Sunday to present a poorly planned/prepared Brunch is unacceptable! Arriving several hours after opening and walking through the buffet line. First, Pollo and Carne' were cold. Other entrees in the serving dish..also cold. Many food items were not replaced as customers scurried to consume the last morsels. The enchiladas stuck together as glue. In... More

If you order from the regular menu, the food is good but a bit overpriced. Their specials are pretty good. The thing that is well worth it is the Sunday brunch buffet. It's a huge spread and there's always a good crowd so everything is fresh.

We go here often. I love the carnitas. They are always delicious. They just melt in my mouth. My husband usually gets enchiladas and likes them. Last time we were there he had to have a special diet for a short period of time, and they accommodated our request (no tomato or tomato sauce) without a problem. We hadn't really... More

I haven't seen my West coast family in ten years and we decided to meet up at this restaurant near us for Mexican food. Karaoke night was super slow but the KJ was really sweet and fun. The margaritas weren't very strong but the waitress was really nice. I ordered steak fajitas and I guess they marinated the meat which... More
