Julie is amazing ! Thank you for the great service we love the food and really wanted cheese dip and taco fixings for a party. She helped us out in a last minute taco emergency and we were able to make our staff really happy.

Acapulco is a great place for good Mexican-American food. Their entrees are consistently good, and their prices are reasonable. I recommend their queso dip for an appetizer - it's addicting! And watch local publications for coupons. I recommend Acapulco for a simple evening out with family or friends.

Aside from tight parking due to the shared parking lot with other businesses, this place is great. There is a bar area as well as dining area which is certainly family friendly. We usually get a deal on a drink special and love the fajitas every time. Friendly and helpful staff, large portions, reasonable prices.

I've eaten in and ordered out. I crave their chimichangas all the time. The queso is amazing. They have quite the selection of margaritas and they are strong. The waitstaff has been great, very friendly.

I have eaten here many times for lunch. They have the best chips, salsa and you have to try the Acapulco Salad. It is by far the best salad I have ever had. Lot's of chicken and great flavor!!

Super yummy hard shell chicken tacos. I ordered a 'tall' beer and it's pretty much a small keg! ......and that's awesome. Chips and salsa while you wait for food. I wish it was closer to my house.

Thank brandonolynick
