You start with free chips and salsa, and I enjoyed a 34 ounce Coors Light($6) and the lunch special Burrito Nacional($8) a cheesy covered burrito of goodness that I don't want to know the calorie count on but always hits the spot when I visit here. I sat at the bar this time and service was great, where one bartender... More

We enjoy hitting Acapulco with friends from work for happy hour once or twice a month. Make sure you try El Viaje, the Lift Bridge brew made exclusively for Acapulco. It is excellent! The two entrees listed in my favorites are below. We stick to those two almost exclusively. They taste the most like authentic Mexican food, and they don't... More

Dinner Saturday night with family. We had seven people in our group. Waited a long time to be seated, but that was OK. It was a busy Saturday night. Once we got to our table, our waitress took our drink orders. She got the orders wrong, but we didn't make a fuss. When we finally were able to place our... More

Did not think this place was that great. The chips and salsa were OK at best and the meal itself was kind of bland. The cheese dip was pretty good though. Would not go here again.

Humongous portions (fajitas) and tasty food...equals happiness! Our neighbors recommended this place and we will be back. We read several negative reviews and it must have been a different restaurant.

My friend and I met at Acapulco's for lunch at 11:00am. We had a wonderful waitress, she brought us our drinks and while we were eagerly munching on chips and salsa, she asked us if we would like there famous cheese dip or Guacamole. I told her I can't have the Guacamole because they put sour cream in it. To... More

A go to spot for local Mexican food. Nice, busy restaurant with good food. New menus, so look carefully. You can order ala carte which I do, due to dietary restrictions. You have to ask for the ala carte as it is no longer posted on the menu. They will accommodate upon request.. Wet Burrito was great. Nice flavor, good... More

I hadn't visited this restaurant for at least a year after having a not so good dinner, but both my friend and I had very tasty and fresh lunches this month.
