We have visited Soldotna four times and it has become a tradition for us to have our first meal at Acapulco. We feel the portions are more than adequate and the prices are reasonable for Alaska. A good value.

Right across street from our hotel. Great burritos and draft Mexican beer. Waitresses were friendly and service was excellent. Very generous portions.

Smaller place, but very clean. Staff seemed a little annoyed by us being there, perhaps it was not the best day for them. Food was pretty good. Husband had the chipotle chicken, and I had the chicken and cilantro quesadilla. Good food, but we probably wouldn't stop there again if we came back to the area.

After an exciting day viewing bears this restaurant was recommended to us. So my family went here...we LOVE Mexican food. We were greeted by a "lady"-or shall I say a 'gruff hard woman' seated us. Her attitude only got worse and the food there was FAIR at best, nothing special. Large portions though. I can not recommend and would not... More

The Mexican food at the Acapulco was very good. It opened a short time ago and we met some local friends for lunch. The service was exceptional and food was really good. Enchilada's were my favorite, but others enjoyed the burrito's.

Was happy to finally find good Mexican food in Alaska! Salsa was yummy and that's a definite must for starters. I had the carnia asada and it had some good flavor. Will definitely go back on a return visit. Could use a little overhaul inside, but all in all if your craving the food this is the place to go.... More

We pulled in off our motorcycles chilled and they brought out hot chocolates and a tasty meal. Very convenient to our hotel across the street, and the service was friendly and quick

If you are looking for a restaurant with great Mexican food and a great view, the Soldotna Acapulco Restaurant is a great dining experience. They have a full bar and an outside deck.

The restaurant has moved to a new location on the east edge of town with a new building. Very nice. The food and service is the same good quality. I like to eat here when I am in Soldotna. Because of the population served the food isn't very spicy but otherwise it is great. I really like their chili verde.
