Delicious!

We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. We didn't have to wait for a table despite the fact the parking lot was full, they had plenty of seating. Our food was tasty and served to us quickly.

Missed the old ambiance of several years ago with the dark bar /dark lightning throughout...Lower prices and bigger meal servings may help bring people back to your restaurant....Also, offer Breakfast (Like El Padrino)

Three items make a great restaurant for us. Service, Food, Atmosphere. This restaurant was excellent in 2 out 3 areas but lacked greatly in the third. Food was excellent & atmosphere was lovely. Had a young man playing live guitar while we were there and enjoyable. We visited after a day at Magic Springs. Not really very busy but they... More

The food is real good. The drinks are really, real good. Service is fast and friendly. Décor is upscale Mexican with brilliant colors. Outside seating is nice.

Three of us stopped here for lunch with fairly low expectations, as two of us had eaten dinner her several months ago and were not impressed. Lunch bumped-up our assessment quite a bit. Unfortunately, we arrived just a huge party had been seated, putting quite a strain on the staff. However, they managed to keep up with only slight glitches... More

We were quite pleased with the food and especially the service we got here. Not quite Tex-Mex or Mexican and was very tasty.

With their huge menu, this restaurant definitely has something for everyone. Their meals are well prepared, nice portion size and reasonably priced. I particularly like their enchiladas and their taco salad at lunch is a great choice as well. Everything tastes fresh.....I also love the service level here. You will never have to wait for more tea, chips, salsa, etc.... More

This is one of several Mexican restaurants located in or near Hot Springs Village. It is far and away the best. The menu is complete with lots and lots of great choices. Our favorite was the Ranchero Special....wonderful....the prices are reasonable and the service is great....

I brought my wife here for her birthday dinner (her choice). We've driven by before, but this is the first time we've stopped (we moved here 3 months ago). We were seated within 60 seconds after stepping inside the door. Our waiter was a young man who was very attentive, and he was very good at checking back with us.... More

El Acapulco competes with several Mexican food establishments in Hot Springs Village. The food is definitely worth the wait but when we visited we waited far too long. twenty minutes before even being acknowledged!! The staff was passing in from of us but no information about when we would be seated . Finally we were seated and offered some very... More
