I'm a fan of Acapulco in Stillwater. This one was nice and staff was friendly. The food offered is pretty basic and large quantities. It's worth a shot.

Pretty Americanized Mexican Food, but still very good. Prices are reasonable, and the staff was well trained. No complaints, and we will be back when in the area!

First of all, service was very slow. Took over 15 minutes to get a margarita. The place was busy but not THAT busy. We ordered fajitas with chicken and steak. We were served fajitas with shrimp. Luckily we saw it was wrong right away since my husband is allergic to shrimp and eating this could have sent him to the... More

Want a good but cheap bill for eating out then go to Acapulco Reataurante every Monday starting at 7:00pm you can get soft or hard shell tacos for 1.00 each plus unlimited chips and salsa and they are well worth the money. The one in Maplewood offers it check first to the one you are going to to see if... More

I had hoped that things would be better than our last visit over a year ago, but it was just worse. Food was floating in grease. The place has not seen a good cleaning in years. Needs updating badly. Dark and dirty ...............horrible. I would rather go to a fast food place than set foot in that place again. Do... More

Where to begin. Starts when wevwalked in to the place and we waited for at least 5mins. For someone to show up. We kept seeing people walk by us and just ignore the fact we were waiting to be seated. Finally... As we were about to then around n leave someone decides to come seat us. They placed us right... More

We had a party of four. One meal was not what was ordered. Which was a taco salad. When the salad came out, it looked terrible. Some kind of bean mash with lettuce. She could not eat it. My order was a chimi, which did not look fried at all. It was a dough wrap with a white gravy that... More

We were greeted right away and the server took into consideration the fact that I was with someone who couldn't walk well and seated us at a close booth. Our drinks were brought quickly as well as our food. The food was very very good and the server kept our drinks full. The staff and food were great.

Save you $ and go to Taco Bell. Service was fantastic, everything else was poor at best. The free chips when you sit down, was the highlight of our, quite frankly, awful dining experience here. The food was not bland it was BAD. So bad I wonder why I even brought the leftovers home. I suspect that will get set... More

There are several Acapulco restaurants in the Twin Cities, but the Maplewood location is my favorite, primarily because of the terrific staff and the consistent food and beverages. Though the facility could probably use a bit of scrubbing (i.e. table tops seems a bit "sticky" and the floors are dingy), it is a comfortable atmosphere overall. You can always count... More
