Terrible Service. Would NOT return.

We had awful service.. thanks for that birthday perk. Waitress didn't even ask if we needed more drinks- margaritas or water when mine was drained. I saw how she treated the other table so I asked a different woman to bring me a water. Waitress took our salsa but left the chips and never brought... read more

I went there for an early dinner with a friend. We were seated right away. After that, the service was extremely slow even though the restaurant wasn't that busy. When we finally got our food, I took one bite only to pull out a piece of metal or thick tin foil. It took a good 10-15 minutes for our server... More

Over the past year or two we've noticed a big improvement in Acapulco. It used to be that the food would be hit and miss, sometimes good and sometimes not so good. However, starting about a year ago or so, things seems to have improved significantly. Now, every time we go the food is good. The past three times we've... More

It was a cold night in Stillwater but one can stay inside only so long before cabin fever strikes. We braved the single digit temps to consume some Acapulco Tacos. One might expect cheap chow to be accompanied by indifferent service but that was not the case. Our server was both friendly and efficient. The food was good, the service... More

We have been going to this restaurant since it opened, or I should say before they became popular. We always liked it but we have had enough. The kitchen has gotten slower and slower and slower. So don't go there if you have time constraints. In the past the food has been hit or miss, mostly quite good but tonight... More

We stop in occasionally for an inexpensive evening. Margaritas are the Tuesday special of the day. Tacos and fajitas are always good. The service is good most of the time but can be spotty other times.

We have eaten at this Acapulco restaurant a few times before, but not since we turned vegan. In the past we have enjoyed the food and service was OK. At lunch today things were a little different. We need significant help in navigating their menu. Our server was very helpful and creative. We ended up with a vegan burrito created... More

no bland generic mexican food here. Everything was very flavorful. We ate off the lunch menu and had more than generous portions.

My most recent visit to this restaurant will be my last. The food came out cold and tasteless, the fajitas were cold and poorly seasoned. The service was slow - and worse was poorly trained and very unaware of how to treat customers. We sent the fajitas back, they said they would make new ones. The same plate came back... More

Go anywhere else. Only thing worse than the food is the decor and the sticky menus. Lots of families, kids, noise.
