Good Mexican Food

The food was good, the staff was friendly, and it was a nice atmosphere. The restaurant was close to some motels.

This was a great experience. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. It does take a little longer than most Mexican restaurants but it is worth the wait. You can tell everything is fresh

Acapulco has a traditional Mexican atmosphere fountain included. They offer an extensive menu with all the traditional Mexican fare and cocktails to accompany. The food was typical Mexican nothing spectacular but much better than any other I have had in Cape thus far. I recommend it for if your in town.

The food was generously portioned and very good, though the service was a little lacking. Although the place was fairly empty, we waited several minutes before our party was acknowledged. One of the staff came by almost immediately with chips and salsa (which was slightly spicier than I'm used to for pico de gallo), but we waited another 15 minutes... More

We waited a good 10 minutes before the waiter arrived to take our drink order. Chips and salsa were just OK. I ordered tea and water to drink and had to ask for water a second time. Several members of our group ordered no guacamole and no sour cream, yet both meals were served with these items on the plates.... More

The food was pretty good. I did like the table we sat at-we had plenty if space & privacy. The seating isn't crammed. Service was ok but not A1.

We were greeted courteously and ushered to our table and our drink orders taken. The prices were very reasonable and the food plentiful and tasty.

My wife and I took a short trip to southeast Missouri in Feburary. The first evening we were in Cape Girardeau we thought: Mexican food tonight: El Acapulco - a good choice. Inasmuch as their menu is not included in their website and Joan can’t remember what her entree was called, I will have to just describe it: two thin,... More

Finally, a fajita plate that is great!!!. That is my focus at any Mexican Restaurant and El Acapulco treated my palate with these Superb Fajitas. The only thing that may have made the Fajita eating experience better would have been for these to have been served in a sizzling hot cast iron skillet. Never the less, these tasted better than...
