More authentic than Mexican Village

If you like Americanized Mexican food, which is it's own flavor profile and certainly fine, then you might not want to dive in to Acapulco. If you are looking for authentic Mexican food and know what you like, this is the place to get it.

Acapulco has been one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Fargo for years and that hasn't changed. It does seem like the portion sizes have gotten bigger though. I am pretty sure my husband and I could've shared a burrito and still had trouble finishing it. They keep the chips and salsa coming throughout your meal as well. The most... More

We were not real crazy about the flavors of the food. It was like the oil/grease was off. The service was very fast and efficient but I won't be going back for a long time Glad I had a coupon.

Stopped here for an early dinner as we were driving through Fargo. The chips and salsa were very good, a nice compliment to the excellent happy hour drink specials. My wife and I had the beef fajitas for two, which were very tasty and prepared with plenty of onions and peppers. The refried beans were a little blah, but small... More

Order the Enchilada meal. No filling (flat like a sheet of paper) cold. Rice was cold and what passed as refried beans was cold and again quantity was this as paper. Worst Mexican meal I have ever had.

I love Mexican food, and I have been to Mexico. I read about the Acapulco Restaurant in the monthly Fargo Guide. I was in Fargo for a few days. I decided to go there for lunch. I found the decor kitschy, but cute Mexican style. However, the tv station that was on, was Spanish, and the restaurant music was Spanish.... More

This restaurant is located near the Super 8 hotel; it is alright--I love Mexican food and it is comparable to other Mexican restaurants--authentic Mexican restaurants.
