The food is excellent prices are outstanding and if you get more than seven ships down before your meal comes the desk when you order the special things are going wrong in the kitchen. I highly recommend it anytime you are in fargo to come here and eat

What can you say--- family run, friendly, incredible value and a great selection of $2 Mexican beers on Saturday night. Large portion size and fast! Yes, of course there is free chips and home made salsa. Great value for money. If you want real (good) Mexican fare, go here.

This is the best Mexican in town. Prices are great. Selection of Mexican beers is very good. All is reasonable and so much more interesting than the chain places. The seafood stuff is very good. Anything with shrimp and the seafood casuela which has scallops, shrimp and fish. Their corn tortilla is best. Flan is good there also. Their guacomole... More

The margaritas were generous-sized, and the food was mostly good. I liked the Choroburro, which I had never had before. me friend enjoyed the fajitas and her... More

I went to Acapulco a few weeks ago with my wife and we LOVED it. I can’t believe how amazing the new decor looks after the remodeling. We can’t wait for the patio to open next month! Enjoying a nice Corona outside on the patio is what I’ve been waiting for. The food is excellent and the service is even... More

Whenever we are in Fargo, we make sure to go for lunch at Acapulco Mexican Restaurant. It is always a big meal, very inexpensive and always delicious. There is also tortilla chips and salsa to "fill in the cracks" if needed. Always friendly staff and the restaurant is charming and clean. The only problem is finding how to get to... More

We eat here regularly and I have previously reviewed them. The food is still good. The Chili Verde was great. The Beef Fajitas are tender and taste like they are marinated before cooking. Their chili con queso is first rate. Were are not as fond of their chips and salsa. The chips are thick, heavy and course. Nothing wrong with... More

The service here was very fast. We got our food so fast I barely had a sip of my margarita. We were in and out in less then 30 minutes and $20 for two people.
