A great place to stop for mexican food. Nicely decorated, a great staff, and wonderful food. Large servings and quick service makes this a favorite for locals.

I popped in here one evening after a long day at camp war eagle... My son will be here next year and I knew he would be craving some good Mexican food like home - THIS IS IT! We had tried another place but this is great! Ended my search for Mexican food just like he would get at home.... More

one of my favorite places to eat Mexican in Auburn. Food is good and the prices are so reasonable. Servers go out of their way to please their guests.

You might have to wait in line to be seated here. Food is ok...nothing fantastic, but definitely not greasy spoon. Because it is so busy, service can also be iffy. You get good value for what you pay for.

This is the worst food I have ever eaten. Everything was highly salted, it was a poor effort to disguise that quality of the food. I had the fajita combination - over all it was very bad. The worst ingredient was and unrecognizable ground sausage that was burned highly salted. The waiter was pleasant and attentive. NEVER AGAIN.

We had fajitas for two. I would say the amount of food is really good. We could have probably eaten a single order together. The chips and salsa were pretty good. The waiter could have been a little better. It was like we were inconveniencing him every time we wanted something. It kept me from ordering any beer.

Surprisingly good Mexican food. Not sure why it's not on the map. Chile Rellanos are out of site. Prices good too. Don't miss this place. PS Latinos been here every time we've come.

I like eating Acapulco's. I always have great service. The food comes quickly. There is ample seating which often makes it a choice after football games.

A bit of a stretch to give this three buttons. Food is okay, but not outstanding. The service is adequate, as is the menu. Not a restaurant to avoid, but there are better Mexican restaurants in Auburn.

Thank Thomomys
