Very popular place... food's ok.

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.

I find that Acapulco's Mexican Grill is consistently good. One of my favorites is the large burrito sutuffed with among other things, rice. Being a rice lover it really appeals to me. The salsa is great and the Chips are always warm. In addition, the staff is very, very friendly. Good food at an excellent price.

Have been to four different Mexican restaurant in Auburn/Opelika and I will say this one is the best. It is always full of people. The margarita's and the food is great. I always order the Burrito grande and I love it. I probably go there every three weeks with my friends to drink margaritas and beer, they usually have specials.... More

Food was good and very reasonably priced. Appetizer chips were warm and not greasy - very good. Accompanying salsa was not too spicy-hot, very mild. Service was good and accomodating. Seem to be able to handle groups of 6, 8 or more. Six in our party, and server got it right with no issue. Can get a bit noisy, but... More
