Food is average for americanized mexican fare. Seems the only drink they know how to make is a margarita. The gimlet I ordered was outside their skillset.

We have been here many times. A few times, a Mariachi band played, and we loved it. Other times, no band, but the service and ambiance were fantastic, and the food was good and hot. And flavorful. A good bet.

The waitress is the most rude person I've ever come in contact with in a restaurant. I know it's odd but I don't like my rice to touch a sauce. I asked for separate plates. She yelled at me because I was creating extra dishes for the dishwasher. After handing me the bill I waited 1/2 an hour for her... More

Since our daughter and son-in-law live near Amesbury, we pop in to Acapulcos nearly every time we visit them. On this visit, son-in-law's parents also joined us for a delightful evening of Mexican food, conversation, and laughs. We enjoy the service, the chicken enchiladas, and especially the margaritas! We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. We'll... More

I just dined here and it was just ok. They sat us immediately but the staff seemed distant from having true customer service. We asked the waitress for hot water with lemon and it took 3 times for her to get it right. I don't know if she spoke broken English but she finally got it right. The salsa was... More

This is my standard....when the day is long and I want something quick or to take home. A draft Mexican beer....yummy chips... salsa. The loaded nachos are to die for.....but really the star is the Chicken/Avocado tortilla soup. The absolute best!!

I took my family last week and the service was really poor. Our waiter gave me an attitude when I ordered a mexican beer off (listed right on the menu) and he told me that they no longer stock Bohemia. So then I ordered a Modelo-draft (also shown on the menu that he handed me) and he copped an even... More

As the only Mexican restaurant in Amesbury it is solid but it is really convenience that wins over food and price points. Avoid the chimichangas.

First visited in November last year and have been back on numerous occasions since. The food is always good and is very authentic (I have traveled on many occasions to various parts of Mexico on business). Looking at many of the negative reviews on this page I would say that most of these people should stick with McDonald's. The place... More

What a dismal excuse for a restaurant, let alone a Mexican restaurant. Honestly. The hostess was friendly enough though she wasn't at the hostess table when we arrived. She led us to a table on the other side of the bar and I appreciate the intention but I would rather have been on the bar side where there was at... More
