They have three locations. The newest one is by far the cutest. Nice patio and views. Only wine and beer. Food good but rather pricey for Mexican food. Service great. Friendly staff.

I grew up in So Calif, so I know mexican food. This is the place we have gone for years to get our mexifood fix. We've tried the others in the area, but they don't compare. Great service and the prices are reasonable. This goes for all 3 of the Acapulcos in the area. Soldotna, Kenai, and the new one... More

The experience can be a bit time consuming and if quiet is what you want this is not the best place. But the food is good and there is plenty of it.

If you are looking for some great Mexican food I highly recommend Acapulco as your choice. Chips and salsa get things going. Food is fast. Wait staff is friendly.

Lastly he never came to bring us the check. I had to tell the waiter. The waiter asked what we ordered because he did not... More

We have eaten here several times over the past few months. The food is ok, but it tends to be greasy. The real problem is the service. Staff is just inattentive. When you have to leave your table to go get water, or track somebody down to get napkins, it is beyond poor service. And we are usually there in... More

This is by far the best place in town to eat Mexican food. Fresh made, not bagged or boxed like Don Jose's. The staff takes the time to get it right the first time, and they even do special equests when it's not busy.

Thank AKDave1
