Decent Mexican for New England!

They expanded the space a few years ago so getting a table is rarely an issue. Chips and salsa always come out quick, and their homemade salsa is always a bit different but always excellent. I usually get fish tacos or spinach and cheese burritos with black beans (hold the rice). Fast and friendly... read more

I went with my family and it was the worst service ever and the food wasn't that good either. I was Sunday night and there was only one waiter taking orders, a lot of employees "holding the walls", but he was the only one working. I guess because wasn't the other employees job to help us , they didn't care.... More

It is the only Mexican place in town. The food is average Mexican - nothing out of the ordinary and, I think their prices are a little too high. Service is always good and it is always busy. Nothing to write home about.

Acapulcos has been here in Stratford for a long time, and is still successful & a great go-to for a night out or even take-out! Stratford doesn't have that many great restaurants in comparison to other local towns, I am glad Acapulcos is here for a night out with girlfriends, or some family friendly take out for those nights you...

This place is good... just good. It's always busy, because it's the only standard Mexican (margaritas and chips) in town. But the food has often taken WAY to long to come to the table and the prices are too high. I'm glad it's there but it's nothing to write home about.

We love Alcapulcos... it's our go too for Mexican. They also have amazing Margaritas! Parking at times can be a pain, but food, and service is great and we have never had to wait to be seated or too long for our meal. . We have never had a bad experience.

Unlike other reviewers here, I have never been to Mexico to compare and contrast, so am perfectly content to report that everything I've ordered here has been delicious. Chips and salsa are provided the minute you are seated. The chips are crispy, the salsa thin but tasty. The menu is a big one, and everything we've had on this and... More

Viva la Mexico! Greeted and sat quickly. Sooooo much good food. We ordered the nacho supreme with chicken. Very good. Very filling. Next, sopa de tortilla which is a meal in itself. This tortilla soup had cubed chicken. It was excellent! Shrimp Acapulco had a lot of shrimp and rice. It was excellent. The taquitos with chicken were very good.... More
