My girlfriend and I have eaten there several times. The food is always good (and too much), and the service friendly.

First of all, best mexican restaurant in Etown. Disappointed that "best" does not pertain to to go orders. I do not dine in anymore. Got out of the habit due to Covid. Wife does not eat salsa (still love her though) so have no use for mild anything. Specifically order no mild salsa 1 extra hot salsa. Get it maybe 1 out of 5 times. Even if you ask when you pick up your order, still get 1 hot salsa 1 throw in trash salsa. Today ordered 2 extra hot salsa. Order 591. Got there and added cheese sauce to my order. While I was waiting for the queso, I checked my order. I was told by 2 employees sitting in a booth I needed to pay for the order and make sure that was my order before I opened it. Of course this was after I paid for my order and was told this was my order. 1 hot salsa 1 throw in trash salsa .When the server brought out the queso, I was told by another server I did not order or pay for queso (of course this was after I ordered and paid for queso) I informed server I ordered 2 extra hot salsa. Was informed that it was in the bag. Checked the bag, queso (huge), chips (did not order), 2 salsas (got home, 1 hot salsa 1 throw in trash salsa), I only order dishes with ground beef, not a fan of shredded beef, Ordered combination dinner (burrito, enchilada and chimichanga). Burrito awesome, enchilada even better, chimichanga shredded beef. 3rd or 4th time ordered ground beef, got shredded. If you are dining in, highly recommend. If you are ordering carry out exactly as it is on the menu, highly recommend. If you are ordering carry out and want something special, would recommend Taco Bell. Love this place but think I will try Las Chalupas next time.

Been here many times and tried several of the menu items. Everything I have had has been delicious with generous portions. The service is fast, the price is reasonable, the beer is cold and the waiters are attentive throughout your whole meal. There are a number of Mexican restaurants in Elizabethtown, this is the best one.

I’ve been a regular customer of El Acapulco for years. I won’t be back after today. Finding chicken in my veggie burrito was unacceptable. I mentioned it to the server who did nothing. I asked him if they grill the veggies and the chicken together - he says they don’t. Can’t say I believe it. I watched him go speak to the manager and he was using the same hand motions - he was telling him. Great, right? They’re gonna do something is what I’m thinking. Nope. Brings me my bill & I was charged full price for something I couldn’t eat. Went to the register where the gentleman asked if everything was ok, I let him know that it wasn’t to which he replied that “he” meaning the server, could’ve brought me something else, he’s sorry. First, No one offered to replace anything when I was at my table. And at this point, no, I didn’t want new food - I don’t trust the integrity of this restaurant. All I got was a sorry as he charged me full price $11.95 for a burrito I couldn’t eat. This was the third straw for me. The first - the “vegetarian” menu isn’t vegetarian!!! A server last month told me they make the rice with chicken broth. A time prior to that my checkbook fell from my purse while I was there & while I DO very much appreciated the restaurant finding my checkbook & holding it (I was there in a Friday, realized my checkbook was missing on Monday) They had my checkbook with my name, address, phone number and everything and didn’t call to let me know it was there. I called backtracking my steps and discovered they had it. Their customer service sucks.

Great place to eat and socialize. We love visiting with Juan and his service is always impeccable! We like to share the Baja fajitas. When I get a carry out in colder months, I enjoy the chicken soup. Soup is deliciously different!

Lunch was very good. Food was served hot and fresh, portion size was really big! Place is dated, and maybe not “sparkling”, but the food is good!

Great fresh Mexican food for lunch or dinner. We have never had a bad meal here. Love the Pollo Loco and the Chicken Chimi. My husbands favorite is the Chicken Cancun. Can't go wrong here!

The food is delicious, the portion sizes are fair. Overall this is one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area, much more authentic than many others, however, the service can leave something to be desired. It's hit or miss on the service aspect, other than that I recommend

We went in the middle of the day. There was no wait for stable. Server was quick with drinks. Many good options. Food served quick. Overall it was very good. I would go back, not spicy at all.

My family and I are regulars here and I can't believe I waited this long to write a review. Amazing service with the nicest waiters I've ever had before. The food is extremely delicious and has good flavor. The chips and salsa are better than any I've ever had before. Also, the environment is very pleasing just to see you and other families have a great time. I would recommend you visit here as it is an amazing restaurant overall.

This was our first experience at this restaurant. I really enjoy and desire to give good reviews but sadly I can't do so. I will give the positives first. 1. Clean bathroom. 2. Generous portions 3. Nice presentation. 4. Nice decor and seating. Negatives 1. Slow service. 2. Hairs in my wife's food which turned everyone's stomach. 3. Chips tasted stale. 4. The mild salsa had little taste. We have no plans to return. In fairness to the restaurant, they didn't charge for my wife's meal, but didn't seem too concerned(my perception).

We eat here fairly often. My wife loves their hot salsa and chips. Try the Huevos con chorizo or Chori Pollo, you won't regret it.
