Dined here recently with a party of eight. All in all meals were reasonably priced and the food was good. Servers were wonderful and very attentive. Drinks menu was expansive and reasonably priced. Acapulcos came thru in the areas it needed to the most, food, price and service, my one complaint was the beer list, which was essentially a flavored... More

Huge portions if you buy the combo. Nachos were divine and the salsa sauce had a lovely kick. One of the party ordered a burrito and its the biggest thing one I had ever seen. Staff werent very interactive as expected more from other reviews.

The place looks a bit sketchy from the outside. The parking lot was always full so we gave it a try. Food was good and service was friendly. Would go back again

My friend and I meet here for lunch about every 6 weeks. There is always the scent of bleach lingering, which I suppose is better than some other smells. It's not exactly welcoming but at least it gives the impression of cleanliness. This lunch I tried the Camarones a la Mexicana ($14.95): Sautéed shrimp with fresh garlic, onions, tomatoes and...

I went here for lunch with my friend during our lunch break. We hurried up and ordered right away. The food came out pretty quick. We both had chicken quesadillas, which were delicious. Had to wait a while for our check. Other than that, everything else was very good.

Acapulcos served good, authentic TexMex style Mexican food at a reasonable price. We enjoyed the food - and the service was great. We lived in Texas so we know Mexican food :) I'd eat here again.

We waited about 15 minutes for our order to be taken and less than 5 minutes to have the food at the table. Fresh? I wouldn't think so. My girlfriend had the "Acapulcos Burritos" and I had the "Carne Asada." My plate consisted of 80% carne, 10% beans, 5% rice and 5% salad. I wouldn't go here twice in a... More

Do not be fooled by the fact that it is located in a small strip mall. We journeyed to Acapulcos one evening from the Homewood Suites in Canton MA. It was about a 15-20 minute drive. Once you enter the restaurant the decor transports you away to a mexican oasis. The staff was wonderful. We were seated quickly and the... More
