Probably the best Mexican food in this area, in my opinion. It was very flavorful. I had the chimichangas, 1 beef (shredded beef not ground) and 1 chicken. Both tasted very good with the right amount of spice and the cheese sauce is awesome. It was a large plate of food and they didn't skimp on the meat. She had... More

I was there for a private party. Appetizers were very good, food was good and very generous portions, Minnesota-style spiciness. (not at all spicy. ) Matt was an excellent server.

On the holiday weekend this place was quiet. We stopped early evening for drinks and some food. The service was very good. The food only so so. We like their location in Stillwater a lot better.

I ordered the lunch chicken chimichanga my partner ordered the chicken fajitas. We also ordered some cheese dip. The food was delivered hot and delicious. Service could have been a little better since they were not extremely crowded. I would recommend to anyone in the area wanting good Mexican food.

We decided to order our food for pick up since we have a young child it's just easier to eat at home. ... the host was rude to my husband and then the food was terrible - there was hardly any meat on my tacos, I got hard instead of soft shells & the rice had no flavor. Ridiculous!

I live in the area and never really went there before, until the last 3 months. My kids live the queso dip and chips and I love the fish tacos. Their prices are hard to beat in the area and the atmosphere is a lot better than the chain restaurants in the area.

We love Mexican food (from CA, NM), yet have lived in MN for 20 yrs so have tempered our expectations. We decided to try Acapulco in Maplewood. This was a big mistake. We actually asked them to take 2 of our dishes back (enchiladas and a relleno) as they were so salty as be be inedible. The other food was... More

I'm a fan of Acapulco in Stillwater. This one was nice and staff was friendly. The food offered is pretty basic and large quantities. It's worth a shot.

Pretty Americanized Mexican Food, but still very good. Prices are reasonable, and the staff was well trained. No complaints, and we will be back when in the area!

First of all, service was very slow. Took over 15 minutes to get a margarita. The place was busy but not THAT busy. We ordered fajitas with chicken and steak. We were served fajitas with shrimp. Luckily we saw it was wrong right away since my husband is allergic to shrimp and eating this could have sent him to the... More
