“The only real Mexican food in central Mass!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

From the moment you walk in you can tell it's going to be a real mexican experience. The decor is typical of a mexican restaurant in the states, but the food is anything but. A lot of care is taken to ensure that the flavors are authentic and the spice is just right. The fish tacos are a shining example of the type of food that you would find down south. There is nothing on the menu that you won't enjoy if your passion is authentic mexican. The kitchen staff is also open to new ideas on their dishes, so if there's something a little different that you would like, let them know! And try the margaritas! Best around...

“Average mexican fare”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The margarita's are very pricey. But good. There is no view since this is right on route 9 and the pike. The food is your typical burritos and enchiladas with rice and beans. The food is decent but for the price you do feel as if you could have made better yourself.

“Closest thing to true Mexican flavors in MetroWest”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

It is hard to find the flavors of Mexican food when you are Mexican American living on the East Coast. It can be fusion (cuban/Puerto Rican, etc). Mexican food is actually very simple and can be overdone. Acapulcos seem to capture the simplicity and the Albondiga's soup is the closes to grandmas i can find. Now i wish they would do something with the outside of their buildings. Really, it needs a lot of work.

“Good reliable food”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Good food, great margheritas. Doesn't change menu but that may be because choices are reliably good.

“Great bar service”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We know that we can always drop in at Acapulco's and rarely have a wait for a table. The margarita's & chips/salsa are great. While the rest of the menu is typical, it's always consistent.
