This is one of those sad situations where you want to really say the best things -- and there is no place to get the same food nearby-. Personally, I prefer the drive to El Rancho Grande in Middletown or the new El Piquante in Maineville/Hamilton Township the food is better in both of these places but they are NOT in Lebanon !
Acapulco has the very standard mexican fare and the pitchers of margaritas etc. The decor is muraled walls and plastic red booths- nothing exciting. The food is very standard mexican fare- although they DO have great fajitas for 2- very generous portions.
The waiters are so/so in english so be sure they get the menu number of the items you are ordering but overall they get the orders right. The food is prepared quickly as well and served piping hot. Be prepared for a lot of noise it is a loud place! Dress is very casual and it is a fun place to drop in with the kids or friends at the last minute. Prices are reasonable too. The place is really crowded on the weekends-so come early for dinner or you will wait.

All you can eat free salsa and chips. Monstrous margaritas that will surely do the trick ;) Highly recommend the chicken enchiladas monterrey and their choriqueso. service is great and the servers hustle! Even if there is a crowd, well worth the wait. Best mexican food in the county, best restaurant in Lebanon.

We drive from Cincinnati to eat at this restaurant. Enough said? Try the Chile Verde. Don't know what it is about this place......it's just good. Every time we've been there the place is packed. Look online for half-off 2nd entree coupons.

Been here at least 10 times. Large portions, very wide selection, huge margaritas (ask about size first before you order!). Staff has always been friendly & helpful, & they know how to move people in & out of this place. Never felt rushed before tho. Can be noisy. Different food & drink specials every night of the week. Worth the wait if there's a crowd.

This place is often packed, or at least very busy, even on weeknights, and for a good reason. Generous portions of delicious food, great salsa and chips, and fabulous drinks. No problem seating large parties of 15 (so we often arrange band booster meetings here!), and birthdays are fun. My favorite is the Pollo Loco - thinly sliced chicken cooked tenderly with mushrooms, onions, and con queso. Served with Mexican rice, salad, guac, sour cream, and tortillas. I can never eat it all, especially when I've enjoyed the chips and salsa first!

Favorite drink: Coronitas. 6 tiny Corona beers tipped with limes, and served in a Corona steel bucket on the table. They're so little, you don't realize it's quite a bit of beer when you drink them all! It's a fun presentation, and great for sharing.

1/2 of Lebanon can always be found here. I sometimes think our Mayor holds court here!
