Acapulco's has been in this location for years. The staff is very nice and helpful. The décor is cute Mexican. The food is pretty good. The pricing very fair.

I've been here maybe 15 times over the years. It's not great, but it's very good and it's comfortable (and obviously I keep going back!)

The staff is very attentive and friendly. They make you feel very welcome. That's a plus right there. The food is tasty, very delicious and served really fast. The best guacamole I have ever had is right here in this restaurant. The desserts are exactly what you expect. Now you have to try them all, so make sure everyone on... More

The food is good and prices are reasonable. They greet and seat you quickly. A nice quiet getaway for people who enjoy Mexican food.

Food is average for americanized mexican fare. Seems the only drink they know how to make is a margarita. The gimlet I ordered was outside their skillset.

We have been here many times. A few times, a Mariachi band played, and we loved it. Other times, no band, but the service and ambiance were fantastic, and the food was good and hot. And flavorful. A good bet.

The waitress is the most rude person I've ever come in contact with in a restaurant. I know it's odd but I don't like my rice to touch a sauce. I asked for separate plates. She yelled at me because I was creating extra dishes for the dishwasher. After handing me the bill I waited 1/2 an hour for her... More

Since our daughter and son-in-law live near Amesbury, we pop in to Acapulcos nearly every time we visit them. On this visit, son-in-law's parents also joined us for a delightful evening of Mexican food, conversation, and laughs. We enjoy the service, the chicken enchiladas, and especially the margaritas! We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. We'll... More

I just dined here and it was just ok. They sat us immediately but the staff seemed distant from having true customer service. We asked the waitress for hot water with lemon and it took 3 times for her to get it right. I don't know if she spoke broken English but she finally got it right. The salsa was... More

This is my standard....when the day is long and I want something quick or to take home. A draft Mexican beer....yummy chips... salsa. The loaded nachos are to die for.....but really the star is the Chicken/Avocado tortilla soup. The absolute best!!
