Elvith does a fabulous job at her Acapulco. I love their salsa not to mention their burritos, tacos and tostadas. Oh yummo.

My husband and I and our children all love Acapulco's. The service & food is always great. We really like the margaritas here as well.

I don't usually say this about Mexican restaurants outside of very large metro areas. This place is amazing. They have good authentic options on the menu along with salty options that most people think are authentic but are not. The service is fast and efficient but not very personal. I wasn't all that thrilled with the environment but that doesn't... More

We stopped on our way out west. Excellent authentic Mexican food. You can tell the owners take pride in their business. Very friendly and giving their patrons extra attention. Would highly recommend!

We were excited to eat at Acapulco after reading the reviews. I have to disagree with those that gave it high marks. The food was poorly prepared, not much favor at all.. I have had better at a fast food restaurant. There was little to no spice in the filling of the enchiladas. The plate of food was less than... More

We have never had a bad experience here. The service is always great and the food is so delicious! There are a few Mexican restaurants in Galesburg but Acapulcos is definitely my favorite.

We stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. Place is bright and cheerful on the inside. The service was great. Everything we had was very good. I did the Acapulco fajitas, the steak, chicken and shrimp were plentiful and vegies not cooked to death. I even had 4 tortillas instead of the typical 3. I would definitely recommend this,... More
