Acapulco is a local chain, with the Lebanon location being my favorite due to its size and large parking lot. I've eaten here multiple times for both lunch and dinner, and have never had a bad meal. The menu is extensive, and reasonably priced. Serving sizes are quite generous, so no one should leave here hungry. I've eaten a far... More

We stopped last weekend after a day at the nearby Renaissance Festival for a nice dinner. Our server, Efrain, was the most pleasant, hardest working server we've encountered in a long time. He was attentive, courteous, & remembered precisely our special requests. Everything was plated promptly, served piping hot, & tasted just right after a long day outside in the... More

The girlfriend & I ordered a Pollo Loco, Coctel de Camaron, and a Large Margarita. The margarita was huge. I'm glad we split it. The Pollo Loco was good, I would recommend it. Our favorite though was the Coctel de Camaron. I was expecting a bunch of shrimp in normal cocktail sauce. Not at all. We got a bunch of... More

I really like the salsa here. Others like the salsa well enough that they sell it on the way out. This trip I have no idea what I ordered was called. I looked for online menu, but no online version of the menu is close to the real menu. I had the chicken and shrimp dinner pictured. I liked it... More

I have spent many years in Texas, and I am picky about my Mexican food. This wasn't perfect (for me), but was very good! I had the taco/enchilada/rice combination. Great cheese, nicely spiced, excellent fluffy rice. The enchiladas and taco on this combination are just straight beef, but very good. My husband had the Texas fajitas which had shrimp, chicken...

My daughter just moved to this area and we were thrilled to find such a delicious Mexican restaurant in the area. Friendly service with great food and prices. Chips and salsa are yummy and the pollo fundido was delicious!

This place is the best! Lots of meat, cheese, and seasoning. Their plates are never skimping on the good stuff. So much flavor! The margaritas are awesome and always strong. The staff is always friendly and busting their butts to take care of everyone. Great service every time we go.
