We eat here with our kids all the time. The staff is very friendly with the kids. The food (Mexican) is delicious and very reasonably priced. Our favorites are the nachos and steak tacos.

This place closed down for a while, but it's once again open for business. I live directly across the street, so I've been to this place a number of times and was looking forward to making it a regular stop. Unfortunately, the moderately-priced, mediocre food is overshadowed by the surprisingly service issuesf. I've sat and waited for 15 minutes in an almost empty restaurant before I was even offered glass of water, let alone to have our orders taken. I've never seen this place really busy, but it must be a madhouse if they can't handle 3 tables at once. The food is subpar, but relatively fresh. The chips and guacamole are the best thing on the menu, but expect everything else to be missing something. That something is usually salt. In the case of the burgers, the juices are squeezed out onto the grill -leaving it dry and bland (not to mention that they refuse to dress your burger for you, so if you're on the go you'd better like your burger plain). Their coleslaw is completely overpowered by horseradish. But none of these things made me decide to never return. The incident was over some simple eggs. I asked them to be cooked a certain way and they weren't. They did not remedy the situation. They don't care about their service. They don't care about their quality. They don't care about their customers.

With the frequency I eat here, I have put the Acapulco employees' children through college. I live around the corner, and I couldn't be happier. The other reviews touch on the main points--delicious guac (make sure you get the homemade salsa with it too!), great value... The perfect place to get your grub on! They've got gringo and mexican beers, and a big selection of other drinks including Jarritos and Mexi-cokes. Whenever my friends come by my hood, I am almost guaranteed to be eating Acapulco, since they love it, so I'm glad they have a pretty sizable menu to keep me from getting bored. Is it pure-bred authentic? Probably not, but given that the entire staff is mexican, it's authentic enough for me. One last thing, if you're starving but don't have a lot of cash, the burrito is right on!

This place has really good food for great prices. The staff is polite and it is kid friendly. Dont know how authentic it is, but they do have mexican cokes.

I have never eaten at Acapulco, I am sure the food is every bit as yummy as you all have stated, but: Authentic cuisine is just that, it represents the cuisine as you would find it in the country of origin. Having traveled extensively through Mexico I have yet to find burritos, fajitas, or quesadillas. These dishes are no more Mexican than apple pie. They are, however, Tex-Mex, and very yummy in their own right. Before you decide something is or isn't take a quick look around the country. Lastly, finding those dishes in a tourist area does not make them authentic. That is done for tourists that want to think they are eating the cuisine of the country, and don't know any better. BTW: you should know I grew up in Southern California, we have the best Mexican restaurants in the world, outside of Mexico. But then we have a population that is comprised of about 15 million latinos, most of them Mexican. Yes we have really bad Mexican as well, but we also have some of the most amazing Mexican there is. For further edification check out Diana Kennedy or Rick Bayless. Hasta luego

Great diner w/ benefit of having real mexican food. guac is awesome. pork tacos, huaraches, and other mexican goodies are nice, simple, and tasty. breakfast is bang on. their omelettes are great, and they dont skimp. you really get your money's worth. that being said, the service is just abysmal (dine in- delivery is fine). but hey, it's cheap.

The guacamole here is seriously delicious! And totally cheap for a generously sized portion. If you want some great guacamole at a good price, skip Bonita and come here!
