This was good food near the Motel 6. I ordered take out and the portions were good. It's worth stopping by when you're in the area.

Nice local Mexican restaurant. Drinks are always good and food always comes out piping hot. Nice people working there as well. The only negative is that the beef used in the beef dishes is usually tough so opt for chicken dishes as always good.

I rarely give bad reviews but this place was dreadful. The service was slow and lacked courtesy. We had Fajitas and they serve 4 shrimp total with the tails ( seriously?) the onions were burnt and it was subpar at best. I never thought anyone could mess up Mexican I was wrong. It might be inexpensive but you are getting... More

We were tired and saw this place across from the Sheraton where we were staying. I've had Acapulcos so many times all over Southern California and was surprised to see one here in MA. We had 8 people and were seated right away, good fast service. The food was ok, nothing special at all, just standard Mexican food. Since I'm... More

Stopped in on our way back from a trip and was very pleased. Chips and salsa were house made. Guacamole was good along with app. Both dishes we ate were pretty good. Margarita was also pretty good. Would come back again when in area.

This used to be much better place. The food quality was average. On their worst day even Chipotle has a better burrito.Salsa served tasted like Ketchup mixed with chunks of tomatoes. On a not so busy night took 15 minutes for server to show up because apparently computer was down. Scratching this place off of our list.

My go to place to eat when we are in town for soccer tournament, have been going there for a few years and it never dissaponts. Always sit in the bar area and the service is quick and friendly. Ordered the Tortilla Soup and Carne Asada and both were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The tortilla chips and salsa show up... More

Combo with cheese enchilada, crunchy beef taco & a beef burrito. The queso is delicious. I could literally drink the stuff. Tostada chips were crispy and fresh. Visited for lunch and the staff seemed hurried to the point they just dropped food off at the table without even stopping to check on drinks, etc. Atmosphere definitely appropriate. Building not new... More

I ordered Fajita salad with steak. The food quality is not as good as before. The steak was thin, dry and plain. I remember that I had it much better made before.

We come here a few times a year for a quick lunch. The food is always really fresh and the service is always attentive and friendly. I usually get the Acapulco Burrito with chicken and always have trouble finishing because there's so much food. Good chips and salsa to start the meals off. good place for pretty authentic Mexican in... More
