Fresh, delicious avocado salad, soft and tasty chocolate brownie with ice cream. Service was quick and unobtrusive.

We visited Acapulco's restaurant on a busy Thursday night. The food was average however the waitstaff appeared to be in a big hurry to move us in and out. I would have tried a drink and dessert if I hadn't felt so rushed Perhaps if it were a more leisurely dinner I would have liked it more.

I have been here 3 times, and while the restaurant is fun and festive, the food was just OK. The endless chips and salsa are great, and they will make fresh guac for you - yum! The entrees are just OK.

We decided to go to Acapulco last minute on Friday night. We usually go once or twice a month during the weekday to see our favorite server Juan. His service never disappoints. He is very nice and always makes sure that we have what we need. We enjoy the atmosphere, however Friday nights seem a little hectic. (Although they are... More

The restaurant had a nice Mexican feel with some nice music playing in the background. The menu... More

I had ordered lunch for a co-worker and I a couple of years ago. When I went to pick up our order, my debit card would not go through. It was a new account and there was a lock on my debit card for some reason. I was so embarrassed. The staff let me take our order and I gave... More

Very nice food. Interior is a bit dated. Very clean restaurant. I had avocado salad very good, but lettuce was a bit too wet so liquid all over bottom of plate. Had the chicken tortilla soup very filling and taste.. Decent drink menu. Mariachi on Saturday after 7pm

We were staying at the four points hotel while our floors were being replaced. We were in the mood for some tortilla soup and some wine and we decided to go to Acapulco's plenty of parking and decent size indoors. A little dated the furniture and decorations. Soup apps were good and service was pleasant Overall worth while especially for... More

We go to the Acapulco's in Needham alot and this one once in a while, they're the same chain. You can always get a good cold draft beer and the kids really like it and choose it regularly as a family destination, mostly because it's the most convenient Mexican place for us, and they can accommodate gluten free with corn...

I have eaten at this and a few other Acapulco's in the area, I have been going to this one for about twelve years. The service is always warm and friendly and everything I have ordered has been very good. They have great combo plates and the free homemade salsa and chips are the best around. The only complaint I... More
