Review №1

This was our first time eating here and I was definitely not disappointed!! Delicious, hot and flavorful for every bite. The assistant manager was extremely friendly and had a great sense of humor. He made it very evident he enjoyed his job and interacting with customers. I can't wait for the new location to open in Charlotte!

Review №2

Before the pandemic and all during the crisis, nothing but professional, friendly service. Food is DELICIOUS! Thank you Acapulco staff!

Review №3

Justin the server was AMAZING so polite and quick. Food was so good. Well seasoned , well prepared, and over the top presented. If u have chance EAT HERE!!!!!

Review №4

They make a great home made guacamole. I order it with just the plain tossed salad. Muey bueno. And the house margarita on the rocks is the best in town. I think this is the very best Mexican restaurant in the greater Lansing area for sure.

Review №5

Went to the new location in Charlotte. Very pleased with the service and food. Pablo's burrito was excellent. Will definitely be going back.

Review №6

So good! Must go! Best Mexican food on this side of town. I just discovered it today too! After coming to Frandor shopping center a bunch. Haha.Good work!

Review №7

We enjoyed our meal immensely! We were waited on promptly and our meal was served !!! We were very impressed.Their homemade chips and salsa were on point. The desserts were delicious. Our server was outgoing, and not just some order-taker with no personality. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean and tidy.In short, this is our new favorite place for Mexican / Tex-mex food! After the dismal experience we had last at El Azteco, we didn't know where to go next. We found our answer at Acapulco Mexican Grill! We will be there at least weekly -- if not more!

Review №8

Very good Mexican food. Dinner took a bit long considering the restaurant wasn't packed. Overall a good experience & we'll be back. Returned with my daughter a couple months later and the service was painfully slow.. Again it wasn't that busy. I revised my review to 3 stars.

Review №9

Last two times turned me off from this place. Second to last time, my vegetarian dish was cold. They remade it for me to take home and I said I would try again because prior to that I had enjoyable experiences. So I tried again today. My vegetarian plate was lukewarm. I lost my appetite for Acapulco. Maybe they're not cooking vegetarian dishes to order anymore?

Review №10

Went in to maybe get takeout as we had been misinformed the outdoor seating was open. Then they opened the patio after the manager was called out (we did not ask for the manager they handled it) so they did end up helping and the food is amazing! Worth the price. Glad we went back in and they really tried to help take care of us so we would def go back.

Review №11

Definitely best Authentic Mexican food around!! Been around 86 Countries and including Mexico. But I have to say that the food here was delicious and friendly staff over all.

Review №12

We had a long wait for service-- once our server began, it was fine. The food came quickly and was delicious. We ate outside on their pleasant patio.

Review №13

Enchiladas verdes with rice & beans is my go to. Always fast, kind, service. Food is consistently good!

Review №14

Phantastic place. Awesome food. Great atmosphere. Perfect service.

Review №15

Not busy. There was 6 in our party so we did talk some before we were ready to order. Server came right over and wanted to know if we were ready to order and we said not yet. I asked for a soda at that time. After 20 minutes he returned and we ordered and I asked for a soda again. Food prep and service was quick! Still no soda. So after about half thru our meal he walked by and I asked for a soda again. Finally got it. So the food and price... So for $20 (with tip) the Chimmy was pretty small and loaded with onions. Had an decent helping of beef, but no cheese or anything else in it. Had some very thin white cheese on top of it. About half a cup of rice and a smear of beans sprinkled with white cheese. Nice dollop of sour cream and guac. Chips and salsa were good, but never offered to refill either, or refill any drinks. Would I return for a second time or refer a friend? Nope. Sorry, not Sorry.

Review №16

A hidden gem! The service was great, the food was timely and was so very delicious! We will definitely be coming back whenever we are in this area and will recommend!!

Review №17

The food was really, really good. The layout was so,so. Decent prices, great food!

Review №18

I enjoyed each item ordered of the menu and the staff is always kind. The margaritas are in point! See you soon again!

Review №19

First visit of this unique Mexican restaurant and try their interesting dish Shark Tacos. It was delicious shark tacos, tastes like having fish tacos and I liked it. Playing Mexican music and kinda little loud for my opinion. They're fast serve food after placed order. I'm satisfied.

Review №20

Tables spaced apart appropriately. Food was very good. Server was very good, polite. Will return! Thank you!

Review №21

Very nice place good wait staff! We had lunch. Omg it was soooo yummy! Huge portions too.Wehad lunch at 12pm.Was out by 1230p.

Review №22

First time visitor. Will definatly be returning. Good staff, great food, and the fried ice cream was to die for..

Review №23

Great food and service. I've had a lot of bad experiences with unenjoyable Mexican cuisine and this place did not disappoint.

Review №24

Best burritos in Lansing, recommend the burrito california, or burrito churiz! Amazing! Great service and very busy!

Review №25

Even before coronavirus, the staff has struggled with pick up orders, at least 50% of the time my food is cold as I leave. Please get a second register, or prioritize people in order rather than seating 10 people while we wait for food that's been done for 10 minutes.

Review №26

My husband and I love to frequent this restaurant. We have never had a bad meal and quite pleased with the precautions they have taken during the pandemic

Review №27

It may count as two visits. My first and last. The top shelf margarita was disappointing. The food was fine, for the price I expected more wow.

Review №28

This place was awesome! Food was great, wait staff was phenomenal! Guacamole Mexicano was great! Enchiladas were super good too!

Review №29

Cali burrito is absolutely incredible. Service is always friendly and food gets to the table quickly! A top 3 sit down mexican restaurant in the area!

Review №30

Oh my gosh Love this place! Great food and service.

Review №31

My friend and I had dinner at your restaurant today. I arrived first, there were 2 ladies ahead of me. One gentleman asked us both how many? We both said 2. He replied give me 5 minutes. 10 minutes later he sat the first 2 ladies, then told me again it'll be 5 minutes. 10 minutes later be sat me. My friend showed up, we ordered our drinks and food. I told our waiter that I will need an order to go when it's time to leave. We were there for quite awhile. Our waiter brought more water, he asked my friend if he would like some water. My friend said yes. He never got his water, I gave him 1/2 of mine. The waiter never returned to our table and I was not able to order a take out for my husband who was at home waiting for his food. We waited 30 plus minutes for the waiter. There was a large party in the same area as us and there were 3 waiters helping that table. I am very disappointed and unsatisfied with my first time experience at your restaurant. I left and called and ordered my husband's food from Los Tres. Food was ready in 10 minutes no issues. I have always gone to Los Tres, but wanted to try your restaurant. Huge mistake.

Review №32

Great food, great service and eould recommend trying it if you haven't already !

Review №33

Ordered steak fries for an appetizer they were season very well mouth watering steak that was not overcooked herbal. My son also ordered the state burrito hot fresh if you're looking for something new to do in the East Lansing Frandor area Acapulco is a great spot with a great lighting and I ordered the peach house margarita delicious not too much ice. Service was fast and friendly.

Review №34

They are following CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of their customers. Great food their Mole and Tacos...AND Margheritas.

Review №35

I am very impressed with the quality of the food, location and wait staff. The food was phenomenal. The chips and salsa are quite good (the salsa is a little different, but the chips have a perfect light fry to them). The service was fantastic. Finally, the food portion to price ratio is fabulous. I will defiantly be coming back, and to anyone that likes Mexican food, I recommend this to you.

Review №36

Food was fantastic. Margaritas, too!Ask for Rafael!

Review №37

Delicious and amazing customer service. There was a mix up with my uber eats order and the gentleman that I talked to at the restaurant had my food made again and brought it right to my door quickly. They are amazing! Thank you sir!

Review №42

Salsa is always fresh!! The food is authentic and the customer service is great!!! Thank you Acapulco for striving for excellence!!

Review №43

Wow... Have not had these flavors since my last trip to Mexico. Not sure if they use family recipes for their sauces but wow. Phenomenal service, clean restaurant, great drinks. Had to buy the chef a shot of tequila. Very good.

Review №44

The food is wonderful, big portions, and the price is reasonable! The wait staff is remarkable; very friendly, attentive, and very fast! The decor is nice too. Very nice overall experience. Will definitely go again.

Review №45

It was ok. I wasn't too thrilled about the meal. The flys inside of the restaurant made it a little uncomfortable.

Review №46

My first time going and I am not disappointed at all. The food is very good and hot. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and very pleasant. No doubt a great spot to eat.This plate is called Fajita Pina.

Review №56

I enjoyed my eating experience at Acapulco Mexican restaurant, I had the Enchilada Suizas it was very delicious, but somewhat salty for my taste, the restaurant is very busy in the evening hours, the service was great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very clean and the crowd is young and trendy, and diverse, looking forward to returning soon.

Review №57

Great foods and service :)

Review №58

This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. They have American Mexican food. They also have the authentic food lists the correct spices. I particularly liked the Cancun enchilada. Even though it is extremely busy. They still have great customer service.

Review №59

I love this place. The food is fresh and fast. The portions are ample and the dining room is nice and roomy. Courteous staff.

Review №60

Wait staff was awesome sadly 4of us ordered the taco salad (2 beef & 2 shrimp) and none of us will reorder them. Very soggy no flavor.

Review №61

Delicious food, great margs. Generous portions too, I usually go home with leftovers. The staff is very friendly and attentive. For an area like Lansing that has lots of mexican food, Acapulco sticks out as one of the absolute best!

Review №62

Best restaurant in Lansing hands down! Will be eating here on a weekly basis! Great food, Great drinks and a Great atmosphere.

Review №67

Food was ok not bad but let's get to the reason of a 2 star review. No service my drink has been empty for bout 15 minutes and they were slow to even take our order. Save yourself headache go to Cancun other side of Lansing magnificent service and food.

Review №68

Amazing, authentic food, with a huge menu. Service is friendly and very fast in spite of the restaurant being packed. Check out the Ultimate Margarita; perfect with your dinner! Our server Marco was friendly and very attentive; ask for him!

Review №69

Best chips/salsa and fajitas ever!

Review №70

Great food always enjoyed

Review №71

I'm an American and truly don't know what would make Mexican food "authentic." That said, I do know what makes food delicious, and so does this place! I'd never had shark tacos before, but I know I will again. In fact, everything I've tried here has been top-shelf, as has the service. This restaurant is an instant favorite for me.

Review №72

Best Mexican restaurant in the Lansing area. HANDS DOWN! The service, drinks, food and atmosphere met and exceeded my expectations.

Review №73

Amazing Mexican restaurant, must try if you're in East Lansing! Huge portions (got one of the burritos and could barely finish it), friendly helpful staff, and good vibes.Relatively cheap given the general ambience and portions served. Would visit again and definitely recommended for someone new to EL.

Review №74

Great beer selection.

Review №75

Me and my family went here and the feel, food, and service was outstanding! We will be back for sure. The look is new and updated not like all the other Mexican places in town that all loom the same with poor service. Acapulco is the New Mexican food place in town....

Review №76

Good food. Long wait time. Got super drunk after one margarita there. They didnt measure the ingredients correctly on a busy day.

Review №81

Service was slow forgot drinks for while and was out of horchata then forgot to tell me food quality and taste can improve

Too noisy to allow easy conversation. Food was a bit cool, which may have affected the taste.

Review №83

Review №89

So fresh and tasty. Fast service, beautiful patio.

Review №90

Fast service. Great carnitas! Nice waitstaff. Open and bright. Reasonable prices. But my favorite is the margaritas!! Try the house Margarita on the rocks with salt and a hot plate of carnitas. You can't go wrong. I believe it is handicapped accessible too.
