If you went here years ago and were not impressed - give it another try! New owners and the food and service are great. Usually takes 15-20 minutes for a take-out order and we’ve never had any trouble with wrong orders/missing items/etc. Portions are generous and not greasy tex-mex.

Customer service here puts the Ritz Carlton to shame. Of course they don’t have a ‘full service’ spa like the Ritz, but what they will do is greet you with that full smile cheek to G.D. cheekI swear, my coke never went below 60% filled. They are G.D. vigilant. And this shouldn’t be taken lightly. I drink coke (diet of course) like I’m Samantha on a first dateIf you want to served like you’ve never tasted nachos in your entire life, come to Cafe Acapulco

Very clean place and staff are great! I was going to give a 3 stars because I order fajita and beef was annn ok. The chicken fajitas where good a true 3.5 star. Reason for the 4 stars is the owner stopped at our table asked us how we liked the food and we where honest, he smiled was gracious and asked us to come back and try brisket fajitas or beef again when he had the beef he normally served. So that said we will go back thank you. Ohh bean dip here is good enough to slap your momma over, make sure Try the bean dip!

Ok. S T A Y A W A Y!!! BLACK MOLD WATER SUPPLY LINES, SMELLS LIKE A BAR/SEWER DRINKING WATER LINES ARE BOTH CRACKED & CROSS WATER CONTAMINATED. And also when you order fajitas as soon as they bring them to your table sizzling they pour soy sauce all over it. Eeww!! I'm talking about tasting like having a bucket of s*** your mouth. The CHIPS are cooked in old grease & the very tasteless, generic the cheese was not real like the imitation corn tortillas. Nothing good here I can see it all. The only reason I gave it one star was to activate my review.

We ate there for the first time this weekend. It was absolutely the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. The chips and salsa were delicious, one of the best things about it is that it had not been salted to the point where you can barely eat it like most Mexican restaurants. They serve a black bean dip with the salsa that was to die for. We had the guacamole salad as an appetizer it was awesome. For our entrée we had the fiesta plate it was delicious. The staff was very friendly and the place is spotlessly clean. It will be the only place I eat from now on when I want good Mexican food .

Our favorite restaurant! The staff and owner are so friendly, and the food is delicious and at a great price. The drinks are awesome and it’s almost always happy hour. The meat is so flavorful and tender. Some of our favorite dishes are: beef street tacos, fajitachanga, and chile rellenos.

Food was good, flavorful and plenty.But the wait time to get our drinks and order put in combined with the long black hair we found in our food overshadowed the taste of food.

This place is a hidden jewel. I'm so happy to find this place. From California to Texas I've missed the authentic taste of Mexican food and Salvadoran, and this place has both. Services is great and prices are good!

Hadn’t been there in YEARS but heard they were under new management from previous owners- DELICIOUS! I tried the pupusas as I had never had them before - SO GOOD. Next time I tried Mitchell’s plate - the sour cream chicken enchilada was one of best I’ve tried! Went back on a Friday to meet friends - margaritas were quite tasty. I’ll definitely be going back - soon!

Went there today with a friend of mine. Absolutely wonderful!!! The food was excellent and the restaurant itself was so clean and decorated just perfect. It is a nice place to go with a friend who lives here or an out of town friend. The service was wonderful. Unfortunately I accidentally got rid of my receipt and she had written her name on it. But she was there at noon today so it would be very easy to figure out who she is. Very upset I didn't keep my receipt but she was so friendly and so attentive. You just have to try this restaurant - I think you think you will love it all around.

I don't know what all these people ate that are raving about the food. My second visit was as bad as the last time. The "crispy" tacos were hard and stale; the Charro beans had about 5 beans in the bowl along with a zillion little pieces of bacon fat. The refried beans on my partner's plate looked like grey pudding. I scraped out the contents of the taco shells and ate that which was typical of any restaurant. We were two of maybe only one other customer....and this was lunchtime. Perhaps if I had just simply ordered fajitas (with no bean pudding & tasteless rice) it would be something to rave about. So sorry, Acapulco.

We ordered the Viva Alfaro (beef, chicken, shrimp fajitas) for 4. There was a ton of food. We all ate and had left over for only $40. We ordered to go and the food was ready on time and the staff was very friendly. While there I noticed the practices that the restaurant is taking to keep people safe from the pandemic. The waiter has a face shield, the tables were spaced apart. They even made sure to seat people as far away as possible (since they were busy at the time).

Jose, from San Salvador, bought this long-established restaurant about 3 yrs ago and while keeping much of the excellent menu in place, he made it Much Better and added a few wonderful San Salvadorian dishes. Prices are family moderate. Staff and Jose go out of their way to make sure your experienced is great, the food is superb and you keep coming back.

PapusasOrder them when you get there. They are 2.25 for one and take a while to make.My wife and I had a lunch there today - the waitress was absolutely wonderful. Great smile, awesome attitude, and truly made our experience memorable.My favorite menu item is the El Salvadorian Papusas. It reminds me of a cornbread pancake filled with pork and cheese. It's served with a cabbage something and a sauce. Add all three together and... it... is... awesome!!!On a warm Texas day - their patio offers a cool breeze with relaxed chairs to enjoy your venue.Seriously, every staff member I encountered were just so incredibly nice. I think I even met the owner :) This place has been under new management for some time now - and well, it shows.To Cafe Acapulco - Thank you. We will be returning soon.

We had a great time here! Delicious food and good margaritas for a good price. My only complaint would have to be the refried beans. They need a new recipe.

This by far is our favorite place to eat, the family owned atmosphere makes us feel at home every time we come in. It’s place that when you walk in they really do know your name and your family. It is nothing for us to come in and if it’s a slow night, Carissa or Jared will sit down and chat. We love the food, we have never had something we didn’t like, this is the only place I will try something new and I am never disappointed. If you want to relax and feel at home this is the place!
