Located in downtown Franklin (bad parking area) - good for a quick lunch of decent Mexican food. No surprises on the menu - fully predictable. A solid step up from "Taco Bell" but not as expansive as other local Mexican places "over the border in Bellingham". Somehow the food aroma that settles in the entrance is not the best first...

I came here with coworkers, my expectations were not really high but it was actually pretty good. I had enchiladas at lunch and they were tasty. Only criticism was someone at the next table ordered a fish dish that smelled really strongly, and not a pleasant fishy smell either. Service was good and friendly.

I go here regularly and the food, drinks and service are always good. Servers are friendly and the food is always fresh and hot. Love the homemade chips and salsa too.

If you want "taco bell" type food you'll love this restaurant. If you want good Mexican food go elsewhere. The ONLY thing g here that's good are their homemade Tortilla chips. Dinners are expensive,the food is sparse and the flavors are just plain bad Mexican food. Hadn't been there in 3 years and it'll be at least another three or... More

We started going there years ago and it was great and authentic. A while back I think their popularity got to them and they sacrificed authenticity and good quality for increased prices, decreased portions and mediocre food.

Pleasant find. On our way home from Cape Cod and decided to stop and have lunch in Franklin, Massachusetts. Found Acapulcoso on Main Street and knew we found a great Mexican restaurant as soon as we walked in. There was a large Mexican/American family having a feast. Was greeted warmly by someone, I believe was the owner, in Spanish. The... More

What I love about Acapulco's is the consistency. Service is good and the food is always great and reasonably priced. They don't give you huge oversized meals but you get plenty and we often take home left overs. The wine is reasonably priced too.
