I have been going here for years . Very nice, friendly, and attentive staff. Consistently good food and affordable. Go on a Sat night when there are live musicians strolling about. Hardly ever a wait for a table.

Went with some co-workers for dinner and the place was semi full. The waiter seemed super rushed and realized he was also the bartender so he was rushing to get everyone's orders in and drinks prep'd. I had the fish taco's which were OK. The plate also included rice and refried beans which didn't look or taste good. Someone at... More

Had tacos and burritos. Very good. Refined beans and rice were tasty. Chips and salsa wee average. The old guy is very pleasant. I'd definitely come back.

Great place. Love the owner! He is so friendly. He makes the best margaritas in the area! The food is Mexican style comfort food at a great price!

disinterested hosts, sadly emply restauant should have been the tip-offs. Nothing seemed clean, our meals had the appearance of mushy pet food. Nothing was fresh. No taste. We couldn't even make a polite effort to eat more than a few bites. The waiter removed our five plates without asking if everything was ok. No inquiry about whether we liked the... More

I live right around the corner from the Acapulco and have been there many times. It's got good, reliable, authentic mexican food, nothing fancy or tex mex but certainly an OK place for a meal in the neighborhood. They do on weekend evenings have roaming guitarists singing mexican songs which can be fun or frustrating as it sort of brings... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct community unique and separate from the bustle of other areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful, large green space well worth a visit if you venture to JP.
