Can't understand all the positive reviews the restaurant is mediocre at best nothing like authentic Mexican food just takeaway standard but I suppose some people don't care.

Poor service poor food seating a joke
Nothing else to say

Thank Freddie A

Dear Freddie,

We have been ' wrecking our brains' trying to recall an unhappy customer who didn't eat their food and seemed unhappy with our service and where they were seating. We simply are not aware of anyone. We always try our very best to please our customers but if problems are not brought to our attention we obviously cannot help fix them. Judging by your comments, that may not have been possible in any regard.

I am sorry that your visit was not a success and hope you can accept our sincere apologies.

The BFM loves real,genuine and freshly cooked Mexican food, just like I had in Mexico City and Cancun in 2012. So I went to Acapulco in Ballyhack back end of summer last year for lunch,as I had a craving for the authentic thing.

This is the second Acapulco in Ireland owned by Patricia Carson,the first being in Dublin and also the second one in Belfast (no relation).
It is decorated just like the restaurants in Mexico,so I knew I was in for a treat!!!

I ordered the spicy chicken taquitos (£5) and boy was it nice mmmmm!! The dish was spicy chicken in a tortilla with grilled cheese and a dollop of sour cream on top along side a mixed salad and a couple of nachos,just enough for a lunch and served piping hot very quickly. Not like the rubbery textured food served up in Mexican chain restaurants!! A gem of a place.

The restaurant is Open tue-sun from
12.00-22.00. So go on down and eat in or take away a piece of authentic Mexican.

Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao down now!!!

Food is very good! However..takeaway section is a joke! A friend and I turned up at 8.49 to get some food (claim to be open to 9) whilst i appreciate this isn't ideal timing...one expects to still get served as its advertised that its open to 9. A burrito takes about 2 minutes to make also. The door was lying wide open with the open sign visible on the door so there was already a contradiction. The staff member (who was doing nothing) took delight in telling me it was closed. Lovely way to treat a loyal customer! I will be giving my Mexican business to Boojum again as they value loyalty and adhere to advertised opening hours. None of their staff would ever do that in my experience. Shame as the food is authentic and of a high standard (even though portions are small)

I went for lunch with a friend as had heard good things and we were not disappointed. There was a good selection on the menu and the food was incredible. Couldn't fault the service. I will definitely be going back
