Acapulco - Downey
My experience was great our server was very attentive. I love it here the food and the ambiance is good. I enjoy bringing the family or friends.
It was good. The only thing is there was a DJ there that night and it was very loud. No way of talking to the person next to you. Other than that it was good.
Nice patio setting during covid. Heat lamps help stay warm.
The food and atmosphere was pretty good. The only issue I had was our waitress didn’t get us water. This should be the first and easiest thing to accomplish as a server. She didn’t come by and see if we needed anything else. We had to wave down another server to either get us something or to get our waitress. Other than those two things, it was a blast. I hope the nest time I come to you establishment, those things will be remedied. It would be a shame if it wasn’t. Thank you for the good food and good times!
Sunday brunch during Covid... I miss some of the pre-Covid brunch offerings (mini pan dulce & Mexican hot chocolate) BUT it is nice that your food is served to you by gloved employees...and now, when seated, you are served chips & salsa, chilaquiles and a fresh fruit bowl to share.
Just recommend more heating in this cold weather.
In order to meet Covid regulations tables are spaced out 6'
apart however 1-heat lamp in the middle of 2-3 tables is not sufficient
heating in the outdoor area when it's cold.
Yum and great service, nice setup during Covid times
Food wasn’t all that food service bs
We loved everything ! Food , music, vibe, service
Your staff was great!
Excellent customer service, thank you
Denise always provides great service
Did not appreciate the host and waiters wearing their mask under their nose . What’s the point of wearing a mask. Did not feel protected
Great drinks ok food
Fast and enjoyable service
The food was just not good
Great place to enjoy the night. Drinks are what I come for. Food is ok. Not the best
Loved the food love the service and the music was great I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants good food and great ambiance.
reserved a table on line and was seated right away. We have been going to Acapulco Downey on and off for over 10 years and is very satisfied with the quality of food and their service.
The service was terrible. Asked for water 5 times before we got it at the end of the meal, the server basically kept ignoring us mostly. The hostess said she would have someone move an umbrella, but never did. Would not return here.
Really good ambiance and really good happy hours prices and selection!!!
I got there early for my reservation. And I couple came up with no reservation and they sat them first, never coming back,
I was highly impressed with the service and food choices. They have expanded their outdoor patio with ample tables with umbrellas for shade. Our waiter was excellent! The food was very good. Cannot go wrong with the guacamole and chips and the steak and chicken fajitas; tender, flavorful! I also ordered the spinach enchiladas. Very different and tasty.
The food is still delicious. Servers are gracious and polite. Outside dining available. Covid restrictionists are being followed.
Absolutely disappointed with the service. The waitress made us wait for an hour to get a table even though I had made a reservation. And then when we finally got a table, we weren’t even able to get water or anything for another 15 minutes. The water was nasty literally and we got our food like 1 hour after we ordered it. By that time, we literally weren’t even hungry. And when we got our food, the waitress forgot to bring utensils and when we asked for them, she brought us a napkin and in the napkin was just a spoon and we had ordered fajitas, quesadillas and enchiladas. Like bro, how am I suppposed to eat an enchilada with a spoon???? Overall, I would never visit this place again.
Hostess was very rude.
I had a reservation for 9 didn’t get seated until 9:15, but was seating other people that got their after me.
When I confronted her about it she was so rude about it
Awesome place to get some quality Mexican food. I will say that it will be important to make a reservation ahead because it can get busy. The service was all around great, and I enjoyed their drink selection. Most likely will go back!
The place was very busy and our waitress did her best to accommodate my mother and I, after having to wait a long time for a cocktail and the check the manager on duty was extremely generous and comped our drink and brought us dessert to compensate for the time taken. We ended up having an really great night. Thank you Acapulco
I will come back because Luis Miguel is such a hard worker. Super attentive to everyone in is section.
So I have been going to Acapulco for about 25 years. I say generally I’ve had a good experience but last night was terrible. This isn’t even about all the restrictions about COVID, that’s not an issue. The service was terrible due to poor management. They had a Dj who was not following safety protocol by having no mask, drinking with other people who seemed to be know him and they were being rowdy. Then the manager showed up and took a shot with them, high five and no precautions. So my concern is not just the manager was drinking during work hours but he’s not practicing social distancing while serving other customers. He served our drinks and was going around other tables. If this is the manager, what kind of example is he setting for other employees!!
Our waiter was so friendly. I was feeling so sorry for him because he was running from one table to another table. We had a great time.
The staff was phenomenal! Everyone was very friendly and helpful!
It felt like I was on vacation eating outside with music playing.
Had a great dinner out doors, our server Lorena was awesome. Cadillac margaritas were perfect.
food was a little salty and we were not given utencils
They have a huge patio and seating in the parking lot with tables chairs and umbrellas....happy hour menu its great!
We had a reservation for a table but when we got there they didn't have it and couldn't seat us in the shade. We've never been so disappointed with Acapulco before and might not try again
Food was delicious. Restroom just need better sanitizing and cleaning
Our server Luis was amazing.Great service, very attentive. We will definitely be back.
