Our server was great and made my mom’s birthday even better by singing happy birthday and bringing a delicious piece of flan.

Worth the drive from the I.E. for their unlimited brunch menu and bottomless mimosas. Great food and excellent service.

2nd time here, food is overall good for the price. Wish they'd let us serve ourselves during brunch, but other than that, very good place for brunch.

When we arrived with my grandma who is obviously disabled, he tried to sit us far away from the entrance. We asked for the closer to able so she wouldn’t have to walk but I would think that you would offer that initially.The service was a little slow. The drinks were weak but he gave us a shot so that was nice. The food was amazing! Fresh and pipping hot. Overall it was ok

Got there and learned they offer no menu on Sundays, just $30 pp buffet (like El Torino we learned on Sundays). Open Table should obviously note this major difference for these restaurants’ Sunday menus!!!!

Food was mediocre at best. Kids steak fajitas were hard as rocks and cold. Completely inedible. Lack of servers made service difficult. Needs a whole new revamping before we come back.

Seated rather quickly with reservations. Pretty crowded .. Table had fold up chairs, very uncomfortable. Loud and noisy, almost had to yell to be noticed. No set up, no service (Until we asked for it, told "it's a buffet" - DUH!!) How about a server asking us about drinks and a set up at the table??? Food stations were all over restaurant .. some outside, some inside. No idea where to go for selection of food (Egg dishes, desserts, tacos, enchiladas, etc.). Usually only had one food preparer to serve or prepare your selection (waffles, etc.). LONG LINES TO WAIT TO BE SERVED - OVER 20 MIN. RIDICULOUS. Manager gave us food coupon for return visit after we complained how horrible the brunch was. Absolutely could of had a better Mother's Day meal elsewhere (I had reservations at other place but chose this one - Never Again) Won't be coming back to this Acapulco location.

It was awful. We went for Mother’s Day brunch and the waiter was rude and made us feel like we were an inconvenience to him. There was suppose to be complimentary churro pancakes and when we asked why the tables around us received them but we didn’t he just walked away then bought us burnt ones! When we asked for refills it took 15 mins to get them.. he made us feel like us being there was a problem for him he kept pushing us to get the margarita special after saying no we finally said yes.. tasted like old sour mix definitely ruined our mother day

We had a 5:00 p.m. reservation and arrived on time we were then told it would be a 15-minute wait which we were okay with. After waiting for about 5 minutes we see a party of four which was the same amount as in our party walking behind us without a reservation and they were immediately seated. When we confronted the host we were then told it would be another half hour wait. After we asked to speak to a manager we were seated immediately and there were several available tables. So we are very unsure of why we were told we would have to wait a half hour when there were tables available and people without reservations were getting seated. Not a pleasant experience. On top of that the food was mediocre at best I would definitely not recommend this place

Music performance was extremely loud...it was great to have and hear, but I couldn't even hear the conversation between the person next to me and in front of me. A lower volume to allow conversation would have been best.

We went for the Easter brunch. Food was delicious, mimosas were included and were phenomenal. Ordered a Cadillac margarita and it was ok. Waitress was slow, servers were great in picking the plates up, etc. Would definitely come again - tacos were flavorful and all the food was hot. They also did the buffet right by putting up the windows and plating everything for you per your request.
