We like this place so well, we have gone back several times and each time the food is fresh, hot and yummy. It has a full bar and great sweet tea.

Diners here as a family. The service was good, the food came out hot, and quick, but it was only okay. The tortillas were not fresh, nor were they made in house. There was not option for corn tortillas. The chips were okay, they were not made in house either. After spending a lot of time in Texas, it's gonna... More

It's good. I always loved Chi-Chi's when they were in business, so I'm always trying to find something as good. This is good, but not as good as Chi-Chi's. If you weren't a fan of Chi-Chi's you may love this one. The service is excellent, fast and friendly. Prices are fair.

Acapulco is a local chain, with the Lebanon location being my favorite due to its size and large parking lot. I've eaten here multiple times for both lunch and dinner, and have never had a bad meal. The menu is extensive, and reasonably priced. Serving sizes are quite generous, so no one should leave here hungry. I've eaten a far... More

We stopped last weekend after a day at the nearby Renaissance Festival for a nice dinner. Our server, Efrain, was the most pleasant, hardest working server we've encountered in a long time. He was attentive, courteous, & remembered precisely our special requests. Everything was plated promptly, served piping hot, & tasted just right after a long day outside in the... More

The girlfriend & I ordered a Pollo Loco, Coctel de Camaron, and a Large Margarita. The margarita was huge. I'm glad we split it. The Pollo Loco was good, I would recommend it. Our favorite though was the Coctel de Camaron. I was expecting a bunch of shrimp in normal cocktail sauce. Not at all. We got a bunch of... More
