The Rodriguez family has moved to Central Illinois from the Chicago area. They say the area needs a good Mexican restaurant with flavors from Acapulco. Acapulco is in Southern Mexico, and if you have a trained palate, you should know the difference. I have a "tv-trained" palate and can't tell the difference. The food was good. The atmosphere needs some work. The Rodriguez family has taken on a big job by taking over the building that was vacant on Route 8 (Washington Road). In my opinion, they'll need to put some money into sprucing up the place to bring in the crowds from outside Sunnyland.
