We love the food here! While the wait staff isn't too friendly; service is quick and good. They have a nice variety (our family all love "el burro loco), very inexpensive and CLEAN!! it is a very casual atmosphere and they almost always have a good crowd. They only serve Pepsi Products (ugh!) when you order a soft drink. Their... More

What a let down- on my taste buds, it wasn't very expensive, but it did have decent ratings- which is probably a reflection of the local populace. The guacamole was soupy- primarily due to the amount of mayonnaise in the dip- which, if you aren't familiar with the ingredients- IS NOT an ingredient in guacamole. Don't go here.

We looked forward to eating some great Mexican. Chose this place based on rating. The food was short of good. Everything was very salty. And the chips were cold and hard. Guacamole had so much mayonnaise in it we could hardly eat it. Food was fast but I think the freezer section at the grocery store would have better food.... More

Service is the top of the offerings. Nice greeting and seating. Server did a good job and was quick. Manager opened and held door on exit. Very congenial. Ixtapa is easy to find, plenty of parking and good accessibility. Park by the ramp and not the handicap spaces. Ixtapa is highly decorated. It may not be for you but lots... More

Cover meat with cheese smear of pepper, call it a chilli relleno. The cold chunk in the middle really made this a visit to remember not to come back . Medium size margaritas are ok at least

Enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and the fresh taste of the food. Sometimes, in Mexican Restaurants, everything is brown and swimming in cheese, but that was not the case at Ixtapa. My vegetarian quesadilla was excellent and the colorful presentation was pleasing to both the eye and the tongue.

Service was pretty good and the way they understood everything clearly. Beer tasted pretty good not an iron or metal taste like you get from some draft beers. Overall good experience the guacamole was very excellent and I highly recommend it. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family when in the area.
