I've been going to Ixtapa since they opened. Excellent margaritas (Presidente) and very good Mexican food. I love the arroz con pollo, it's my favorite. And they also have excellent fresh guac. And a wonderful habanero hot sauce.

I eat lunch here on a regular basis. Always friendly and courteous, the staff is attentive without hovering. Try the taco special for lunch... can't be beat for value.

I live about 10 minutes away from this place and come here maybe once a month. I have literally never had a bad meal at this place. The Groton location is nowhere near as good at this place for some reason, maybe because this one...More

We have been coming here ever since this restaurant opened quite a few years ago. The food is consistently good and the service is fine. It can be a bit noisy, but that may be because there are a lot of families eating here. I...More
