"Tequila Shots"

Best bar in the world. Had an amazing time every night we were there. Alex gets involved with his customers and isn't afraid to take shot with them.

the food starts at eight at night so don't plan to eat there earlier but trust me it is worth the wait .the tacos pastor and the quesadilla's are the best home made in front of your eyes and dirt cheap..the music is great and the owner runs around yelling in a deep gravely voice tequila shots quite a place...

wonderful food and at a great price. You can't miss this place. Coldest beer in all of Ixtapa and the staff is hands down the best. They serve food late night and it's wonderful. Home made blue corn tortilla's and good party atmosphere

Blue corn handmade tortillas, were the best! Fun nights. I miss it already. The only thing lacking was one of the waiters just seemed out to lunch and the other guy was always picking up the slack for him. The great atmosphere is unbeatable.

Alex and Concha's Sports Bar, or just "Alex's" is one of my favorite bars in Ixtapa. Alex has developed a loyal following of repeat customers. He runs a friendly bar with inexpensive drinks, good music and lots of energy. You will find people from all ages having fun together. Alex's is definitely worth checking out.

Alex's bar in Ixtapa is a fun place to go! It's outdoors, has cheap beer and great food! Alex gets things going and Concha cooks up excellent quesadilla's and tacos! We caught fish a couple times and bring the fish to Concha and she preps it and serves it up for you with rice and salad. She's a great cook!... More
