I have been going to Ixtapa for a long time and met the General on my first trip at another restaurant. If you have never seen what a heart attack on a plate looks like order the General's special shrimp. It is a meal but makes an excellent appetizer so you can have one of the other excellent entrees.

We've been here many times and always order their delicious burgers. Great service, friendly employees and customers too! Fun bar areas downstairs. We prefer to eat our burgers upstairs so we can watch the activity on the street below.

We go to General's for dinner 2 times a week and stop in for drinks another 2-3 times a week. Food is good and consistent; in fact I'd say the quality has improved over the past couple of years. We prefer the pizza here at General's over Franks's; both taste great but prefer the cleanliness here. Other winners on the... More

Discovered this place a couple of years ago and liked it enough to return again this trip. Great service, very friendly staff and they put on the NHL Playoff game for us to watch in it's entirety. Since my team was in the finals, we returned a second night and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. One of the staff was... More

We had a great time here, sports bar with Hockey! Beer was cold and the chicken wings were yummy. We also ordered a dinner on one of the 3 nights we stopped by and it was SO GOOD! I can't remember what it was called but it had EVERYTHING, Shrimp-Chicken-Steak, Fantastic Fajitas!

the staff were great, wonderful food. They play music at nights so you can go dance. The only downfall was they didn't have to go boxes.

If you are in Ixtapa you have to go to The General. Isa a really fun sports bar. The food is amazing and the service is great. The fajitas were delicious. I wish we would have had time to go back for another meal.

Hi, we recently vacationed in Ixtapa; awesome location and we'll definitely return. We read a ton of great reviews about the generals and decided to spend an afternoon. The place was fairly quiet. The decor is fun and as most have commented, lots of tvs to watch a game or two. I can't say though that it was a fantastic... More
