We are blessed with many options for mexican food in this area. My opinion is don't waste your time with Ixtapa. The food is bland and you can certainly get better in the area. The chips are okay but the salsa is just plain bland! If you are looking for a quick lunch, it will work, but if you are... More

This is a good Mexican restaurant with the usual items on the menu. The chips and salsa were kind of bland. We had enchiladas and a quesadilla - both of which were good - nothing to either get excited about or complain about. Prices are fair.

Good Mexican food, Excellent Value and they have the best chile rellenos in the universe. I try them every where I go and these are the best!

Make sure you go to the Atlanta Highway location and not the Eastchase version. They're owned by the same people, but for some reason, the Eastchase location just can't duplicate the quality of the original. Food is Americanized Mexican but it's very, very good. Ample portions for reasonable prices. Service can be "iffy" at times depending on who your server... More

Ate here with some friends. I had the chorizo burritos. I forget what they ate. Ordered the "top shelf" margarita, which was excellent (but $9.50 vs. $7.50 for normal) and I enjoyed every sip of it. My buddy likes stuff super-spicy hot. They accomodated him with 2 levels up from the normal table stuff. It scorched me, but barely phased... More

I'm from Houston, TX and I know real mexican food and I know that I can't get that type of Mexican here in Alabama however, Ixtapa is the best I've had so far in Montgomery. They have the BEST margs ever and they definitely put enough alcohol in them! The shrimp nachos and beef & chix taquitos are excellent! They... More

So, their lunch service is fast. I'll give them that. But that's all they have going for them. Typical generic menu. No substitutions. Average prices. Stereotypical decor. Substandard seating (think those old banquet hall tiny chairs w/ cracked vinyl seating). You want decent Mexican food from someone who grew up eating Southwestern and Tex-Mex? Don't eat here. Go to La... More

My fiance and I come here every week. We both love it. My fiance used to live in Texas so he knows his mexican food. 3 years ago I had never tried Mexican food but I started coming here with my now fiance and I am hooked. I have tried several others in the area and they just don't quench... More

We like Ixtapa. It's always the same, and it is open a little later than some restaurants in the area. This location is closer to where we live now (recently moved across town) but we find that it has a consistency with the Eastchase location. Fast, friendly service, at a great value.
