Stopped in for some local Mexican food - definitely North of the Border!! The service is good and the choices are plenty. We started with a few margarita's - no complaints. I had a taco combination plate - two hard, one soft with rice and beans, of course. All good. This was a nice change from the standard chains available... More

After seeing the good reviews on Trip Advisor I dropped into "Ixtapa" when I arrived in the USA (Boston) from the UK for a business trip. I ordered the Chicken Fajitas (US$14.25) and they were delicious... Also the biggest skillet of Chicken, Onions and Green Peppers I've ever seen in a Mexican Restaurant. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and... More

Great food, great waitstaff. Highly recommend the mole sauce, it is delicious. I have never had or been with anyone who has had a bad meal. The sangria is my favorite drink, however, my friends all love the margarita's...especially the "blackjack". If you buy a pitcher of margaritas, you get a free appetizer. The rice is good too, not spicy.... More

Ixtapa's restaurant is as close as you will come to any of the Mexican restaurants you will find in Mexico and the states of Jalisco and Nayarit in specific. The food is outstanding made to perfection, drinks perfect and atmosphere very familiar to what would be found around Puerto Vallarta. We've eaten here many times and have found the liquid... More

Recently I moved a few miles away from this place and has provided some great meals each time. Most of the time I get the Steak Fajitas which have always been consistently good. The portions tend to be decent and the delivery has been prompt. The only minor issue I may have with this restaurant is the queso. Unlike most,... More

We visited Ixtapa Restaurant after seeing the reviews in TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The food is enormous and very tasty. The two of us shared a one-person fajita and had so much, we took home enough for another meal. The steak and chicken in the fajita was so tender you could cut it with a fork. We also got... More

We live so close to Ixtapa and had never been there before. We decided to give it a try and we were blown away! The staff greeted us nicely, never said we couldn't come in, given we walked in 10 minutes before closing time. Their salsa & guacamole are delicious and authentic! The chips were super fresh and our dinner... More

Had dinner here with friends who live in Woburn and who have been here several times before. We had margaritas which were very good. I had fajita quesadillas which were tasty. My husband had beef chimichangas which he enjoyed. I have had better Mexican but it was fine. Affordable too.

We eat here a lot as it is within walking distance. Food is always great - we love their chips and salsa. Family favorites - fish tacos & fajita salad; staff is very friendly and attentive!
