You've heard it from the other reviewers: great food, neighborhood feel, great draft choices, very good margaritas, good service and reasonable prices. What else do I have to say except that Jay the bartender is pleasant and engaging. Like David, I also recommend the Tres Amigos

Dropped in with a group mid week for dinner at the Woburn location. A neighborhood feel with friendly attentive staff. Excellent draft beer selection served in large cold mugs and lots of choices on the menu. All of us enjoyed our meals. Portions are ample. food is presented well with good flavor combinations. Some constructive comments, refried beans were a... More

My family and I went here while staying at a local water park. We were completely taken by how good the food was! Unlimited chips that were still warm, good salsa, large, very good margaritas and quite possibly the best fish tacos I will ever have. They were so good and the sauce that accompanied them was just fabulous. The... More

The complimentary salsa with chips, was a baaaad start, but the rest of our meals were fantastic; enchiladas =A, burritos= A, chimichangas=B Beef = A, Chicken =A, Pork=B. The atmosphere is very casual, the service really good. Its weird because that salsa was just so lame and everything else was really good. (I am convinced they had run out of... More

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
