If you want to eat what residents of Guadalajara, Mexico eat, this is the place for you. No salt on the table. Nothing with yellow cheese. Fabulous salsa. If you are lucky enough to be there when the owner, Victor, is in the house, you are in for a treat. Especially if he knows it's your first time there. He... More

BLUF- Excellent, fresh, well prepared Mexican food. In my experience, the quality of the food is a direct reflection of the time and effort spent on preparing the meals. The presentation of the food is also better than any restaurant I have found in the Kansas City area. A great find for me and my family. Found this small place... More

We found this smaller place in a strip mall just West of I-29 on Barry Rd. a Groupon deal led us there and it was a pleasant surprise. We had the tacos as pictured on their Groupon offer and it was a tasty surprise. They are not folded but lay flat and open on the plate. They were pleasantly spicey,... More

In my opinion, the menu was filled with unusual Mexican recipe interpretations, the service was uninspired, but the food we were served did appear to be fairly high quality. The higher pricing was not justified by the presentation. Entrée presentations don't impress me and it seemed an attempt was made in this direction. The room was typical for a strip... More

For authentic Mexican food at a small price, try Ixtapa on Barry Road! After many travels to Mexico, we wanted the real stuff! We had eaten here before and knew the restaurant to be genuine. This day, margaritas were free, beer and appetizers half off! The manager refilled our glasses and proudly served us dishes he recommended. Both my spouses... More

Had dinner recently on a brief layover at the airport. The family who runs this fine place knows good Mexican food. Each bite had that definite touch of good, down-home Mexican cooking. Even though their are choices nearby, none come close to the service and quality.
