Good food in a small family owned restaurant

We visited on a Friday night around 5:30 pm. It was super busy but the staff was efficient and friendly. The food was fabulous and the portions were large. The chili renellos were too hot for my taste but my husband loved it. I loved my steak tacos and the margaritas were tasty. What a lovely... read more

We first came here several months ago after an outing with the kids. From the outside, it looks like a typical strip mall restaurant, but the inside has a much quieter feel to it. We came close to walking out. (Hungry kids and quiet don't mix well.) However, we decided to stay, and because of that, I found my favorite... More

We eat at Ixtapa's every chance we get. It is without a doubt the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. The service is outstanding and the atmosphere is pleasant. If you are new to the restaurant the owner will explain the various dishes. This is not your regular Tex-Mex food but the flavors reflective of authentic fine Mexican cuisine.... More

We had been going to Ixtapa on a regular basis for a few years. Last year we noticed a change...smaller entrees, order off the menu, just not as good. Well we went back last week to see if it had changed. It was excellent! The owner, who was gone some of last year, was back waiting the tables. The menus... More

Stumbled upon this place by chance. Authentic Mexican for sure. Recommend trying the queso, its different than what you'd find in a chain restaurant, but its very tasty. Overall the food is good, restaurant is a little small and if you aren't in a booth, the tables are a bit cramped. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the... More

This was my second time eating at Ixtapa and I really enjoyed myself. Victor waited on us and was a delight. He also made ordering a lot of fun, typically I have a hard time deciding what I want, however, Victor made it very easy...I said I wanted chicken and not too spicy. Then a little while later he appears... More

Went to this Resturant in a week night for dinner. It was fairly well visited. The entrance is covered with awards and news article mentioning. However, I must say I wasn't super impressed. The food was good and the price was fair butttt it just didn't stick out as stupendous.

Atmosphere was a bit loud but nice. The salsa tasted fresh (had to get a pint to take home). Spices were spot on. I had the Enchiladas de Nopales. Order cactus any time I can...it was prepared very well here. The beans were excellent. Will definitely go again

On a Wednesday night the place was packed by 5:45. The food was very good. The service was also good. The owner suggested dishes we wouldn't have picked and we cleaned the plates. It was super yummy! We split an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. It was the perfect amount of food. The appetizer was soft fresh corn tortillas with a... More
