My sister lives in the "Northland" of Kansas City, just about 2 miles from Ixtapa. Honestly, I grew up on "taco bell" mexican, meaning not exactly real Mexican, to say the least. When we go, there are at least six of us, including my soon-to-be 11 year old nephew who is the pickiest eater on the planet. Most of us... More

We were here recently and of the four of us, three dinners were excellent - chile rellenos with wine sauce and cream, grilled chicken, and chile rellenos with tomato sauce. Mine unfortunately, enchiladas with mole sauce was not very good. The sauce was very, very sweet and it simply wasn't good. It is hard to knock the restaurant otherwise. The... More

We love this restaurant. This is authentic Mexican food. The owner will tell you (with a big smile) a Burrito is a small donkey in Mexico. The food is fresh and tasty. The service is always friendly and fast. You do not feel rushed while you enjoy your meal. They are happy to explain anything on the menu. For lunch... More

It's a little hidden but it is the best mexican food in the area! The chef will also surprise you with a dish if you can't decide on something from the menu. Don't try to order a burrito, you can get one of those anywhere. Ixtapa has some great, authentic items on the menu. Staff is friendly and never had... More

Not the best, but not the worst. Food was pretty good, but a little on the pricey side for my taste. Restaurant is a little small, kind of crowded. Service was great!

Ixtapa prides itself on serving authentic Mexican dishes. Their margaritas are really good. We often have the mole enchiladas, which are slightly sweet and excellent. The chicken Ixtapa in a tomatillo sauce is delicious. And they have sopapillas. The menu is quite varied, with several items you don't get in most Mexican places, but also the things you might expect.... More

Not your usual American Mexican fare ... Delicious and more authentic, with fresh ingredients and great flavors. ... We like to have the servers choose something for us based on a few preferences; they'll often bring something off-menu that's amazing. The margaritas are (as the menu says) the best in town, too.

Don't let it's laid back location fool you!! This is a resturant that serves unique food in Veracruz style!! The food is excellent. The margaritas terrific. The waitstaff are caring and once you are seated you can be on your own pace! It's cozy. Friendly and well appointed. You must try it!!

The food wasn't anything special. Not awful but not great. There are plenty of better Mexican places in KC. Also the service here was pretty bad. We came in for lunch and the place was practically dead anyway (probably should have been a warning sign). After we were seated everything took forever. We were there 1 hr 20 min for... More
