You can't beat the $6.95 lunch specials at Ixtapa. There are about 18 specials to choose from and we have tried at lest half of them. The portions are huge and you will have a hard time finishing your lunch. Service is excellent. The servers are very friendly.

Food was average, waitress was EXTREMLY rude. We waited 30 minutes for our order to be taken, they forgot my dad's drink, left off parts of and entire orders, argued over coupons (until my dad whipped out his iPhone to physically show the waitress the date). Bean dip and margaritas were sub-par. When I asked the waitress if they had... More

Visited my brother down Portland way, and we went out for dinner. Mexican food is a good standby to cover many different people when going out. As a rule, I usually try the Chili Verde to measure a Mexican restaurant ability. It is one of the main dishes and as such, should be a standout to measure any other dish.... More

Great service, the food is always served quickly and is excellent! Margaritas are just OK. I have had several different items off the menu and all are good.

This just really isn't even worth the time to review other than to say, find a different restaurant. The place was empty except for one couple when I arrived and it still took me going to get someone to get waited on. Another couple left in frustration after sitting at the bar for 15 minutes with no service. The food... More

Great friendly service with classic tex-mex food. HUGE portions and really good margaritas. Family owned and it shows.

We love the food at Ixtapa. The portions are generous and the quality is top notch and always fresh! The owner, Greg is always there and makes a point of coming over to say hello every time we stop to eat. The $3 pints of Negro Modelo can't be found anywhere else and if you ask they will make you...

Since reopening, this restaurant has gone not only downhill, but rolled off the end of the cliff. Terrible service, awful food, & uncomfortable atmosphere. Find something else in Old town.

Ixtapa was closed unfortunately due to reconstruction of the strip mall it was in. But the good news is that they are re-opening 2/21/09. So as a life long resident of West Linn if you are visiting or driving through West Linn and want some of the best Mexican food around at a great price I would tell you to... More
