“Just another mexican place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We are blessed with many options for mexican food in this area. My opinion is don't waste your time with Ixtapa. The food is bland and you can certainly get better in the area. The chips are okay but the salsa is just plain bland! If you are looking for a quick lunch, it will work, but if you are looking for good food, try someplace else.

“Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This is a good Mexican restaurant with the usual items on the menu. The chips and salsa were kind of bland. We had enchiladas and a quesadilla - both of which were good - nothing to either get excited about or complain about. Prices are fair.

“Muy Bueno!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Make sure you go to the Atlanta Highway location and not the Eastchase version. They're owned by the same people, but for some reason, the Eastchase location just can't duplicate the quality of the original. Food is Americanized Mexican but it's very, very good. Ample portions for reasonable prices. Service can be "iffy" at times depending on who your server is. Some of the staff are excellent while others can let your drinks run dry and not refill your salsa bowl. Most of the time, though, the service is excellent. My wife and I go here about once a week and wish we could take the whole staff with us when we move soon.

“Really good! Great margaritas, very hot hot sauce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

Ate here with some friends. I had the chorizo burritos. I forget what they ate. Ordered the "top shelf" margarita, which was excellent (but $9.50 vs. $7.50 for normal) and I enjoyed every sip of it.
My buddy likes stuff super-spicy hot. They accomodated him with 2 levels up from the normal table stuff. It scorched me, but barely phased him. At least they had something for him, which was nice.
Overall, a really good restaurant. Is it cutting edge or trendy? nope. But it's definitely solid, the service was good, and they can accomodate any party of people.
