My son and daughter-in -law surprised us with " Real Mexican" food for lunch. It was very good and and so flavorful. There is no comparison with other Tex Mex restaurants, because this is the real deal.

I believe Ixtapa is open 9am to 9pm everyday except Tuesday (closed on Tuesday). Call though to be sure. I think they serve breakfast 9 to noon.

I don't know their actual hours but they are open for lunch through dinner and later. They are open for breakfast on Saturday, too. And they are open on Sunday, too.
