I went to dinner with my boyfriend tonight. We were feeling lazy. So we decided to get a cheese crispy and no names both are very fast to cook we went in at 7:55pm the server let us know they would be closing at 8:30pm...if we weren’t done by then we could take it to go. We get our food super fast witch was great. We get about 6 nights in or so. I’m eating some of the cheese crispy at this time I feel a sharp pain stab into the top of my mouth. I spit it out and it’s a sharp metal shard then I inspected part of the cheese crispy and find more metal shards cooked in. We both immediately stopped eating. Eating sharp shards of metal could cause some serious medical problems. A little freaked out to eat anything from there obviously. I let her know that we would not be paying for food because we hardly ate any of it. She said she didn’t know what it was from. She went into the kitchen and said they had been cleaning the fryer.it might have been from that. My boyfriend got a beer and I got a margarita. We offered to pay for the drinks which we did and left. I looked on Google when I got home at the reviews. I saw that not even a month ago somebody else found metal in their food. This is obviously a problem there. I wouldn’t recommend eating there anytime soon. 3,29,2021More

Since they're so rude. Horrible service. I like their's food though. Just not the service and the way they treated you as customers I don't deserve that but still tip them well because it's one of my rules. For sure they don't deserve it.

We asked to order a Chimichanga and salad and we know it is on the lunch menu for cheaper but we always pay more to get that meal....waitress told us NO we couldn't order that. we ordered 2 Modelos and looked at menu while she...brought salsa and chips back...chips were good but salsa looked like it had been in a bucket for month(not very fresh and tasted like it) we ordered fajitas and received a very good portion but only 4 tortillas when I asked for a few more she said that would be another order. I also had requested no green peppers but she said that wasn't possible as all of their Fajita vegetables are already mixed in a bucket and they couldn't pick them out. I usually go to Playa bonita, tre hermanos, or Ixtapa in lake stevens marysville area and have great service from all them. This was terrible and will NEVER GO BACK.More

Friendly, helpful staff, all under Mama's watchful eye- never a bad meal, daily specials for the budget! Highly recomend the steak fajitas, or the #32- hard to go wrong here! The wife's favorite is the "No Name." Did I say the food was great? I...can't account t for the bad reviews here- we've been regulars since they opened. I would note one of them is pushing another eatery, and falsely claiming it is the only other one in town.More

Ixtapa has my favorite fish tacos. My husband had a combination plate which he liked very much, also. I was very impressed with the decorations which add much to the atmosphere. You feel like you are in a nice restaurant in Mexico. We really enjoyed...it.More

We had burritos, tacos and quesadilla. Each of us took a couple bites off our plates and then asked for the check because we would not be finishing our meals. I didn't know it was possible to make Mexican food look and taste so bad!
