“family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2008

This is a great place for the whole family. My kids love the chips and it is the best salsa I've ever had. Very fresh tasting. I also have to say that the margaritas are delicious and come in tons of flavors. The appetizer platter is great for sharing or for a meal for an individual entree. The entrees are good, they even have a mole sauce which many of the tex-mex places don't. If you can, go on a thursday night when they have a live mariachi band that wanders around singing at the tables.

“Best Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2008

Ixtapa has a very friendly, effusive staff, and has been become increasingly popular since they've opened. This is because you really get everything you could possibly expect from a good Mexican restaurant, and it's a place that you would feel comfortable bringing your kids or a date. Their margaritas are really excellent. Their menu is not the most extensive, but the food is quite fresh and tasty.
