My wife and I were in the area last week, and we wanted to get some Mexican food, so we checked the internet along with the reviews. We picked Ixtapa, and it turned out to be a very good choice. The warm chips and fresh tasting salsa were very good. We had the appetizer sampler (could have just ordered that!).... More

We lived in Dallas, TX for 6 1/2 years and visit friends in Austin frequently. We bring all of our Dallas and Austin visitors here and they all love it!!! We have travelled all through Mexico and this restaurant is the closest to the cantina experience as we can find. Marco is the best but all of the staff is... More

Ixtapa is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I came here tonight to celebrate my anniversary. I get the fact that it's hot out but what I don't get is a lack of caring; I asked the waiter to take something off the bill because it was as hot in the restaurant as it was outside, the restaurant was so crowded that...

We have visited this Ixtapa on other occasions, but I felt compelled to write about this visit. Let me first say that the food was excellent! I started off with the chicken tortilla soup, then had the fish tacos. My wife had the jumbo shrimp fajita and my son had the chicken quesadilla. We all left there stuff to the... More

This is my second time in a row going there and getting a hard as a rock precooked chili relleno. This place charges prices for food that should be cooked fresh but someone thinks nobody will notice they cook it ahead of time and they are very wrong about that. It's a simple egg white whipped then folded into it... More

After living in Austin, TX for a dozen years I have been starved of good Mexican food after moving to Vermont. I tried Ixtapa on a trip to the Boston area and found it to be a step above what can normally be obtained in this region. When we arrived we were promptly greeted and seated. The restaurant had an...

We have eaten there three times now, and it is consistently excellent. The restaurant is clean, brightly lit and nicely decorated. Upon being seated we are quickly greeted with a bowl of warm home made tortilla chips and two smaller bowls of fresh salsa, one hotter than the other. I always order the Carne Asada, and my wife likes their... More

Not sure what the buzz is all about for this restaurant. We had dinner Saturday night with some close friends. The standard Mexican fare, burritos, nachos, fajitas. The four of us agreed that the food was fine, no issues at all. But really nothing to rave about. In my opinion the best Mexican / American food in the area is... More

My friend and I spend a lot of time in Mexico so back in the U.S. we like to travel around Massachusetts to find good Mexican food. Time only permitted a drink and appetizer on this visit. The Cadillac Margarita was excellent. Chips are nice and warm and the salsa that comes with it is great (not just a tomato... More
