We've been to this location as well as the location in Lake Stevens (owned by the same family) several times. We've always had consistently good food and the owners and staff are always very friendly!

Following the reviews on Trip Advisor, we sought out a non chain Mexican place that was near by Fred Meyers..Ixtapa was up to expectations, clean, not crowed with hot, well served food. Try their chile rellanos.

The restaurant was clean. The staff was efficient and friendly and the food was really good! The hot plates contained hot food that was prepared just right. There was an abundant supply of chips and salsa. The staff seemed knowledgeable about the menu, specialties and daily special. They did not seem to cut corners. I really liked this place.

Ixtapa is in our weekly rotation of local restaurants. Food is always fresh and plentiful. I have several favorites including the Ixtapa burrito, Enchiladas Del Mar (shirmp) and many of the daily specials. I also like the Skinny Margarita (might as well get the Ixtapa size for $2 more!) and the mojito. Alfredo and his family are always working and... More

Went with my wife, ordered a fish taco. We both loved it!! It was only 10 dollars!! People were friendly and polite, and if the location was better there would have been more people, I guarantee!! We're definitely going back, next time with our kids!

I went there to take out lunch for my mom & me. She wanted tamales & I wanted quesadillas. The tamales were thick & gummy & the sauce was flavorless. I don't know what they used for cheese in the quesadillas, but I hope to never encounter it again in my lifetime. It was unnaturally orange & gritty. They put... More

The people are exceptionally friendly and the food is always good. Anymore when I go in, unless I am craving a specific food, I just order whatever the special is. I have not been disappointed. Good value and good food and friendly people. You can't miss here.

We've visited this restaurant many times and have found the atmosphere warm and inviting; the staff knowledgeable and friendly and the food, to die for! Our family's favorite menu item is the "No Name Special." It's a deep fried chicken burrito chopped into slices with a great mix of melted cheeses, salsa and sour cream. It has an amazing ability...

Their food consists of cheese, tortillas, meat, beans topped with more cheese. Ask for a serrated knife and a pick...cause your going to have break through the layer of cheese skin to get to the other ingredients. But I'm not really sure when us Americans are going to stop rating the value of Mexican food based on the volume of... More
