This is one of those low class, rough and rowdy, sports bars. If you're into that, they have Budweiser. If you are into quality classy places, there are many much better choice in old Pasadena.

Great live music on Friday night. I went here for my birthday after having dinner somewhere else. I loved it.

I ordered a chicken salad which tasted horribly fishy. My server saw that I wasn't eating it and asked if I wanted it boxed to go. I declined and explained that it tasted fishy and I didn't want it. He apologized. Then returned with the bill. He never offered to bring me anything else, he didn't credit my bill or... More

On our first night in Pasadena we wanted to watch the NFL game between the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals. Since we are Packer fans, we wanted to go somewhere there were other Packer fans so I looked on the Packer website and Ix Tapa popped up. When we arrived at about 5:30 pm we were immediately asked...

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Food was great, service was fast. I had a bbq chicken salad. Great iced tea. They feature tables both inside and outside. Great drink menu and lots of options. When in Pasadena, I will be sure to come back.

Beside the food and great costumer care, Inclusion is a great key in a successful community. Congratulation management for yesterday's performance. Arcoiris LA Mariachi was a wonderful experience. I will be back soon with more Friends. Michael Dergar Señior Contributor food critic

I've partied here several times. It's probably the biggest place in Old Town. Finally ate here... I was actually impressed. Is it the best mexican meal i've ever had? no.. but the place does compete. I mean I'd say eat here. I had the enchiladas poblanas. The poblano sauce was creamy and had hints of chocolate. It was good and... More

Seven of my best friends and I dropped in to ix Tapa hoping to have a drink and grab a quick bite to eat. I found the place spacious, with really unique decor, great drinks and food! The three tacos de papa were excellent and so filling I had to share one! Prices were reasonable.

I went to a Mariachi event with dinner. They overcharged my card! Make sure to check your check, they bring you one with the 18% gratuity (which is okay) then when they bring you one to sign, they will only give the waitress less than 8 percent of that. The restaurant manager didn't know how to explain the receipt! I... More
