The menu was giant, so plenty to choose from. All the standard options you'd expect from a Mexican restaurant were available. The seasoning on my dish was good, but the beef was a bit dry and salty. It had probably been sitting around longer than I'd have liked. The margarita was huge, so by the end, I'd forgotten all about... More

I eat along alot and am always consious of fact that where i take up a table, the staff probably could have sat 3-4 people- and this place makes you feel like they want you to move on- food is average and prices are average.

My wife, her son, and I had dinner at Ixtapa on a Saturday evening. She had the chicken chimichanga, my step-son had vegetarian nachos, and I had the chicken enchilada a la crema. First impressions: the restaurant was clean with appropriate Mexican decor and background music. It was a nice building inside and out. Appetizers: The chips and salsa were... More

A friend who lives in The Dalles recommended this restaurant, and perhaps because we did it as take-out it was just not as good as we expected. I had pork in my tacos and it was tough and not very flavorful; my husband had ground beef and it was just not all that impressive. They didn't give us enough salsa... More

We have been here at various times over a few years and we just have not been at all impressed with the taste or service at this Ixtapa. We very much more the enjoy the service and food at Casa El Mirador.

B & I ordered the salad specials, which seemed to be very fresh, but nothing outstanding. The salsa was quite good (B said too much cilantro, but he says that if there is one piece), and the chips were warm. The server was nice, but seemed to want to be somewhere else than on the job.

While this restaurant has many plates that are the greatest, I prefer a simpler plate known as the Ixtapa Burrito - with pork ! The burrito has beans & rice inside the burrito with pork and verde sauce. I highly recommend this plate. The decor is pleasant and certainly a family restaurant.

Stopped here while driving back to Portland. Food was pretty standard...chimichanga and chile relleno platter (with rice and beans) was solid but a little bland. Service, however, was terrific so that's why it gets an extra star from me.

Ixtapa is a great place if you want Mexican food! We've had lunch and dinner there, on a number of occasions, and have never once had anything but delicious food and great service. They have quite an extensive menu, a kids' menu, and even a few American selections -- something yummy for everyone. We've also taken food out many times,... More
