I was surprised to read some recent, negative reviews, for my experiences at Ixtapa, have been good. Granted I have only had takeout, but I was very impressed. The Burrito portions are very large and hearty. The steak was cooked well, not to dry or burned, but just right. The house made guac was delish as was their salsa. The food has an authentic, homemade touch to it. The only reason that I gave Ixtapa 4 stars is that I have not had table side service in the restaurant yet....read full review
