Amazing. Again, trip advisor has saved us from a bad choice once again. First time here in the Dalles on vacation. Looked up places to eat, read several restaurant reviews and chose Ixtapa. Awesome food, waitress Rubi was outstanding too. The decor was so tastefully done we are still blown away. The portions are huge, even if you are really... More

Waited for about 10 mins just to be sat down, got my plate the waitress never came back if everything was good or I need something. Bad service. Sorry but no tip.

Have not been here for a few years, but stopped by for a quick bite and had the Al Pastor special tacos for lunch. They were amazing as was the flavor of the black beans (always get theses) and the rice. There was some green sauce that was super hot and tasty and half a lime. One of the best... More

We pass by The Dalles on a regular basis but never have found a good eating place to call our favorite...a place we could look forward to when going through. Well, that drought is over. We happened to drive by Ixtapa and gave it a try based upon other stores in their chain with favorable experiences. This was no different.... More

it was a hot afternoon so libations were a necessity and Ixtapa delivered! Outside seating, cold beers and good food..just what we were looking for. The chips and salsa were excellent and the shrimp salad was one of the best i have had..the chicken tacos a bit on the dry side but the beer helped!

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
