I have had La Frontera, Red Iguana, Sam's Mexican, and homemade food by a Mexican neighbor. I prefer Ixtapa over them all. The place is always clean, the staff is very polite and has been since they opened. I have had the taco salad with the shredded chicken 45 times and it has never changed in it's quality or taste. The shell is tasty, you get a cup or so of delicious shredded chicken, about a a cup and a half of shredded lettuce, and generous scoops of guac and sour cream with sprinklings of chopped tomatoes and cheese. Since I love cheese, I always get a side of cheese to go with it. Their enchildas. fajitas, tacos, and chimichangas are all good and the vegetables are fresh. The salsa is made in house and beats anything you can get at the grocery store, and their chips are thin and crispy. WONDERFUL!!!
