We always visit The Generals several times. The shrimp taco and shrimp fajita are so good. And if you have a big appetite, the Apache Plate is awesome! The staff always remembers us and is always so glad to see us. The General and Warren always stop to visit if they are there. Highly recommend this place if you have... More

The General is a great break from the all inclusive buffet style food. They cook shrimp right at your table with fire. The guacamole is made fresh at your table and tastes spectacular.

Food good, beer cold. English feed Televisions galore. Always a good spot for lunch or informal dinner. Really a hoot on big Hockey or Football days. It was rocking for the cowboys Green Bay playoff game jan 2017. Did not know so many packers fans lived in Ixtapa. Lol.

If you're in Ixtapa, you have to try this place. The food was amazing and the service was great. No reservations were needed as we were waking around and decided to stop in for dinner. So glad we did! Highly recommend this!

The screens are on various sports, the food is yummy and the tequila flows! Exactly what one would expect from a sports pub in Mexico. Nice patio around the outside and located right in the heart of the "town" of Ixtapa.
