Great Mexican food. Served hot and authentic. The Pollo a la crema is superb ! Clean and reasonably priced. Great service. Casual dining and comfortable atmosphere.

All four of us enjoyed the plentiful entrees offered here, as well as the generous supply of *good, fresh* chips and salsa. The arroz con pollo was very good and I would order it again.

Starting with the menu - it is so extensive it's hard to know what to get! They cover everything. The food is good, served hot and pretty quick, even with a full crowd. Good service. Family owned.

Pile on the cheese and it's tasty, but doesn't seem authentically Mexican despite the pleasant decor.

We have eaten here many times and we are always full afterwards. Every dish here is fantastic as well as the staff. The restaurant has beautiful artwork and great seats. The worst part about the restaurant is that the table are a little rough so they are not good for card games, but you should still eat at this place... More

Hubs and I eat at Ixtapa quite often. We are originally from Southern California and Mexican food is part of our DNA. Thank goodness this place is close. It's a cute restaurant in a shopping center centered around a True Value. The dining room is nicely painted with a variety of Mexican scenes. There are plenty of booths with tables... More

I've been around quite a bit. For me, the Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant in Philomath is the best. Period!

If you live in Philomath you don't have much of a choice for Mexican food, so with that being said if you want Mexican and don't want to drive to Corvallis, Ixtapa is still a good choice.
