This remains one of the coziest restaurants of Oranjestad. Few pretensions but just good food and large colas for a nice price, and there's a nice atmosphere. The portions are very large but sharing is not a problem. Along the balustrade you have a nice view of the busy street. The Igua-Nachos are the best nachos we've had.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Iguana Joes. You can sit outside and people watch and see the cruise ships leave. Nice place to eat!

After a hot walk around town, the cool breeze, great view, cold drinks and food were a welcomed relief. The West Indies Patties, or Pastechies, were very good.

Best Ribs- all you can eat for $24.95. 4 different varieties. Dry rub, original, jerk, and name is escaping me. Choose all 4 or combo. Comes with Dutch home fries and the best cole slaw on the island. They come out fast and keep asking if you want more. Big portion for first batch and other batches.

Each time we come to Aruba we HAVE to go to Iguana Joe's. Prices are like the states and the food/cocktails are yummy! Of course, our trip would not be complete without a shopping trip in their store for some fabulous Iguana Joes hot sauce (for me to take home for a group of people who love it too, besides... More

Went to iguana joes with my wife on our 2nd evening in Aruba. Very friendly staff and good food. Not fast food but more comfort food. The jambalaya was a huge portion :)

Good service. Decent food. Huge portions. Drinks were good. Be aware that there is a sports bar across the street also on a second-floor deck that plays VERY loud music.

Turned away at the door by a fairly rude worker. Raining outside and guess he assumed we were just trying to get out of the rain and didn't even ask us if we wanted to wait for a table.
