We were seated immediately with the chips/salsa arriving promptly upon sitting. Server followed and was speedy in taking our orders. The chips/salsa/cheese sauce were all very good. The disappointment came when our food arrived. The food was soggy. The bottom shell of the taco salad was in edible. My crunchy taco was wet and my daughter's quesadilla was soggy. Just... More

My food arrived cold. The server gave us serious attitude about my party needing separate checks, we were not a family, but a group of women there for a girls night, of course we needed separate checks! I paid my bill indicating no tip on my credit card and left a full 20% tip on the table in cash. When... More

2085 Colonial Drive Vestavia Hills, AL 35216 (205) 987-8240 Cool lighting and live music on some nights as well as the lively atmosphere add to the charm of this upscale mexical grilll.

Love this place so much! From the absolutely incredible decor to the great food this place is the best. I love to eat here after dark so you can fully appreciate all the lights. The smoked salsa is a favorite, but you have to ask the server for it when they bring the chips and regular salsa. I've never had... More

This is the second time, in 3 months that we have been here. Both times the service and decor were fine. Staff is friendly. The food just average. Tonight we both had taco salad. The salad came out very quickly and it seems like it was prepared ahead of time. They give you lots of meat but flavor was somewhat... More

We come to Birmingham every year for the Porsch school and Iguana Grill is always one of our stops. The food is really good and the margaritas are excellent. If you like mexican, it is worth a try.

The restaurant was basically empty; it was eight on a Wednesday night. So I'm not sure why they seated us near the bathrooms, which smelled really bad. I assumed the whole restaurant smelled, it is on a hill in Hoover so sewage could be an issue, so once I got used to it I didn't ask to move. But when... More

I have been to this restaurant many times for lunch, and I highly recommend the Shrimp Enchilada Camaron dish; it is outstanding! The Grilled Mesquite Chicken Salad is so tasty with the marinated vegetables, avocado and romaine! The chicken breast was definitely grilled on mesquite and the tenderness and flavor is outstanding. Service has always been good at lunch and... More

We love Mexican food and consequently love trying new ones in towns we visit. This jewel of a restaurant is a little hard to find since its tucked back behind some other buildings but is worth looking for. Turn on Colonial Drive off of Lorna Road and turn right almost immediately (about 35 feet) into a strip mall with about... More
