Mexican with Style

Went there after a business meeting with a pretty good sized group. The interior of this place is really pretty cool as you can see from the pics. Martgueritas are good too. The service was fast, but the food is only so so. Have had better Mexican, although you can't go wrong here really. Just... read more

We are looking for that perfect Mexican restaurant to rival the ones we had in Colorado. We may have found a nice equivalent at Iguana. They were ranked pretty highly with good comments, and the restaurant is somewhat close to where we live. Very nice staff. Food was good. Fajitas had no seasoning and were served so hot they were...

Definitely a fun atmosphere! And usually really good service whenever I go. The food is fine-nothing extraordinary. I think the prices mainly reflect the atmosphere rather than the food.

I had been here once before but it had been a few years. My sister picked this place for lunch on my recent trip home to Alabama. The server took a few minutes to get to us, but once he did, we received really good service. We both had jumbo frozen margaritas (mango and lime), which were good. I found... More

Live near by and always come here to quench a craving for Mexican food. Food is so much better than the other choices in the area and a step above in quality and appearance. The fajitas are great and I always enjoy the dinner combo #5. Service is usually good and unless they are crazy busy you'll get your chips,... More

Had appetizer of cheese with chorizo sausage which was above average. I had the combination enchilada plate with beans and rice which was ordinary. My wife had tamales, which she said were outstanding. We split a chocolate cake was tasty, but nothing special.

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

Our latest trip to Iguana Grill was on Saturday night. We were seated right away even though the parking lot seemed full. We received our chips moments after being seated and our waiter came and promptly took our order. The food was timely and delicious. Overall, a very good experience without any problems.

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
