Nice lunch

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... read 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

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.
