Just So-So

Don't get your hopes up for authentic Mexican cuisine at Iguana Mia. Although palatable, it is definitely the Americanized version of Mexican food. The surroundings are pleasant, and, for the most part, service is acceptable.

Friday night - 7pm....walked up to hostess station and greeted by a not so friendly hostess. Looked around and saw many many empty tables, plus several empty tables on the outside patio area; however, were told the wait would be at least 30 minutes! Plus several empty booths in bar area "were closed for the night". Go figure! Must need... More

When we're in Cape Coral, we go to Iguana Mia at least once a week and sometimes twice. The service is great, the food is fresh and delicious, and the chips and salsa are amazing, easily the biggest tortilla chips I've ever seen and really tasty! I haven't eaten anything there I didn't like. The tacos are especially good, and... More

I went there with my mother and aunt last week, It was some of the best fajitas I ever had. I got the chicken and steak. For the first time, the chicken was better. I did not drink but my family said the drinks where great but not to strong. I am looking forward to going back and trying some... More

Then food was excellent but the service was so-so. Went on a Monday afternoon for lunch. Husband and I ordered a large margarita while my brother in law ordered a small. Waitress came back and asked my brother in law if he wanted another small one since they were only $1 on Mondays. Husband and I would have ordered that... More

Food was decent but Everything costs extra. If you wanted cheese sauce on burrito, it was 2.50 extra & nachos.It seemed everything had additional cost.Excellent .99 margaritas though& the server was excellent.Food is pretty expensive.

This restaurant is a laid-back casual dining experience with consistently good food that's a couple steps up from the Mexican restaurants where you "pick number 34 for burritos." Anyone that's ever visited the typical basic everyday mexican restaurant where the menu's are all the same (and they aren't even a chain) knows what I'm referring to. This restaurant has: good...

We sat outside and ate. The food was good, but a little slow getting there. The road outside is busy with cars, but still nice to be outside during beautiful weather.

I cannot say that Iguana Mia was the best Mexican food I have had but I can say it was a great time. The food was not fantastic but it was good and I really liked the Tamales. My wife had the Carnitas which were also good but we have had better. Our server was great and the food was... More

Food was good, with large portions. We had to wait for a table but the food was very good with lots to choose from.
