I've heard great things about the Salty Iguana in KC, so we decided to try it out in Lawrence. That was a big mistake. The staff were very friendly, almost overly friendly. The food is horrible. Our dishes had no flavor what so ever. They arrived to our table less than five minutes after ordering, and it was obvious the... More

The food is rather bland. I have tried this restaurant multiple times and finally gave up on them when I had to take back my take out that was incomplete and also wrong. It has unique painted walls that were always interesting to look at.

We have a couple of favorite Mexican Restaurants and this one is closest to our home. This place beats the other one hands down in both atmosphere and seating room. And the food is about as good as it gets for a locally owned Mexican fare stop. This is a good place to go if you have a large party... More

Since Salty Iguana is close to Theatre Lawrence, we ate dinner here before attending "The King and I." The walls are covered with murals of iguanas dressed in clothes doing every day human things, and the wall we sat closest too had a depiction of the Kansas University Basketball team. Too funny! The atmosphere is obviously fun and upbeat, and... More

Really enjoy going to The Salty Iguana. They have an excellent menu and the service is very good. Portions are large so plan on taking a box home for a late night snack! Margaritas pretty strong and I had to send it back but they were very willing to accommodate my request. Décor is quite funny consisting of iquanas dressed... More

We were in town for a swim meet and this restaurant was across the street. The staff is very friendly and interacts well with the patrons. The staff was very knowledgable about the menu and offered suggestions. I had a combination plate with a cheese enchilada and chicken taco. The taco was awesome, the chicken was moist and the shell... More

Fun atmosphere and service. Good value. I had steak tacos on my second visit. They were cold and had a very strange after taste. I couldnt even finish the second one.

After living in Lawrence for four years and moving away, I still crave the iguana dip... And their salsa. I would recommend this place to any tex-mex lover. So yummy.
