Great chips

We went there with friends (his choice), the first waiter was nice, courteous and clean cut. It was cold, so we moved. The next one was a female, don't know if she was new or what. She was not that great. Nice but not real friendly and we had to wait longer than expected. They were NOT busy. We... read more

The courteous staff worked swiftly to bring a deliciously authentic meal to their customers while the decor gave one a feeling of being south of the border.

Love coming here. It's small and very inviting. It's not too loud so you can actually have a conversation. Food is consistently good and always fresh. The salsa is a little chunky for me but my husband loves it! Looking forward to next visit. Also appreciate how we are always greeted - very kind.

Fantastic food. Had the chicken fajitas with their homemade corn tortillas (best corn tortillas I have had in ages). Service was second to none. If you get the chance to dine here ask for Grace. She is AMAZING. She made sure I was comfortable and taken care of which is nice when you are dining alone....

It's tough to find decent Tex-Mex on the coast that doesn't use lard or chicken fat. La Iguana is great food and offers many vegetarian entrees. The 3 tostadas were too much for one person but was as good as leftovers. They make their own tortillas and they are superb. My husband had guacamole enchiladas and again it was a... More

The breakfast items are my favorite. I highly recommend the Migas. They can easily accommodate a crowd with their table arrangements. No small booths here.
