We love Mexican food and consequently love trying new ones in towns we visit. This jewel of a restaurant is a little hard to find since its tucked back behind some other buildings but is worth looking for. Turn on Colonial Drive off of Lorna Road and turn right almost immediately (about 35 feet) into a strip mall with about 4 other Mexican businesses. Iguana is at the end of the strip. The restaurant is beautifully decorated; service was friendly and fast. True test of a Mexican restaurant is the salsa and this one passed beautifully. We tried the steak fajita chimachanga and steak fajita chili relleno and both were excellent. Portions are large. The fried ice cream desert was authentic and not the 'rolled in corn flakes' kind that you get in some restaurants. The only disappointment to the meal were the margaritas. Bland and 'watered down'. Prices are on the high side but still reasonable for the Birmingham area.
