“Best burritos I have had so far in USA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I came to know about Iguanas while watching an episode of Man vs Food on TV, back home in Australia. Was in San Jose USA for work so paid a visit with friends. Portions are huge which is good as the food is very tasty. In USA have been in California and Texas, this was the best Burrito so far. We ordered corn chips and salsa along with it. That too was very tasty. For all of you Burrito lovers, this place is highly recommended. Oh yes and the staff are very friendly too.

“Out of the way Mexican take out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Grabbed some food here for the plane on a hotel recommendation, thanks door man: yummy!! Fish burrito with GRILLED fish, fish taco with GRILLED fish (so many places only do fried), shrimp taco, chunky house made guacamole, side enchilada: all made right in front of you. Discovered online that Man vs Food had been to one of their three locations to take on the Burritozilla: evidently a 5 pound behemoth: I did not order! This location next to San Jose State campus very busy and very small: people waiting for their order keep shuffling around to make room for those in line to order. Pass the short wait chatting with strangers: fun!

“Huge portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

They are not shy about satisfying their customers! The tacos are loaded with meat & the nachos fries are huge!

I split the burritozilla with a friend & still couldn't finish it! It is packed but the ingredients are quality. Very fresh & well seasoned.

Also, add the house-made hot sauces! Made fresh & different from other sauces out there. Great on everything

“Ok burritos. Very large”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Food is ok, good value. The salsa is plentiful and chips thick. Has I been there with three or four friend it would have been worth trying their giant burrito.

“Decent burrito, nice live music, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I got to know this place from man v food and since I live near by I figured why not give it a try.

I had two of the meats since I have been there, the carne asana and the pork carnitas. I personally like the pork better just cause I think it's more tender and has more flavor, but the carne asada is decent too. The "super" has sour cream and guacamole in it.. Which I think are kind of essential. This burrito will definitely fill you up.

My two visiting friends got the burritozilla, they split it and couldn't eat more then half of it....it is a serious monster longer than an arm.
