If you have been to On the Border and liked it (as I do) you need to try Mama Iguana's in Springfield. The prices are practically the same, the menu has a many of the same items but with a more authentic tex-mex feel and definitely more fresh. The first thing I noticed was the clean and smooth taste of the salsa. It didn't taste of acid the way most pre-prepared salsas do. I'm not sure if they make it fresh but I'd be amazed to learn that they don't. I asked our server (I want to say his name was CJ) to recommend a Margarita and the one he brought me made a second one mandatory. The best Margaritas in town, bar none. Even with a packed restaurant, the wait for a table was short (less than 20 mins) and service time was also great for the volume of business and number of tables each server was taking care of. It was about 25 minutes from the time we placed our order to the time it came out. Bear in mind that this place was PACKED and has seating on two floors. Other restaurants I could name have left us sitting longer in an almost empty restaurant. My wife and I both ordered chicken fajitas and we had the Empanada appetizer to share. I highly recommend both. The manager even came around to see if everything was good and even offered more tortillas for the fajitas, which we totally did not need. They feed you really well. On Sundays, they have a kids eat free deal (at the time of this writing - please call ahead to confirm) so there is little doubt we will be going there as a family before too long.
