Great sangria, the jerk chicken was tasty but not overly spicy, the ribs had so much ground clove that it overpowered the meat. But, the atmosphere is excellent. Great location and the staff was very attentive! Nice portions and very reasonably priced.

Don't expect to go here and get anything more than your standard chain restaurant meal for slightly above average prices. We had appetizers and 2 drinks each. Cost about 60 bucks before tips. The drinks are what was most expensive. My Long Island Iced Teas...More

Nothing to write home about at Iguana Joe's. Stopped for lunch and the sandwiches were ok but not great. However, the wings were pretty good.
