This is a very festive and decorative Mexican restaurant. The restaurant overlooks the shopping plaza. The food was excellent and the service was actually really good despite other reviews. I guess it depends on your waiter. I am not a big fan of Mexican food...More

The service was horrible here, and the food took over 2 hours to come. It's like they forgot about us. Not sure if the food was good because by the time it came I scarfed it down. Disappointed by it. Might try again next time.

We love the food & atmosphere here! We make it our first stop for dinner when we fly in every year! My only complaint is that they need to bring more salsa to the tables for larger groups without being asked to over and over.

The Iguana Cantina is located in the Palm mall which has grown over the years. It features mexican-fare and a good spot to grab a meal. The drinks are average, although i was a bit surprised they did not offer a happy-hour menu. The food...More

I think you should make another choice in general, as we found the service very slow and the ambiance lacking. I don't recall the menu having any gluten free options.
