Part of a large group from work for dinner. Steak Asada was very good. The charro beans had a nice taste to them. The dark salsa is very good and smoky flavor. A good place for lunch or dinner.

We visit this restaurant quite frequently. Its never disappointed us. The entire staff is always very nice no matter what time of day. Always have a smile on their faces. We went in for dinner and ordered cheese dip, the chicken fajitas, beef tacos and one steak taco. We also ordered a Liter of the Margaritas which is a great... More

We have been frequent patrons and last night received poorly cooked entree's. We asked trend back and replace the manager refused. Did not ask for refund but rather an alternate selection. Manager rudely refused and would only recook original selection. We pay check and left. Will not be coming back due to the rude service.

I have a favorite, but this is second with no doubt. The atmosphere/environment is clean and better than most. The food is good, and you the expensive is average. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have ate here many times for lunch and was never disappointed, other than the change of menu. At first, there was a thick leather like... More

My wife and I have been visiting here every week for the past few months. The location has great decor, as others have mentioned. The food choices are also very good and they give you a lot of food. My only complaint is that the prices are a little high.

First off, LOVE LOVE the interior of this place! Our server was great, he liked we spoke Spanish to me. Food was actually very good, love the spicy salsa with the chips. The jumbo margarita was good, too much for me. Good first experience, will dine here again.

My partner and I visited Iguana Grill earlier this year. We were impressed with the service, the food and the prices. I would have given our first visit 5 stars! However, a group of us just visited Iguana Grill last week. The service was not good at all. The food orders were correct, I think. However, getting them all out... More

Iguana Grill has a very nice decor, probably the prettiest Mexican restaurant in town. The food, however, is average. I have tried several dishes there and wasn't impressed, except for the Arrachera steak, from the dinner menu. Very well prepared. The dinner menu is more expensive than most Mexican restaurants here in Birmingham.

I love the interiors of this restaurant! As an Interior Designer I really appreciate attractive interiors. However, I wish the food was equal to the decor. I've eaten here several times, and never really enjoyed my meal. I've enjoyed my company, and the service staff are very nice...I'm still looking for that "loved my food" experience

Went there after a business meeting with a pretty good sized group. The interior of this place is really pretty cool as you can see from the pics. Martgueritas are good too. The service was fast, but the food is only so so. Have had better Mexican, although you can't go wrong here really. Just don't expect the food to... More
