“overpriced!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Beautiful interior, but WAY overpriced. Somewhat slow service from waiter considering there wasnt harldy any customers in there at the time. Food quality was just the expected with a mexican restaurant, and the lunch options were mostly $10+ unless you wanted ground beef options for $8+. Typically mexican restaurants have a much more affordable lunch menu! The dinner options were all $12+

“Terrible service.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I was part of a large group, about twenty people, and it took them forty-five minutes to even take our orders and then almost an hour and a half to bring us our food after that, and when we got there, there were only four other tables with people at then. When we left, the clean-up crew were giving us dirty looks as if we were the ones that wanted to be there so late.

“Great atmosphere & the foods not bad to boot!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

If your looking for a nice place to go in any size group the Iquana Grill is a good choice. It's honestly one of my families favorite Tuscaloosa "Mexican" restaraunts. The atmosphere inside is outstanding, its just a gorgeous place. The service can be so-so though it really depends on the waiter. Most of the time we have had good service - but not always. The food always is hot and tasty. Price wise it's not to expensive...but it's not cheap either. Parking can be a handle as this is Midtown Village and parking overall stinks everywhere in the shopping complex. Circle a few time and keep an eye out for folks leaving. I would absalutely feel comfortable suggesting this place to anyone visiting town.

“This place is okay...”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Food was not the best in the world but it wasn't bad either. The restaurant is beautiful on the inside! I suppose you should go for the atmosphere and the cocktails. The salsa is yummy and tastes fresh.

“Yummy Fajitas”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Ate here twice while getting my son settled at U of Alabama. Dinner was better mainly because we asked our waiter to over grill the onions and green peppers for the Fajitas, that made it really taste. The service was good even on a busy night.
I would recommend this tex-mex grill, can't say it's my favorite in the world but for Tuscaloosa, it's good!
