“GREAT MEXICAN FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

Read several mixed reviews on Iguana Mia and since we were in the area we decided to try it at lunch for ourselves. I'm glad we did. The place was larger inside than we expected. I can imagine it probably fills up during season. The place wasn't crowded at all and we were immediately seated. As soon as were seated, a huge bowl of chips and salsa were delivered to our table. There were three types of salsa: medium, hot, and hotter. I loved the hot sauce, the hotter the better. We were promptly greeted by our server, Omar. Since this was our first time, he explained many things on the menu. He was very helpful in us making our decision on what to order. The food was delivered a short time later. It was served very hot ion hot plates. It was delicious. The manager even stopped by to ask us how everything was. It was a great experience and we will definitely stop in again when we want Mexican food.

“Taco Bell”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This restaurant is very poor quality mexican food. The service is slow. The sauces are floury and bland. The enchiladas are flavorless, the burritos are boring and beanie. The salsas are more of a relish.

The only redeeming factor is that the Margaritas are excellent

“Uninspired warmed over appetizer and food”

I could have done better at the frozen food section of a supermarket. Never went back. Taco Bell in a green shell.

“Good food and great service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in with the family for dinner. There was a 10 minute wait that was not really an issue despite there clearly being over a dozen empty tables.
The service after being seated was great and the manager was helping to buss, clean and vacuum as well.
Food came quickly and tasted very good. I will be back. Should not have been but there was a clear difference between the food in both restaurants. Cape wins, hands down.

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is a great place for fun and family. The surroundings are very south of the border. The Mexican food is excellent with different levels of spicey heat. Everyone there was having a great time.
