Iguana Grill has an amazing environment, they have very beautiful interior decor, as well as the food! I recommend getting the molcajete which is their specialty dish! The margaritas are delicious, and the fried ice cream is to die for! Best Mexican restaurant in town!

This restaurant is much nicer than most of our Mexican eateries. It has a lovely ambience and great food. I would highly recommend the Pollo Adobe (grilled chicken topped with grilled peppers, spinach and cheese dip).

I have eaten here twice and both times we had good service and the food was delicious. The chips were always served warm and the guacamole was to die for! I also have to say they make a mean perfect margarita. Great place to relax after shopping!

Went to this restaurant while in town for the evening, big mistake. I don't believe our waiter had ever even EATEN Mexican food, let alone been trained to work in this restaurant. He was very slow and inattentive. The food portions were large, but tasteless and expensive for comparable food. There were three of us, we ordered regular food from... More

We've eaten here several times while my daughter was in college. Food has always been good, but service a little slow. This past May was graduation, and our family went here afterwards, and expected there to be a wait since it was graduation weekend. The hostess said 45 minutes, so while we waited, I went to the bar to get... More

The service and food met our expectations. Started out with heated chips and great salsa. Fajitas, tacos, quesadillas...in huge portions. We had to get to go boxes. The food didn't stand out, but the prices and portions made it worthwhile. Different from the usual Texmex layouts, we enjoyed the ambience. We'll definitely stop by here if we're back in the...

It's an OK Mexican restaurant. Not great but OK. The decor is really nice. Very clean. The food is good but it's average.

The service was very poor, our server preferred chatting with the bartender than taking care of her tables, of which she had two, us being one of them. The area we sat in was very unclean. The food tasted and appeared like a cheap frozen meal. Will never return. I should have picked up on the signs, as it was... More

Took my son here per his request when my husband & I came down for a Bama game. I loved the vibrant decor & funky vibe of the restaurant. The margaritas were very tasty and we all enjoyed our meal--we had different versions of their chimichangas. Way too full to even attempt dessert. Service was attentive & friendly. Will go... More
