With all tbe good Mexican in the KC metro area it is hard for me to believe this restaurant is still popular. The food is fairly bland and quite Americanized and the value is inconsistent. Try it if you like US Midwestern Mexican food.

I stopped in on a Monday and was delighted with the specials. The house margarita was $4 and tacos were. $1.75. My server Amber was very attentive. Chips and salsa come immediately. I even ordered sopapillas for dessert. I didn't realize how large the order would be. You get 10; too many for one person. Great ambiance and delicious food.

It's too bad I can't give this a Good rating and have to chose between Average and Very Good. It is good but I'm not sure it's very good. The endless chips are nice and we each get a little bowl of salsa that is replenished pretty often. We arrived a little after 5:30 on a week night, so it... More

I have always eaten here when visiting my grandmother right around the corner. It was like "our spot". When she was put into a nursing home, I would run here to get away from everything and just be alone yet with Grandma. I sat at the bar with my book and before I got a page read, food was in...

We had our second lunch at SI today. Just like our first experience, today did not disappoint! The service is always fast and friendly, The food is fresh and tasty. The hot salsa is perfect and, as Bob Barker would say, the Price is Right!

I stopped in here mid-afternoon after a day of Christmas shopping. I sat at the bar and ordered guacamole and a sangria. I loved the guacamole, chips, and salsa. The sangria was not my favorite. It was a great place to stop for a shopping break.

The food and the service were great. Very relaxing meal with the best chips! Thanks for taking good care of us.

The food, at least on this occasion, was bad. The cheese enchiladas were flavorless. The grande chicken nachos were the the worst nachos I've had anywhere. If you took an ounce of velvetta and melted it into a pint of water, the result would be thicker and more flavorable than what was poured over those chips. Just ridiculous! Although our... More

Seems every time we were eating in the area Salty iguana appeared to be a good place to eat... it has been in this location for years! Maybe it's that we are used to Mi Ranchito's or Jose Peppers or Ted... salty iguana had absolutely NO flavor whatsoever. Our entire family and the couple with us were terrible disappointed and...
