We ate here the 1st night in Fajardo, and the staff and food were delicious.. The bushwhacker and my Chimichanga were so good. The staff gave us a lot of recommendations for things to do..

At first services was kind of slowly but the staff were very kind and did their best for giving us a good service. Prices are ok for the portions (kind of big portions, so maybe you want to share). Definitely, I reccomend this restaurant and would go back again.

Not a bad thing to say about the blue Iguana. The staff was friendly and the food was tasty! My hubby ordered a chicken quesadilla which he loved. I ordered the vegetarian fajitas ( it is a bit vinegary... but i like vinegar.) so i loved it!!! We took the Ferry to Culebra, upon our return we went back to... More

I stayed at the Fajardo in 12 years ago. I remember eating here because the food was so delicious. The nachos are incredible, and it's right by the hotel. We stayed in Rio Grande and drove 45 min just to eat the nachos. The hostess was sweet, and we enjoyed talking with them. If you're around, I would highly recommend... More

The food here was much like you'd expect from a Mexican place back home on the mainland. It was good, but I would rather be eating the local fare.

Great verde salsa and hot habanero salsa. House salsa is good as well, but 6 bucks for chips and salsa. Fajitas are great but don't get the assorted app dish. Service was excellent and they have a great bar and two pool tables. Great prices as well. You are not in Mexico so don't be cheap and expect the same... More

I know you can get excellent fajitas in many places, but what I love at Blue Iguana it was the service and the chipotle spicy sauce. That add a deep extra flavor to our fajitas. Drinks were good and the server was very attentive and willing to share his personal favorite dishes. We had a great Time!

We stayed at the Fajardo Inn for pleasure scuba trip and spent several evenings in the bar...food was very good. But the service we received from Jessica (bartender) was awesome. She helped us find places, suggested activities and made us feel at home!!! Even helped us with transpiration:-). She was awesome. Great place to stay...will definitely be back!!

I went to the Blue Iguana with some friends and were blown away by the quality of the food. Many Mexican restaurants have the same bland and hot food. The Blue Iguana's chief knows how to take Mexican food and give it a whole new taste. We were there for lunch and plan to go back for dinner.
