Make sure to ask to sit in Brenda's section. She is such a great and personable server and really made my experience here. The river view patio is my favorite & the new spring menu was wonderful.

Had shrimp tacos, would have expected a little grilling to the shrimp but they appeared to have been boiled. Guacamole was good, got the one scoop "half" order, was told the "full" order was three scoops. Odd math. They had a drink special that was a magarita with bud light on top, heard another patron tell the bartender that it... More

This was the first time I've been here in two years. A few years the food was great and innovative. The only thing that change was the quality of the food and the prices. One went down and the other went up. The refried beans were the worst I've ever had. The burrito was filled with the gunk along with... More

Just went to Blue Iguana Friday evening with a friend to check it out since I had read so many mixed reviews from great to horrible. We got there at 5:15 for fear it would be packed if much later. We were able to pick our own seats and got a waitress immediately since most the staff was hanging around... More

Had a great lunch experience in Le Claire our waitress was awesome with recommendations. So I ordered the fish (tilapia) tacos plate which was great being from San Antonio, Texas. The salsa was on the mild side but still tasty. I would recommend to ask for there Macho Sauce that will take it up a notch. I also enjoyed the... More

I felt sorry for the waitress because she did a great job, but the food is just bad. Clearly, whoever is doing the cooking has never had real Mexican, Tex-Mex, Mexican American or even Taco Bell food. It was dry, tasteless, burnt, and cooked in ways I've never seen done before...not in a good way. Even the "homemade" salsa was... More
