They do an excellent job of accommodating large groups, bussing tables and making sure the customer is satisfied. Jacob is the man!

We were visitors to the area and apparently Bill Self has some interest in this cafe and does radio and TV spots. We found the service to be very good and the portions large. They will make most things to your liking with spice so don't be afraid of getting something that might be too spicy. Chips looked homemade as... More

I love, love, love this place. The blue corn taco is fabulous! The salsa is great. The Spanish Rice is awesome. Really good happy hour. The fajitas are delicious but the tacos are better. Cute atmosphere with murals of iguanas living life.

We were visiting friends over Thanksgiving and had dinner here. One group in our party found a very large hair in her fajitas. My salad was gross with old spring mix and chunks of hard and tasteless chicken and the cilantro lime dressing was disgusting. Our server was nice but I would definitely not recommend the place to others.

Great place to grab a bite before a game. Food is fresh service is fast, even if there is a wait you will get seated quickly

Just returned from a trip to visit daughter in college. Ate at Salty Iguana with a large group. The restaurant is located west of Campus in a strip mall area, away from the hustle and bustle of Massachusetts Ave. Readers should set their expectations accordingly- college girls picking a Mexican food restaurant in Kansas! The atmosphere was lively and nice.... More

Had a great mexican meal. Salsa is very good and the chips are thin and fresh. Service was good, price was reasonable and the food was hot and tasty. If you go for lunch go to the back page of the menu and get a great deal.

The food is terrible. Had soft chicken tacos. Chicken was dry. Ordered the Chicken quesadillas. They were soggy and shredded chicken had no flavor. Ordered beef crunchy tacos. No flavor. The Queso dip was the only item we would recommend. We certainly will not ever visit this location again. Gave one star because our server was friendly.

Very standard popular priced Mexican joint. Food is OK. Service is fast. I do like theTacos. GM is a very nice and hard-working gal. Walls are fun to look at, and they have a cool patio.

Great Iguana dip. but everything else isn't very good, It's pretty pricey, and for a Mexican restaurant I thought they would have great Mexican food. so, I was a little disappointed.
