Have been going to the Iguana for many years. Love everything on the menu, but you can't go wrong with the tacos. The salsa and chips are addictive and if you aren't careful you will not have room for your meal.

Stop by and you always get chips and salsa. On a Monday job a great deal with $4 Margarita and $1.75 tacos. Sitting at the bar is comfortable and bartender was attentive.

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.
