We ate at Salty Iguana on a Sunday afternoon. It did not have too many patrons. Even though it was not busy our service was terrible. We were never asked if we needed anything. WE had to ask for all services. The food was average....More

Reasonable prices, and plenty of food. My marguerite was really bad but the manager was very nice and made a new one that was wonderful. Restrooms were clean and service was nice and fast.

Bill self burrito was excellent and the dip is to die for. Two of us had a great time and good food. Will schedule a full business meeting lunch for next month

The food is always good here. This time the service was a bit confusing. Our server barely came around, so another server took care of us. These things happen sometimes. I would go back for sure

we usually sit in the bar where we can watch sports and the crowd is lively. You can still get any item on the menu, which is great. Fun place to be.

I only go there on Monday $1.75 taco day. The food is great, but normal menu prices seem high. It wants me to say more. I have nothing more to say.

Food was ok, nothing to write home about. Waitress was friendly. Second time there. Not sure I'll be returning.

The Independance one have two rooms. Each one exits to a different street. May be they do reserve for parties but you have to call them. Looks like their phone number is 816-350-8003. But check their website.
