We ate there today. I had a beef crispy taco, and cheese enchilada. Hubby got the spicy burrito. All was very tasty! We also had a margaritas with patron

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

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.

Salty Iquana is our favorite go-to Mexican restaurant when we visit the Kansas City area. We love the food and service, plus they have a quiet covered patio where we can take Luke, our dog. We love their chips and salsa. I can't get enough...More

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.
