If you're a Mexican food expert, perhaps this place will not meet your high standards. However, my friends and I only occasionally eat Mexican food, perhaps 2 or 3 times per year. If you're more like us, then you'll find this casual dining experience a...More

This is a great place with a great vibe, and especially for groups. I had the chicken taco salad and thought it was excellent. We had a little mix-up with the reservation/wait list but the servers redeemed themselves and bent over backwards to make it...More

The queue here is long but food is well worth the wait. Service staff is great and we don't feel that we are foreigners there. I love the Nachos with the salsa and the quesadillas. My friend who is a vegetarian had enjoyed her vegetarian...More

Interesting place with lots of colorful decorations and awards on their walls. Started with a Margarita which was very good with a blend of crushed and cubed iced. Chips were nothing great but the entree was a seafood enchilada with a wonderful mix of seafood....More

The service was good and the good was great. They clearly specialize in Mole and have a huge menu. All 8 of us were satisfied and happy.

We found all of our meals to be tasty. The portions were good, not too much, just right. Our meals were the fish tacos, mole and a combination platter (enchilada, flauta, relleno). All were served with rice and beans. The staff was friendly and the...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
My wife and I plan to try Blue Iguana next week. BW913 mentioned the pay parking next to the Blue Iguana. 1 - How much does that parking cost? 2 - Does Blue Iguana validate for parking or any portion thereof? 3 - Would we have a better parking alternative on Friday afternoon, November 20, 2015, just for the time we dine? For example, would we be just as well off parking on the street?
