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.

Came here for a late lunch with coworkers... food is delicious and portions are very large. I had the chicken chimichanga and it was great. Quick, friendly service!

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 place was clean. A good option if you are looking for Mexican food.

Went there with a small group of people and none of us were impressed. Service was slow and not efficient at best and good was ok. The rating made us expect more but we're disappointed. Nothing special.

Tried to go to the Red Iguana but it was too crowded. Pleasantly surprised to find the Blue Iguana (no relation to the red one). The house margarita was fine. The menu was quite extensive. Got chicken tamales and they were delicious. My husband, teenaged sons and senior citizen father were all happy with their food as well.

I dont have any complaints. Our food was decent. (Not the best I've had, but far from the worst)The host's at the front were very welcoming, and the place had a neat atmosphere. ( I loved the cool arch and walk way down into the restaurant. ) Our waitress was nice and efficient, but again not the best not the... More

I usually dump hot sauce all over my Mexican food to give it flavor, but my vegetarian Blue Iguana tacos were so sublime that I did not alter them in any way. The hot sauce on the table was tasty, and my virgin margarita was tangy. The service was impeccable. Recommended.
