We were seated quickly with a party of 10. Servers were nice, but not very attentive. Food was very good.

We've been going to this place frequently for the past 3 years now. It has become our hidden gem here in Hoover. We love the atmosphere, the waiters are very quick and make it their obligation to ensure your glass is never empty. The food is always hot and full of flavor. I have never had anything off of the...

On the positive side, the place has nice decor. The food, however, is unimpressive, bland and uninspired. It is also not cheap, especially considering that they charge extra $1.50 for salsa, $4 for a small bowl of guacamole.

Part of a large group from work for dinner. Steak Asada was very good. The charro beans had a nice taste to them. The dark salsa is very good and smoky flavor. A good place for lunch or dinner.

We have been frequent patrons and last night received poorly cooked entree's. We asked trend back and replace the manager refused. Did not ask for refund but rather an alternate selection. Manager rudely refused and would only recook original selection. We pay check and left. Will not be coming back due to the rude service.

I have a favorite, but this is second with no doubt. The atmosphere/environment is clean and better than most. The food is good, and you the expensive is average. I highly recommend this restaurant. I have ate here many times for lunch and was never disappointed, other than the change of menu. At first, there was a thick leather like... More

My wife and I have been visiting here every week for the past few months. The location has great decor, as others have mentioned. The food choices are also very good and they give you a lot of food. My only complaint is that the prices are a little high.

First off, LOVE LOVE the interior of this place! Our server was great, he liked we spoke Spanish to me. Food was actually very good, love the spicy salsa with the chips. The jumbo margarita was good, too much for me. Good first experience, will dine here again.

My partner and I visited Iguana Grill earlier this year. We were impressed with the service, the food and the prices. I would have given our first visit 5 stars! However, a group of us just visited Iguana Grill last week. The service was not good at all. The food orders were correct, I think. However, getting them all out... More
