Chips and salsa had a good flavor, but chips were served in small pieces. Expensive for what you get. Faux Mexican. Decent giant tostada.

I hadn't been to the Salty Iguana at this location in years. The weather was nice so we opted for outdoor seating. I think the first thing I saw (assuming my memory isn't that faulty) is that they redesigned their menu. It use to be...More

The heading about sums it up. We had a great waiter. The young man was attentive and polite. The food was pretty average or slightly below. I had the hot pot and the beef was pretty tough. My wife's black beans were not very good...More

Have been going to the Iguana for many years. Love everything on the menu, but you can't go wrong with the tacos. The salsa and chips are addictive and if you aren't careful you will not have room for your meal.

Stop by and you always get chips and salsa. On a Monday job a great deal with $4 Margarita and $1.75 tacos. Sitting at the bar is comfortable and bartender was attentive.

With all tbe good Mexican in the KC metro area it is hard for me to believe this restaurant is still popular. The food is fairly bland and quite Americanized and the value is inconsistent. Try it if you like US Midwestern Mexican food.
