I stopped in here mid-afternoon after a day of Christmas shopping. I sat at the bar and ordered guacamole and a sangria. I loved the guacamole, chips, and salsa. The sangria was not my favorite. It was a great place to stop for a shopping break.

We enjoyed lunch at the Salty Iguana in Prairie Village in Overland Park, Kansas. Favorite place of friends who live nearby, the service was excellent and the food was delicious.

The food, at least on this occasion, was bad. The cheese enchiladas were flavorless. The grande chicken nachos were the the worst nachos I've had anywhere. If you took an ounce of velvetta and melted it into a pint of water, the result would be thicker and more flavorable than what was poured over those chips. Just ridiculous! Although our... More

Seems every time we were eating in the area Salty iguana appeared to be a good place to eat... it has been in this location for years! Maybe it's that we are used to Mi Ranchito's or Jose Peppers or Ted... salty iguana had absolutely NO flavor whatsoever. Our entire family and the couple with us were terrible disappointed and...

Waiter was attentive and provided us with endless chips! The food was very good, more like Tex Mex. I can see why it is always so crowded, worth every bit of a 10 minute wait for a table!

This is the kind of kid/family friendly restaurant that serves a real purpose - decent Tex-Mex (or American/Mexican) food in a lively, very colorful atmosphere. Is the food memorable? No. Is it a bit above average quality with lots of choices & options? Yes. One plus is the warm basket of complimentary chips with very good salsa (fresh tomato/herb taste).... More

Carnival atmosphere is probably ok for children, but the food is fair to poor tasting. Rice is served cold, beans are overcooked in the "microwave". The plate might be hot but the food is room temperature. The plates and portions have become smaller as the prices have increased.

Needed to go some where close and fast for a quick birthday lunch. Had a party of 7 and they got us seated right away. I had the lunch tostada and it was very good and plenty of food. Refilled the chips and refilled drinks. It is sorta a sports/Mexican place. Lots of TVs and iguanas painted on the wall... More
