I LOVE IT! – You won't be dissapointed with their large margarita menu and tons of Tequila to choose from...one of my favorite places to hang out and have a good relaxing time! The whole feel of this place that is cause by the combination of ambiance, margaritas, salsa music in the background, and fun staff - gives you the feeling of a vacation (even if you go there for dinner and a couple drinks) Words can't describe.
I don't just like it...I love it very much! – The restaurant is full of cheesy but fun "cantina-like" decor along with a giant lizzard at the door hovering over you as you walk through. The staff right away will greet you and to take care of you is an understatement. The food is great with appealing specials every week (yes I go frequently..but so will you once you visit!). I love this place after work, - they have half off all their appetizers in the bar!
Best Margaritas around! Great Service – I went to Iguana Cantina for the first time recently, and being a restaurant owner, I must say this place knows what they are doing. The staff is the best part of this place! Friendly, relaxed and outgoing, they will joke around will you and make you feel relaxed. I guess this place really is a "hot vacation spot". Reading a few reviews about this place shows that it's pretty much a general consensuses. And make sure to try thier Horni Lizzard Margarita!
Yummy Margs says it all! Patio is a great place to have large parties hang out & relax. The bar is small however the bartenders usualy are very attentive and make you feel more than welcomed by joining you in conversations. I will always go back for more!
Great Customer service, Good comfort food – A relaxed enviroment where family and friends can really hang out and enjoy this place. I would not reccomend for a first date, however, thier candlelit patio is perfect for any other date! One could sit out there all night and drink their margaritas and eat some of their delicious snake bites!!(The BEST stuffed jalapeno peppers I've ever had!)
Fun Atmosphere – My friends and I love this place and go all the time. Their patio seating is amazing, and half of it is tented so you don't have to be directly in the sun. At night the patio is lit up with mexican music playing in the background that makes you feel like you are actually on vacation drinking margaritas (which are the best I've had in Boston area). It's casual and fun with a fun & energentic staff that makes your experience that much mure fun. Great place to hang out with friends and family!
Favorite Hang-Out - Best Staff – I live in the Cape, and still continue to take a drive to iguana Cantin at LEAST every month. Every time my wife and I have been it has been such a relaxing and enjoyable time. We love going to just sit at the bar and grab some appetizers (half price during happy hours!) and have a laugh with the bartenders who still remember our drinks everytime we walk through the doors.
The staff is always inviting and friendly.
The food is great for the value, you get huge portions so we usually take leftovers home.
The vibe of this place really had you feeling like you are actually in Mexico or on vacation!
Go here, you won't be dissapointed!
Great Atmosphere & overall experience – I never, for what reason I'm not sure, went to eat ot drink at Iguana Cantina before a couple weeks ago. Since then I have alreay been 2 more times. There staff is so freindly, from the hostess at the front door to the server who joked around with us all night, to the bartender who made us feel comfortable and welcomed after dinnner and the manager who thanked us and asked us to please visit again. So we did! the bartender remebered us and our drinks!! (Hard to find in bars these days) The dinner we had was a dish of good comfort food that comes in a portion you could never finish! The things I liked most about Iguana Cantina was thier staff and how willing they were to make me happy.They have a Patio out back as well, that is amazing at night time to sit out on. YOU HAVE TO CHEKCK THIS PLACE OUT. Never mind that corporate stuff they serve down the street.
WOW that was great!!! – Fun on the patio, inovative drinks, and unique items on there special lists like this incredible dried cherry and scallion quinoa salad that was the acompanyment for a grilled chicken breast with this great Argentinian Chimichurri sauce.
I've been there a few times and I'll continue coming back!!!
Moody Street's top destination for family-friendly Mexican eats also doubles as an affordable date spot. – In Short
The noisy dining room features flashy murals, giant iguanas and colorful knick-knacks. Groups of after-work pals throw back south-of-the-border specialty drinks on weeknights, while families fill the tables on weekends. The extensive menu includes appetizers such as spicy cornmeal-crusted stuffed jalapenos ("snakebites") and crunchy corn fritters. Sizzling fajita platters prove popular, and the Cantina's mild homemade salsa goes with everything. Desserts include Rain Forest tiramisu (made with Mexican chocolate) and tangy Key lime pie.
