Free chips & salsa had dead bug on it. Ordered one Margarita and nachos and after 45 minutes of waiting had to ask waitress where our order was. Was told their computer system went down and that they had to hand write orders. Was never kept informed until we finally asked where our food was. Manager "comped" us for our... More

Stopped at this little town on a motorcycle trip along the river. The Blue Iguana has a fund atmosphere and very friendly staff. There are tables out front overlooking the street but I would recommend the tables in the back with a view of the river. Food was great and very reasonable. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Food came... More

On a motorcycle trip with a friend, we stopped at this excellent Mexican restaurant with the deck that overlooks the river and the front porch that overlooks the charming Main Street. My large chicken burrito was good and my motorcycle buddy enjoyed his taco salad. Launch key with chips and two types of salsa served in carafes that hit the... More

Very disappointed. My sister had been there before and choose it. Drove from Cedar Rapids for Mother's Day dinner. "Queso" costs $8 and is just a SMALL skillet of melted cheese (most likely mozzarella). Burritos were cold and had very little meat and no flavor in them. Most disappointing Mexican food I have ever had.

Great little place on the Mississippi River, had a wonderful lunch, steak and chorizo tacos and chicken taco salad. Both were tasty, especially the tacos! Sat outside on back deck in the sun, had a nice view of the river, saw ferry boat come in. Brenda was our server and she was excellent.

The Blue Iguana had a spring menu featuring the best crab enchiladas - they were actually the best enchiladas of any kind that I've ever had. I was told they'd be on the menu until the end of April and went back twice just to order them. On my third visit, April 21, you can imagine my disappointment when I... More

Make sure to ask to sit in Brenda's section. She is such a great and personable server and really made my experience here. The river view patio is my favorite & the new spring menu was wonderful.
