The Iguana Mexican Grill, in short, is your local spot where you can come and enjoy yourself every day of the week.  Our menu is designed around our extensive knowledge of tequila pairing, yet stands alone unto itself.  When you combine the atmosphere with a traditional style cuisine and a special variety, we can assure you that you and your family will be coming back.

The downtown Iguana Mexican Grill is the long awaited rebirth of the Iguana name. What started out as a casual Nichols Hills restaurant, turned into a city full of fans and followers. Steve Mason, owner of Iguana, had made a very difficult decision to close the Nichols Hills location. Citing building and parking problems, the restaurant was in need of resurgence.

Setting his sights on the urban crawl, Steve waited until he felt the timing was right, and enlisted Robert Painter as a partner to get the project rolling.  Their hopes were to gain new customers and while welcoming back the old with the classics from the Western Avenue location.  This June of 2013, our downtown Grill location will celebrate its fifth birthday, and yet still be affectionately known as “the little taco stand by the railroad tracks”.

In these five years, we continually pride ourselves on our local ties.  From large corporate catering events for local businesses to remembering familiar, friendly faces coming through the front doors each night, we appreciate our place in Oklahoma City.    Our downtown location has been voted “Best Downtown Restaurant” in the Oklahoma Gazette’s “Best of” four years consecutively.  Last year The Iguana was finally voted “Best Mexican Restaurant”.    Here at the Iguana Mexican Grill, we take our accolades seriously, and have both the locals and visitors of Oklahoma City to thank.

This place is the bomb. The queso is on point and their specials never disappoint. Taco Tuesday is a must here but get there early or you might miss out. Also Zachary M is the best server I've had in this place. I've never had a bad server there but his service inspired me to write the review (and I've been coming here for years)

Solid local food with good taste. Service was fast and fun. Lunch specials had lots of flavor. Not spicy or really zesty. Definitely toned down because it is OKc.

Food is awesome and the service is impeccable. We just love this place. We also just recently realized that tea and sodas are $3 a piece. Three dollars for a tea? Three dollars for a little syrup and carbonated water? This is not a resort. Water, water, water.

Pretty good local spot. Good food, pretty good service, clean. A little pricey but it is upscale Mexican food.

One of my favorite places to eat in OKC. Their food always tastes incredibly fresh and the guacamole is amazing. Be sure and try the corn side dish and I've yet to have any meal that wasn't great!! I'm particularly fond of the chicken tacos and the shrimp salad!

Iguana is really good at what they do. I like their drinks, and I like their food. They have an easy atmosphere that is cool, but the reason they get 4 stars instead of 5 is that their food is pretty expensive for what it is. Perhaps there is something driving up the price that I'm not aware of, but at this point I just don't get it.

I had a bowl of chicken tortilla soup, which was very flavorful! The bowl was pretty small for $8, though. The complimentary chips and salsa were great: you could taste that the salsa was made recently with fresh ingredients. Oh, but the tables in the lower section where we were sat were uncomfortably close together (as in I had to clamber over the chair next to me just to get out of my seat).
