Like most modern conflicts, the rivalry between soft and hard tacos will not end until one side gets eaten by a bear. Broker a culinary truce with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican and American fare at Iguana Wanna.
Stateside-slanted takes on Mexican classics populate the menu at Iguana Wanna, an eclectic culinary zone where tacos peacefully coexist with corn beef and cabbage. The house's specialty pasta headlines nightly chew-a-thons and blossoms with a choice of chipotle-infused shrimp or tilapia, all intertwined with angel hair and a mélange of zucchini, carrots, and cilantro as fresh as a just-harvested pick-up line ($16.99). Iguana Wanna's turf-surfing steak and shrimp ($13.99) accessorizes 10 ounces of rib eye with four sautéed, diabla'd, or ranchero-style shrimp. Lunch specials include the shrimp taco, jam-packed with grilled bell peppers, monterrey cheese, and guacamole ($8.95), or the La Iguana Torta, a French roll bedecked with jalapeno, mustard, refried beans, and a choice of razor-thin meats as diaphanous as a ghost's nightgown ($7.25).
Iguana Wanna's chefs have been cooking up a hearty menu of Mexican specialties peppered with some carefully curated American selections for five years. In between Thursday’s corn beef and cabbage special and Taco Tuesdays, they fill bellies with chile rellenos, burritos, meaty burgers, and generous pastas during lunch and dinner service. These diverse feasts can be enjoyed in Iguana Wanna's dining room or on their expansive patio.
