Señor Iguanas local chain is rapidly growing, and has recently expanded into St. Matthews with their Dutchman’s Lane location. The Louisville and Southern Indiana Mexican grill & bar features an authentic Mexican menu with some bolder flavors and variations from the typical Mexican menus around the city. I have visited the new location for lunch and dinner, and have been told this location is now serving breakfast from 7-10 AM. This area is home to many area hospitals and businesses, but a true, sit-down Mexican restaurant in the Dupont area was something that has been missing, so it is a great addition. Drop by the bar for a margarita or dinner before of after catching a movie at Village 8, or stop in at lunch, relax and enjoy a reasonably priced meal on a busy weekday.
My first visit was at dinner time on a busy Friday night during the opening weeks of the restaurant. The Fish Tacos caught my eye, three double corn tortillas filled with grilled tilapia and pico de gallo, served with a “guacamole salad,” a side of guacamole atop some shredded iceberg. Our server was very attentive and happy to oblige to my request of extra cilantro on the side.
I stopped in for lunch last week. A broad lunch menu is offered and includes Burritos, Lunch in a Hurry, Tacos de la Calle, Combos, and Especialidades. Without much debate, I opted for the 2 Tacos de la Calle and a cup of shredded chicken tortilla soup combo. I was quickly served a cup of piping hot soup, topped with fresh avocado slices and tortilla strips with a slice of crispy baguette. The tacos were served in mini corn tortillas, or as they call them in Mexico “street” tacos with ground chicken (very spicy, I might add) shredded cilantro, diced onion, and lime wedges on the side for $7.99. Complimentary chips, fresh salsa and a Mexican style ranch dip are brought to every table. Señor Iguanas will rapidly become a routine spot for lunch and dinner for this Mexican food lover!
