Juan will be canceling the BOGO Wednesday special as we start 2020. It was a very successful promotion over its long life, but promotions must help to build sales and when they become stagnant they fade away...Remember to Keep coming for your FREE BIRTHDAYS!      Last BOGO Wednesday is 01/22/20


We have released our new Catering Carryout Menu - We now offer a smaller sized buffet along with the larger sized buffets you have purchased before. To see this new menu just go to the Juan's Specials Box above and click on the "Food Specials" button.  Great for family dinners and co-worker sharing for work meals or to combine with our larger size buffets to fit your event size or create a variety of meal options.


How long has Juan & the Iguana been preparing and serving their style of Mexican & Mexican-American foods?  Lets see - 1990.........2020   We are the original Mexican Food Dive in SWFL....started with nothing...plastic chairs, stacked cases of beer in the dining rooms as part of our decor & limited cooking equipment.  For 29 years we have cooked & served tasty foods which keep people coming back year after year....High Season is about to get rolling as soon we should start to see the short term stay winter tourists in bigger numbers who will be blending with our longer term winter resident friends already here. Come and get something to Eat now before the lines and wait times get long. Last two weeks of February and all of March are LOCO....more people here than available restaurant seats. We love you SWFL....thanks for loving us too!


*Please note that Store Card balances may only be used to purchase goods (food and or beverage) as stated on back of cards so sales tax and gratuities will need to be paid by cash or credit card. Otherwise, we will not be able to add future Promotional credits on Store Cards. Thank you*    In addition, for help or services related to Store/Gift Cards such as lost cards, combining multiple card balances, etc. will be available only on weekdays and a fee up to $25 per issue which will be deducted from any balances before we start.

   ONLINE ORDERING SCAM - Iguana Mia does not process online orders itself nor do we authorize a 3rd party to process online carry-out orders or any delivery service for our restaurants. *** To Many Ordering Options folks***  Please call 866-639-3287 (866-MEX-EATS) and follow promps to "habla" to a live human person to order up some tasty Mexican food for carry-out.



We will never microwave or precook your food! All of our entrees are made to order, which may take extra time, but we believe that our Mexican food is consistently the best in town.

If we do not exceed your expectations, please ask for the Dining Room Manager immediately. A great relationship is a two way street, so please share your concerns well before checkout. Only in this way can we immediately work to correct an issue affecting your dining experience. No restaurant can be perfect, but we strive to make things right, Juan says "We no read minds mi amigos. Upon your notice we will remake or replace any item, but if you eat it or drink it first, you bought it"

Iguana Mia 101

Iguana Mia

Iguana Mia’s name, the locally infamous exterior color and the story of Juan & his Iguana were all conceived on a cocktail napkin in April of 1990 in the lounge of the Prawnbroker Restaurant.

The Original Iguana Mia opened for business on September 26th 1990 in the current Cape Coral restaurant site. The Fort Myers location was opened in 1995, followed by the Bonita Springs location in 1999.
