Located in Neptune Beach, in the Beaches Town Center, Flying Iguana serves an exciting fusion of Latin American cuisine. Be sure to come thirsty, they boasts over 100 tequilas to choose from along with a great selection of local craft brews.
Flying Iguana is both hip and laid back all at the same time. It has a large modern bar and lots of indoor and outdoor seating. Much like Hawkers, it gets a great ocean breeze year round, making the patio a prime spot for eating and people watching. They have a small front and side patio and both are pretty busy most of the time. Some nights (mostly on the weekends) Flying Iguana features live music. You can always check their site to see who is playing and when.
Flying Iguana has a full bar featuring wine and beer as well as craft cocktails. They offer several several local Jacksonville ales, if you’re looking to drink like a local. They also has the largest selection of tequila in Jacksonville, so if you go be prepare to taste some of their amazing hand crafted margaritas.
The first thing you should order when you sit down at Flying Iguana is the hand made guacamole. They make it table side and I dare say it’s the best in the city. Once you’ve feasted on guac, check out their selection of eclectic tacos and creative entrees. We usually pick a few different tacos each time so you always get to try something new.
