I have had grilled chicken salads every place you could possibly find one. Hands down the one at the Green Iguana is the best. This is a super friendly place to eat with a cool atmosphere. Great service and food.

Every time I visit Port Lavaca, I stop here. Justin and his staff typically take great care of you. They have a neat bar top dining space, and great food. The meal portions are great. Pricing is decent and fair. The lunch specials are always great if you get them early enough.
