Iguana-on-a-stick, the wasteland's finest chow!

Iguana-on-a-stick is one of the cuisine delicacies of the post-apocalyptic universe of the Fallout series of games. It is relatively simple wasteland fare, consisting of one iguana, skewered on a sharp wooden stick, and roasted over an open fire in its own skin.

If one has a discriminating palate, however, one should be certain to only eat the variety where one can clearly see the iguana itself on the stick, as pictured right. Another variety, consisting of diced cubes of charred meat with vegetables on a stick, as pictured below, may not always actually be iguana meat - in Fallout 1, the player will discover that this type of "Iguana"-on-a-stick is actually made with human meat provided by Doc Morbid in Junktown, presumably because dead humans are far more plentiful in the harsh wasteland world than dead iguanas.

The not-so-Iguana variety, for those with cannibalistic tendencies!

The primary provider of Iguana-on-a-stick (and the human meat alternative) in Fallout 1 is the Bob's Iguana Bits kiosk located in the downtown area of The Hub. In Fallout 2, Bob's son sells the delicacy at Son of Bob's Iguana Bits in the bazaar district of NCR, however unlike his unscrupulous father, Bob Jnr. only uses quality iguana meat, and is offended by the very suggestion that any other kind of meat was ever used. In Fallout Tactics, the snack can be bought and sold at the Brotherhood of Steel quartermarter or the various wasteland traders, like everything else.
