We landed at SLC and headed straight for the Ref Iguana! We enjoyed excellent Mexican food including chili queso, the Red Iguana combo, Chili Verde, and the daily special (no idea what it was called). Good service too.

My brother wants to visit Red Iguana more than me when he’s in Salt Lake City. Excellent food and margaritas. The service is always good.

A lovely little restaurant to enjoy. Had a birthday celebration with friends at this restaurant. Some of the best and most authentic Mexican food that I have ever had.

I had the chili con queso and the asada tacos and both were delicious. I also had several glasses of their Pinot Grigio as well which was awesome. Great atmosphere and great for dates or friends night out.
