Great mexican food - extensive menu that needs to be explored. Very reasonable prices. There was a lie-up outside at 6 pm on a Thursday - so yes this place is popular amongst locals and visitors alike....

We ate at the Red Iguana because Guy Fieri recommended it. It was good. I had the Mango Enchilladas at the suggestion of our waiter and it was very good. My husband had the chicken tacos, which were bland. I don't think the meat was seasoned at all. It was a fun atmosphere...I recommend eating here.

Regardless of what you order - it is going to be authentic and delicious! I frequent this establishment and the food is a delight every time. And when I visit #2 - same thing.

Good authentic Mexican food. West of downtown but easy enough to park. Crowded; there will be a wait at lunch. Utterly casual.

If you are looking for authentic, GOOD Mexican food this is the place!! It is packed, and you can usually plan a minimum time of about 20-30 minutes wait to be seated. I suggest going for lunch when it opens at 11:00 or an early dinner to avoid the crowds. Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious. Red Iguana... More

This is a mom and pop that has expanded to several location without losing any value or quality. All the locations are off the beaten path and may be viewed as not the best neighborhoods, but we've never had any problems. They do have a shop in the City Creek mall that serves some of the same items but on... More

I was looking forward to this return visit and they didn't disappoint. I was thinking about the mole about 100 miles outside of SLC and my GPS brought me right into the parking lot. To help me decide which Mole I wanted (they have 6 different flavors) so they brought me a sampler plate. I chose the Mole Negro and... More

I've been here several times. The food has always been good. Service has always been attentive and prompt. The wait is always annoying.

It isn't just for tourists. Great reputation from locals too! One problem it is so popular that there is frequently a long wait. Solution: Got to Red Iguana 2. It's not far and equally good.
