The mole sauces were excellent. There are two restaurants....the number is appealing since it has outdoor seating. If you are a fan of flan they have the best. Must visit if you are in salt lake....

Stopped here because it was reviewed highly. The food was great and the service was even better. Server let us sample some sauces before we ordered, which is unheard of. The serving size is big enough to share. Will require a car/transportation to get to...More

We headed into Salt Lake City from Park City for lunch at this well-known place. Mole was fantastic. Carne Assada tacos demanded the plate to be cleaned. Flan was great too. Well worth the trip.

We live in Colorado and are accustomed to "Tex-Mex". Red Iguana offers delicious authentic Mexican food. They have a TON of gluten free options, too. I wish we had one of these restaurants closer to home!

Went here on the recommendation of my parents. Nice margarita. Food was ok. Bothered me that the guag was cold, isn’t that made to order? I guess not. Long wait outside, the hype is probably not justified, except I haven’t eaten at all the restaurants...More
