Great food! Good prices! Excellent margaritas! Be prepared to wait outside for a table but it’s definitely worth it! Try the jalapeño margarita!

Everyone in SLC loves Red Iguana! They've been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and the food definitely holds up to the high praise. The mole negro is to die for. The sour cream enchiladas are so, so delicious and the chips and salsa rock!...More

The Red Iguana is killer for a reason. Great food, reasonable prices and superb service. I ordered the Iguana combo plate and couldn’t finish it. Wishing I lived in the area so I could box it up for later.

We checked out the Red Iguana based on its great reviews. We weren’t disappointed! The salsa was the best I’ve ever had. Beers were normally priced (some reviews claimed they were high) staff was friendly and service was fast!
