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!

Simple food and easy restaurant to eat at. Mexican food is good and try not to over eat. Be careful about the time you go. Many times you must wait over an hour long. Not that fun.
