I checked the reviews for the Red Iguana and decided to try it for lunch. We, fortunately didn't have to wait to get seated. Our server brought a taster consisting of no less than 7 different mole's . Amazing, we had not had any mole'...More

It's not just about the food! The atmosphere and service makes this place a neighborhood gem. We had to wait outside for a table which I thought was weird until we went inside. Bustling and tight fitting. The menu was overwhelming. As someone who grew...More

The food here is amazing. The mole's are second to none. If you ask, they will bring out a sampler plate with all the various mole so you can decide on your flavor of choice. I had a special, strawberry. Try a house jalapeño margarita....More

The quality of the food was great and the favors were fantastic! I will go again an again. The location is a little out of the way, but well worth the effort.

This is probably the most popular Mexican restaurant in Utah. I've been back several times, hoping to see what others see, but I don't. Food is just ok, but the service is good.

It's difficult to find good Mexican food in northern Utah! The Red Iguana is excellent. Go early because there's always a wait for a table.

This is one of Salt Lake's best restaurants. They have the best chile verde I have ever found. They also have a wonderful selection of mole dishes. Their selection of chocolate and chiles used to produce mole sauces is also remarkable. I live in Salt...More
