“Definitely go.”
Reviewed 9 February 2016

They're known for their mole and they'll bring you out a whole plateful to sample. Very busy so we sat at the bar but the service was excellent. Definitely would go back.

“Featured on diners, drive-ins and dives”
Reviewed 9 February 2016

Don't let the long lines outside scare you off. Plan to have to wait and you will not be sorry! The food is fantastic. I have never been disappointed in anything we have ordered. The chile verda is exceptional as is the mole. Lunch or dinner are always busy busy busy! It is larger inside than it appears from the outside.

“Manager ”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 via mobile

The food is very good and large portions. There's nothing wasted on setting though. Go early and stay late.

“Consistently good and novel Mexican Cusine”
Reviewed 8 February 2016

If you like it hot or you like it Mole ( chocolate) this is the place to go. Its really busy during lunch and just after work but if you can get in early before lunch or mid afternoon after the lunch rush is over you wont have much of a wait. There is also a sister restaurant just around the corner near the Tracks, Red Iguana "2" that has the same food in a newer format diner. No matter what you order its going to be good. If you like the fire-breather after taste then there is plenty of dishes there for you. But use caution. I grew up in New Mexico and this place is comparable to the best back home. Cervezas and Margaritas are fast to come out of the bar so you can get those while you pour over the Menu.
