“Best Mexican food in Utah ”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 via mobile

If you haven't eaten here you have been missing out on the best Mexican food in Utah. If there's a line, I suggest waiting in it, you won't be disappointed. A must try are the moles, they are extraordinary! Try the sampler of them, a real party for the taste buds!! They give you so much food there's always leftovers for a late night snack!

“Local gem”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 via mobile

Looking for a place where locals eat. Found this but according to reviews there's always a long line up and was suggested to try the branch at the city creek mall. Did not regret, food is good, priced right and huge serving. We tried the killer nacho's i think and tacos. It was a delicious meal.

“Excellent Mole”
Reviewed 14 March 2017

If you like real, homemade Mole this is the place for you! They have everything you could ask for!
This place is not in the best part of town, but don't worry, you will be safe. It is a quaint little restaurant with tons of south of the Border ambiance and there is also some overflow outside seating which is nice in the warmer months of the year.
If you love "real" Mexican food this is the place. Also try its sister restaurant The Blue Iguana just north of there-not as much mole, but one of my favs!

“What happened to Red Iguana???????”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

I have eaten at Red Iguana many times but on my last visit it was awful and the service was terrible. I ordered a chile verde burrito and left about 75% of it on my plate (which is so not like me). Instead of a nice chile verde taste, it tasted bitter like too much of one spice was added. Hopefully this was a one time bad experience as I have enjoyed Red Iguana in the past.

“Will not Disappoint”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 via mobile

The 39 minute wait outside in the cold was made better by heaters and hot cider. The food and service are fabulous. Too many menu choices just means that we'll be back!
