Good

Place was packed. Place is a little dated and could use some freshening up. However the service was good and the food was great.

After picking up my husband at the airport, this is almost always the next place we stop! I recently took my sister here when she flew in from California and she loved it too! I think she is "on" with this airport tradition! My sister wasn't sure what to get so she got the Red Iguana plate like I did--it... More

We went here based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. It was just ok. I expected more because it's rated #3 for SLC. We all had the chimichanga and none of us would order it again.

Ultimately the best Mexican food we've ever had north of the border (saw it from Guy Fieri Cooking channel). Everything we ordered was E X C E L L E N T !!!!! The service, the food, the presentation, food temperature, the portions, the atmosphere, the price. I came specifically for the mole. Ask for the mole sampler first; there's... More

I've been coming to Red Iguana for years. Amazing flavors and one of a kind dishes that are not your standard Mexican food. Service is great and the portions are huge. Ask for the mole sampler before ordering to chose one you like.

It is well worth the wait and not a bad price. Great and friendly service. I well return and eat again. Hardest part was deciding what to order. Didn't go wrong with the special.

Visited location while in Salt Lake on business with coworker. She had visited before and she thought I would enjoy. The building is nothing to look at and we had to wait about 45 mins, outside. Very little seating. Once inside the decor is typical of a Mexican restaurant. The waitress was very friendly and quickly delivered our liquid pleasure... More
