Authentic food, the best around! Nice selection of beers. If you get there before 5:00 pm you might get seated right away, otherwise prepare to stand in line outside!

If you like Authentic Mexican Food, this is the place. But be sure to plan ahead to wait for at least an hour or make reservations. Try both locations Red Iguana 1 and 2.

This place always has a wait (sometimes very long 1 hour), but it has always been worth it for their authentic style Mexican food!

If you like Mexican, you will probably LOVE Red Iguana. The place is always busy. The service is always fast and the food is always delicious! My favorite are Enchiladas Sonora's! YUM!!!
