I had read that the best Mexican food in SLC was to be found at The Red Iguana. I had to find out if the reports were true. I was not disappointed. Showed up mid week in the middle of the afternoon and the place was packed, but the tables were turning over, so our wait was minimal. Our waitress... More

While visiting Utah stopped here after my daughter gave it rave reviews. The food was very good, loved my shrimp dish had the best flavor! My daughter loves their street tacos and has been here multiple of times. Margaritas were OK, didn't taste much alcohol in them. They cram the tables a bit too close and we were in the... More

We happened to have time in Salt Lake City to go to this highly recommended restaurant. Luckily we were early enough (1130) to get a table without waiting. The service was friendly and fast. The menu is large and has many choices but all portions are huge. No lunch size here and I stuffed myself. I ordered a special and... More

The food was okay, not the best Mexican you'll have, and the service was poor and slow. Won't be going back.

After my first day in SLC I had already heard about this place multiple times so I had to try it out for myself. It did not disappoint. Our server was knowledgeable and informative. I had one of the mole dishes along with the jalapeno margarita. Both were delicious. It has a good atmosphere for Mexican food but the tables... More

This place is one of the best if not the best restaurant in slc. There is always a line here and they don't' take reservations. So its best to go for an early dinner or late lunch. My brother asked for the largest thing they had without looking at the menu. It was 4 plates worth of food and he... More

I love Mexican food. I've had fish tacos at all sorts of places and am one of those people who piles on the extras. I took a bite of the fish and ended up eating it all with a fork. What to do with the taco shells? Made more tacos out of the delicious other food on my plate. Rolled... More

Super casual, unique Mexican. Food was incredible. LOVED, loved loved the mole tasting in the beginning of the meal. It inspired me to order something that I usually wouldn't order. We were super impressed with this place. Do yourself a favor and eat at this place. There were three of us, and with margaritas, the bill was $60. So reasonable.... More
