Its good food but I am not sure it is worth the waiting times. The original Red Iguana is tight and loud. Not worth the hassle.

Lunchtime service was quick (we arrived around 11:20 on a Friday) but on our way out I noticed a line outside so possibly be prepared for a wait. Great food — especially mole sauce. Service was quick and friendly.

Honestly, this place never disappoints. We were there at peak dinner time and were able to be seated quickly (granted there were only 2 of us). I love the food and appreciate the vegetarian options. Definitely loving the remodel and expanded space too.
