“Always a great meal!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

We ate here again (#2 location) after returning to SLC for a vacation. Ate here originally several years ago. It was excellent then, it's still excellent!

Try it if you haven't already!

“A "Must-Have" in SLC! Excellent Mexican Food!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The original Red Iguana came highly recommended, but the line was outrageous, so we hit up the sister location around the corner! Very good food, excellent service, good margaritas and I was introduced to "mole" which is a really interesting myriad of flavors! Try the Red Iguana combo for a little of everything. Don't miss this place while in Salt Lake. Enjoy!

“Really good mole negro and Chile Verde”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

On a family ski trip we stopped in for an early dinner, thereby avoiding the much mentioned waiting time. Excellent guacamole, Epic ale, too-sweet horchata, piquant mole and deeply flavored chile verde. Only complaint were the cold, commercial tortillas served with the entrees. A quick visit to a griddle could make a big difference.

“Mexican Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The service was good, and the food was interesting. They are known for their "mole" sauces. The waiter brought us a plate of the different sauces. His recommendations about some of their special meals were very helpful.

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Tried to go to the original several times, and there is always a line. Hit this one on the last trip out and it was worth the short wait to get a seat. Very good food, good service, friendly people. Highly recommended.
