“Extensive Selection of Mexican foods.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

After a day of training, we drove to the Red Iguana. There was a wait of 30 minutes but the menu and a glass of water kept us entertained. We started with Guacomole for four. It was fresh and flavorful. Three of us had the sirloin tips & chorizo tacos - three spicy corn tacos with lots of cilantro - very good. Our friend with the big appetite ordered a combo plate. Prior to our dinner he was sure he didn't like mole, however, mid-dinner he changed his mind. He took 1/2 of his dinner back to his room & ate it for breakfast. This is a Mexican restraunt we will return to next time we are in Salt Lake. Their Horchita was refreshing and they happily gave me a glass to go. Friendly, informative staff to help with the extensive menu. Mucho Gusto!

“How do say yummy in Spanish?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

I had heard so many good things about t his place that I thought I'd take a new manager for lunch. We both really enjoyed the meal & the atmosphere. The food was yummy! I'd only had Mole once before, and thought it was awful, so I was hesitant to even try it again. I actually liked most of them on the sampler plate! Nice to be able to try them out before ordering.

“Worth the #1 rating !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The food is fantastic , it has the vibe of a fun, family friendly place. The people working there are very helpful and I don't think you can go wrong if you go with their suggestions !! The yummiest guacamole ever !! A long long line to get a table if you don't get there early !! Don't think twice abt dining at the red iguana !!

“Best Mexican food ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great food! Great selection!
Eight, count 'em, EIGHT mole sauces! And they bring out a plate so you can try 'em before you buy 'em.
Expect a wait, as this place is in high demand. It's worth it!
