The Red Iguana is an iconic Mexican restaurant in Salt Lake City. The food is authentic and superb. When you first see the restaurant, you wonder as it is an old building brightly colored. There is nothing fancy from the outside, but it has tremendous character. When you see the people lining up around the building you sense there is something special going on inside and there is. There is even more character inside this building. Tables are close and the floors change levels as you wander into different rooms. It is an adventure. The waitresses are kind and service very good. The food tops everything off as the flavors are a feast for the palate. The menu is full of Mexican specialties all of which looked delicious. The sauces are their own originals and light the palate with flavors, not heat. Truly, one of my favorite Mexican restaurants anywhere. Restauranteur, Guy Fieri endorsed the Red Iguana as well! Note, unless early, waits can be lengthy, but for me it is worth it.
