“Best Mexican in SLC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

If you haven't tried this mom and pop restaurant in Salt Lake City then you are missing out. Maria and Manuel do a great job with every menu item. The salsa is to die for and be sure you ask for a jar to go! I have lots of favorite dishes, but my go-to fav would be the enchiladas. I have never tasted a better sauce. The rice and beans are definitely tasty and you won't find any greasy spoon Mexican food here. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu and Manuel and Maria will make sure your dining experience is top notch. Red Iguana is overrated and you'll find La Morena just up the street! Try it!
