Wow. This place was recommended to us multiple times, so we knew we had to visit. Then we found out it was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, so we HAD to go eat there! It's not in a great part of town and is next...More

Don’t miss this restaurant! Wait is worth it! Custom Marg is the best I’ve had. All the staff was pleasant and attentive.

The red iguana is known for its many molè. Ask for a sampler of all of them. Its a great way to try something new. The steak, bacon and almond molé was outstanding.

Dropped in to Red Iguana for a late lunch. The place was humming, the service excellent and the food super authentic. Well worth a visit while you are in Salt Lake City.

Great margaritas and amazing food. Try their beef chimichangas and arroz con leche for dessert. Service was indeed very good.

The mole is to due for. I have tried moat of them and they are equally delicious. My only complaint is that red iguana is always busy no matter when you go, but that's because it is so good.
