This is one of those hidden gems of tasty authentic food in a big city. While the other iguana (Blue) is fine, Red Iguana is stellar. Be prepared to have to wait. Every time we come to Salt Lake from out of state my husband...More

We have eaten at the Red Iguana at least 20 times. It is always good. Most days there is a line and a wait to get seated, but it is worth it. Good specialties, good deserts, great guac.

Great enchilada sauces, but the side dishes were bland. The tortilla chips were standard but the guacamole was excellent.

Best Mexican food in Salt Lake valley by a long shot. I have been here roughly 20 times and everything.......literally everything on the menu is delicious. You have to try the Fried ice cream, so good!

I grew up with Mexican food in Arizona and New Mexico and I haven't been surprised in a long time, but my first visit to the Red Iguana was better than expected, and I went in with high expectations. Along with our chips and salsa...More
