The Red Iguana is busy and jamm packed whenever we want to go. That's because the food and staff are awesome! Well worth it if you have to wait.

The food and service were equally great. The horchata is super delish. Definitely worth eating here. The food does not taste processed, it tastes like it was made at home.

You wont regret eating at Red Iguana. It's delicious, unique, quality food. Ask to sample the mole. Great music sometimes at night. Favorites include tacos don ramon, huevos rancheros, killer nachos, mole sampler, and the sour cream enchiladas. We always bring visitors here.
