I had heard a lot about this restaurant once I got into the city. The friends that I joined for dinner quickly agreed with my recommendation of this place. In fact, I found out that they come her quite often. Even at 6:30 p.m. on...More

Without Jonathan keeping this place really sparkling clean (see the photo).......It would just be simply a better than average Mexican joint.....

Be prepared for a worthwhile wait especially on a weekend night. Service in the bar/waiting area was a bit slow but appetizers were fantastic. Packed on Friday night but service in the restaurant was quick and efficient. I recommend to anyone who like Mexican food.

You've seen the justifiable long North Temple lines at the original Red Iguana. Here's an excellent alternative with A+ food, service, and ambiance. The ideal dinner overshadows the somewhat inconvenient parking. Like they said about Miguel on the old Life cereal commercial, "Pruébalo, te gustará"

Red Iguana 2 came about because #1 was getting too difficult to get into. The Mexican food they prepare was just really good. So, just a few blocks away, Red Iguana 2 was opened. Yes, it's by some rail road tracks but the same quality...More
