Seedy part of town but the food is excellent. Great service, good margaritas, excellent food selections. Go early as you have to stand outside during peak hours but well worth the wait.

I've need to Red Iguana many times and there food I'd delicious. The only thing I'd personally change is their salsa and make it more chunky. Wait times can be super long as well. Get the Enchilada Sueza!!
