The best Mexican food in Utah. I go to the Red Iguana and least once a month. I tell everyone to go!

Don't waste your time anywhere else, RI2 (and the original) has the best Mexican food in Utah. They have a large selection of moles and their tacos are the best I've ever had (Tacos a la Iguana = 😍). The only downside is that there is ALWAYS a wait, often more than an hour. But it's worth it. Go back... More

Definetly if you are looking for and craving for some mexican food in Salt lake city, this is your place, watch out that its always packed, so make some time to go there for lunch... Tamales, enchiladas are the best !! Ask for their salsa trial, you cant loose and pick one as your favorite.. i must say...all those sauces... More

Not the best area of town but the food especially the Mole's are amazing! It has a better ambiance then the original Iguana. The cocktails are pretty good as well.

partook at the red iguana 2 and the food was just average, the chocolate mole was very poor. not all it was hyped up to be.

I know we are the only ones who seem to dislike the entire Red Iguana experience. The food comes out cold, the service is slow, and the servers are rather impatient. While the food is authentic, the place is crazy busy and you may get overlooked unless you're impatient right back to the servers. Eh, I'll pass.

Always great food. Awesome food. The second location is about 2 blocks away from original location. Both good but newer and more room.

Had a great meal here that was worth the wait! I had a carnitas plate- it was tender and flavorful. Loved their beans and rice, chips and salsa. Very yummy, affordable and fast once we got seated. Lived up to it's rep!
