I love Red Iguana if you haven't gone there already, you definitely need too. The mole is to die for and my kids love their guacamole as do I.

What a great find! In SLC for business and decided to try Red Iguana. The mole was phenomenal as were the fish tacos. Definitely worth the wait outside under the heat lamps!

There's always a line at Red Iguana but it's always worth the wait. I haven't had anything that I haven't liked. It never disappoints.

This restaurant is an iconic eatery in SLC. Although the area of town might not be the best, it has some of the best Mexican in around. The Mole's are as good as it gets. The cocktails aren't bad either.

I never knew there was so many mole flavors. Ask for the mole sampler when your server first arrives. Some moles are almost like an Indian curry, but lighter. Amazing.
