  • laura reviewEXCELLENT! We were very pleased with our meal at the Red Iguana. The food had amazing flavor and everything was very fresh. My children (7 and 4) loved it there, and my 4 year old asked if we could go back everyday! Though we can't return daily, we will definitely be back!

  • MJ C.Red Iguana 2: same food / less WAIT than Red Iguana 1. Chili Verde and Carnitas were super DELISH. The next to us had the HUEVOS Motulenos: Carnitas with eggs - that's what I am having next time!

  • Sarah L.Drink the salsa. It is amazing.

    55555 by Sarah L.
