This is the killer, authentic Mexican restaurant that proves Utah can really spice things up. A perennial people’s favorite, Red Iguana in Salt Lake City has had a lock on City Weekly’s Best of Utah Mexican Restaurant category for what seems like centuries. That’s because The Cardenas family has been dishing up delicious Mexican and Southwestern cuisine in a funky, fun, boisterous and colorful setting since the mid-1980s. For authentic Mexican fare, turn to dishes like Red Iguana’s signature cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork loins), papadzules (tortillas with eggs and pipian) and puntas de filete a la Norteña (sirloin with bacon). All the dishes at Red Iguana will have you thinking you’re in Oaxaca.
