Blue Iguana - Salt Lake City
Trained by the culinary artists of Chihuahua, our head chef, Chef Castillo, cooks up some of the most mouth-watering and unexpected Mexican cuisine outside of his homeland. After he learned closely guarded recipes created in the tradition of generations-old Aztec cuisine, Chef Castillo began applying these techniques to create everything from classic Mexican dishes to modern cuisine.
Our restaurant is warm, inviting, family-friendly, and full of energy. Dining at the Blue Iguana is more than a meal—it’s a journey back in time to the tastes and sounds of old-world Mexico.

Wrong dishes came to our table. Took 20-30 min to correct. Was a mess but only way they made up for it was taking 10% off our bill! I wouldn’t try this restaurant again.
Love Blue Iguana!
The atmosphere is fun and the food was very good
Everything was perfection. Our server was very helpful and letting me know it was great on the menu and what she suggested. This also is very spicy and homemade. I enjoyed all the drinks especially the skinny margarita. They validated parking and great location. Highly recommend
Avoid this restaurant - filthy kitchen, bad service, accessibility is very poor, terrible food and the margarita was 90% sugar.
such a great atmosphere and even better food! went there for our first time and definitely are headed back soon!
Excellent food and great service!!!! Definitely recommended
Great fish tacos and chili verde enchiladas! Very good salsa with chips. Margaritas are overpriced.
Thank you for the feedback! Please be sure to come on National Tequila Day (July 24) for our drink specials!
Food wasn’t great and neither was the service

I couldn’t find parking right away but it is right next door you get validation at the restaurant it gives you 90 minutes of free parking. Food was fantastic ambience was super service was very good I enjoyed dining if I go back To Salt Lake CityI will go there again.
William, we are so happy you enjoyed your experience. We can't wait for you to come back to SLC and dine with us again!
Amazing, meat was amazing, drinks were great, strong but great.
Thank you for the 5-star review! We hope you come again soon!
Great experience. Our server wasn’t really attentive to the section he was in. It was extremely loud also felt like the tables were way too close to others tables. The food was excellent! Though few complaints we did have a great time! I’d come back again I’d back in the area.
Thank you for the positive rating and the feedback. We can't wait for you to come back and dine with us again!
I reserved a table outside and enjoyed a delicious margarita (the highlight) and veggie tamales with rice and beans. One of my tamales was hard on the edge but I enjoyed the green sauce. Beans were excellent. Chips and salsa very underwhelming. Service was efficient and overall outdoor decor was charming and relaxing. I dined before the dinner crowd started arriving and made reservations in advance. Definitely recommend reservations because within 15 minutes indoor dining was full.
Thank you for the positive rating! We hope you'll come again so we can show you a true 5-star Blue Iguana experience!

Great to accomodate a large group on short notice.

Great place for date night or girls night
Thanks for the 5-star review! We hope you come again soon!
Food was hard to find under massive amounts of garnishes. Margaritas were nasty, tasted like chemicals not lime. Way over priced.
We appreciate the feedback. Should you wish to discuss your experience further, please email us at biguana@aol [dotcom]. Thank you!

Great fish tacos. Very good chile verde enchiladas, too. Margaritas are overpriced.
Thank you for the overall positive review!
The service was not very friendly but the food came quickly and was delicious. Finding the restaurant and also finding parking was tricky but once we figured it out it was fine.
Thank you for the feedback! We hope you come again soon!
Awesome as always!
Thank you for the 5-star review!
Fun atmosphere with delicious food. The service was good. Overall everyone was happy with their meal. The margaritas were reasonably priced and tasted good. I had the Jalapeño margarita which was not that hot but flavorful. The strawberry margarita was also enjoyable. Nachos and guacamole are how we started our meal with tacos, fajitas and each one was top notch.
Elizabeth, thank you for leaving us such a positive review! We can't wait to have you back here again!
Wait staff completely inattentive. I sat with my drink empty for 2/3rds of my meal AFTER I stopped one of them to ask for a refill. The food was fine, but not exceptional. I think they're counting on the notariety of the brand and it'll eventually fail because the product doesn't live up to the hype.
We appreciate the feedback. We also appreciate your patience with us as we work on increasing our staff. In the restaurant industry, there is a real demand for more employees to meet the needs of guests as we all progress out of the pandemic. However, we are hiring, and we're confident that you'll be able to see a 5-star experience should you visit us again in the future.
Cute place. I loved the ambiance. I am not normally a fan of Mexican food, but this food was outstanding. Price was very reasonable, most meals were less than $14. Highly recommended.
Cloudy, thank you for your 5-star review and recommendation! We hope to see you again soon!
Great food, great service and great atmosphere!!
Thank you for the 5-star review!
Blue Iguana never disappoints. The chorizo, grilled shrimp and pineapple tacos are amazing. So are their fajitas. So is the poblano mole. So are their rice and beans. Service is consistently fast and friendly. Weekends can be busy so get a reservation, but otherwise I usually get seated quickly without a reservation.
Benjamin, we love your review! Thank you so much, and we can't wait for you to come back again!
The food doesn't disappoint in flavor and freshness. The night was busy and our waitress forgot a few things throughout the night but it was still a great experience. We had the 5lb Burrito, shrimp and tacos and they were all great.
Elena, thank you for the positive review! We hope you'll come again, so we can show you a true 5-star Blue Iguana experience!
No easy Handicap Access. Handicap Access is through the kitchen.
Thank you for the positive rating. We certainly understand any frustration you may have with this and hope you were still able to have an enjoyable experience.
We held a graduation lunch here. They were very accommodating and helpful.
Kim, thank you for choosing Blue iguana to celebrate such a special day!
Party of 12 for a graduation celebration. Table was ready, service was amazing and food was delicious. Amazing and memorable time. We always had dinner at the Blue Iguana whenever we'd come to SLC to visit our daughter at the U so it was the perfect place to have her graduation dinner. Everyone had a wonderful time!
Thank you so much for the great 5-star review! We can't wait for you to come back to visit your daughter, so we can have you here again with us!
Great fun place manager was great extremely helpful
We're so happy to hear about your 5-star experience. Please come again soon!
Loved the food!! Also thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful music performed by Jean Pierre de Rurange.
Thank you for the 5-star review and for giving a shout out to Jean Pierre! We love having him sing in our restaurant! We hope you come again soon!
Food was absolutely terrible. Never have I had a worse experience at a Mexican restaurant.
Hi Kyle, thank you for the feedback. Please email us at biguana@aol [dotcom] if you'd like to tell us more about your experience. What you have to say is valuable to us!
It was mediocre at best, the food was instantly forgettable and the service wasn’t bad but wasn’t good. Will not be back.
