We went at 6p on a Sunday night and still needed to wait 30 minutes for a table for two. The inside is not terribly large but service is quick and efficient. The chile con carne is delicious and the salsa is fresh but spicy if anyone in the group has a mild palate. My son had cheese enchiladas which... More

We visited on a Friday around 1 pm. They said it would be a 25 minute wait, but we were seated in 5 minutes. The waitress was proactive and asked about food allergies!

Incredible selection of mole dishes and very attentive service. Authentic. Wish we had a Red Iguana in Atlanta. We will be back!

You might have to wait a bit to get in, but it's well worth it. After all of my visits I've yet to order the same menu item twice. I've been happy every... More

Great Mexican food! The problem is it is so good that there is always a lineup to get in. The restaurant does not take reservations so there is no avoiding it… But it is so worth it… Delicious!

We went there because of the reviews. I thought it was ok but my husband really liked it. I liked the salsa very much but so much the chips. I got the steak tacos and they were ok. My husband got the shredded pork and flavor was excellent.
