It still will not have the same ambience. Red Iguana #1 is on the most
"colorful" block in the city, a block anchored on one end by the Red Iguana and
on the other end by the Blue Boutique.
Su Casa's on State Street in Midvale. You can't go wrong there.
red iguana is terrible...
I'd rather eat Taco Time. Su Casa is nothing but cheese, really bad fake
tomatillo (read:catsup, ketchup) salsa, and more cheese. Nothing
matches Red Iguana. Hands down, best authentic Mex in the state. And don't even
go near Cafe Rio.
Mexican food like other food is very subjective so not everyone agrees and
that's good, it allows for more restaurants for all to try and enjoy. As
for me, I like all sort of Mexican food. I like Rio Grande and terribly miss Dos
Serranos and if you want to go wayyy back, Tijuana Tilly's that used to be in
the Fashion Place mall parking lot many years ago. Cafe Pierpont used to be good
back in the 80's but in my view is horrible now.Still, I love Red Iguana
and it holds a special place for us. We've been eating there for years and it's
always good. I never liked standing out along the street waiting for my name to
be called but that's part of the funky side to the place. The food is always
good and you cannot, repeat cannot beat the moles there. We've not eaten
at the new joint though we plan to go soon. It sounds like now we'll have two
different ambiances to choose from while eating the same great food! I only hope
for less crowding now.
