    Restaurant was good, not great, but still good. I had steak fajitas since I'm not a big mole person. I'd like to think I'm a good Mexican food critic since there are so many restaurants in Chicago!

    Ask for a mole sampler! You get to try all the different moles & then decide which is the most delicious... Good luck with THAT ;) Also be prepared for a serious wait. But don't worry, it's worth it!

    Great service, fantastic Mexican food. And really great atmosphere. Expect a wait, but they move through the line fairly quickly and it is really truly worth the wait.

    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!

    Negro Mole is to die for-as are Carnitas. If Red Iguana is backed up w/reservations go around block to Red Iguana 2-we walked in & were able to get seats at counter with no wait. #win

    Oh, mole mio! Red Iguana defines Mexican food. We have friends who drive 3 hours round trip for their mole. Try the mole sampler before you order and decide which type you love. Enjoy!

    The latest iteration of the Red Iguana offers the same wonderful dishes in a more spacious setting. Nice patio with view of the trains going by. Ample parking. Much less of a wait than the original Re
