Are you ready for a dining experience unlike any other? For over 20 years, we have been serving up tasty authentic Mexican dishes. We’re well known for our selection of rich mole dishes, but we also have mouth-watering fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, and more!

Blue Iguana’s Salt Lake City location is situated in the heart of downtown—just ten minutes from the Salt Lake City international airport. It’s an easy walk to the train, the bus stop, the Convention Center, and City Creek Mall—one of Salt Lake Valley’s finest upscale shopping experiences.

The restaurant is like walking into Abuela’s kitchen—warm, colorful, and inviting, with a lively atmosphere and an open-air patio to boot. The large open dining room is perfect for parties and large gatherings, and the live music on weekends brings the rhythms of Mexico to your dining experience. Come by for lunch or dinner, or just to enjoy a beer, glass of wine, or a mixed drink from our extensive beverages menu.

Our Location

Tucked away in a beautiful little alley, we like to consider ourselves a hidden gem. Nevertheless, we’re not too hard to find—so come on in and try our famous molcajete or our signature margaritas!

Here’s a little information to help you find us!

We’re located in Salt Lake City, right off West Temple on 200 S. Park your car in the parking garage at 175 S. West Temple (yes, we validate parking!). It’s right across from the Salt Palace Convention Center. Then, we’re just a little walk away behind the garage.

On weekdays, you can also take the elevator to Floor 1 and exit the building’s lobby out to the alley. However, the elevator is typically closed by 6pm, so you may need to go around to the garage’s entrance to get back to your car later. Once you’re in the alley, we’re right next to Benihana, and you won’t be able to miss our big neon sign or blue tunnel entrance! From there, you’ll go down the tunnel stairs to reach our restaurant.
