New Airport Location Now Open!

Authentic Mexican Food in SLC

Are you ready for a dining experience unlike any other? For 25 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—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. Our downtown location is just ten minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. With our new airport location, you can now enjoy our delicious Mexican cuisine conveniently before or after your flight. Learn more about our airport location here.


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!

We don’t want you missing out on any of our delicious entrees or refreshing drinks so, here’s a little information to help you find us!

We’re located in Salt Lake City, right off West Temple on 200 S. We suggest that you 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 all you need to do is walk around the parking garage and you’ll see the Blue Iguana tunnel.

On weekdays, you can also take the elevator in the parking garage, to Floor 1 and exit out of 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 underneath Benihana, and you won’t be able to miss our big neon sign or our signature blue tunnel entrance! From there, you’ll go down the tunnel stairs to reach our restaurant.


For the last 20 years, Blue Iguana has been offering Salt Lake City an authentic Mexican dining experience unlike any other. Come and get a taste of Mexico and make your reservation today!

Our reservations fill up quickly, so you’ll want to call ASAP! Whether you’re celebrating or just hungry, call us at (801) 533-8900 and we’ll be happy to serve you!

Blue Iguana 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.

We can’t wait to meet you!
