"Yes, there may come a day when Red Iguana won’t win City
Weekly’s Best Mexican award; that’s when pigs will fly. A perennial
readers’ favorite, Red Iguana is the longtime champ in this category for
its wide-ranging, always-appealing Mexican cuisine and a menu that
travels from Oaxaca with its magnificent moles to Veracruz (pescado a la
Veracruzana), and from Tampico’s carne asada to New Mexican chile
Colorado. Amazingly, given the big crowds at Red Iguana, the servers are
always smiling, professional and friendly.
