    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.

  • Su Casa? Are you serious?

    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.

    Su Casa's on State Street in Midvale. You can't go wrong there.

    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.
