Salt Lake City's Top Ranked Mexican Restaurants

Rio Grande Cafe
Rio Grande Cafe
Since 1981, the popular Rio Grande Cafe has been serving great Mexican food inside the Historic Rio Grande Train Station. They feature a traditional menu along with a variety of favorites including Carnitas, Chimis, and their famous 'biggest enchiladas'. Located downtown, they offer patio dining and locally brewed beer on tap.

The Red Iguana

You just have to see the crowd waiting outside for a seat to know this perennial favorite doesn't disappoint its legion of fans. Inside, the conversations are loud and the decor is bright, but it's the food that's the draw. Nachos, chili verde burritos and moles too numerous to mention are all stand out menu items, as are the margaritas. When they're in town, Tex-Mex band Los Lobos eats there. If that isn't a recommendation, what is?

    La Macarena Family Mexican Restaurant
    Hidden at the back of Ivy Place on 9th East and 4700 South, this tiny Mexican restaurant serves up some of Salt Lakes Best Mexican food! This joint only has 10 booths, and can get rather crowded at times, so please understand if you can't get in or if the wait is long. Three excellent choices are the carne asada, chile verde and the jumbo half beef / half pork burrito plates, all three were mighty tasty.
    They have two locations in the Salt Lake Valley:
