Ramon and Maria Cardenas started in the restaurant business more than forty years ago. Ramon was born in San Luis Potosi. Maria, born in Chihuahua, Mexico, died in 2002. Together they shared a passion for Mexican cuisine and created recipes and dishes proudly served as delicious expressions of their cultural background.

The Red Iguana Restaurant opened its doors in 1985 to resounding applause and numerous local and national accolades. The Cardenas family has had the pleasure of serving their dedicated customers in the Salt Lake Valley since 1965 with the Casa Grande and Red Iguana restaurants. Ramon and Maria created unique yet traditional Mexican recipes, now passed down to Cardenas children. [From the website]
