Great breakfast

We 'happened upon' this famous little restaurant. The home of Ho-made pies. Service was great by a smiley and happy waitress and the sausage and egg breakfast arrived hot and totally tasty. The history is in a little book at the table and it has cute 50's memorabilia inside. I loved it. Well... read more

We stumbled on to this place heading in to Zion NP via the East side. I totally spaced making plans for our The Narrows hike but it worked out because we stopped at this little historical gem and grubbed deliciously while having really sweet servers.

Attached and associated with Best Western but separate owned we were told. Basically, it makes a huge difference in having it located here since choices are limited here in this small community. Nothing fancy here folks but they have breakfast, lunch, dinner. We ate there many times during our stay. Every single time, we had a different waitress, (different shift... More

This restaurant provides exemplary service, so many other restaurants could learn from the Thunderbird Restaurant. The food was absolutely scrumptious. I highly recommend the Rib-eye which was cooked to perfection. The staff were more than willing to serve us even though we arrived on the late side. Our waiter was friendly, professional, helpful, and gave some great tips about the... More

After a delightful stay at the Best Western next door, my girlfriend and I visited Thunderbird Restaurant the next morning for breakfast. It was a very snowy morning during the Nat'l Parks offseason so the crowds weren't out. But the hostess and our waitress were still overly friendly and our omelets were cooked just to our liking. The decor is... More

My husband and I stopped for breakfast en route from Bryce to Zion. They had your typical fare with a few unique dishes. We asked some questions about particular menu items, and our waitress was refreshingly honest...i.e. "I've had better elsewhere." I chose the country fried steak as I've not been able to get real country fried steak since we... More

Such a cute place! Server and Hostess were super sweet. I had breakfast and basically- you really can't screw up breakfast and they did NOT so I was happy. Don't expect gourmet coffee or fancy digs- expect to be caffeinated, have a nice experience and leave with a full stomach.

Really your stopping because the sign is hilarious! The food is typical diner food, nothing special, we stopped for breakfast on our way to Bryce and it was good, plentiful and not overpriced. Just what you expect in a diner. The history and family stories are great and it's at a perfect stopping point, just what you need.
