Great food, small restaurant

We went here once while staying in Springdale. We sat outside and it was a really nice afternoon. The service was ok, a little slow. But the food was awesome. We enjoyed the food more than at Oscar's, another popular restaurant down the street.

My husband and I went there for dinner in the offseason. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I got the chicken burrito smothered with tomatillo sauce and cheese and the hubs got adobo enchiladas. Enchiladas were too spicy for me, but my husband liked the heat. Food was good. There was a wait as the restaurant only has... More

A wonderful, friendly atmosphere in this unique spot near the entrance to Zion Park. Good selection of local beers (how many places serve Polygamy Porter, and tee shirts featuring the beer with its motto "why have just one") but dinners are excellent. The house specialty----chile relleno with feta cheese---was alone worth the drive from San Diego.

We had to wait a while to get in as this place is very popular. It was undoubtedly worth it though. We enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered and would highly recommend this place for dinner in Springdale.

We picked this restaurant based on Google reviews and because it was close to the hotel. We had no expectations, and were so surprised by the quality of the food that my non-cooking wife declared that she wants to learn to cook so she can make the chipotle chicken enchiladas. I also recommend those, and the chile relleno. The restaurant... More

This is probably the smallest place we have eaten at over the years . The food is okay, a lot of Mexican food . Not a great selection, but what we ordered was not bad . It is a little over priced, but considering the isolation of the town, that is to be expected .

So we stopped here because of the great reviews and because we saw they had an outside area. We were traveling with our service dog but had no vest on him as we figured being that the seating was outside it didn't matter. We were wrong. We hadn't even sit outside yet before the owner came out ushering us away... More

We ate here for dinner after a day in Zion. It's in a converted gas station with indoor and outdoor seating. Very casual and fun atmosphere. What a wonderful dinner - we shared the goat cheese chili relleno for an appetizer. It was delicious. The ingredients were fresh and sauces that accompanied the relleno were amazing. We both had the... More
