Very simple restaurant with outside seating that surprises you with the quality of their food. Great location just outside Zion park and walking distance from our B&B.

A number of our group do not eat meat. This is a good place for that. We had a large group and they gave us our own room. Very accommodating.

This little, inexpensive hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant served us the tastiest meals we had all week in Springdale! The food was really, really good. Good options for bottled beer; no draft beer (darn). We ate there twice. People had raved to us about other restaurants in town, most of which we found acceptable but not impressive. This was the real exception!... More

The food was fresh and innovative. Service was friendly, but a bit slow. However, the setting is so beautiful that we were happy to sit and enjoy the view.

We stayed in Zion for 3 days. And after trying this restaurant for the first time, we were literally hooked... We went there every single day, and we didn't get disappointed even once. The place is small and funky, but it has a lot of charm, great view, very friendly service and delicious food. We had Chilli Rellenos, Spagetti Sqauch... More

Loved the guacamole, but the entries weren't too inspiring. Spaghetti Squash enchilada was unique, and ok. The carne asada tacos were okay. The ambience was great and the service friendly.

You don't want to pass ups meal here, I don't care how tired you are. Our party of four headed to Springdale just to check out this place, we've heard so much about it. And I know why. It's fantastic. The food is great, the view is great, the service is great (you get the picture). Even the gift shop... More

We had an early dinner at the Whiptail Grill after a long day of hiking within Zion Park. The restaurant is located in a converted gas station on the North end of Springdale...nice retro style. There is somewhat limited seating here as the place was rather small. My son and I had the Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas (with a nice tomatillo/... More

You can't tell from the outside of this restaurant, but this is truly a hidden gem near Zion. We sat down on the patio with no expectations, and were blown away by the quality and inventive meals that we were served. Just incredible, fresh and tasty food of superior quality. A very funny and friendly waiter! Also the chocolate ganache... More

We stopped in after reading the favorable reviews on this board. While the staff was nice, friendly and checked on us often, the food was unremarkable and pretty flavorless with the only real bits of taste coming from jalepenos. Pretty disappointing visit.
