We had several meals in Zion and this was the best meal hands down - I wish we had found it the first day. Terrific food, great service!!!

“Great spicy food and fantastic side salad.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Before I start reviewing I have to mention that we ate a relatively early dinner - around 6:30 P.M. on a Thursday night, and the restaurant wasn't very busy, so some of the negative comments regarding service from other reviewers didn't apply to us. Our service was great, as was the food, although a bit spicy, and the side salad was one of the best I have ever had. We finished off my wife's cold leftovers a couple days later for lunch and they still tasted great. The indoor seating is limited, so be prepared to be outside. You can't beat the view!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We ate lunch here after a hike (the fire asada taco's are unbelievable!) and liked it so well that we returned for dinner.Service & food outstanding. Only downside is that if the weather is adverse, most of the seating is outside. With that in mind, I'd gladly wear a jacket or put up with a little rain to enjoy this place.

“Solid lunch choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The restaurant looks like a converted gas station where you sit in the outdoor area. We had no idea when we sat that it was a real, table-service restaurant (as opposed to counterservice). The food turned out to be quite good and far above what you might expect for a small, roadside type location. The service was friendly and sitting outside in the sun was quite relaxing.
