Food was awesome. Best pork burrito that I've ever eaten. The inside seating area is small but colorful and the staff was friendly.

I saw a bunch of reviews about this place being people’s best Mexican restaurant experience. Oscar’s certainly isn’t the best Mexican restaurant or my best Mexican experience, but is still a great place to visit. It was a scorching 105 Degrees and it was certainly...a refreshing visit. The service is really very good and our server Sean did a great job. The food came out quick as well as also being very good. We ordered the pesto quesadilla which looks more like a pizza as it is an open faced version. It is really very good. We also ordered the spicy chicken sandwich, the whoopass burger, the Chile verde pork burrito, Chile Verdi enchilada and the shrimp tacos. The shrimp tacos were fresh and fine. The rest were exceptional. The chili verde pork would be exceptional on anything. The ribs looked amazing as well. To summarize Oscars is a place to go for great service and food and is well worth the trip.More

I'm not being hyperbolic by saying I had the best burrito I have ever had. I did the pork chile verde burrito, with black beans and rice. The filling was so flavorful. It had a real smoked pulled pork vibe, but everything was flawless from...a flavor standpoint. My wife had the shrimp tacos, and thought they were phenomenal as well (she thought there was too much cilantro, but i disagreed based on my bites). My kid had a plain burger. Literal quote from my 7 year old: I was so hungry I wanted to cry but when i ate the hamburger it was so good it dried up my tears. Two things to consider: portion sizes are huge, beware;. Our server wasn't the most attentive, but based on the tables around us, I think our gal was just having a bad night.More

The hostess at our hotel recommended Oscar’s. Wow!! So good. My husband had fish tacos and said they were some of the best he’s ever had. I had chicken enchiladas. The flavor can’t be beat. Our server was hilarious. Don’t miss this restaurant!!

Oscar's was very close to our hotel. It was kind of a Mexican type restaurant. For dinner, I had a big chicken burrito that was very flavorful. They had a really good breakfast also.

This was a welcome stop after after a hot tiring day hiking and negotiating traffic in Zion. We enjoyed a plate of chips and salsa in place of the rice and beans that came with my tamales. The portions were very ample and we took...one of the tamales back to our AirBnB and enjoyed it a couple days later. My sister enjoyed the portobello mushroom salad and commented more than once about how good the mushroom tasted. The service was good and we were able to eat outside under cover. We had come into Zion through the East entrance and worked our way south to the main entrance. Springdale is outside the park. With the senior lifetime pass we went back into the main entrance at 6pm which was no longer bumper to bumper crowded so we could drive back through the park and back out of the East Entrance to our AirBnB in Hatch, Utah.More

Due to the over 100 degree temps, we ate outside at Oscar's on the misted patio. It was very pleasant. The menu is varied and the service was excellent from Harry. We had about a 30 min. wait, but it was worth it. Harry made...great recommendations and was helpful in providing to go packaging for left overs. Everyone liked their meals. The salmon salad was very good, and Harry was helpful in ordering local beers. A fun evening.More

We were given breakfast vouchers by our bed and breakfast to eat at Oscar's Cafe every morning and it definitely didn't disappoint. The variety on the menu was great and the quality of each entree was top notch. Best pancakes I ever had !

What an awesome meal after hiking all day. Tons of food and delicious. The patio seating was fabulous. Ashley was our server and promptly waited on my wife and I. The chicken quesadilla came and was huge, looked like a pizza. Would definitely recommend and...return here when in the area.More

Great food and best service of the trip! We mentioned how hot we were from being out of state and having hiked all day, and our server made sure to refill our large, icy waters every time he walked by. Contrast that to the next...night where we went across the street to Meme’s and got one small cup of water with no ice that wasn’t refilled the entire hour+ we were there. It sounds like a small thing, but in terms of trying to stay safe and hydrated, I really appreciated the effort. Our food was fantastic - the salmon, the shrimp tacos, and the kids’ chicken strips were some of our group’s favorites.More

Looked for a place to get some great food at a reasonable price after a long day in the heat at Zion National Park. Found just what we were looking for at Oscar’s Cafe in Springdale. Ate in their covered patio area where the combination...of ceiling fans and misters kept things comfortable. We ordered the Chicken Chorizo Burrito and Grilled Shrimp Tacos. Both were excellent, as was the entire wait staff. The place was quite busy and the staff was very efficient in getting tables ready for the next customers as soon as a table was vacated. Definitely made the right choice in going to Oscar’s Cafe.More

Came here with the family for some Mexican style food. Boy did they live up to it. My husband and I got the lobster and it hit the spot to cap off our vacation to Utah.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it was great! There is always a line but the staff is excellent so the wait is not long. A definite MUST during your visit. Order the pesto tortilla appetizer.. unexpectedly awesome!

The good- nice to sit outside at a restaurant in the middle of Springdale. The bad- the service was almost non-existent, our waitress took our order and disappeared. We ordered the nacho appetizer (chips are not provided) and it was so spicy hot, loaded with...jalepeno, that it was not edible. We like spicy, but this was fire. In need of water, we gave up on our waitress and had to walk to back to request more- no one else was being attentive to our table in her absence. The main courses- the fish were topped with a bed of sour cream and iceberg lettuce and the taste of fish was non discernible. The vegtable enchiladas were swimming in green sauce and tasteless. Had to search for waitress to get bill. Would not return.More
