If it wasn't for Trip Advisor you wouldn't know this place existed! From the outside it looks like part of a gas station! but as we were staying in Springdale we checked out the reviews and this place, quite rightfully came out really well! Fabulous Mexican themed food with beautiful views and a perfectly laid back service. The best meal... More

I ordered the fish tacos and my wife ordered the spaghetti squash enchiladas. The food was very tasty but the portions were too small. Also, the prices were a little high for the size of the dishes.

The Whiptale looks like it took over an old gas station, and if it wasn't for a suggestion from a friend, my mom and I would have easily passed it by. Good thing we didn't! We ate outside and enjoyed fish tacos and carne asada tacos. The carne was very tender and perfectly seasoned. Both were excellent. There was even... More

We (me, my husband and 2 sons, ages 10 and 16) opted to eat here on the recommendation of a guide from one of the adventure companies. I am glad we did. It's very casual and the service is relaxed and friendly. The portions are somewhat small, especially for the price, but the quality of the food is amazing. If... More

We have been coming here since it opened and it never disappoints us. The squash enchiladas are fantastic as is everything else. Service was better than usual. We highly recommend this place.

Attentive staff. Nice and shady. Excellent menu. Salads, grilled stuff nachos etc. Cold beers came quickly and food not far behind. $24 for cold beers and chicken nachos to share. Looking is outside. Ask for key. Clean enough. Attached shop sells hiking gear.

This great little cafe is on the edge of the park with wonderful views. We tried the chile relleno (stuffed with goat cheese!) and the chipotle chicken enchiladas. Both were fantastic spins on traditional New Mexico type dishes. Chilled beer glasses were a nice touch in the 100+ weather, excellent service to boot.
