Service was a bit slow. I had the nachos and they were burnt on the edges but tasted like they had been microwaved...so not sure how that happened. My husband liked his meal (salad with marinated beef). I don't really recommend this restaurant, but I've had worse.

Loved the food. I ordered the prawn tacos, and my wife ordered the fish tacos. We dared them so we both had one of each. The were both delicious as were the salad and black bean sides.

Ate here as it was right next our hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Quite an informal looking place with staff to match, good sized outside dining area with views of the mountains. Food was really good, fish tacos were good and the Whiptail burrito was excellent. Also has a good selection of beer and prices are reasonable, would definitely recommend.

Had some good nachos. It's not often, however, that a Mexican restaurant is out of guacamole and avocados -- especially when they feature an avocado salad

It is strange that the Whiptail is not busier - perhaps it is because it is kind of off by itself related to other restaurants. The food is really good - the Whiptail Burrito with the verde sauce is the best. Service is OK but a touch slow. Overall, the best dinner we had in Springdale.

We would have passed had it not been for the recommendation from the folks at Zion Adventure Company… Hungry & thirsty after a long day of hiking we hopped off the shuttle for cold craft beers & the best Mexican food in Springdale! We nibbled on chips & salsa while admiring the sunset view. We shared the Stuffed Avocado Salad... More

We were a bit skeptical since the restaurant is a remodeled gas station, but oh my god! What amazing food, staff and view of the canyons from their outdoor seating. I had the Carne Asada tacos and my wife had a generous serving of Mahi Mahi in her salad. Great Salsa. A bit spendy but worth every penny. So much... More

Our inn keeper recommended this place and after reading the reviews my wife and I decided to give it a try. She ordered the chicken tacos and I tried the fish tacos. We both really enjoyed our meals. The habenjero chocolate peanut butter creme brûlée was a great ending. The service was good. Had to wait a little bit to... More

Looks a little strange from the outside...an old gas station converted into a restaurant. But the food was amazing! Plus, sit outside for a great view of the mountains
