We went to Whiptail for lunch on our last day in Zion, not having it be our first choice because of reviews we had read, about poor service. We had anything but bad service. Whiptail is a small cafe style establishment located on the main road to Zion. They have imaginative and delicious twists on American and southwestern staples. We... More

This looks like a remodeled gas station with a souvenir shop. The menu is not large but the food is very good. Try the spaghetti squash enchiladas.The staff is friendly and don't rush you. What could be better than a relaxed outdoor meal and a cold one in the shadow of the mountains of Zion National Park?

We definitely enjoyed our meal at Whiptail Grill, especially my wife. Lots of unique selections and including lots of choices for those pesky vegetarians. Inhabiting an old gas station, it's an unusual place with mostly outside seating but don't let that fool you about the quality of the food. My wife declared their chile rellenos the best she'd ever tasted.... More

An eclectic place with food to match. Great food, LARGE portions - sharing a good idea! The service was a bit on the slow side, also waited quite a while for food to arrive. It was a bit busy with all tables full, so not surprised about the wait. Food was worth it, so I recommend you try it!

I entered the small restaurant and asked for a take out order. The manager was abrupt, informed me they didn't do takeout orders. I asked for a table and she said she couldn't seat 6 people inside; we would have to sit outside in the cold. The service was slow, we ordered burritos and burgers, and it took more than... More

Im sorry your visit here was unpleasant but I felt like I needed to reply to correct some of your assumptions about your visit. First of all, Thanksgiving weekend is extremely busy here in Springdale as you know. The way our restaurant is put together is that most of the seating is outside under an awning which is perfect in... More

The food here was great. My wife and I ate here twice for dinner during a 5 day stay in Springdale. I had the carne asada tacos and my wife had the chile relleno. Both were awesome. They have local bottled beer too. Atmosphere is unique with most seating outside, but they have plenty of gas heaters to keep you... More

My husband and I had 2 dinners here, one with very slow service and the other fine. On both occasions, the food was good.
