My husband and I ate dinner at the Whiptail Grill while staying in Springdale and left Zion one evening to enjoy a second dinner at the restaurant. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I am vegan and my husband has a garlic allergy. We were both very satisfied with dinner each evening. There were families, couples and singles enjoying... More

After a day of hiking we were hungry! The Whiptail has great service, a casual, comfortable atmosphere, and the food was great. Really liked the Squash Enchiladas.

Rarely do I find a Mexican restaurant that I'd highly recommend to others. But this is it. Whiptail grill is phenomenal. The nachos and Chicken enchiladas are some of the best I've had. You also can't be the park views. It's a very casual atmosphere, but the food is top notch. We'll continue to visit for years to come.

My family stopped to eat a late lunch after reading the reviews and we found the same pleasure there as everyone else. It didn't hurt that the weather was fantastic especially for late December. Friendly and knowledgeable service combined with excellent southwestern food. Somewhat outside of that description I ordered the ribs and they were as tasty as advertised. Most... More

I visited Whiptail Grill again during my winter trip to Zion National park and was again left as a happy customer. I ordered the same item as last time that is BBQ Ribs and was again satisfied with the quality and the quantity. Recommended for Ribs and I have not tried any other item from the Menu.

We had a hard time finding the Whiptail Grill on a dark night this month but we were very happy that we persisted. The location is an old service station and part of the building is used for selling t-shirts, postcards, hiking shoes, snacks and whatnot. The dining section feels small but friendly. I had the Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas which... More

We had enchiladas and burgers over here. The french fries served here were quite crispy and tastes different from the normal ones. They were quite differently fried but in all was tasty and delicious.
