We came across this unique restaurant outside of Zion National Park and were surprised at the quality of food. My husband loves chili rellanos so we tried their appetizer version. It was delicious and beautifully plated. I would go back for just that alone. My husband had the fish tacos and he raved about them. I had the taco salad... More

Although a tad pricier than other places in town, their chile relleno was worth every cent! Friendly service, very casual spot.

We were exploring the rock shops near Zions and saw others' reviews on Whiptail Grill so we decided to try it. We weren't disappointed!! I had the spaghetti squash enchiladas and my husband had the Whiptail Burrito. Both were splendid!! The avocado vinaigrette salad dressing was really delicious! My husband said he'd even eat those 'nasty weedy salads' if he... More

This is a laid back place in a cleverly converted gas station that serves interesting twists on Tex mex food. Most dining is outside. Heaters were available. The food was excellent. Chicken jalapeño pizza. Burrito. Fish tacos. All were excellent. Highly recommend. Just outside Zion.

What a pleasant dining experience. Water right away, Ryan came with menus was very personable. We started with Apricot Hefeweizen and calamari, very good. We split a stuffed avocado salad and the spaghetti squash with goat cheese enchiladas....excellent! For dessert we shared the Chocolate peanut butter with jalapeno creme brulle, it has a nice kick! Kudos to the chef and... More

We had dinner here during a recent trip to Utah. The food was tasty and fresh and the prices, reasonable. Try the enchiladas; they're exceptional. Wendy provided excellent service and her recommendations were spot on. It was our favorite dinner of the trip.

We went to Whiptail Grill for dinner. We tried spaghetti squash enchilada, fire chicken wrap, sesame encrusted tofu, and kids' bean burrito (with tofu). Except the kids' bean burrito, everything else tasted not bad. Sesame encrusted tofu was extra tangy and soggy. Service was bad. Though the server was nice to give us 50% discount on enchilada entree when he... More

I apologize for your experience at the Whiptail Grill. I do not like to make excuses but we are training some of our kitchen staff that is new this season and it can get hectic in the kitchen sometimes. I am talking with the servers this night to see if it really was the kitchen staff or possibly the server... More

During our 3 month trip in the US, we visited a few Mexican restaurants. This was easily the best. The enchiladas were fantastic. Great location and friendly staff, at reasonable prices. If you go to Zion, then eat here!

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
