We enjoy the food at the Whiptail. The dining is extremely casual, but the dishes are unique and tasty.

I had a butternut squash enchilada - a first for me. It was excellent - fresh tasting and yummy. Partner had a burrito that was average.

We were seated promptly and our orders came out in an efficient way. We had squash veggie enchiladas and chicken & carnitas tacos. Both were excellent but favorite were the unusual but delicious enchiladas. Have eaten here before and I must say still delicious and consistent. Nice beer list to go with the Mexican flavors.

Our hotel recommended Whiptail. Enjoyed casual meal. Great views of mountains. Friendly service, we had chicken tacos and entree salad with guacamole and sliced chicken. Both were excellent. Reasonably priced. Would go back.

Huge portions, so that's definitely a plus, especially in a more tourist geared town. We've all had Mexican food before, so what's there to say? This place is like "homecooked" Mexican/Southwestern style of food. The flavors are fantastic, and the plates aren't overladen with beans and cheese, so you can actually appreciate what you're eating. The food here isn't super... More

This is one of Springdale's most reliable options for a creative yet relaxed, pretense-free semi alfresco lunch or dinner (there is an overhead canopy and numerous propane heaters are available for chilly evenings). Service is responsive, portions are large and there are plenty of options for omnivores and vegans alike.

We had dinner here the first night we arrived in Springdale, and it was fantastic! I had the spaghetti squash enchiladas and my husband had the fish tacos. We sat outside and we loved it ... the food, the ambiance - a very nice introduction to the town. Because the food was so good, we went back a couple of... More

We had a great dinner at the Whiptail Grill after spending a day in the park. Seating is outdoors but they have propane heaters which keep you toasty warm on chilly nights. We had the chipotle chicken enchiladas and the spaghetti squash enchiladas. The portions were good and the food was absolutely delicious. They also serve beer and winter. The... More

My husband declared this the best burrito ever. I was glad to find a good quality salad at a decent price. It was busy when we visited on an early Saturday evening but less crowded the following day.

Food was cooked beyond well done...3 different meals and all were way overcooked and overpriced. No atmosphere, only one person to cook, serve and cashier. Save your money-GO somewhere else.
