Extremely helpful and friendly wait staff. Ask them for tips on how to enjoy your visit to Zion, (and ask for Danny if he’s available). Also great ambiance, plenty of things to buy, and very good pineapple ribs and calamari.

Casual place, hip wait staff, great view of the mountains. Never ate better in a converted gas station. Mexican style food with SW kick, good beers. Pleasant experience. Will be back.

its extremely casual- and small- I would just head there early to be assured you get a table if you are in a rush. most seating seemed to be outside.
