Whiptail Grill was awesome. Converted gas station with awesome tex-mex. We got the ribs, a mexican pizza, the relleno and more. It was awesome for dinner after a looong day of hiking. Sit back and enjoy the food and canyon views!

Good food and relax with the locals, my wife and I shared a chicken burrito for lunch and it was more than enough. Give them a try you will not regret it.
