We got the taco salads because we wanted real food. it was tasteless. There wasn't much flavor in the chicken nor the rice or beans. You do get chips and salsa while waiting... salsa wasn't that great. Service was okay tho.

For a quick bite and a laid back atmosphere, Coyote Joe's is a good choice. Friendly service and good food but nothing fancy.

Stopped for a quick late lunch. We had a quesadilla which was served very hot and nicely stuffed. However the cheese looked like American or velveeta. Also had a ground beef burrito which was tasteless. Beer was good though.

Had the wet chicken burrito and couldn't finish the massive beast. So good and tasty but was a lot of food. My wife had the tostada supreme and thought it was good too. Service was great for a holiday weekend. Other restaurants were packed with waiting lines but we were able to walk in and get seated right away. Just... More

This is just off of the main sidewalk and the food is very good, reasonably priced and the drinks are wonderful! The nachos are tasty and big enough for two, the wet burritos are big and again big enough for two. The Margarita on Happy Hour is very generous and mmmm good! Great place!

We were looking for a place to grab a bite and our first choice had a long wait. We walked in here and were seated right away. Food is OK. We had 3 Iced Teas, 2 wet burritos and a dry burrito. Bill with tip was $55.00. To me, that's a lot. Burritos have too many beans (cheap filler) and... More

It was huge....well for us it was. Pickup and return to town organised by our concierge. Seems like it was a locals eatery.

There are better choices for Mexican food on the island. Just ask anyone in the service industry and they will point you out

I went to this place every Tuesday for 6 months whilst I was on the island. Cheap as chips, absolutely wonderful food, all the nachos you can eat. Potato tacos for the vegetarians are a real treat, especially when drowned in Cholula. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Get yourself down there on a Tuesday, get a nice cold PBR,... More
