Casual and fun

Decent food, waitress was friendly, and it was great that they had football on. Televisions were located so everyone could see. Would definitely go back.

Excellent and authentic. Chili relenos, shrimp and avocado salad was really good as well as their melon margarita . I was definitely satisfied.

We stopped in here on New Year's Eve (around 4 pm) for a bite to eat since we were staying down the street. The restaurant was not that big, but only had one waiter working. The poor guy was clearly swamped, but was very sweet and alway smiling. However, the food was so-so. I had a quesadilla and it tasted... More

Bloody Marys are average .Micheladas are great! ( Iactually didn't have any food). But they do have 6 Tvs and will tune to your game for Sunday NFl football !

I think they were trying to draw people in with the music (at 10am) since there is a popular breakfast spot across from it.

I wanted Mexican food and my husband did not so Coyote Joe's served our purpose. The chips and salsa were very good. I had a burrito and my husband a burger and we both enjoyed our meals. Service was good! Lots of locals so we new we were at a good place!

Dine on the patio because it's one of the best places to people watch and to drink their cocktail, the John Daly (black tea vodka, & lemonade).
