The chicken posole tested like it came straight from a can. It was a chili free broth. We couldn't finish it. It left a bad taste in out mouth. The carnitas quesadilla was slightly better, but it also lacked flavor. It was a very sad experience.

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.

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
