The meal itself was good. But at first they brought me a salad that was all brown and I had to request a new one. Our waitress seemed very socially awkward.....or she could've just been nervous. She couldn't really answer any of our questions in regards to the menu, at one point she was talking to us with food in... More

Went there for dinner I ordered steak medium rare and the other guest ordered chicken breast. I got a well done dry steak and the other guest got rare chicken. The waitress gets the manager who comes to the table and says that we are wrong the chicken is cooked. Walking off mumbling in Spanish the guest confronts him in... More

The food was just "ok" and our server seemed to be struggling. I am not sure if it was a language barrier or maybe he was new to the job but things were not happening as quickly or accurately as we have experienced in the past. He wrote down our drink order but he didn't bring the correct drinks. One... More

Everything about this restaurant was typical Mexican chain restaurant. Bland generic interior, large menu heavy on Tex Mex items, huge portions, big drinks, free chips, reasonable prices. Service was average. Personally, I'd look for something with more character.

We are always glad to get to visit our favorite Mexican restaurant, but on this weekday night visit, it was obvious why they had a Help Wanted sign on the front door. The service was awful!!! Our waitress was very accommodating for the most part, but we had to get up and go to the kitchen TWICE to beg for... More

This restaurant is a "go to" for us - always consistent. The food is excellent with a good selection. When looking at eating at a Mexican restaurant - the questions are: How are the chips and sauces, how are the margaritas, and how is the food. Without question, Santo Coyote is solid in all categories.

I've been to Santo Coyote on a few occasions. It's nearly impossible to find authentic Mexican food anywhere in the Little Rock area, but Santo Coyote does have pretty good Mexican-inspired food. The ceviche is REALLY good and it was large enough for me to eat as my entree, rather than as an appatizer. The guacamole was prepared tableside, which... More

I had a business meeting. I don't care for guacamole dip. I was convinced to try it since they make it fresh at your table. They did not put many tomatoes because I am allergic. The dip was excellent. I was very impressed with the taste and flavor. I had to leave suddenly, but I can imagine the rest of... More

The margaritas are absolutely fabulous! Be sure and order the table side quacamole! Absolutely the freshest and tastiest guacamole around!
