Loved the shrimp tacos and my friends enjoyed their burritos. Lots of great dishes including vegetarian. Portions are generous and you can't beat the taco Tuesday specials, including $4 margaritas. This place is a locals hangout, so you know the food is good. Pretty small and cute atmosphere...nothing fancy, but nice. Parking can be tricky since it's in Laguna, but... More

Been looking for a decent place with fish tacos, by beach. Last day of vacation found it, and then some! Perfect atmosphere, clean and bright. Foggy day with fire going, cozy. Food was fab. Tamales made on site, great sauce. Fresh fish was good, deconstructed fish tacos. Service attentive,accommodating, helpful. Large servings, great value. A standard for others to measure... More

In my past business trips to Laguna Beach, my hotels had always referred me to the usual subjects ( penguin cafe, etc).... All fine places but I wanted something a bit different. As I was checking out, my valet( now a friend after fetching my car at weird hours) recommended Coyote Grill on the south end of Laguna Beach. From... More

Our nephew took us here for a fantastic dinner. This is one of his favourite places . Prices were great and so was the service. Not fancy and you might not be impressed from the outside but it is well worth the visit.

Revisited CG after a 5 year separation since moving to the East coast. It felt like coming home to a comfy breakfast. The patio has been enclosed so that even on cool winter mornings it is very comfortable. The philly scramble and the carne asada are terrific as are the black beans. No need to choose. Between potatoes or beans... More

We ate breakfast here two years ago and are back in the neighborhood so had breakfast again today. They serve black beans and potatoes with each breakfast dish, along with flour or corn tortillas. Sitting on the porch affords you a view of the ocean.

Ordered Carne Asada. I thought this would be something like chili-con-carne, but was actually half a cow. A cooked (not grilled) piece of meat it had to be folded in two to fit on the plate. Not tender, but tasty, good with the salsasauce. Fried potatoes (could have chosen beans or both), two eggs, tortillas. Good, very popular, wonderfuly happyl... More

The "Coyote" is awesome! A great Happy Hour (3:30-6:30), excellent food, superb service, the best "Margies" around, beautiful sunsets, and not at all pretentious...a truly fun, satisfying, and memorable experience!
