Had lunch at this little, simple Mexican restaurant and ordered the taco plate. The tacos (chicken and carne asada) we're both good and the rice and beans were tasty. We sat in the back and had an ocean view. Valet parking has a suggested donation of $3.00. Great place for a casual meal.

Great cal-mex food. Best in winter, when you can join the crowd (no reservations here) for local lobster.

Nice spot in some ways - careful parking - there is a red zone that's not to obvious for the un-initiated. Food here is standard fare but for a quick lunch it's fine. Some interesting folk at the bar.

Nice food and friendly service! Nachos are ok and I love their fajitas. I've been there a few times but I definitely have to go back to try some more cocktails and other dishes from the menu!

Living in the Midwest, I am fortunate if I can make it out to Orange County once a year. When I do, getting a meal at the Coyote is the only non-negotiable part of the trip. Yes, it's THAT good! I have never seen any dish that didn't look extraordinarily appetizing, and judging from the ferocity with which most patrons... More

We went to Coyote Grill twice will visiting for a week. The first time we went for breakfast, which was really good. We ordered the chorizo and eggs and a side of guacamole. It was very good. It tasted just like what my grandma would make. Since breakfast was so good we went back for dinner one night. I had... More
