Divey Delucious Mexican

Cheap eats with great service. Slight ocean view. Quick meal. Nothing fancy, but tasty and authentic. Happy Hour specials on good and wine were a BONUS.

We eat here every time we visit and it never disappoints. Go on a weekday. It is much easier to get the table you like. After dinner, walk out the front, turn to your left and take the street down to the beach. It is a hidden gem and you can walk off some of that great food!

for sunday brunch, this place always has a line of people waiting to get in - a pretty good sign of how popular it is. we have dropped in more than once during happy hour in the bar. it can be crowded! i've always had great tacos and conversations here.

Love the shrimp tacos and my husband enjoyed his fish tacos. Place is not much to look at but the staff was friendly and the food was great.

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
