Great Margaritas!

We don't go to Palm Springs often but it seems like we end up at the Blue Coyote Grill for lunch when we do. They make a mean margarita and if you are more than two order by the pitcher. The menu is very extensive. The food is also very good. I like the patio dining if it isn't too... read more

I first went to this restaurant when meeting locals for dinner. I returned when I was on a business trip alone and could walk here. The food is good. The margaritas are good and so is the service. Very good prices for what you get. I like it more than the very well known Mexican restaurant down the street.

Stopped here for lunch when we arrived Palm Springs. Very good choice! Food was excellent and the portions were huge! Took steak fajitas and beef burrito, both very nice. Meat was good, in many places the steak is like a gum, here it was tender. Also the beans and rice were better than we are used to in mexican restaurant.... More

Indeed the margaritas are delicious, and one waiter who has worked there for years is awesome. However, the food is nothing outstanding, The entire place needs a good clean up--dirty, old furnishings, dirty floors and carpets and nothing at all fresh in recent years. Not a repeat.

I am from the East Coast and was looking to get some great Mexican type food on this trip to CA, however my meal here was just OK. I had a Chicken Chimichanga and it really did not have a lot of flavor. My dining companions had the snapper and fajitas and described their dishes as acceptable.

We never come to Palm Springs without making a stop at The Blue Coyote for lunch and their excellent margaritas. We've been hooked for years!

Everything was tasty and fresh. The margaritas are to die for! (Peach is my fave) The menu is perfect. Many options, and awesome choices.

We have been making more or less an annual pilgrimage to The Blue Coyote for the past ten years on our golf vacations. We are out in either Indio or Palm Desert but we invariably make the trek in on the week-end. The menu really hasn't changed much & neither thank goodness has the atmosphere. There are several distinct seating... More

We stopped in with friends for Lunch and ate on the patio, as the misters kept us nice and cool. The Margaritas were awesome! Everyone loved their choices for Lunch and the service was bar none! There is on street parking for your convenience. If back in the area, we would definitely stop in again.
