Relaxed Atmosphere and Big Portions

This place is very Palm Springs - very chilled and run in laid back style but not without offering good service. The decor is a bit dated but don't be put off, the food is lovely and the portions are huge. You also get tortilla chips and dip coming all the time. The nachos are decent with all... read more

We had breakfast just as the restaurant was opening. Servers were gracious and accommodating. Food was great. They have wonderful, fresh guacamole and salsa. They have a simple and delicious breakfast menu. We had the breakfast burritos and different items off the menu (quesadillas, etc.). The food was fresh and delicious. They have a really good looking lunch and dinner... More

Blue Coyote Grill is located on Palm Canyon Drive in the "downtown" section of Palm Springs, California. This is great because you can explore the many shops and galleries before/after dining. This restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining in a quaint setting. The staff is friendly, the food is abundant and consistently delicious. Many of the "locals" dine there... More

I have a very nostalgic husband who enjoys visiting certain spots when we vacation more than once in a city. The Blue Coyote is a spot we always visit when in Palm Springs or passing through on the 10. I have never been too impressed with the restaurant but we go back because of all the memories. Don't get me... More

Enjoyable atmosphere that feels more like someone's backyard than a restaurant. The service was excellent; the manager checked on us several times. We would definitely return.

The manager personally came over & introduced himself & checked on us during our meal to be sure all was good.

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
