Great drinks and food!

Service was great! Enjoyed the margarita's and the chips and guacamole. The main course was good but not exceptional. The plate was hot but food was only lukewarm.

I'm partial to the smoked chicken enchiladas but have enjoyed everything. We have always had great friendly service. Very good Margheritas

This is a very pleasant Mexican restaurant. The food is good, the wait staff is friendly, and the outdoor patio is lovely. They make some sort of a house margarita (in 10 gallon batches is what we were told) that is the strongest margarita I have ever had! It was delicious, but must contain a TON of alcohol. I am...

Were looking for a place to get a late lunch and hopefully a marg to drink and just happened to see tis place. The outdoor seating is what sold us. The margaritas were the best we've had in a while. Food was good too.

The margaritas at the Blue Coyote are among the best I have had anywhere. They were a great start to a tasty meal. Homemade tortilla chips and salsa, along with guacamole appeared next on our table. Next came the tortilla soup which was thick and delicious. This was followed by shrimp tacos which were fresh and tasty. For my taste,... More

We only snacked here, but did manage to have a couple different types of margaritas, which we enjoyed. The outdoor area is really nice, with pretty evening lighting.

Stopped for lunch on Monday. The patio was as always very inviting and comfortable. We have been coming here for over 20 years and Blue Coyote has always been on the top of our list. The pollo cilantro and pollo niranga are simply the best. Both have a very nice level of spice and were served comfortably hot. A great... More

It was a slow Tuesday night in January and the inside seating area was maybe half full (it was raining so no one was outside). We were early so it was no trouble being seated right away and we had a waiter at our table within 25 seconds of sitting down bringing water; fresh, hot chips; and salsa. So far,... More
