We went during restaurant week and the food was great. Portions were good and presentation was more than anticipated.

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

Good food, packed with locals (which says something) and killer house Margaritas. Endless chips and salsa

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.

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.
