LOVE this place

This is a great Mexican restaurant in the southbay. Service is always great, super tasty cocktails, and yummy food! I am obsessed with their queso starter. Where I grew up, creamy cheesy queso was standard at all Mexican restaurants, not that weird chorizo stuff that so many SoCal restaurants... read more

The decor and wait staff were great. The chips were nice and hot but the salsa is just a thin sauce, but it has a nice flavor. I ordered chili verde in a burrito and it was just okay. The sauce was not authentic and tasted like something I could get in a can at Ralph's. My friend ordered enchiladas,... More

Charming place in south Redondo Beach, which has some typical gourmet Mexican dishes, along with one that is not found in many other places: sweet corn ravioli in an anejo sauce. This is a 'must-try', and I highly recommend it.

Best Margaritas and Mexican food in Redondo -actually the beach cities. Atmosphere is wonderful but a bit noisy.

This is Mexican food with a real twist. My favorite is the Mexican lasagna. It's lasagna noodles with Mexican flavors. The quesedillas have Brie. Such clever deviations from the traditional. It's hard to choose.

Cozy place with solid food that checks all the right boxes for comfort, casual and cost. No culinary surprises, but who cares. It works. Only consideration is it's not a large place so may want to plan ahead with bigger group. That said, never had a problem getting seated for two on a weekend.

I understand that the happy hour is good but there was no room at the bar to partake. HH is at bar only and its a super small area. Food wasn't bad. Would do Taco Tuesday again but not certain on other dinner items

So this place has some out of this world food, but only, and I repeat ONLY if you order something out of the ordinary. Yes, you can go and order your typical burrito, taco or enchilada and it will be acceptable, but may seem overpriced for what you get. Where this place shines is the unique dishes like the sweet...

I love Coyote Cantina. The food is always consistent and super good. It is also a great place for families, they are great to kids and make it enjoyable for all. I have never tried something I did not like here and just love that it has a friendly neighborhood feel!

Loved the chips and salsa. Enchiladas and tacos are great. Carnitas are fabulous. Everything on the menu looks great!
