Coyote Cantina looked like the best place to stop on Hwy 24 without going in to Buena Vista, and we were pleased with our choice. We were headed west/south to Poncha Springs and then west on 50 and were ready for a break and a bite to eat. The building looks a little like something from Diners, Driveins, & Dives,... More

If you like Mexican food and big plates this is a place to stop. They have a good happy hour, beer $2 and appetizers are 50% off. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a burger melt and I had the rueben. Bother were tasty. I would have given it an excellent if the sides were homemade. I ordered the... More

We ate here last night and the staff were wonderful! Super nice folks who enjoy visiting with customers. The decor was great and has a very comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately, we came here for dinner and the food was way below expectations. The server recommended the Queso Chicken so that's what I ordered. It was a plate of bland, flavorless... More

The wait staff was surly and the food barely edible. Eat somewhere else. Anywhere else. This was one of the most unsatisfactory dining experiences ever.

This restaurant is a gem. I like food that has been freshly prepared with care and this is what we received. Simple and delicious food at a fair price. The atmosphere was great as was the service. And who can resist a name like Coyote Cantina while motorcycling from Denver to AZ

BUT, good food and a favorite place to eat every time we go through Buena Vista. Not just Mexican fare.

Heading to Denver, few places in between to stop for lunch. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated and the staff pleasant; the food however was terrible. Prior to ordering I asked the waitress what she recommended, she said the staff typically like the quesadilla, assuming it would have been better, I wish I'd headed her advice.

Nice lunch stop on our way back to Metro Denver from St. Elmo, CO. Good beer selection, reasonable prices. I had the taco/Enchilada combo and it was delicious, including the beans and the rice! Service was pleasant and attentive.

Love the atmosphere of this restaurant, it was a welcomed site because we were hungry and ready for some drinks. The margarita was pretty good, our waitress was friendly right off the bat. The food did take a little while to arrive, however our waitress Kris was wonderful and made the wait seem like a moot point. Once we got... More

The interior restaurant decorations are a lot of fun. The service was attentive. The portions were generous, but the food was just okay.
