Great Ambiance. Hit & Miss on the Food

We stopped by the Coyote Cantina on our way through Buena Vista. The final decision came down to "they have a lot of cars in the lot". They are very conveniently located off of 285. Upon entering the place looks small and quaint. We were greeted promptly and were lead around to the back... read more

We've stopped here many times and always loved it. Tonight there were only 4 other tables, it took forever to get drinks or our order taken. I never got a spoon for my coffee, the margarita was awful. They've changed the menu, so we couldn't get shrimp enchiladas which we've always loved before. The food we did finally get was... More

The food seems fairly consistent here, and they have a nice selection of Colorado microbrews (by the bottle) which is a big plus over your average Mexican restaurant that offers Dos Equis or Budweiser... Service was great for our first visit or two, but has been somewhat shoddy the last couple of times - including being seated for 10 minutes... More

Good tourist stop for that western experience. Food OK, slightly better than routine "homoginized" Mexican. Considering location, a good place to stop on a journey from Denver to Durango!

My family and I went skiing this weekend and a few years ago it was our tradition to stop by here after skiing for some warm drinks and food. Well, we decided to try it again. Boy were we happy we did. We started off with some fresh warm tortilla chips. I had a hot tea, my husband and his... More

While the Coyote Cantina won't win many culinary awards for variety or gourmet quality, the prices are fair, the service excellent and the meals above average for roadside Mexican and Americana dishes. The atmosphere is classic Colorado and the location makes it perfect if you're just passing through on your way to other adventures. There is good visible parking for... More

We have found Coyote Cantina to have tasty meals. If you like good food, it is worth a stop. Not a five star restaurant and it is not intended to be. It has a good variety on their menu and is a nice local favorite. A variety on the menu. The fajitas are good. Generous portions.
