It's not really Tex-Mex--come on, this is central Connecticut after all. The margaritas are okay, but they are definitely strong. Service was wonderful. Chips and salsa are boring. A spinach and feta quesadilla was pretty tasty but needed hot sauce. A mushroom and onion enchillada was mediocre. Pumpkin flan was very good. Haven't been here in more than a decade... More

Was disappointed to find no reservations initially and to arrive at 8pm and to be told 45 mins for a table for 6. The 45 mins turned into near 90 mins. First seated in bar because table was not available. Hostess/waitress very friendly and drinks were awesome. The drink menu also should be updated to include all their options as... More

Been to quite a few Mexican restaurants lately, and unfortunately this one does not rank among my favorites. It took us over half an hour to get seated- and with so many customers there, did expect something out of the ordinary. Our group ordered a variety of choices including the happy trails combo, burrito grande, beef tostada, chicken quesa and... More

Party of 6, 4 adults, 2 children. Told 20 min. wait - It is a long time for children. We waited 1 hour while asking every 20 min's and be told only a few more min's. After being seating and ordering, it took 45 min's for food to be served. Food was ample portions. After eating and the table cleared,... More

The drink menu warns that two margarita's are enough for most adults. I'm an adult, I know I can drink more than two margarita's and not even feel it. Wrong. They do not skimp on the alcohol, and it's worth it to upgrade to the 1800 tequila. Drinks went down smooth, and let's just say I'm glad I had a... More

While the place is not huge, it is well worth going to. They have by far the best margaritas in the area. I recommend the upgrade from the house margarita to the 1800, you will not be disappointed! They come out in Ball jar glasses and are quite potent, there is a reason they limit you to only two. I... More

Revisited Blue Coyote this week after a long hiatus. Food was excellent and portions quite generous. I had the Burrito Grande a combination of chunked beef, chicken and button mushrooms with rice and refried beans. Very tasty with the beef being a bit dry but still quite good. My wife has the chicken tostada which was absolutely huge!!! She totally... More

The good: cool little place. The bad: dining room full so couldn't seat our party of 6. Told us we could sit at tables in bar and wait. We did and ordered drinks. Margarita's were very sour. They brought us chips and salsa to munch on. I asked bartender for some appetizers off menu. He said we can't order food... More

Great little tex mex "hole in the wall" cement bldg restaurant. Cute bar area with all the decor... Not fancy but good food. Limited menu offerings but we always seem to find good food and friendly service... low prices too...About 3.5 on a scale of 5

Visited for lunch had some great margaritas, and got a couple of burritos, the meat seasoning I guess is a bit more southwestern which was not exactly to our taste. So I guess you have to try to see if this is your mexican or if you feel it's a bit off your expectations. The place is small but the... More
