Best Tex Mex we have found in Connecticut

We have heard about Cayote Blue Café for years but have never been there until today. The restaurant was busy but we were seated right away. The Margaritas are as good as they say they are. There was a mix up with our order and we had an extended wait-the waitress communicate well, explained the... read more

Seriously, the table held 6 people, it was a booth on both sides. What is the difference if the entire party is there or not? We all planned to arrive on time and one person was in the bathroom!! The hostess seated another party before us, 2 people. We would have had drinks and an appetizer, 4 of the 6... More

Great little place for margaritas !!! The place is nicely decorated colorfully and quaint. Service wasn't great it seemed there were way too many waitstaff ($$) and we were ignored for several minutes. Once we were recognized things went smoother although we had to flag down our server several times to get things such as silverware the check change the... More

I went to Coyote Blue on a whim. The wait is long but worth it. In the bar area you can sit at a table and have a margarita and chips and salsa, but you can not order dinner. I found this a bit strange. I guess if it works don't change it. The menu states that two margaritas are... More

Went for lunch today as we have been to Coyote Blue in the past. Was not impressed with the service, the waitress walked by our table numerous times while our drink glasses were empty. Food was not impressive, very little flavor this time. Not planning on returning in the near future.

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
