Very good!

We joined a party of 8 last night for dinner and after reading the reviews I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. Service was great and the margaritas were delicious. I would go back!

Have been going to this restaurant for a few years and never have been disappointed. Great mexican food, with more of an authentic flavor. Love the choices you have for your fillings, sauces and sides. And their cocktails are delicious also!

My girlfriend and myself like Mexican and really want to like this place because it's close. Unfortunately after trying three time we just have to write it off. The food looks good but is invariably bland. They also have some of the worst servers around. After the first time we thought we might have hit on a bad day. Nope,... More

Food is good but not quite authentic Mexican, we've travelled in the Southwest quite a bit and have had lots of the real deal. The food is better than average just not quite very good. Service is very good and easier to get to than the Southwest!

Food was very blah. Lots of strange items on the menu that are not Mexican or of tex-mex origin. Ordinary hot sauce on the tables. Every Mexican restaurant I have been to who claims to be authentic never had Frank's hot sauce on the table.

Great place, in the heart of the village, for a fine Mexican meal. Service is always great, food is always very good and it's a fun place to eat. Chimi's and Burrito's are good and so are the Fish Tacos.

Coyote Café fabulous fun as soon as you sit down the waitress brings you yummy chips and salsa. The food is so good. On certain nights there's game nights & karaoke, everyone always seems to be having a good time. I love this gem of a place in Hamburg.

First time visit for my wife and I. Fun atmosphere took me back to my days in San Diego. Menu was not overloaded with choices and the food was wonderful. Bar service was excellent as well with some prices being just above market. Went a second time a couple days later with my wife and daughter.
