Love to take out-of-town guests here!

Coyote Kitchen is consistently fresh, good food. I love to take out-of-town guests here. When I say we're going for tacos, they expect run of the mill ground beef and cheese. They are blown away by the taste and variety - fish, jerk chicken, vegetarian, etc. Don't forget the sweet potato fries... read more

Whenever I get to choose the restaurant, Coyote Kitchen is my first pick. I've never had something I didn't love here. I recommend the Barbados Boat or any of the tacos.

I brought my 10 month old service dog in training and they were more than hospitable to us, finding a table where we could sit comfortably and he would be out of the way. One of the best parts was that the waitress brought my dog a bowl of water, which made my day. The food was amazing. Overall, one... More

I had high hopes for my meal at this restaurant but was disappointed. I was glad they offered a Yucatan "canoe" (smaller portion than a "boat") which has sauted shrimp, coconut rice, butter beans, sausage & caramelized onions all dumped in a casserole dish. Should be flavorful, right? It was so bland. If you order a soda it comes in... More

This spot is a great casual dining option--totally original menu they call Caribbean southwest soul food. The specialty appears to be their "bowls", which are individually sized casseroles anchored with cornbread or rice. The portions are hearty without being obnoxious; you have protein choices like tofu, chorizo, jerk chicken, shrimp, beans, tilapia..... Everything is fresh and delicious, especially their house...

Coyote Kitchen and it's employees do a great job of catering to each individual's dietary needs. If you're vegan, they can work with you. If you're celiac, they can work with you. Whatever your needs they are more than eager to make your meal a success.

The menu in this little, cozy place, if filled with many healthy and GF options. Would not of thought so from first impressions. The food was great tasting and served hot. Myself and two companions all enjoyed our meals! The staff was friendly and very attentive. The sweet potato fries were great! The cream cheese dessert was a little dry,... More

This is a Caribbean southwest soul food place. my husband and I weren't sure what to expect but so glad we tried it. The waiter recommended their specialty which is "bowls". Then said that if we wanted to make any changes feel welcomed. We both customized our choices and were so happy. The food was delicious. They were also real... More

Very pleased with the meal, I had the Kobe tacos and my son had the jerk chicken tacos. We split and both were outstanding! Service is friendly and attentive. Is is a small joint so call ahead 15 minutes so you can be seated promptly. Black cherry Sangria is the bomb! Mango salsa on the Kobe is a must! $24... More
