Friendly, Eclectic, Fun

We stopped for lunch and were most pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by a delightful young lady, Kim, who turned out to be our waitperson. She took time to explain the vast menu and let us know we could order any combination we desired. We ordered and in a very reasonable time were served... read more

The Scene: While on vacation in Blowing Rock, made a quick jaunt to Boone to try this restaurant out. In a strip mall near the local Walmart, we arrived just in time before the rush came. Small but colorful, not too dissimilar from your standard strip mall Mexican joint from an appearance standpoint. The Experience: One look at the menu... More

We stopped in here for lunch today while on vacation in Boone. What a great place this is! A small place with many menu choices. The boats were the best, great flavors, nice portions. The menu has something for everyone. We will definitely be stopping here again on our next visit.

After placing our name on the list (Which we were the first people on the list) our party of 5 consisted of 3 adults and 2 children were told the wait would be no more than 20 mins. After 45 mins and having SEVERAL parties walk in and be immediately seated we had no choice but to leave. There were... More

My husband and I ate at Coyote Grill today, and we will definately come back to try more. He got the Chicken Jerk Tacos with Pineapple Habanero Salsa. I got the Barbados Boat (which is a casserole style dish containing coconut rice, pineapples, black beans, sweet potatoes, cheese, and Jerk chicken) I had the pico de gallo salsa with that.... More

Friends brought us here for dinner on our first night visiting them in Boone. They menu is varied, while still offering a concise amount of options so as not to overwhelm. My wife had the tilapia sandwich and absolutely loved it. The sandwich was surprisingly large and she was able to make two meals out of it. I had a... More

I absolutely LOVE the Pacifico Burrito. Unfortunately, they quite often run out of salmon days before the next delivery. To make that worse, if you want to order the same burrito with a cheaper (for the restaurant) fish or other items, you are charged the same price as for the salmon. I have complained about these two problems numerous times.... More

excellent food and great staff. We arrived late for dinner only to be greeted with a friendly smile and welcoming hostess. Dinner (burgers, bowl and burrito) were all excellent. We bought two t-shirts as well. Would certainly recommend.

In a word, over rated. The "boats" are cold on the bottom with bland white melted cheese on top. Too much rice. Soup bland. Salsa appetizer order tasty, but too small. 1 of 7 people left satisfied (burrito). Sorry, but really disappointed.

The coconut rice made everything taste good. Most of my family overate because we didn't realize until after we ordered that you can order a smaller size version of the "boat" and "bowl". I had a bowl and it was just right. Most dishes have coconut rice with some sort of meat and vegis. Tasty and flavorful salsas. This place... More
