“Our family favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

For many years, the Dos Coyotes locations in Sacramento have been our go-to answer for "hey we're hungry". A visit here always pleases everyone in the family. All of the food is prepared locally at each location - including the excellent array of salsa choices.

The food is fresh, flavorful, and healthy. I like the adobe salad - topped with either steak or chicken. The paella burrito is also excellent. Right now it's summer so they are offering an ear of grilled corn with a butter lime sauce. The Navajo Nachos are fantastic.

This is not a mexican restaurant, and it's not exactly tex-mex either. But the menu is wide and interesting. There are always several specials each day.

Their chips are superb - and the many salsa choices greatly enhance their enjoyment.

A couple of years ago, they installed a Coke dispensing machine which can deliver about 100 different variations on all of the Coke products. If you are looking for the ultimate soda experience - this is is. They also offer wine, beer, and a variety of different specialty teas and fruit juices.

“Super Adobe salad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Visited with friends. Service is outstanding and food great as well. The portions are ridiculous. You could feed four people from the Adobe salad. And everything was fresh. They even had fresh Mango Iced Tea. Noisy restaurant is the only negative, but they sure move people in and out with a great meal.

“Excellent food and style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We've been going to Dos Coyotes for many years and have always loved the food there,but this particular location deserves extra praise.
Food: creative,fun,healthy Californian-Mexican cuisine. Everything is very delicious,especially the salmon burrito, fish tacos, and Coyotes’ Yin Yang Salad (with chicken). It's torture to choose just one thing from the menu, since everything looks and tastes great.
The portions are big enough for two to share, and the price is more than reasonable. I don't understand how they can keep their quality so high the size of portions so large with such low prices (my daughter's theory is "magic"). There is a self-serve bar with fresh,very tasty salsas and sauces. All of them are very good, and are perfect compliments to the best tortilla chips I've ever eaten.
You order at the counter, and then they bring it to your table. They let you get the condiments yourself (as much as you want). The service that they do have, though, runs at maximum efficiency; it's fast, friendly, and accommodating.
The place is fun and stylish, though casual; don't expect white tablecloths and hundred-dollar wine (though beer and wine ARE on the menu and DO taste very good).

“Good food and great salsa bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Dos is always good and food is always good and comes out quickly. The salads are big and the chicken ceased is my favorite. I also like the seasonal menu. The new soda machine is really cool too. I only wish they gave you chips with every order so you can eat more of the tasty salsa selection.

“Great prices and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We love coming here for a quick and inexpensive bit to eat on our way home from a long day at work and commuting through the terrible freeway traffic of the Sacramento area.
