“Pure (?) fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Coyote Blue has the happiest customers. I wonder if it might be the libations? Never ever have I tasted a better margarita! The warm chips and salsa brought immediately to your table start the evening off. My favorite dish is the Shrimp Quesadilla, always the same great taste. Consistency is what Coyote Blue is all about. Never, ever change your recipes. Interesting specials are offered too. This is a favorite Friday night spot.

“Margaritas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Best margaritas and mixers! This place is the drink place, the food is ok! Its a tex- mex place with a a limited menu and limited seating. The food can be better, but they have the best hot sauces. So combine masking tastes of food, and good drinks, it helps justify this 4 rating

“Great Tex Mex!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Just as the name says. Great Tex Mex food, not Mexican. There is a difference. Can be very crowded at times but most great places are. Staff is always very nice! Shrimp burrito is usually a special but they will make it for you anytime and it is delicious!! If you like a little heat ask for the hot sauce wheel. 8 or 10 different sauces, all with very unique flavors. They are known for their margaritas as well. the house margarita is very tasty and very potent!! Enjoy!

“Great margaritas and burritos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Hadn't been here in a while but worth the drive. We used to live nearby and ate here more regularly.The restaurant is small so don't arrive at prime time and expect to be seated right away. In nice weather there is some outdoor seating. You may have to wait but this gives you time to enjoy a margarita and the complimentary chips and salsa. The food is tex mex and does not disappoint. We have never had a bad meal here. There are specials that give you something new to try.
