My daughter recently moved to Fairfax, so we paid her a visit and took her to lunch at Coyote Grill (we live an hour south of her with the "same old, same old" restaurants and chains). She had not been yet, and we all wanted to try something new. From our entrance into the restaurant choosing our booth, to the very friendly and attentive waitress, and lastly to the manager being available to greet us and make sure we had a good experience, our lunch was very good. We started with the chorizo queso, and I asked the waitress for salsa, also. The salsa is more picante in style (no chunky tomatoes, just a smooth liquid but tasty all the same), and the queso was hot and creamy (it might have been a bit too orange in color though--somewhat artificial appearing, but it was still yummy). The chorizo was broken up into crumbles which I was glad about since I was expecting large chunks. The waitress brought us out more chips ahead of when we needed them and our drinks were refilled often. I ordered the Cilantro Pesto Chicken and Baby Spinach salad. It was a large lunch salad (dinner size pretty much) and very, very good. It has pecans, cranberries, lots of spinach leaves, a good deal of boneless chicken (cut into chunks, not strips), goat cheese, tomatoes, and even sweet potatoes. I thoroughly enjoyed it. My daughter ordered the chicken chimichanga and my husband ordered the beef chimichanga. They are not fried, and they were more than happy with the healthier version. Both said they were very good and not too spicy.
I would definitely revisit this restaurant, the menu is extensive, and I would like to try the tapas. My daughter, being ten minutes away, will be going back, also.
