We stopped at coyotes for dinner after the San Francisco Marathon today. We ordered two tacos and an order of beans and an order of rice all for under $13. We split all that and had more food then we could eat. Mail comes with a small order of chips and salsa free if you order more than five dollars... More

After hearing friends talk about the food here, I decided to give it a try for dinner. I had a steak taco salad, very small, not much lettuce, the steak was ok, but a piece was mostly gristle. It was made with black beans, which I liked. The steak Burrito was just ok, too much sour cream inside, however I... More

Just ate here tonight with kids (age 5 and 9) and food was really worth it. Authentic horchata and very laid back atmosphere. After a long trip to San Francisco, it was a great welcome back to the Bay Area.

This small restaurant is nothing fancy but I'm there at least once each week - I would recommend the fish burrito (with fish, rice, and black beans), which is made fresh and will be ready for you in four minutes! There are several small tables if you want to eat in, or they will fix your meal to go.

Have picked up take-out from Coyote many times over the past few years. I really like the quality, taste and value of their menu. My daughter really likes their tortilla soup. The staff gets it done...but isn't always very attentive. But for the quality and value of the food...i'll keep on coming in for a quick take-out.

I work in the area and don't come here as much as I used to. The place has good burritos, but they are around $8 and not very large. You could go somewhere else to a restaurant and get the same food for just a bit more.

I ate here once wi a group and I don't think I would go again. We waited so long for a table, and it wasn't even packed. The food was average, and the prices were average, but the service just did it for me. The staff didn't seem to care for out group at all, the waiter hardly ever came... More
