I ordered the two cheese enchiladas with sweet onions with chili con carne instead of the enchilada sauce. I got the enchiladas covered in con queso so it was returned. When the order came back corrected, the portions looked like it was intended for a child's plate. The chili con carne was dabbed onto the middle of the enchiladas and... More

Four of us tackled the El Coyote at Coyote Blue while visiting Lake Charles. It was almost more than we could handle! Everything was fresh and tasty. A nice selection of meats and fish all serviced in a large dish in the center of the table.

We have been dining at Coyote Blues since it opened several years ago in Lake Charles. It is definitely our favorite Mexican restaurant. The chips and dips are great. The steak fajitas are our favorite! If visiting Lake Charles and craving Mexican food, Coyote Blues is the place to go.

We stopped here after church today for lunch and we really enjoyed the food. The service was great also. I had the smoked duck quesadillas which is one of my favorite items on the menu. My son had the fajitas.

I came in at 630 pm on Friday night after a hard day of travel and work. I sat at the bar because I was by myself. I love Coyote Blues and have eaten at the ones in Lafayette and Baton Rouge often. I was worried when I arrived the lights were still on high inside the restaurant and the... More

I love the menu at Coyote. I think I've ordered everything they offer over the past few years and haven't had a bad meal yet. My favorite side item is the corn grits, although sometimes they are "amazing" and other times just "good." When my mom visits, she insists that we dine here several times per week. I will say...
