I've wanted to eat here for such a long time. But the hubby is not a fan of Mexican. Well the stars aligned and our first choice for dinner was closed this particular night and I quickly jumped at the chance to try Coyote Cafe. The positives were great service and the food arrived super fast. But I'm sorry to... More

This is our go to Mexican place in buffalo. And it's right here in Hamburg. Chicken enchiladas a la cart is my standard order. Full meals are good with the two sides - but I know what I like.

If you like Mexican food, you will like this establishment. You do get your money's worth out of your meal. The staff was friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our meals.

My wife and I decided to stop in for dinner before a movie and elected here since we hadn't been here in years. First, the table was gross. It was so sticky, we wiped it off with a napkin and the napkin was then black. I ordered the corn chowder for an app, and it was barely ok. It was... More

We visit Coyote every few months for dinner with friends. Dining room is in the front, full bar with additional seating area in the back. Lots of local brews and specialty margaritas available. Server was prompt and friendly, wait for drinks and food was very reasonable, even though they were pretty busy mid-week. Server checked back appropriately and brought drink... More

Have been going to this restaurant for a few years and never have been disappointed. Great mexican food, with more of an authentic flavor. Love the choices you have for your fillings, sauces and sides. And their cocktails are delicious also!

We joined a party of 8 last night for dinner and after reading the reviews I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. Service was great and the margaritas were delicious. I would go back!
