“Great food and margaritas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

My dinner was very good but what I really liked was the margaritas! I highly recommend having one but with a big meal, as they're somewhat strong.

“Always fun and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

We like Blue Coyote Grill for the food and the atmosphere. It is right on the street which makes it fun to watch people in Palm Springs coming to town. The service and the food is always better than expected. With a large group they offer semi private rooms for your dinner which is appreciated.

“Great Food”

Had the Thursday special. Rib Eye steak with all the trimmings and the "WILD COYOTE MARGARITA" is awesome.

“Just O.K”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We used to love Blue Coyote Grill, but food has gone downhill in a few short months. We usually went here with family and enjoyed the food, but things have changed. The person who seats you has a personality problem. She seems to hate her job and seats everyone with a smirk. Like why are you eating here. That's the first thing. You sit down, and have to wait for several minutes for a waitperson even if no one is there. When they finally wait on you it's a hit a miss time. My son does not like spicy food and always asks is this spicy. The answer is usually not at all. Then his food comes out and he can't eat it. The rest of the family has the same problem. This used to be a great spot but no more! There are plenty of good resturants in Palm Springs, avoid this one.

“Best overall restaurant........period”

I have been going to Palm Springs for about 20 years and every time I have been there I have gone to this restaurant. Always outstanding. Best Wild Margarita on the face of the earth.
