OMG the margarita was awesome and strong! I could only down one but I didn't need any more than that! That was the only good thing about this place.

We were so starved after a strenuous hike that we stayed for dinner even though there was nothing on the menu for vegetarians. NOTHING, NIL, ZERO, ZILCH!!!! No cheese enchiladas, no chile rellenos, no tostadas. Everything either had chicken, fish, seafood, beef or pork in it. The waitress suggested we go to their sister restaurant for pasta, no! She even said that this happens all of the time. We had mediocre pasta the last few nights. We wanted Mexican and we have never been to a Mexican restaurant that didn't have a number of vegetarian options. They did finally say they could make us cheese enchiladas and tostadas without the meat but it wasn't on the menu. Unfortunately those entrees weren't very good either.

I have to say that this place serves the worst "guacamole" I have ever had. I think they just cut an avocado in half and scooped out the good stuff and put it in a dish and brought it to our table. No salt, no lime, no tomatoes, no garlic and no jalapeno! Unbelievable.

Initally the service wasn't very good. We waited at the entrance with another party and we were all just ignored as three or four servers clearly pretended not to see us. Oh, and we did get the "do you have reservations" line too. At long last we were seated and our drink order was taken and delivered. Well my margarita was but hubby didn't water until well into the meal. We waited and waited for someone to come take our order Finally, a delightful waitress took pity on us and was quite attentive to our needs.

if you are from a more urban area than this Mexican food is not going to cut it. they have good drinks but their food leaves a lot to be desired. granted in the area there are not a lot if options for food. they don't have anything on the menu that is vegetarian.

The bar has the best tequila selection in Plumas County. Good atmosphere - just remember to have a DD - the police here are very active.

Our Portola friends took us to Coyote in Graeagle. We knew it was Mexican cuisine, but that's all. What a surprise. This is no ordinary Mexican cuisine. The food is fantastic. My fresh salmon with a red bell pepper/herb sauce was outstanding. The beans were the best I've had in California (better than mine!). Rich, tender, correct texture, and the right seasoning touch made these perfect.

Coyote is busy, lots of locals, can get noisy, but go for the food. Highly recommended.
