The Blue Coyote Bar & Grill is one of many great outdoor (and other) Mexican restaurants in Palm Springs. Many are unique, and each has its own personality. For outdoor dining and a "local feel," none are more interesting than the Blue Coyote. The menu is expansive, and something can be found for all. Food portions tend to be generous. Service is friendly, and everyone is (and feels) welcome - from tourists to conventioneers to locals to any- and everyone else. To assure a spot and a preferred table (we prefer to be near the sidewalk, so we can "people watch," as others stroll by; others prefer a quiet corner). Misters in the summer; heaters in the evening... and indoor dining on the rare occasion that it may be necessary. Enjoy!

Blue Coyote Bar & Grill is one of the best places to go in this area for fabulous and fun Mexican food, served in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. In a community of seemingly endless great Mexican restaurants, the Blue Coyote Bar & Grill is a standout, in part because of its quaint and charming outdoor seating area (and convenient parking in the back, with the feel of a special and private entrance to the restaurant). We love it there!

We have been going to Blue Coyote for 12 years, and until recently, it was our first choice for Mexican food. Now, they have had a lot of staff turnover and there chicken dishes all seem to have the same marinade, no matter what dish you order. The service is fine, but nothing special.
The plus is they do take reservations, and we have a tendency to go with large parties...

Excellent, authentic Mexican food, well served. The place is a bit noisy inside, but less so on the patio or in the room just above the patio.

Blue Coyote is reliable for service, food and pleasant, outdoor ambiance. We had jalapenos in serape (always tasty!) and the special house chicken. Eating under the olive trees with water gurgling nearby makes for a peaceful, welcome mini-retreat in the middle of our day.

What a lovely place to be in Palm Springs! Great food, pleasant, relaxed, and convivial atmosphere, and spectacularly splendid service and attention by everyone on the staff. The Coyote Bar and Grill seems to be a favorite for locals and tourists alike, and it is A+++ in my book! STRONGLY recommended, and we intend to return again and again.
