Food was good. Server left a lot to be desired. Received an email with a coupon for $10 from Coyote Cantina thanking us for being loyal customers. Reservation was at 6:00pm which happened to be during their happy hour. We ordered $60 worth of non-happy hour food and silver lightening margaritas and 1 happy hour beer for $5. The coupon did say not valid for happy hour but we didn’t just order happy hour food. Waitress would not let us use the coupon saying it was happy hour. So we said to split the bill so that the beer was charged by itself. She gave us attitude about it. Nasty look and abruptly turned and walked away saying if that how we wanted it. We asked for more chips. Instead of leaving the half filled chips on the table she snatched the basket and took off. Leaving us with a tiny bit of salsa. Came back with just chips. She was very short and it seemed like she didn’t want to be there and didn’t want to help us. She questioned everything we asked for. Service has always been great at Coyote’s and this visit left a very bad taste in my mouth.

Three wait staff for 6:00 PM dinner hour, with a fairly crowded restaurant. Our waiter delivered menus and did not return for 12 minutes. Ordered margaritas, the glasses were filled to the top with ice with barely any alcohol for full price.; ( not the happy hour menu). Food was so so. Waiter disappeared and never returned to fill water glasses or ask how we were doing, if we needed anything. Asked a nearby waiter for our check.
Not worth it for the money paid.

An awesome Tex-Mex restaurant! The sweet Corn Raviolis are creamy and very tasty, and satisfying. The BBQ chicken salad is wonderfully flavored tossed with Ranch Dressing. You cannot go wrong ordering one of these dishes!

We had a delicious dinner at Coyote Cantina. This is the first time we’ve been here in some time and it didn’t disappoint. I started with their margarita on the rocks which was excellent. I had a combination meal with the cheese enchilada and a hard chicken taco. It was delicious. It’s a big plate and I couldn’t eat all of it but gave it a good try. Everyone enjoyed the food and drinks. We’ll definitely be back!

I can’t say enough about this restaurant! We had a party of 16 which grew from the initial reservation of 12. They were very accommodating and so helpful in getting everyone to sit together. Jill, our server, and the rest of the wait staff were outstanding. The food and drinks were delicious. Everything went flawlessly for our first time. Can’t wait to dine there again!

Although they are currently going through some changes to the indoor area, sitting on the back patio is a nice change. The chicken burrito (wet) was delicious and big ( big enough to take some home). The house margarita's were perfect. For those looking to eat healthy, the ahi tuna salad is a favorite with plenty of tuna.

The good thing about this place it was hidden, but over all the food I was not satisfied with. The serve was nice. I guess you can say I expected good food. I am Latin and to me that wasnt Latin food. Very pricey for food that wasn't all that good too. I will not be coming here again.

My first indoor restaurant since I've been vaccinated. Was there with a couple of writer friends.

It was safe, room for social distancing, and fantastic.

The food was great, due to a mixup with my order (not the servers fault) I tried something I had wanted to try but never quite got around to.

There are traditional-style things on the menu as well as some very interesting fusion entrees, which makes it very refreshing.

They moved the delightful little coyote sculptures from when I was there pre-COVID, although it does give a slightly more modern vibe now.

We have been going to Coyote Cantina for over 20 yrs due to the great food, great margaritas and excellent service. We continued supporting them through 2020 and Covid as we loved this place. However, they may have lost most of their excellent servers and now hired untrained teens.
The service was terrible! We ordered drinks and had to go get them ourselves as our food arrived prior to them. The waitress was very unfriendly and not helpful, needs training and perhaps a different line of work.
We sat outside in their patio, which had some updates but, the tables were so shabby (not chic) and we sat next to an electrical panel. No ambience, outside or inside ,after redecorating.
We were super disappointed!
Will not return for some time
