One of my go to spots for a quick fix. Service has always been great. Food is decent and fairly priced. The specials are usually a really good deal. I like sitting outside the restaurant in the mall cause you have lots more room.

We were recently in Sacramento for a wedding. In our down time we went over to the mall. When asking where to eat, EVERYONE, we asked for a suggestion said - Dos Coyotes! We were not disappointed! Holy cow. It was good. ALL fresh food. After eating there, we asked people around the area what they thought of the place.... More

I would compare this restaurant to Chipotles. Average prices. Pretty good food. Food gets made fairly quickly. Moderate portions. Bottles of beer available, not sure about wine and margaritas. It is located inside next to the cinema entrance

We are long time DOS fans! The consistency from location to location is solid. The service is good & their grilled meats & seafood is off the charts! Their mahi mahi is brilliant & our chicken eating friends say the same about the grilled chicken. Great Picks: the howling tostada salad with plantains. You can add any meat to this... More

I eat at Dos Coyotes at least once a month. I can't get enough! Their salads are tasty & huge! I get tired of chewing before I push the plate away. Their southwest border burrito is my go to meal as I am always in need of protein from lifting weights. Their salsa bar is awesome & changes regularly. I... More

For five bucks you get a very good margie. I like to have it with the fish tacos. I think the burritos are a good choice also. For a chain they are consistent with quality.

The staff are always friendly and helpful. The food is served promptly and it’s always delicious. Even though this is in a food court environment, the atmosphere is pleasant.

Came here just because of the reviews looking for good Mexican food and was not impressed. The food was decent, but nothing special. The location is inside a food court at a movie theater and was hard to find as there was no sign. Had a chicken Buritto and it was good, but not great.

Bright and whimsy Southwestern decor, tight seating, loud atmosphere, fresh food served quickly. You can sit along the bar while you eat if you choose and watch the cooks grill up steak and chicken. Everything smells heavenly. Whenever I come here, I decide usually between three different plates: steak enchilada plate with ranchero style rice and beans, garlic and spinach... More
