Given a partial menu as they were changing pricing while we were there. They could overhear us questioning each other as to where the apps, soups, etc .....why? Because they literally were upping their prices while we were there. I proceed to go online to check the app menu since we didn't have one. My friend then asked if they... More

We are sorry for the inconvenience, the day you came in we were updating our menu. We were not just raising prices we were updating food items, we run specials every weekend for three months then we take the dishes that people really like and add them to the menu and delete others. We do this to keep the menu... More

It wasn't a typical Tuesday and the place was packed to the gills. I order take out regularly (the same item: chicken nachos, nothing fancy). On this particular day, when I placed the order they told me the standard 20 mins. pick time. When I arrived, I was a bit concerned because of the crowd. I thought my meal would... More

Very good food but very slow service and unfortunately they are closed on Mondays, we were only 1 of 3 tables and it took a very long time to get our appetizers, it also took quite a while for our entrees.... everything was good just don't have any plans to get somewhere soon

The salsa verde is the best! I love the enchiladas verde, my husband usually goes for the shrimp, chicken and steak fajitas. Prices are great, portions are very generous. We always take home leftovers. This is a BYOB establishment, but there is a liquor store right around the corner and the friendly staff at El Coyote will happily provide glasses,... More
