What a delicious restaurant! Mary, the owner, is absolutely wonderful and a present figure in the dining room. Her staff is attentive and friendly. The BYOB is a great option as well. Must go for great Mexican food!

If you're looking for standard Mexican offerings, El Coyote should definitely please, but for those with more adventurous palates, the menu may feel tired and predicable. The restaurant certainly provides good tasting dishes of the expected variety, but it unfortunately lacks truly memorable qualities. El...More
