The drinks are great. I normally order an appletini, and it had just the right amount of apple to vodka, not to overpowering. The food is even better. It is an eclectic menu with a Southwestern twist, so you can find just about anything to wet your appetite. The spinach dip is to die for, a definite must-try. I had the lamb shank, which was tender and just right. The staff is attentive, and this is a definite place for the critic or just a food lover.

Want to dine at the famous Coyote Café but don’t want to pay that much for dinner? In the warmer months, you can eat at their rooftop cantina for about half of what you’d spend in the regular restaurant. You don’t need a reservation, but we did have to wait close to a half hour for a table. That’s not too bad, especially considering I showed up with a group of 15 people at 7:00. I was impressed with how fast they seated us considering the size of the group.
Several traveling companions and I ate here after a very long day of traveling from the east coast. The festive, open-air atmosphere was just what we needed to get out of travel mode and into vacation mode. The margaritas didn’t hurt either!
The Cantina menu focuses on classic Mexican dishes such as quesadillas, tacos, tamales, etc. It’s not the fine dining you’ll find in the restaurant, but the food is most delicious. I had the chicken tacos, which were very spicy, but among the best I’ve had. Several other people raved about the duck quesadillas. The portions are generous but not so huge that they will feed two people.
The service was fair. The place was packed so I’m assuming that’s why it seemed to take longer than usual to get our food. It was also hard to find a waitress at times.
As for the cost, each person had an entrée, a drink and shared appetizers. We each spent less than $20. Dinners in the main restaurant start at $20. All considered I walked away a very happy – and full – customer.

I had an awesome Chorizo Green Chile Relleno for an appetizer- a cornmeal Crusted Stuffed Green Chile. And for the entre I had a very flavorful Grilled Double Cut Pork Chop with a Mezcal-Habanero Glaze. Best pork chops I have ever eaten. Needless to say, I was completely satisfied and full with this meal. Ally enjoyed a superb Spicy Honey Glazed Lamp Chops dish, which she argues was better than mine!
