Décor: The festive atmosphere at El Coyote Loco is undeniable. Brightly colored flags hang from the ceiling and striped tablecloths create a look that’s both fun and inviting. The bar is large and is partially separated from the dining area, allowing patrons to choose the type of experience best for their night.
Drinks: The drink menu includes a wide selection of beers on tap and bottled, including Corona and Dos Equis. Their regular margarita is available at $5.95 by the glass, $16.95 for a ½ pitcher, and 28.95 for a full pitcher. Other great choices include their pina colada ($7.95 per glass) and their red or white sangria ($7.95 per glass).
Appetizers: Portions sizes for the apps at El Coyote Loco can easily be a full meal, so be sure to take a close look. Jalapeno poppers, breaded and deep fried to crispy perfection ($8.95) are popular as well as their nachos deluxe ($8.95) which come with Mexican sausage in addition to beans, jalapenos, and melted cheese. Hungry guests or large groups can get the sampler platter ($11.95 for small size) and includes 6 different apps like nachos, flautas, and quesadillas.
Entrees: The great thing about eating here is the wide range of choices. If you’ve already had an appetizer or just looking for a smaller meal, try the beef taco and cheese enchilada meal (11.95) which is served with rice and refried beans.
