Nice casual atmosphere, excellent food, and great specials. Wednesday night seems the best deal -- BOGO on entrees! The Happy Hour Margaritas are not weak or watered-down, either.

They were having a super bowl party and had complimentary snacks. They were very generous and really tasty, wings, taquitos, tamales, etc. Nice people and a lot of fun!

Monster burritos with quick service and well-used decor. Breakfast burritos here are a "must do" if you visit Catalina. My family loves the chorizo, egg and black bean. Enough food to keep you full til lunch. Classic!

Good place to meet friends and have a beer ! Finger foods are upper end frozen foods mostly deep fried but good. Not really a family dinner type place..

We had lunch and cold Mexican beers here while watching college football games. We enjoyed the food and excellent service from the waiters. Prices were a good value to the food we ordered. Located in a good central location to central Avalon.

We stopped in for supper and drinks our last day on the island - the food was ok but wasn't impressed with the fish n chips, I mean we are on an island. We didn't find the drinks to be anything special and there wasn't a view.

This is a wonderfully located and killer food. Had the menudo and it was very authentic. The drinks are very inexpensive.

Coyote Joe's is located on one of the side streets off of the main boardwalk. We were looking for a place to enjoy a quick drink for Happy Hour and relax and watch the people wandering thru the shops. The service was good and our drinks cold - just what we needed.

I will come clean right up front and say that I live in Texas and we set a high bar for Mexican Food. Coyote Joe's did not make the grade. The food was just OK and the service was pretty poor. It seemed like our waitress forgot about us for a while and the plates were just barely tolerably warm... More
