“Best spare ribs in Carlsbad”
Review of Coyote Bar & Grill

Coyote Bar & Grill
Ranked #1 of 10 Nightlife in Carlsbad
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 June 2014

The place is loud and crowded - but feels like one's having a great party at home. Fast and friendly service by beautiful young ladies, who will always smile and be nice, whatever workload is forced on them. Lucky employer!

Taco Tuesday but I went off the regular menu. Carnitas: average. Beans: average. Rice: average. Server: average. Atmosphere: average. Honestly, there is nothing about this place that makes it stand out. I wouldn't return but I could see how people who lived nearby would enjoy the cheap taco night.

Stopped in for lunch, sat indoors although they have a great outdoor dining area as well but since it was sunny and hot we chose inside. Server was attentive and helpful, I had the carnitas, a house specialty, which were served as a full portion and were well balanced in seasoning. Loved the free salsa and chips, the salsa was quite blackened due to the use of fresh roaster vegetables. Wife has the special of the day which was a very meaty chili and salad, also very well seasoned and served with bean/rice sides, lot's of food for the money. Drinks were cold and we had a very relaxing lunch in the un-crowded indoors area

Their salsa alone is worth the trip! Their tacos and fajitas are pretty great too! My grandpa loves to go here on karaoke nights. A lot of people come for the great variety of tequilas. The service varies over the years and can largely depend on what time of day and what day you are there. Popular nights are not known for great service! I think it's ideal around lunch time though!

I have been coming to this place. I can only speak for a few things:
Food: their smoky salsa is outstanding, and their mini tacos are the best (only thing I have ordered in the last 20 years lol)
Service: its a hit and miss. It can get very very crowded and they don't have enough people working. The girls do as much as they can but it can get tricky
Environment: you will not be bored, crowds vary from a day to the next, from summer to winter...as much as the bands...but you will be entertained.
Bathroom: ONLY 2 stalls, pathetic
its an icon of the beach city and geat for a late summer afternoon beer....with or without kids
