“Don't let the location fool you -- really good Mexican food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

El Coyote was recommended by a friend, but we were a little taken aback by its location in an aging strip mall. It's worth the trip, though -- food choices are varied with many steak and pork options, not just the usual tacos/burritos/enchiladas. Steak and chicken were tender, chili verde was nicely spiced and the perfect level of heat. Chips are very good, thin and crisp, but you don't get the usual basket on the table at the beginning of the meal. Service was prompt and friendly. We got there early (6:30) on a Saturday evening and were the only guests until 8:00, but perhaps it has more of a late-night, bar-oriented clientele. Worth a try, and a second visit.

“Best Mexican breakfast in town”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The menu has a wide range of dishes with plenty of vegetarian options. The Huevos Rancheros are authentic and delicious. The even have a chili relleno omelet that is to die for.

Coffee and service was wonderful and you can visit the tortilleria for fresh corn tortillas despues comida.

“Hidden Gem!!!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

Best gourmet Mexican food in Durham,NC. Super perfessional/nice waiters and bartender. The corn chips are the best around! I've been there 5 times and I've never had a bad experience or bad food. The location is kind of out of the way but its worth the trek.
