We’re the Best Around!

That’s right, we’re certified, awarded Best Mexican food in San Diego! A few days ago the California Restaurant Association named the Cafe Coyote the best Mexican food in town. Sure, we’ve gotten the award before (four times!), but we figured it was time to come out of retirement and really wow everyone again.

The ceremony was a blast, with over 1,200 people in the restaurant industry and awards for just about every category. But the real pleasure was that the CRA raised over $160,000 to help promote the best equipment and education for people in the food service industry.

We went up against some pretty stiff competition, but in the end, our blend of atmosphere, great food, and delightful margaritas pushed us to the top. But we couldn’t have done it without all of our amazing customers and amazing staff, and we want to offer something up as a way of thanks. In addition to our regular specials, we’re giving away an order of chips and dips for each table. That’s one of the things that made us famous!

Plus, we’ve got a bunch of other great specials going on to celebrate. Make a reservation for Father’s Day and we’ll give you a commemorative glass for the occasion! You can also join us for Taco Tuesday, Tequila and Lobster Thursday, or on any day of the week to taste our delicious monthly specials. It’s a great way to enjoy the taco of the week, new tequila drinks, and our famous lobster dish.

Join us this month to celebrate and enjoy some of the best food and drinks we have to offer! We’re always happy to see you, whether you’ve a regular, or you’ve never been around before. No matter what kind of Mexican fare you’re looking for, be it tacos, any manner of tequila drink, or just a nice dining atmosphere with a dash of entertainment, come by and pay us a visit. You’ll see why they say we serve the best Mexican in San Diego!

St. Patrick’s Specials

While there’s nothing wrong with a plate full of corned beef and cabbage with a Guinness to wash it down, after four centuries of feasting in the honor of Saint Patrick, it might be time for a little innovation. So in honor of the most celebrated of all saintly feast days, we at the Coyote Café have put together some special recipes to get you pumped for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The Shamrock Margarita is a vivid, tasty new take on an old favorite. With a splash of mango and some bright blue curacao liqueur, you get a party-ready cocktail that’s easy to drink and easy on the eyes. We have also just announced our house special Leprechaun Margarita which features a hint of melon and a visage so green it could banish the snakes from Ireland all over again.

If you can’t make it out in time  for the big day, there’s no need to worry, because both the Shamrock Margarita and the Leprechaun Margarita will be available for the entire month of March at $7.95 a piece.

In preparation for the feast, Coyote Café is also your go-to place for the traditional Taco Tuesday on March 13th. We’ll be serving our house special corned beef tacos, which come served in a festive green flour tortilla for $2 a piece all day.

On the big day itself you don’t want to miss our Corned beef taco plate!It comes heaped with potatoes and cabbage and topped with a sour cream mustard sauce as well as Mexican rice and refried beans, all for $9.50.

Taco Tuesday at Café Coyote

Café Coyote will celebrate Taco Tuesdays with $2 tacos every Tuesday from 3:30 p.m. until close. The menu for Taco Tuesday will include nine tacos that will be reoccurring regulars on the menu each week. These Taco Tuesday menu staples will include Beef Tacos, Fish Tacos, Chicken Tacos and Carne Asada Tacos.

 

In addition, Café Coyote will feature a special taco each week. Specialty tacos will center around fresh, creative ingredients in unusual combinations. These specialty tacos include the Fried Calamari Chipotle Taco, the Irish Taco and the Chicken Diablo Taco. Café Coyote’s website has a detailed list of each specialty taco they will feature so diners can plan ahead each week.

 

Café Coyote will also be creating a new taco that the restaurant’s Facebook and Twitter fans will have a chance to take part in naming. This new taco will become a staple on Café Coyote’s menu each week.
