Traditional Mexican Food In the Heart of Old Town San Diego


Latest Write up on

At Café Coyote y Cantina, the tortillas are made fresh by hand, the margaritas are large and frosty, and the mariachis serenade diners in the festive courtyard dining area. Café Coyote is also one of only two “tequila houses” in the US certified by the prestigious Academia del Tequila in Mexico City and serves 120 tequilas, especially on “Tequila Thursdays” (which, luckily, are also Lobster Thursdays). There’s an excellent variety of the traditional tacos, burritos, chimichangas, enchiladas, carnitas, tamales, and the like, and portions are large. For seafood lovers, the tequila lime shrimp are succulent and flavorful, and the pescado Monterrey features moist and flaky sea bass baked in a tomatillo sauce and cheese. Open daily 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.2461 San Diego Ave.
