If you like the Americanized version Mexican food, then this is your place. If you're looking for a real Mexican food then you should not go here. They do a good job with the drinks but the plates are not 100% Mexican. In my opinion, this is not a place for a good weekend dinner, it is more like an... More

If you are mexican like myself I am always looking for a good mexican spot that will have authentic flavors and plates. I tried the sopa de tortilla and the tacos de pescado. The tacos were OK, they were cold to start with but the tacos was something I could make at home in 5 minutes. I had my hopes... More

We went here for a happy hour this past week. The frozen margaritas were awesome. We just had a few apps...two different types of nachos and empanadas. Decent apps for the price and the service was really great. We would definitely go back. Small, authentic Mexican restaurant that shouldn't be missed.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant! The restaurant has a homey atmosphere and the staff is warm and friendly. They are happy to accommodate large family parties with small children. Our favorite menu items are enchilada rojas, fajitas, coyote wrap, and chimichanga. You can order pitchers of margaritas too! So if you want delicious, authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices...

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Coyote Flaco last evening. The restaurant was nicely crowded, which gave us a few minutes to enjoy some sips of our delicious margaritas at the bar. Once our table was ready, we were tempted by several dinner specials -- but opted for burritos, which were excellent. Great service, nice casual atmosphere, and delicious food.... More

Nice small neighborhood restaurant catering almost exclusively to locals. Owned and operated by a family from South America so the food is authentic. Everything is good but not exceptional. My favorite dish is the beef fajitas.

Food was very skimpy. For 6 people they gave us 8 chips for the skimpy salsaWe picked up the food and when we got it home, it was too late to do anything about it. Very disappointing

Went with a party of 4 on a Friday night. The restaurant was not busy and sat us right away. It did get more crowded as the evening progressed. I had one of their specials! I thought it was very good. Fresh and authentic tasting. They give plenty of food and chips and salsa!

I have not been to Coyote Flaco in quite some time, but I always remember a great Mexican meal experience when i think of it. Perhaps that is why our meal last night was so disappointing. Service was quite slow, which i can overlook if the meal makes up for it, however the meal was flat overall. free chips and... More

Very small family place, quite, out of the way on the south side of Hartford CT. The owners are actually from El Salvadore so the "Mexican" recipes can have slight twist. Nice place.
