Because of an emergency I had (no fault of the restaurant) I couldn't eat the food right away, so it was cold by the time I got to it. I do think it would've been awesome. Chicken nachos (not on the menu but they made them anyway), burger with onion rings and a grilled cheese and fries for my kid.... More

We've been to Coyote Sams numerous times and the food is always great and the service wonderful. Half of the building feels like a Bar and Grill and the other half a more conventional restaurant. I've been to both halves but like the bar and grill atmosphere better, plus there's a fantast deck to sit outside in good weather. It's... More

After tracking down someone to seat us, we were seated outside. Very pleasant patio area with a water feature and what appeared to be a fire pit. We were the only customers outside (and possibly inside) when we first arrived. Our waiter was super friendly and attentive. Our two boys were roaming around. An older man (owner/manager?) came out and... More

Came in to hang out on the patio because they are dog friendly there. Had an awesome Coyote Philly. Split with my wife and it was plenty. Happy hour margaritas were perfect as was the patio setting. The owner is very personable.

Thanks to the writings on trip advisor. My wife and I are there. She had the steak and I had the chicken fried steak. The baked beens were great tasting The food was above average. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is comfortable and interesting. The prices are good. Not expensive at all.

Went there on the recommendation of Texas Monthly top 50 burgers. The magazine got it right. The Kobe burger is juicy and has a mild beef flavor. I had mine cooked medium rare with tomatoes, onions, cheese, bacon and mayo. The bun was the right size for the burger so I didn't wind up with too little or too much... More

Walked in to a family friendly place. Found great prices along with a menu with a variety of menu options my co workers and I shared a few things. The quail stuffed avocados with the sauce on it was divine. Another had brisket that was so tender it melted in your mouth not too much barbecue sauce not too much... More

We drove way out of the way to eat here. We chose it from the reviews. The building is lovely. Our waiter very nice. Food was ok. We do not recommend the quail stuff avocado. BBQ sauce does not go with fried avocado. We probably will not be back since it is so far from I20.

Took my wife here for and afternoon out and we should've gone elsewhere. The restaurant was not crowded but it still took awhile to receive our food. The food was marginal at best and the service was lacking. Our tea glasses were empty for along time before getting refills. We aren't ones to complain so we said nothing, we just... More
