Laguna Local now in Hawaii for the last 21 years. Add flour tortillas and optional jalapeno. This is what I miss! As they say in Hawaii, "Broke of da mouth, Brah"

Langostino Tacos

We love this place. As usual, the Langostino Taco's were awesome. Everything was ready when I arrived, and the staff was very courteous. This place also has a wonderful breakfast menu and a great bar. They also do a good job with safety measures and social distancing.

Calamari Taco

Can never go wrong with this classic. Get it as a meal or a la carte. Pair it with any of the beer on hand and shot of the day and you can call it a good night. Although, anytime you're here is a good time, day or night.

Veggie Burrito

This is my all-time favorite veggie burrito. It is packed with tasty black beans, veggies, and cheese and topped with their red sauce and sour cream. It is truly delicious!

Calamari Taco

I don't even like calamari. Or at least, I didn't think I did until I tried Coyote's Calamari Taco!! So amazingly flavorful and the texture is amazing. Seriously, give it a try even if you (think you) don't like calamari!

My husband and I recently moved to Laguna Beach and finally got to trying Coyote Grill. We haven't eaten there yet, but picked up food to go while having a margarita at the bar. The ambiance is fantastic, the service is stellar, the FOOD THOUGH! So fresh, so good, I haven't ever had carne asada so GOOD! Looking forward to trying the lobster - it isn't on the to go menu so hope it opens back up soon :)

I had recently read an article about what chilaquilas were and, when I saw that it was on the menu, I decided to try it. Wow! I'm so very glad I did! It's now my favorite breakfast and I'll definitely be at Coyote Grill enjoying it again and again and again. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful environment for a special breakfast.

Chicken Burrito

The meat was cooked perfectly not chewy but able to keep the moisture, the wet sauce was amazing kept the burrito juicy but didn't over power, also recommend adding hot sauce for a little extra kick. Favorite dish!!

Small Stuffed Quesadilla

Coyote Grill offers a great menu with tons of options from delicious coffees to amazing drinks. We loved the margaritas, cold beers & surprise shot of the week. *Add a shot of amaretto to your margarita, you wont be sorry!* Chorizo & eggs with black beans and fried potatoes were perfect for breakfast with a buttery side of fluffy pancakes topped with fresh bananas. The BBQ ribs, stuffed quesadillas & bacon wrapped jalapeno appetizers were so tasty with drinks and a gorgeous ocean sunset view from the patio. A fun & relaxed atmosphere from sunrise to after sunset. And... The Whole Staff was Terrific! We can't wait to visit again, Coyote Grill is a must stop when you're in Laguna! Thanks for the great memories, drinks and food! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Coconut Shrimp

The coconut shrimp is absolutely the best anywhere, it's our fave dish at Coyote grill. Also the calamari tacos are yum!! They also have SoCal favorites like carne asada, carnitas and really good chips and salsa. We love Coyote Grill, their staff is very friendly and we're very conscious of safety guidelines. We always recommend Coyote to our friends, relatives, Yelp, etc. Great view from the patio as well, Don

Bean & Cheese Burrito

The burritos were fine. What was EXTREMELY upsetting is that I am a senior and with CV-19 pandemic still hanging around I chose to order on line so I could pick up my food promptly and avoid any "risks". I walk over the 2 blocks from my place and wear my mask. When I get there I see that there are 2 young men with no masks chatting with your employee about wanting to buy booze. He checks their idea and then he spends 5 minutes making 2 drinks and returns and I am still waiting...Then a third young man joins the other two and orders a drink. I tell your staff I am just here to pick up my food and give him my name. He continues to make another drink. Nobody has a mask and to keep social distancing I walk away. Then another person comes and it takes 12 minutes as my food sits there and gets cold and as I am exposed to at least 5 other people without masks. Two other older customers come up with masks and also are waiting. This is totally unacceptable. Even without the pandemic nobody should have to wait this long after I get an email from you guys telling me my food was ready...and in fact it was ready-sitting there. I would suggest you can make money selling booze but if you want to do that spend the money to have a bar tender or someone else making booze while your long standing customers like me do not have to wait this long. I could have made the burrito at home in this amount of time and not taken any risks. I would appreciate a reply. I have chosen not to post this on YELP because you guy can easily fix this problem.

Shrimp Ceviche

Delicious, and we have eaten Ceviches all over the world. And the fish tacos plate was terrific. My wife loved the carne asada tacos too. Best food anywhere, even Mexican as well. Great atmosphere. Even today you can order their great food pick it up and go home to it. Yummy.

Langostino Tacos

These tacos are hands down THE best ever. Although I've tried many other items on the menu, I will always order these! Generous servings and they are always willing to accommodate any substitutions - for me, I choose the mixed vegetables instead of the beans.

Carne Asada Tacos

Coyote Grill has a special place in our hearts. We have been coming to this restaurant for years. We started going there for brunch on Sundays. It was always consistently delicious... every single breakfast dish!! We eventually tried their lunch and then dinner. Everything is always delicious there and the carne asada tacos were even better if that's possible. Thank you for always delivering such consistency with your dishes!! We love the view of the ocean, the outdoor deck area, the food and the staff that has been there for many years. We are very grateful.

Steak Burrito

Have been going regularly to CG for great local food and drinks. This last time, we had total attitude from the young hostess because 5 grown adults wanted to sit at a table for 5, not 4. And the marg's were just awful this time. We have really enjoyed our local restaurant but a bad experience can just ruin it quickly. Sorry.

Black Bean Tostada

Our family has come to the Coyote Grill for at least 20 years! The grandson and my son love the Happy Hour Enchilada Plates. I usually take the Fish or Black Bean Tostada. Of course, those of us who are qualified to get liquor, have to have a (small) Margarita or Cadillac. The others might have a Tom Collins. Room for dessert? Fried ice-cream. A great place to relax and eat well.

Huevos Rancheros

I've been coming to Coyote Grill since I was a kid, and while I no longer live in Laguna, I still make a point to celebrate my birthday at Coyote Grill every year. This restaurant is truly something special. They've gone through a few big changes - the menu, new art a decade ago or more now, they've updated the fish tablecloths - but the sunset view and welcoming atmosphere is always spot on. The food has only gotten better over the past 20 years, and the margaritas are top-notch. It may seem silly to drive over an hour each way to grab Mexican food when I already live in a city with so much good Mexican food, but it's worth it. Enjoy a great happy hour, awesome breakfasts, and the cinnamon banana ice cream and chimichanga. The staff is always welcoming and usually has a great sense of humor. There's a reason this place is still growing and getting busier every year!

Fish Tacos

Coyote Grill is a little gem that you want to tell people about, but you kinda want to keep it your little secret. It's a locals restaurant where the staff will know your name after you start going a couple of times. They have the best fish tacos we've found north of Baja, and their margaritas go down way to easy too! Their manager Desiree will take amazing care of you, and the sunset from the patio is just what you need after a long day. If you're looking for great eats and a staff full of smiles, this is your place.
