Chefs at Coyote Crossing put great care into crafting their authentic Mexican cuisine—for instance, they blend 54 ingredients into a signature mole sauce that takes two days to make. This detail-oriented approach takes them beyond standard tacos to dishes such as chipotle prime beef tips or tampiquena, a thin-cut, grilled steak served with sautéed poblano peppers. Even when the chefs roll everyday burritos, the packages burst with creative ingredients such as pumpkin-flower sauce or tinga-style shredded chicken. The kitchen also highlights fresh seafood in dishes such as Yucatan citrus-marinated grouper and blackened scallops Coyote served with mango-habanero puree.
Crowned by a large faux cactus, Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style with vivid desert hues, much like Wile E. Coyote's fall fashion line. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio, where a stone fountain burbles in the shade of delicate leaves.
