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. During summer months, the kitchen highlights fresh seafood, offering such delights as watermelon shrimp ceviche or a catch-of-the-day with poblano sauce and fresh pesto vegetables.
Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio with outdoor seating, where they confront an enchanting terrace replete with a stone fountain, the shade of leaves, and a delicate floral aroma.
