One of the landmarks of Main Street Hamburg, New York celebrates 30 years in business this year and the food and atmosphere has never been better. Coyote Café, open since 1993, offers up some of the best Mexican cuisine in the South towns. Their menu is known for being highly customizable, as well as hosting a unique variety of plates and sides like sopa de fideo (Mexican spaghetti) one simply cannot find anywhere else in Western New York.
The entree portion of the menu is mainly split into two categories: signature dishes and protein-based ‘create your own’ classics like tacos, enchiladas, etc. One such option is the chimichanga, which comes in chicken, chorizo, carnitas, machaca, chicken fajita, steak fajita, grilled shrimp, or jackfruit varieties, with a generous smothering of either red sauce, green sauce, or queso blanco on top.
The aptly named Monster Burrito is another beloved customizable that is easily two meals in one for most diners, making it an incredible value. Featuring the same protein options mentioned above, the Monster also comes stuffed with pico de gallo, rice, beans, cheeses, and shredded lettuce, with an option to add sauce for a wet burrito for two dollars more.
For the margarita maniacs out there, Coyote Café has no shortage on their bar menu. The house margarita is an everyday value pretty much every day of the week, while their frozen margaritas are some of the best in the area too. For classic cocktails, the classic mojito is phenomenal, while the dulce vida paloma is out of this world good - especially if one asks for the muddled jalapeno!
