My husband and I had a fabulous dinner at the Coyote Cafe. The fried squash blossoms and lobster were beautifully presented and were delectable! The service was fantastic, professional and friendly.

It came highly recommended by a local so my husband & I tried the roof top bar & restaurant. We had the Frito Pie & Skirtsteak enter & both were wonderful. It certainly is a happening place with lots of fun folks!

There is an elevator but the rooftop is VERY crowded and I would not recommend if you use a walker or wheelchair.
