About Us

Our Story

El Coyote Restaurant chain was started in 1998. The goal was to bring the authentic Mexican taste with elaborate and flavorful dishes to the Connecticut area and surroundings.

With the successful opening of these restaurants, El Coyote expanded into Queens New York in 2008 with openings in Jackson Heights and subsequently the Forest Hills location.

At El Coyote, only the freshest ingredients are used on our delicious traditional Mexican dishes in a family friendly atmosphere. Our exquisite guacamole is prepared right at your table, served with warmed corn tortillas.
We offer an extensive menu full of Mexican favorites. If you’ve ever been to Mexico and had the opportunity to taste the Mole Poblano, you’ll be treated to the same authentic taste that you would find in Puebla.

We also pride ourselves on our full bar menu and a varied selection of Margaritas which includes our signature Lime Boat Margarita. And for the family, we also offer a comprehensive kid’s menu.
We welcome you to the El Coyote family!
