Loco Coyote Grill

Finding a road trip stop with real character always feels like an accomplishment. Highway exits are so often populated with nothing but mini marts and golden arches, it’s hard to find something unique. That’s a quality you’ll certainly find at the Loco Coyote Grill, and long as you see the sign.

    Need to get the original owners to teach you how to cook BBQ. it really sucks!

    The McClanahans have turned the Loco Coyote into an amazing fun place to hang… It’s clean and the waitstaff are amazing. The BBQ is the best I’ve had (the brisket taco is to die for). It is so much better than when the Hammonds had it. They’ve taken a run down dirty place and have breathed new life into it. Definitely worth the drive now!!!

    this place was a neat place to hangout , now it is nothing but a bar and tourist trap.
