First Review by veglogic

Great choice for a family with mixed dietary preferences - Edit

We found this place when planning a trip to Boone, and it was the perfect choice for a Friday night dinner with my vegan daughter, my picky meat-eating son and my husband and myself, who enjoy a beer with our meal! Lots of good options for all eaters. We really enjoyed the interesting variety of salsas and the surprising mix of flavors in our meals (e.g., plantains and pineapple in my burrito, strawberries and bananas in the salsa, etc.). Would definitely go again the next time we're in town!

Pros: Tasty food, Friendly staff, Good beer options

Cons: Crowded

Great food - Edit

I've been here a couple of times and have left happy after each meal. Coyote has a variety of vegan and vegetarian options and are more than willing to make any alterations. Even though all of their options are great, I always go back to their Mesa Verde bowl.

Pros: Good food, Good portions

Messy presentation and flavors - Edit

I second a previous reviewer's concerns about cross-contamination of animal products into vegan food. The servers we encountered were nice enough and understood vegan diets, but there was also cheese stuck to the outside of our burritos. Also, every time I've eaten there I've gotten sick. This makes me wonder what slipped into the food I attempted to order animal product-free. They slather a spicy veganaise on anything your order vegan--making a lot of their food taste the same. Over all the presentation was messy, and so were their flavors.

I was impressed with their gluten free options--they even have different ciders and gluten free beers. For a place to advertise itself as being extremely vegan friendly, they need to clean up their actual cooking and make sure what goes out to a vegan customer is actually vegan.

If you're vegan and in Boone, I'd say go here in a pinch but check out the Hob Nob cafe for safer and tastier options.

Pros: gluten free beer

Cons: animal product contamination

needs attention to detail - Edit

service slow, servers exude that "i'm so hip and i'm bored by you and this place" vibe, menu states they focus on vegan diet(as well as gluten free- 98% of items have dairy or meat on them but you can "edit" to make them vegan. my biggest fault with this place is that the food isn't clean- my vegan burrito had 3 hunks of chicken mixed in, my friends tempeh burrito had cheese shreds sticking to the outside of the tortilla.this ahs happened several times and to multiple vegans i know. i can't trust that my grilled veggies in a dish didn't cook next to or in animal fat. this coupled with the snotty attitudes of staff and general dirtiness makes this place a "NO" for me.

Pros: prices, variety

Cons: cross contamination, poor attitudes, cost

Great place - Edit

I saw this place on happycow and had to check it out. It had great service. Not a huge selection of vegetarian food but you will be able to find something you like easily. Great beer list, decent prices, and it is a perfect place to go to sit outside and have a few beers and eat some healthy food. I will be going back.

Good Place - Edit

Sometimes the place is busy, it's small so you may have to wait. The food is good and there are lots of vegetarian and vegan options. The staff understands the difference between vegetarian and vegan, a nice plus.

Pros: Yummy, Staff/service

Coyote Kitchen - Edit

Fantastic food, when it's well cooked. Consistency is a problem. But, wow, when it's right, it's heavenly. The soups are unusual and scrumptious. I've taken many people to eat at Coyote Kitchen and every one -- vegan, vegetarian, meat-eater -- found it wonderful and goes back often. Any item can be altered to be vegan/vegetarian. I find it best to eat at lunch as the supper cooks aren't as on top of getting it right.

Pros: varied menu, killer soups, large portions

Cons: inconsistency, can be slow

Great Veg Options - Edit

While the restaurant isn't fully vegetarian, they still offer plenty to choose from. I believe that all meat dishes can be made with either tofu or tempeh subbed for the meat. Most if not all vegetarian options come with dairy but the staff actually understands veganism and will help you customize your order to make it vegan. They also offer a PB and Chocolate Vegan Cake for dessert. The only negative I have is that service can be slow even when they aren't busy.

Pros: Great Food, Knowledgeable/Friendly Staff, Large Portions

Cons: Poor Service Occasionally
