I have a set of guy friends from a previous job and they swear by El Coyote and their steak. So much so that when I went with them once - I was shamed for even looking at a menu!
Recently they opened in downtown Cincinnati right behind Fountain Square in the old Cadillac Ranch. It's a nice location and they benefited from all the money that Cadillac put into the location.
There is a mechanical bull inside - since it was lunch we did not partake.
The salsa is good - you can tell it uses fire-roasted vegetables as it's a touch bitter but it also has a good spice level. I didn't love the chips - they're a bit stale.
As a dish on it's own - it was good and I liked it but didn't love it. I'm not sure why - that combination of cream cheese & sour cream is very very rich.
Why Should You Go? Well the steak is what folks go for - you can get sides of bearnaise or cilantro butter (according to the boys - you are supposed to get both). The Tex Mex is okay - it's nice for a change of pace downtown. Our server was very animated and fun - but the service was slow (kitchen & check more than him). I'd go - but with low expectations.
