Crazy Coyote Tacos

Wind not visible

I took advantage of a break in Chuck's chemo to take him to lunch at Crazy Coyote Tacos in Cabazon. Crazy Coyote Tacos is a little taco stand just outside the gate at the Morongo Indian Reservation. They serve tacos, burritos, quesadillas, tamales and some other stuff. The only thing I care about is the tacos.

I ordered a two taco plate which comes with two tacos, rice, beans and a can of soda for eight dollars. You're thinking to yourself, "Wow, eight dollars is a lot of money for two tacos." It's not.

The tacos come in steak, chicken, chili verde and something else (I wasn't paying attention). I ordered two steak and Chuck decided to try a steak and a chicken. Several minutes later our tacos were brought to the window in Styrofoam clam shell containers.

We sat down at a table and tried to hold onto everything because the wind was blowing pretty hard. The tacos are made with homemade corn tortillas and are garnished with onion, cilantro, and hot or medium salsa. We had the hot salsa.

The tacos are about six-inches across and are stuffed with the most savory steak you have ever eaten. The tortillas are tender and chewy just like Grandma used to make (well, not my grandma). The salsa is hot but won't peel the paint off walls. The beans are delicious. I guess the rice is good too but I've never tried it.

I love this place. It's a little bit of a drive but well worth it. I think they are open seven days a week from 11:00AM to 7:00PM. They are on the north side of the 10 freeway at the Fields Road exit.

Sally's husband, Dean, has had the very great privilege of having had some of thes very good tacos. If the wind doesn't blow you or your meal away this is an experience to drive for.
