Dos Coyotes - Sacramento

I finally made it here for dinner tonight and was fairly disappointed in the food. I always get nervous when the website says food without lard or MSG, but I tried to keep an open mind. I had the Colorado Enchiladas plate after seeing the famous "Angus Colorado" on the menu. The chips and salsa were above average; the chips were nicely sized and crispy, and the salsas were mixed. I tried the "mild" pico de gallo which was very good and the "medium" green which was not spicy at all, more sweet with onions (OK, but weird).

The food came and my first bite of rice confirmed the meal. I always judge a Mexican place by its rice and beans. The rice was bland and the refried beans were also fairly bland (Lard Please!). The enchiladas were good, except that the meat seemed overcooked and dry. I think the kitchen grills the meat too much, then soaks it in the sauce as opposed to cooking it directly in the sauce. There was a good cheese ratio and the sauces were quite tasty.

I tried it, now I will likely never go back. There are too many better places in Sacramento to fill my Mexican urges. Note: I went to the Arden Fair location, others may be different.
