Coyote Flaco

Coyote Flaco

José Bernardo Luna Martínez has always been involved in the restaurant business. He first began by helping his father, and later became the one in charge of the family businesses. José took these experiences and knowledge about the restaurant business to heart. He and his wife, Alida Clares, decided to start their own culinary tradition and continue the family history.


They began by organizing small events every Saturday in their home, where they brought in great chefs and musicians who were their friends. They have continued this formula successfully in their restaurant. It has now been six years since they opened Coyote Flaco in the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende. Not only does the restaurant offer great food, an impressive setting, and excellent service, but they also bring well-known musicians who entertain the customers without any cover charge. The live music they bring creates a warm, inviting environment offering an ideal setting for a meal.


José Bernardo is the head chef and the creator of each and every delicious recipe on the menu. He works with local products and cooks his meals over a grill fed with mesquite briquettes. Some of his dishes are well-marbled ribeye, a pork roast with chipotle salsa flavored with cinnamon, brick oven pizza, and lasagna.


Aside from the fantastic country setting, the great food and service, and the music, there is a very special ingredient that truly makes this a unique experience. There is a cave on the property which was discovered some years ago and is now a federally protected site. An entrance and then a staircase lead to the bottom of the cave where the fossilized remains of a 100,000-year-old mammoth lie. Here you can see the scattered bones that include molars, a femur and part of the hip, and part of the skull. A visit to El Coyote Flaco Restaurant is also a visit to ancient pre-history.
