El Coyote,F train last stop

El Coyote,F train last stop [179th-exit at the far rear of the train,ascend and it's there].
This place has not appeared for a while.

It's a lovely little mexican place; I had deferred posting on it since I went there for lunch a while back and specials were posted - I like a light lunch only and indeed the snappera Veracruz was a huge platter and outstanding but I did not like the entree price of $19.99.

Well,I recovered from the sticker shock and discovered there is an excellent LUNCH MENU - about 18 items with $$4.75-7.75 range.

First,there are very nice people. Today,they had a table full of Chinese in convivial repast.
Then,there is chips and nutritious and excellent salsa free.
There is a salad as option- the salad is delightful,fresh,colorful,very light dressing,even filling.
Several times I have Item 21 of the Lunch menu - chicken filet drenched in a delicious tomato based sauce with poblano,jalapeno ̃,onions.Quite a kick and all this salsa,salad for 5.75$.

Now,as I've said there is an extensive dinner menu with what seems really high class stuff,snapper,shrimp,lobster etc.
The only thing that's not high class is the prices.

BTW,it's three stops on the F Line from the Queens courthouses and two stops from the great Merrick Blvd Branch of the QUEENS LIBRARY - my!! what a place this is!!
