Coyote Drive-In

Coyote Drive-In is a trip back in time. Not only does this drive-in feature great big-screen movies, but food and drink aren’t far away thanks to the Coyote Canteen. Your date is sure to find something to their liking of the canteen’s extensive menu, featuring everything from popcorn to a Cordon Blu Sandwich. Break the ice by cracking a beer from the drink menu that features draft, cans, and aluminum pints.
