Kyote is an unincorporated community in Atascosa County, Texas, United States. According to the Handbook of Texas, the community had a population of 34 in 2000. It is located within the San Antonio metropolitan area.
The Kyote post office opened in 1927; postmaster William D. Rogers named it after the area's coyote population. The alternate spelling was chosen due to a similarly-named community elsewhere in Texas, although the other place was spelled Cayote. The post office closed in 1935; by this point, the community also had a school, one business, and ten residents. The population spiked to fifty in 1951 after oil was discovered nearby. Its population stabilized around twenty-five from the 1960s through the 1990s and was reported as thirty-four in 2000.
Kyote had its school in 1935. Today, the community is served by the Poteet Independent School District.
