I've been visiting El Coyote since 1972 and while they still have all the old favorites the menu has kept up with the times. First off the Margaritas are excellent. Pair that with some fresh guacamole and you're off to a good start. We're not too adventurous, when we find something we like we keep ordering it. My go to... More

If you want to have a good time, drink large and inexpensive Margaritas in a lively and hip atmosphere, come here, but don't expect the food to be good. The food here makes Acapulco's look gourmet. You can't even call it Mexican. More like what an American who never went to Mexico would cook what he thought was Mexican food.... More

One word - margarita! I only needed one. I love, love, LOVE when I get a great drink at a good price at a restaurant. I love Cazadores tequila, and the waitress allowed me to substitute the reposado for the anejo and didn't charge me extra. I ordered the rib eye, which came with rice and beans. The meat was... More

This place has been around for ever. My first visit (over Labor Day) They have been around a long time for a good reason, me thinks. Plenty of free parking before 4pm (valet after that) We were greeted as soon as we walked it. The place has a nasty old musty smell that I have to imagine the people working... More

I actually really like this place but like so many businesses they are really cutting down portion sizes and some quality. The service is good here, the decor cheezy but fun. The problem, as stated above is when you compare the place today with what it was a few years ago. The cups for salsa are tiny. They are the... More

Busy and popular Mexican restaurant. Food may not be the most gourmet you've ever tasted but good and good value. Service is excellent.

Even though I had lived in the LA area most of my life, this was my first time to El Coyote while on a trip to LA. The food was as good as I had read about. My husband had the #1 combo - - the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada and I had a huge burrito. Both were... More

I was taken here by my friend in LA who speaks very highly of this restaurant. It was extremely busy, and quite noisy, and we had to wait little while for a table - not a problem, we hadn't made a reservation. It serves pretty standard Mexican fare and I have to say that I've had better in most other... More

I really was looking forward to visiting El Coyote since it is a restaurant with a lot of history in the area. We went there for lunch on our first day in LA and I would say our visit was pretty good. The food was more authentic and fairly cheap. All in all it wasn't bad but it wasn't great.
