if a childhood memory of a tostada with canned vegetables on it brings you back to a restaurant, you know it's nostalgia, not great food that brings you back.
I have been coming here for years and I love it. Love the fact that over the years the food is consistently good. We always have a great time whether we are here with family or friends. One the of best Mexican restaurants in Los Angeles (Fairfax district). Brought some out of town guests here from Philadelphia and they too... More
I like to eat at El Coyote because the food is excellent and the price is right! I always ask for my favorate waiter "Roberto" who always looks after me and knows just what I want! Maybe I am in a rut, but that is what I like!! Tha atmosphire looks like a Mexican Christmas,however, the waitress's do wear athentic... More
I love sitting at the bar and having a couple of margarita's. Usually there's a game on, and bar patrons are usually pretty friendly. Bartenders are great, attentive, but not overly so. Be careful, those margaritas are STRONG, even though they may not seem like it. Food is OK, nothing spectacular sticks out, it's just a great atmosphere, so if... More
El Coyote is a great Mexican Cafe with the best margarita i have ever drank. The tacos are also very good. We had a great time there, hope to visit again.
Good Mex food, Ok drinks, fair prices. Interior is pretty dated, but I guess its part of the places charm. Food was a bit off a few years ago, but they seemed to have made a comeback.

It was convenient, though, and good enough for when my mom didn't want to cook. Now, years later, the food is very good, most of the time. The menu consists... More
First time here. The place is cute inside and busy. It seemed like the servers knew most the customers by name and treated them like family. There were hugs and smiles for most. The menu is limited with the main entrees you would expect. Tacos, enchiladas, and tamales. The food was fine. You pay for a side of sour cream... More
Super friendly staff, great food , and possibly the best Margarita (or two) I have ever had in my life.I liked how at El Coyote they offer more than just the standard one sided menu of Mexican fare. I dont understand where the reviews of the food being so-so come from.I have eaten in a lot of Mexican restaurants and... More
Love.. love.. love El Coyote. It served me well when i first moved to L.A. and was flat broke. The food is good. Not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten but pretty decent and the portion sizes are huge. The decor is super Mexican/Spanish cheesy-goodness. You feel like you're in a velvet painting. This was my husbands first time... More
