El Coyote probably doesn't have the best Mexican food in Los Angeles, but the atmosphere is very fun, the drink are generous, the menu is extensive and when all mixed together it's one of my favorite places in Los Angeles - especially if going out with a big group looking for a casual fun time.

We enjoyed our take out dinner from El Coyote - very fast turn around from ordering to food being brought out - good selection of the 'standard' sort of Mexican fare and big portion sizes. Price for 2 entrees was just under $15 each - good value for a satisfying meal!

Every time I visit LA, I have to stop in at El Coyote. Great selection of food, yummy margaritas and packed with eclectic charm! The food is tasty, with many traditional options. A wonderful group of musicians wander and serenade the patrons. Good value; valet parking makes this spot very convenient in a parking-challenged area. It is a fun and... More

The food was very good. It was not the best Mexican food I have ever had, but it was very appetizing. The margaritas are wonderful.

Anyone who visits Los Angeles must, at some point or another, have dinner at El Coyote. This 1930s establishment is not fancy, not expensive, not sophisticated, however, is one of my favorite restaurants of all time. It's not just that late actress Sharon Tate had her last dinner her before being butchered to death that same night. That's just one... More

El Coyote does not need more reviews and I can't add anything that hasn't been said, but this is probably my favorite restaurant in the world and if I were on death row my final request would be for the guacamole dinner with taco, enchilada, chile relleno, rice and beans, with albondigas soup from El Coyote. Plus a green corn... More

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.

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 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
