Hands down this is the best Mexican food. Tacos and tamales are delicious if you can get them before they sell out. Great customer service

The staff is very rude and the food is sub par. The restaurant itself looks very nasty, I can only imagine how the kitchen must look.

I have eaten tacos at a wide variety of places around Chicagoland. For my money, my favorite taco is el coyote's steack taco, on corn, with extra cheese (always ask for extra cheese). It's not fancy, but who needs a gussied up taco? What it is simple ingredients, made well, and it is absolutely delicious.

I've been to just about every Mexican joint in the greater Chicagoland area, and this place is just OK. The flavors could use a little more "pop" on the tongue, just kinda bland. Taco Burrito King right down the street has it ALL OVER this place. Go to TKB, you'll think me for it.

My kids like this place since we howl like coyotes when we get there. It average Mexican fare. Average prices. The owner seems to be nice. We enjoy it because our kids do. They have a salsa bar and that is cool.
