Went with friends and family. Very attentive waiter, excellent food (both taste and portion size!), and a great atmosphere. Would recommend!

The old school decor makes it feel as authentic as it is. The fajita's were plentiful and delicious! Our waitress was efficient and friendly. And we had a fun time drinking the margarita's!

Being from Texas we were craving Mexican food .... a friend recommended this place & hands down I approve. Another great recommendation was Don Cucos. We didn't have a chance to try it but if it's in your area it was highly recommended as well.

Wonderful service and great good. What else can you ask for. Large, no huge portions. We had chicken burrito s, great. Enough for 2-3 people.

Incredible authentic atmosphere with plenty of seating space. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The menu has a great variety of Mexican food. When it came to the actual food, it was poorly presented, greasy and cheap-looking and tasted basic. Could improve on that to make it 5 star!

This place totally reminds me of the Mexican restaurant in Denver (Senor Pepe's) that my family always went to back in the 1970s when I was a kid. Time has hardly touched El Coyote, except for the fact that they actually have tamales without meat (green corn tamales), which are hard to find even today. Retro Mexican food is the... More

Authentic Mexican place to eat with a great ambiance and very friendly staff. Worth a visit if you are around. Valet parking for a couple of bucks.

This restaurant has been operating in LA since 1931. The food is good traditional Mexican that is reasonably priced. The decor is kitschy and quirky Mexican and has changed little in twenty five years. The service is good. The Margaritas from scratch are excellent.

This style of Mexican restaurant has mostly disappeared in LA in favor of more groovy names and exotic styles. This place screams "comfort food" and it is available in every line item on the menu. Everything is good and made to order. The guacamole is fresh and well spiced, and the margaritas are great. You see date nights, families, children's... More
