This place has been around even when I was a kid and I'm not surprised. I would put their guacamole through an IV if I could!
Old – its is really old. Located in middle of city which is nice. Service is about as old as the place, Mexican food. Nothing special. Drinks are nice, but all drinks are nice right?
Cheap but very good Mexican Food – You can't beat this restaurant. Inexpensive yet very cool atmosphere and good food. Their salsa is the best in the city and I could eat it by the gallon. Although I don't drink, my friend at 3 margarita's which they are known for. All in all, a great value for your dollar.
Cool sign, not so cool food – Maybe the drinks are good. Consider this comment on the meal I had recently. It's typical LA over-pricing, but without good food. I really believe it was some kind of processed cheese that was layered over my very wimpy enchilada... Yes, one enchilada. They sell them in singles, for as much as they sell 3 (plus rice and beans) in normal mexican food joints. Want a local-scale sign the economy spiraled out of control in the last 10 years? Our restaurants are pretty weighty on the tab sometimes. Sometimes, unfortunately, with little return. Maybe I'm a penny-pincher, but it seems this restaurant, which does indeed have some decorative charm, clearly is here for the upper classes, as even in these down times, it seems to draw a crowd who will pay the price.
Great for food and drinks! – El Coyote is hot hot hot!!! I love this Mexican restaurant and I keep going back over and over again! Their frozen margaritas are fabulous and so are the tequila shots! I love the food as well and will continue to keep going back!
The County needs to fine this place – I was very sick after I ate here. The tacos were cold and the tortilla chips were stale. I saw the waitress take salsa off of a table after the ppl had already left and place it on somebody else's table for consumption. Can they do that? I'm sorry that I ate here. I had diarrhea for the rest of the night. The margaritas were very acidic and didn't help my stomach and I was very hungover the next day. I will NEVER eat here again. The restroom was also very dirty.
the food tasted like frozen food from the grocery store – I was disappointed by the tastelessness of the food, like eating a rubber shoe. the margaritas were watered down and not very strong. I'm sure that there are better places to eat than this in LA.
Canned Beans and Neon Cheese – Always filled with a busy and lively crowd, El Coyote provides kitch Mexican food at its best. The decor is campy and festive, with prompt and attentive service by waitresses dressed in Mexican garb. The food, which includes the usual tacos, burritos and enchiladas, isn't the actual draw to this L.A. staple, but it's their famous, and STRONG, margaritas. Bring down a group of friends on a Sunday afternoon, sit on the patio, and enjoy a really fun meal, with a margarita, or two, or three, or...
My Favorite Hollywood Hangout – I have been going here for 22 years. The perfect atmosphere with the perfect "stick to your ribs" Mexican food. The service is amazing here and many have been working here much longer than I have been going. Have a designated driver if you have more than two of their margaritas! I always take out of town guests for the perfect melting pot experience that is Hollywood.
Just order the carnitas and scratch margarita – Stick to the basics, crunchy chicken tacos, margaritas, carnitas. Occasionally the tostada works too.
