Party of four arrived around 7:30 pm without reservation, although the restaurant was crowded we were seated right away. Wide selection on the menu. We each had something different and all was good. The decor is reminiscent of "old" Mexican restaurants, colorful with lots to look at. There is a great collection of old toys in the entry area that... More

Great Mexican food, stunning margaritas (go for the rocks on the side you'll get more!) I have spent many a night here, it is a great locale for parties. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

I wanted to visit this place since I had heard of it for a long time. Lots of famous people have dined here including Manson victims, Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring and her friends on the night of their murders. I had the #1 combo (cheese enchilada and beef taco with rice and beans) since it was the most popular according... More

We had dinner in this old known restaurant. Food was amazing and the portions were big. The margaritas are powerful. And the price really affordable 8 people for almost 200$. Worth a visit.

Went to El Coyote last night and was glad to see that it is still the friendly fun place I remembered. I had my Combination 2 which is the Chile Relleno and Chicken Enchilada. We also had Cadillac Margaritas that were really good and plenty strong! My friend had fajitas which can be better elsewhere but they came with some... More

So I was really excited to go here. It is afterall a legendary Hollywood restaurant. It was good but I think I honestly expected more. The margaritas were good, but nothing special. I had the fajitias which again were good but nothing extraordinary. Not somewhere I would put at the top of my list but still good.

This Los Angeles Classic serves traditional Mexican food with old world flair. The costumed waitresses, the vintage decor and the classic dishes combine to give this the air of authenticity you look for in LA's fast-paced whirlwind lifestyle. A safe haven that's always entertaining and delightful.

There is always a line up to get in. Hard to find parking in the area, but they do provide valet. We waited lesss than 15 min on a Sunday night. We were seated and served within 15 minutes. Waiter was pleasant and had no problem allowing us to make a few substitutes. I had the taco salad and asked... More

My boyfriend and I went here last night on a friend's recommendation! We were glad we are here. We ordered the sampler, the quesadilla and the poppers were delicious! We ordered a casaer salad, that was just ok, nothing special. I ordered ground beef tacos and those were so tasty. He ordered the shrimp street tacos, which he enjoyed. The... More
