CLOSED ON SUNDAYS & AFTER 9 P.M. on MON-SAT!!! I just had to make sure you all got that 'cos I've gone like 2xs - once at 9:30 p.m. on a Saturday night & once around noon on a Sunday day. I was so annoyed at myself for not calling first to check their hours. Still as good as it gets for chic hwe naeng myun (that black noodle) with spicy raw fish. They serve it with a side of icy broth from the regular mool naeng myun. And of course we can't forget the King Kimchi Dumplings (kimchi wang mandoo)! I can barely hold it up in my chopsticks to dip it into my soy sauce+vinegar concoction...then barely make it to the plate to take a bite. It's ridiculously gianormous! They have a warm meaty broth that we self-served ourselves after the meal near the ice water pitcher by the cashier - yummy goodness! Something about having naeng myun on a hot day is like people who want watermelon or an icy cold beer on a front porch during a nice summer day ...something about the heat brings out the craving for naeng myun for me. Wait...it's November...eh, it was over 90 degrees in SoCal this past week. That's winter weather for you in SoCal! They used to have 2 other locations but both of them disappeared. I always like this location on Serrano & Olympic better than the other 2 any way. One thing to note, the parking lot in front in the evenings becomes valet only - complimentary - tip only - but it's still valet.

I have been going to this place since it opened back in 1981...One of my good friends parents used to own a business right next door, so I used to go there all the time. It was tiny back then but they have grown into a nice restaurant. I did not even speak English back then but I knew how to say Chicken salad please... Anyway, it's been 27 years and nothing has changed. They still have great Chicken salad and I still can't speak English... Anyway, I had all the different Chinese chicken salads around town and this place is still the best. My wife and I buy the dressing from Costco and make our own chicken salad at home. But, at least once a month I really do need that fix... also, the same gentleman who served me my first chicken salad still works there.. I love that...If you have not been to this place, it is worth a drive to the West LA to check out Feast from the East.
If you came here for the food then you have been misinformed. The food is mexican style and thats about all you can say. If you think the food here is good then you have already tried one of their margaritas. This brings me to the real reason you come to El Coyote, the margaritas, more specifically the Ultimate Margarita. Priced at around $7 it tastes great and they don't skimp on the tequila! This is a great place to stop by before hitting the town. Service is about par for Hollywood and the service has been around about as long as the building itself. The restaurant is large and can handle large parties. You will drive to where ever you are going as it is not really close to anything. If you come in the evening there will be a wait. Highly recommend this place for a good time in Hollywood.
