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.
I live in Corona and this place is in La. I've been here at least 6 times since my brother brought me here. The food is great and the people that work here are friendly. The only thing is that the service even though they are friendly they are slow, and they allowed people to come in who aren't customers and ask you for money or they go in there trying to sell boot legged movies. A restaurant should not allowed that kind of stuff. I want to go in there and enjoy my food and not be asked if I have money to give them or if I want to buy a boot legged movie. Even though I don't like that, I will still come here when I get a chance because of their food.
Had a conference meeting in MDR, and someone told us about Benny's Tacos and Chicken Rotisserie. We thought we give it a try, since they have 4 stars on Yelp. I must tell you the hand made corn and flour tortillas were a hit. We ordered : carne asada tacos, shrimp tacos, delicious with chipotte sauce, and fish tacos. My partners had the Rotisserie chicken with garlic sauce on the side, and incredible , juicy chicken. We love it, must try it. Great prices too. We also hired them for our office catering event. We received 20 % off. Dr. Guiv
Best authentic Mexican food in the heart of East Side. Everything is home made just like your Abuilitas. A landmark in the heart of Boyle Height. You know the food is good when people wait in line, to enter a hole in the wall family run restaurant for over 35 years. Ask around nothing compares to the avacado salsa, the flautas and the women who have all been there for at least 25 years. Don't take my word for it the food speaks for itself
My family and I have been eating yees since we moved into this area in the 60"s..there is NO other restaurant that I can say matches these meals..I live outside of l.a.@ 1 hour,I still have friends in the area..BEST believe when I go visit them I WILL be stopping in to yees for my "pok fi ri"...this place hwre was many successful Saturday n Sunday meals when mom didn't want to cook..it has always been delicious and stays hot.♡♡♡♡♡
I love this place it is awesome. I always go there when I can. The ambiance is hot and the food is great. I highly recommend this restaurant The one at the block is more low key but the one in Hollywood is the best and so much to do after you finish eating. ITS GREAT!!! The wait is never long even on weekends, however if I want a table I always use opentable.com to make my reservations.
the food here is definitely suited for american taste. it doesnt taste bad, but its definitely not mexican. the carne plates are good but need more kick. everything just needs more kick. hey but some people are into bland food, so by all means go ahead if you like it. I/ giving 4 stars for the good service tho. better service than other "mex" restaurants.
This place is dangerously too close to my house. Seriously - it's less than a five minute walk to cupcake heaven. All of their treats are amazing - not just the cupcakes. They also make delicious ice cream plus other baked goods such as cookies and scones. I love their savory chive and spinach scones which are perfect with Sunday morning coffee.
