      I know it's not politically correct but...
      I have been going to El Coyote for cheap margaritas and that delicious meatball soup for years. The decor is so trashy and fun and those outfits on the waitresses are just so funny, all poofy and multicolored. Last time I was there I saw Whoopi Goldberg so it's a fun haunt for celebrity hunters. While I am angry with them for the Prop8 stuff, I still enjoy going there. Just not as often anymore. That is also why they only got three stars!

      Stabs you in the back
      The owner smiles and says she wants gay dollars but stabs us in the back by giving those same dollars to anti-gay causes.

      Rude waiters
      I will never go back. Service took forever and the waitress was rude. If the food was ok I would have been fine, but it was just average.

      Bad Food and Anti Gay
      Mormon run. Some of the money goes to fund Anti Gay hate groups. El Coyote is the pitts

      This place is anti-gay!!!!!!
      The owner of this restaurant recently donated to the Yes on 8 campaign to deny gay couples the right to marry. Despite the fact that the place has made $$ off its significant gay patrons for years. The food has never been good (tastes like frozen patio dinners). The atmosphere is what ppl went for. This will be lacking too once marjorie halversson's role FOR Prop 8 gets out in west hollywood gay circles.

      This food is mediocre, drinks are weak in a blah setting! For a city only a few hours from the actual border of Mexico- there are far better places to try for Mexican food.

      Absolute fun place
      Probably our favorite Mexican Restaraunt ever. The food is good with a great price. We've had several Birthday celebrations here because we knew our guests would love the place. The staff are wonderful. El Cotote is a haven for the well known and the not so well known. Its trendy while having that down home feel.
