El Coyote Loko - Tex-Mex Restaurant in Livonia

      Nine dollars for two - less than mediocre tacos, decent rice and beans and a bottle of water.  I read the reviews and saw "authentic" so, knowing what "authentic" Mexican is, decided to give it a try. The tacos were in a deep fried corn tortilla - crunchy to a point of almost over cooked. I really just like a soft corn tortilla so this was the first disapointment since there was nothing to indicate this style of taco. Okay cool, I thought no biggie, let's dig in and see what this baby's got. That was when the real let down happened - ground beef - and not high end ground beef - more like a pink slim, taco bell ground beef.

    If you are new to this place, as they seem to have a following, ask questions before placing your order. I clearly missed something and messed my own up. I see pictures that resemble authentic, but I think they defaulted me to what I know as "American style". Oh well, the search continues for better Mexican food. The have concluded good Mexican food in this area is as elusive as big foot.

      El Coyote Loco has been our family fav for authentic Mexican cuisine for well over 8 years. The 2 brothers who run the restaurant are lovely people. Try the Coyotitos & Mexican tacos. Don't drive to Mexicantown when you can get a taste of that right here in our own burb!

      Mexican food. Real, authentic Mexican food.

    This is what perfection looks like people ! The best Mexican food around. Fresh ingredients, just about everything is made in house and bought locally. Beautiful stewed beef, chicken that is separated by hand, and angus asada.

    They do have a few tables for dining in.

    Wet beef burrito is my go to menu item, with beans and rice.

    The rice is the bomb. It has a few carrots and peas which is a nice addition.

    Salsa is great, fresh.

      We tried El Coyote Loko for the first time for lunch today. Their Beef Wet Burito was delicious. The meat was stewed and very tender and flavorful. The guacamole and salsa were both clearly made from scratch and not bought prepared. Co-workers had the Carne Asada lunch special and said it was delicious as well. Everything was well worth the price. We will definitely be back!
