7312 Beverly Blvd.
On March 5, 1931, Blanche March and her husband, George, opened the doors of El Coyote for the very first time. The original location was a tiny spot on First Street and La Brea in Los Angeles, CA. Today's location at 7312 Beverly Boulevard has become a regular for many locals and a must-see for visitors.
There’s a feeling of history the minute you walk in. Autographed photographs of Hollywood stars line one wall just inside the entrance. John Wayne, Loretta Young and Ricardo Montalban ate there. A young Drew Barrymore spent many an evening tearing around the restaurant while family members dined. And one day even royalty came calling when Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco walked in unannounced.
The colorful outfits of the servers have become as famous as their margaritas. I started going to El Coyote while I was still in high school in 1969 and it's still the place I bring out of town visitors to see the old L.A.
