Been here numerous types and each time it's about average food and service, only Mexican place near Newtown besides the itty bitty Mexicali rose restaurant. We recommend the churasco steak. Last time we came the service was not good, a young girl messed up our order twice. First with the appetizer and again with our meals. The place was dead... More

We hadn't eaten here, so with a coupon in hand, went to try it out. Atmosphere is OK, service was fine, and the quality of our food was just average. That's not necessarily bad, however, it wasn't good enough to plan to visit more.

El Coyote is a very solid Mexican restaurant with an attentive staff, table side guacamole, good drinks and endless chips & salsa, as if you need that. We've tried a variety of dishes over many visits, the enchiladas, fajitas and taco platters are all great, the snapper and other fish dishes are a very nice treat and the other traditional... More

When you have that craving for amazing food, friendly service, and a nice relaxing atmosphere, El Coyote is the place. This is possibly Brookfield's finest. Staring with addicting salsa and chips, table side guacamole, delicious drinks and family special entrees, you won't go anywhere else. Don't be fooled by the other impersonators, this is the real deal for the full... More

Great freshly prepared, mexican fare -- excellent flavors and the BEST guacamole made fresh at your table! Top notch, attentive wait staff and very reasonable prices. Oh, and the sangria and margaritas are outstanding! By fare the BEST mexican food in Brookfield!

Real pieces of steak and chicken in fajitas. Excellent flavors, even the rice and beans are special. There are several Mexican restaurants in town. GO to this one.

Nice food for the price. Sangria is the best in the area!!! Service is always great. Wish it wasn't in a strip mall and had more of a cozy feeling.

My wife and recently ate at El Coyote, everything was good, the staff was attentive and the food was enjoyable, but we practically had the entire place to ourselves. Brookfield now has three Mexican restaurants within 1/2 mile of each other, two of which offer table service with a wait staff. Having in eaten at both establishments recently, there are... More

Not great at all there are so many Mexican restaurants. We think the burritos were frozen and microwaved I work in a school lunch room so I know frozen food trust me. I would not return ever sorry but it's the truth
