We thought the waitress was never to come for our order.... then we figured it must be free when she did not bring a bill. Everything in between was quite tasteless. The waitress never returned to check on us. The restaurant was only about 25% occupied, so hard to guess what the problem was.

My food here is always very good. I love the Rio Grande burrito with refried beans, hamburger, and pork. Love their chips and salsa. Their cheese with spinach dip is really good too. Our waitress always keeps bringing us fresh chips and salsa.

Abysmal service backed by incompetent management, best to take your money elsewhere. Took over 10 minutes just to get our drinks, and another 10 before our waitress finally bothered to come back after telling her we'd like to get some appetizers. 15 minutes later, full of chips and starting to get frustrated, we ask the waitress where our apps were...

My husband and I loved Kokopelli when we lived in KC, and we still love to return when we come back for the holidays. Our large group of about 17 ate here the night before Thanksgiving. The staff took great care of us. We had a long table for our group, and the waitress was patient while our group arrived... More

The four stars here are for the sour cream sauce on these enchiladas! Chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce. They truly are delicious, and the sauce is hard to beat. Service is consistently great, and the restaurant is clean and well put together. Chips and salsa are good, but not the best in town. If you are looking for good... More

I visit this place at least once a week. They have great daily specials and the rest of the menu is delicious and reasonably priced. You get free chips and salsa while you wait for your food...which does not take long thanks to the great servers! Please support your local businesses like Kokopelli!

Nice environment and good service. Fajitas were very good - chicken and shrimp tasted fresh and well cooked - not dried out or over-spiced. Service was fast and efficient. Will certainly return here for a meal.

We went to Kokopelli's last Sunday afternoon. Got there at 1 Pm and thought they were closed. We were the only car in the lot. Got prompt service. Nothing out of the ordinary but worth the trip. Like most Mexican restaurants you will never go away hungry

We have eaten here twice now, and both experiences were great. The food is fairly typical mexican, but executed pretty well. I loved the Angel Fire (spinach and pepperjack cheese enchiladas), and I ordered with chicken. Nice kick and great flavor. Good beans and rice, too, and I am not a rice fan. Oh, and the sopapillas are yummy! Very... More

They couldn't serve drinks tonight because they didn't renew liquor license on time. the food was just okay. I had a problem with the bill but manager was not helpful. Now i know why they are always putting out groupons to try to get customers to come in this poorly run restaurant. My family will not be going back.
