The food was very hot when it came out. They immediately greeted us when we walked in. The staff was very friendly & checked on us constantly. The food was very good. It had been a very long time since I had been there & it was nice to return.

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go to. It is by far our favorite Mexican restaurant in town. It is better than the other restaurants we've been too. It might not have the bells and whistles the other restaurants has but the food is way better here at affordable prices. It gets full every... More

Hispanic Magazine named Kikis one of the nation's 50 Best Hispanic Restaurants in early 2000. It still is one of the best restaurants. The food is tasty and the prices are affordable. Kiki's has restaurant services as well as Take Out.

It's now our favorite Mexican restaurant! It's the second time we went to the restaurant the first time was 2 years ago, it was really busy, but it was a great service and really good food, now this time it wasn't that busy but the food and service it's still really good!

Do I need to say more? The food is Outstanding! We went post-lunch and it was near full. I understand you need to be there early forlunch. I had chicken enchiladas. If you like off-the-charts spicy you will want to request it. The red sauce is delicious! But if you like your food to bite back just tell them. I... More

7 of us went last night, don't know what the rave is about at Kiki's. Service was bad, I ordered onions for my enchiladas that was included, I asked the manager for some and he brought me some. . Had to ask for chips and drinks several times. I asked the manager for chips since our waitress was to slow.... More

I eat here regularly. Although, I have and continue to try other places that my friends tout as the best authentic Mexican cuisine, the others always come up short in my book. This place has it on flavor, hands down. I also like the friendly neighborhood atmosphere, the friendly, and courteous staff. I admit, sometimes there is a bit of... More

Visiting El Paso with husband his family wanted us to try Kiki's. So glad we did!! Definitely the best enchiladas I've ever eaten! Loved the spicy red sauce!! French fries with chili con queso were also very good and not a typical menu item, but I prefer queso with chips. Very small, casual atmosphere, nothing fancy, but food was great.

Great little bar and restaurant off the beaten path in the old part of town. The building is 100 years old. Interesting neighborhood where everyone is friendly and accommodating. Their Machaca was featured on Food Network and is some of the best in the city. Purposely dated to give patrons that old El Paso city feel. Limited parking in the... More
