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.

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

We found this place by googling. Said it is one of the best in EP and it was featured in Food Network. We had Beef Machaca and Colorado Chili. Came with rice and beans. The beef Machaca is shredded grilled skirt steak on a fried egg in a white sauce. The sauce is very tasty but the steak is on... More

The food was average and located in a residential area of old El Paso. The machaca was recommended by Aaron Sanchez or the Foodnetwork. It was good, but there is better in El Paso.

I have been visiting Kiki's since September 2001. We have family here in El Paso and we always eat at Kiki's when we come to El Paso for a visit. I love the service, the food and the atmosphere. Staff is always nice and helpful. It's always crowded; which should tell you what a great place this is. Great job... More

All time favorite place to eat in El Paso, been coming over 20 years now. This place does have a bar, the food is excellent and it's located central El Paso close to Fort Bliss and down the street is a great tamale and sweet bread shop. History is planted here. Staff is kind.
