Good food

The food was good except for mine. I had chicken mole and it tasted like dried out crock pot bbq chicken. Didn't taste like a mole at all. The other people I was with liked their food a lot. So maybe just avoid that one dish. I'm going to try it again and order something different. The service was... read more

This restaurant was suggested to us by a local. She mentioned the Margaritas are excellent and she was right! The restaurant is in an old building off the beaten path, which just adds to its charm. The salsa is good but be sure to have something to drink close by! I would recommend the carne asada, but caution you the... More

I won't lie, the foodie in me lured us to visit the historical restaurant. I read an article online that Food Network recommended this place. I requested the Kiki's burger that was loaded with cheese and green Chile. It was a good burger, not anything amazing and something that I felt was Food Network worthy. If we return I will... More

When I went in to the restaurant, it looked like a hole in the wall and very unclean. I ignored the atmosphere thinking the food would be out of this world as I have heard from other people. I wanted something small and light so I asked the waitress some questions about what was on the menu and she came... More

You could easily drive by this place without a second look. It's very discrete. Once you walk in, though, you find it's usually packed with locals and tourists alike. The service was prompt and attentive (even though it had snowed the day before and they were short staffed). The food though ... oh my! The Queso is quite possibly the... More

This is a hidden gem. If you are going to Kiki's you must try their chile con queso fries. They have a genuine home made flavor. I usually have their chile con queso steak too. The prices are very reasonable. Enjoy!

The brisket machaca is AMAZING! Best thing I've ever eaten in El Paso. 😎😋🍹🍻 warning.. It's spicy!!! Chips are not the best but the guacamole was pretty good.

This is a well known restaurant, and there were many patrons there when I visited. I chose the house special recommended by the waiter for "what we are famous for", a sort of mixture of something, something and something. I am sure it's because I don't normally eat Mexican food, although I do normally like it, but this did not... More
