Each visit to El Paso we always eat at Kiki's. The food is the single best flavor I have found in El Paso. A must try is the Chili Conqueso and the Chili Colorado. There is a picture on the wall signed by Joe Perry of Aerosmith that says ..."the best Mole' on the planet"

I have been here a few times, and my last visit was just as great as the first. The restaurant is a nice quant restaurant nestled in Central El Paso. The menu has a variety of authentic Mexican cuisine, but I highly recommend the crab enchiladas. Do find your way to this part of town and to this fine dining... More

Went here on Saturday night with 14 people. We chose kiki's from recommendation of a friend & the fact that the food channel had been there. The consensus was the people were great but the food was average. Having said that most of us LOVED the chile con queso which was mainly green chile w cheese. It was really good.... More

I've eaten many places over the years, some better than others.. Kiki's literally transformed my thinking of Mexican food. Really don't believe I've eaten anywhere else with food this authentic & delicious. Had a sample plate with green chili chicken enchilada, flauta, taco & chili Relleno . The enchilada ruled, but the flauta & taco were close seconds. Too full... More

The first time I ate here it was excellent. Returned a few weeks ago & the food was average. Kind of a disappointment. Maybe it was just an off day. All the other reviews seem to disagree with me, It was good food just not outstanding. I'll try again at a later time.

Anytime you see that the Food Network features a restaurant on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" you know it is going to be excellent. On that recommendation, of coarse we had to order the machacas. My husband had the pork, and I had the chicken. They were so amazingly good. Lovely family restaurant atmosphere with great service. This restaurant... More

Great Mexican food can be found here. Having grown up in El Paso but moved away, I crave it each time back. I always get a combination plate just so I can try a lot of different things and check the box. Try the machaca too.

I used to eat here at least twice every week when I lived in El Paso, Texas. Now, Kiki's and the servers there are the only things in El Paso that I miss. There are several restaurants in El Paso which serve truly great mexican food. In my opinion, Kiki's is the best of a distinguished group. I obtained a... More

Had some out of town guests come visit and we heard a lot about KiKi's so I thought a sure bet. Went on a Friday night... Bad idea! The wait was really long and we chose to wait anyway. Think the front desk forgot about us and sat 5 of us in a booth. Another bad idea. They added a... More
