Miss this place

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'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

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

Kiki's is a great little Mexican restaurant that definitely gives you your money's worth. My wife I and like to hit Kiki's for lunch when we are in El Paso. The food is authentic and they have a varied menu, from burritos and tacos to mole and green crab enchiladas. Even the complimentary chips and salsa are a cut above.... More

I have been here twice in the last couple years. I have always enjoyed the food, and is a must stop when i travel to El Paso. It is a small, and intimate old El Paso location and I like the atmosphere. The chips and salsa were fresh and plentiful. The service on my recent trip was a little slow... More
