While visiting El Paso we went here for dinner because Aaron Sanchez from the Food Network raved about their Brisket Machaca. He was right, my husband really enjoyed his. I had the #2 combination with 2 Enchiladas, a Taco, and a Chile Relleno and it had the best Mexican rice and beans I've ever had. I didn't think there could... More

Kiki's has been an El Paso secret for decades not because it isn't well know, but because those who know the place tend to keep it a secret. It's kind of like having that special little place that you can get away with wearing casual and running into locals. You have to remember that El Paso has outstanding Mexican food... More

One of our favorite stops in El Paso. Always have to have the brisket manchaca. Got there early and were quickly seated. Service was a bit slow but acceptable. Food was great. If you do not get there early, the wait can be quite long but if you have the time it is worth it.

Kiki's Restaurant has been an El Paso institution since the mid 1970's. While the food is very good the noise factor during your dining event is almost maddening. The service for the most part is above average even though the staff is so busy they almost come accross as being snippy. Try anything with their famous green sauce.

I have always said that El Paso is the Mexican Food capital of the US; only San Diego or maybe Laredo could dispute that, and San Antonio is hundreds of miles from the Mexican border, so they don't qualify. I have been a patron of Kiki's for more about 40 years, and the food is always excellent. Kiki's is a... More

Nice friendly atmosphere, a little busy. Wait staff were very nice but our orders took way too long for the simple items we ordered. The cook was just slow! The food was decent but lacked some flavor to it! The food is also a little pricey! They also messed up on my order but in all fairness compensated for it... More

We were staying in El Paso the day before our flight home... and saw that Kiki's was a highly recommended neighborhood Mexican restaurant. We got there about 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon... and the parking lot was packed... and were welcomed by folks standing in line for a table. We gave our name and moved to the bar... where the... More

This place was recommended to me by one of my co-workers. The place is nothing fancy, in fact it looks like the place has not changed it's look in years. We were on the bar side at a booth looking at all the autographed pictures on the wall. It is apparent that this is a local favorite, for the place... More

I have been eating at Kiki's as long as they have been in business. I have traveled throughout the US and Mexico without finding better food! When friends as well as business associates travel to El Paso I bring them here and receive continued thanks! It is locally owned with the owner on site. They have had the same cooks... More
