We live in Columbus, Ohio and have eaten at Kikos for probably 25 years with our families that live in Corpus Christi. This is also all their favorite restaurant. Can't think of one thing that has ever been negative. Had at least 12 different things on the menu and they were absolutely everything you could expect. If you go there,... More

This is our second and last visit. The hostesses do not greet, but ask, "How many?" The chips tasted like the bag had been left open for a week. We asked for replacements and they were just as bad. This was a foretelling of the food to come. I had the Mahito Tacos. The mahi mahi tasted like cardboard. Ana,... More

Our apologies for the letdown, Burton. I wish we'd shown you both warm service and a fantastic meal, so it's a shame that we were only able to deliver one of those. Thanks for speaking up and letting me know how it could have been better. All the best, Marcus Owner More

Food here is the BEST! Although my wife does not really like it because they use American cheese and not cheddar as she is VERY picky on the cheese being used on her food. But she does come along as I love this place! The Margaritas are only $1 during happy hour EVERYDAY! I think its from 5pm-7pm so well... More

This review is the best! Thanks for the kind words about our food and happy hour. Sorry to hear that your wife has been disappointed with the cheese options, though -- we'll definitely keep that feedback in mind, moving forward. Hope to see you both back at our place again soon!

So many people say Kiko's is their favorite place for Mexican food, but our last meal there was disappointing. The only good thing I can say about the experience is that the food was plentiful; however, it was not good. Our meals arrived stone cold. We had to send them back to be warmed up. The enchiladas were greasy and... More

Everything about this review is incredibly disheartening -- you're absolutely right that your service should have been friendly and welcoming, and your food certainly should have arrived hot. Please rest assured that this is not at all the norm for us. It sounds like you caught us on an off day, and I'm so sorry that this happened. I'd appreciate... More

This place...is just...always amazing. My family started going back when my siblings and I were children and this restaurant has not changed in quality or taste. ALWAYS a good choice for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and all other choices. Please visit!

Kiko's offers true Tex-Mex in abundant portions for an excellent price. The sheer size of the restaurant is proof of the crowd it draws as it is huge with many different serving rooms and it stays busy. The food is fresh, served piping hot by smiling wait staff who refresh your drinks frequently. Try the guacamole. It is the best... More

This is one of my favorite Mexican Food restaurants! Reasonably priced and breast food. The only problem is often you have to wait over 30 minutes to be seated.
