Pretty good! It has parking lot and pretty average food, but we only went because we saw a good rating. It could have been better though.

Restaurant was busy and we had 5 people so they first sat us in two booths so we didn't have to continue waiting for a table. Once a table was open, they moved us to it. The food was good. The margaritas are delicious. The...entire staff were friendly and helpful.More

They are racist, they don't care for whites, they gave my seat to a Mexican couple a table for two in which it was infact my table, kept getting the runaround, I guess I wasn't brown enough, the sad part is that I am Spanish...just light colored, I look like a gringo, amazing!, I will never go back there, they are racist, they cater to the brown only........neverMore

We’ve ate here multiply times. In my opinion, this is the best Mexican food in EL PASO. We have tried many others here but honestly all the Mexican food places have a different variety and taste. L & J’s is good as well! Kiki’s has...the best Chile Relleno’s and Salsa. Just wish they would give you more chips and salsa. Kiki’s is our favorite place to go! We will be backMore

After landing in ELP we went to Kiki's and it was wonderful. The service was professional and very attentive. I had the number 2 with 2 enchiladas, chile relleno, and taco and it hit the spot . Red sauce was savory. We will return for...sure!More

I was disappointed after reading all the reviews. I expected som really good food. I have eaten at several other El Paso restaurants that were far better than this.

I didn't know what to expect but after working 15-20 years in the restaurant industry I get what's going on at my table & behind the service. The service was straight forward. They got the job done & It was very busy for a random...weeknight. My food was fresh & ready fast so they experienced in that kitchen. The chips & salsa were top notch, too good actually because I devoured it. I like my salsa on the spicy side & I don't really care how you like yours. lol. Of course I got the machaca & it really was one of the best meals in my life. I'm salivating just thinking about it. Will you feel about this meal the way I do? Eh, I don't care, some of you can never be please but I'm telling you, this is what I would want for my last meal so I can leave this earth with a smile on my face & a heart full of gratitude for the chefs that can take something simple & make it magical. Cheers!More

After reading the reviews I was excited to try Kiki’s while we were visiting El Paso. The place was busy and we were told there would be a 20 minute wait and we could wait at the bar, which would be fine. Apparently, the bar...wasn’t for serving drinks and just a place to pile up dirty glasses (and there were a lot), there wasn’t even a bartender. Staff just keeping running behind the bar and getting their own drinks. We were seated sooner, which was great and ordered right away. They brought my beer but not my husband’s margarita. They served the food and still no drink. He asked 3 times before they finally brought it. We were 3/4 done with the meal before he got his margarita. When it was brought it was very watered down. Thankfully, the gentlemen that brought it realized it had probably been sitting the entire time. He brought another one right way. Which is the only reason I am not giving just a single star rating. The food was fine but nothing special. We will not return there.More
