Nice environment and great service. The Machaca is a great dish and it is definitely one that will surprise your taste buds with authentic flavor. The staff is always pleasant and ready to make your visit excellent.

Kiki's is one of those "must try at least once" places in El Paso. I am extremely fond of their Machacha, cheesy with loads of flavor, which is one of their specialties. They have lunch specials Mon-Fri so get there early because this place is always busy!

Enjoyed my first visit to Kiki's and the first time I've had Brisket Machaca. A friendly staff and obviously a local favorite from everyone getting up and shaking hands as people come and go. Was featured on Triple D and is a great local "dive".

I was down in El Paso for business and saw this place on the Food Network channel. It's a no-frills place that offers huge portions of good Mexican food. The service could've been better. Our waitress forgot to bring the tortilla shells to our table after serving us our plates. Overall, a good experience. Not sure if it's the bestMexican... More

We are from Southern, CA and spent the weekend visiting our daughter at NMSU. We googled Mexican restaurants and once we saw how highly rated they were decided to give them try. Kiki's is definitely a local hang out, but we were treated very warmly., Excellent service! And the food is great, with really good portions and prices.

The food was terrible and not what I ordered. The customer service was just as bad. The waitress acted like it was my fault. Very little parking This place is not worth the effort!

After a 15 year absence, I FINALLY made it back to Kiki's restaurant in El Paso,TX. I truly believe it is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the country. I can say that because I have traveled the country quite a bit. Tacos, enchiladas, beans, rice, lots of cheese and salsa. You just cant go wrong at Kiki's.

We found Kiki's with a quick search for El Paso restaurants. I was traveling from LA to Nashville with an appointment in Austin, TX so we used El Paso as a pit stop. Traveling with my in-laws, it can be tough to find a place to eat that meets their ideals. Kiki's did it to the 9's! They were a... More

I've ate here at Kiki's for years. The first place I ever tried Green Crab Enchiladas, it used to be my favorite until I tried the #1 mexican plate, since then it's go to plate. I've had the Machaca which they are famous for and it's good but I'm not a big fan, I personally prefer the Huevos Rancheros. So... More
