Great restaurant that can get extremely packed. I have ordered almost everything on the menu. Sometimes I go American for breakfast and order their huge bowl of oatmeal. Great food.

“Great food”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Lots of choices. The food was very good. The rice is outstanding. Not what you normally get at Mexican restaurants. A blend of seasons made it quite different and delicious. All our meals were excellent.

“JUST OK”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Service was slow, but they were busy. I thought it was strange we had to wait on soft drinks (vs. tea or water), because the "bar" had to prepare them. I don't care for their chile (red) sauce, but others did. Their salsa is fresh and very good. The chips are very greasy, but the flour tortillas are excellent. Really a situation where it depends on your personal taste whether you will like this place. The decor was predictable, the noise level was high, and the wait was about 30 minutes. A place we will probably return to, but will be picky about what we order.

“Must have been an off day”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via Local Picks

Had heard this was the best Mexican food in town, but not the day I went. Food was terrible. Beans tasted like they came out of a can. Just very disappointed because we had heard such great remarks about it. Might give them one more try, but if it turns out bad again.....you'll never see me in that place again.

“Best Mexican Food in Corpus Christi”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Kiko's has the best Mexican Food in Corpus Christi. Their prices are reasonable and their waitstaff are great. The cheese enchilada plate with their rice and refried beans are wonderful! I have eaten enchiladas in other restaurants in Corpus and it seems like they got their chili sauce out of the frozen food precooked meals at HEB. My husband loves their salsa and they make a very good guacamole.
