We just celebrated a family birthday with a group of 30 people. Restaurant is huge and can accommodate large parties. They let us bring our own birthday cake. Food is ok and well priced.

I had been wanting good Tex-Mex, and after looking at reviews, my friend and I decided to try this one. The waitress was absolutely delightful. I never got her name, but she had a long, braided ponytail. The food was what I remembered from my childhood, and I ate every bite. I was delighted to have been so satisfied.

We had breakfast here and enjoyed it very much. Our server was friendly and efficient, the food excellent, and the owner stopped by to say hello. We've eaten here several times and always come here for a meal when we're visiting in CC. Kiko's is very affordable and a very good value.

I have been to Kiko's several times and it is always good. The enchiladas are consistently delicious and the refried beans are cooked to perfection. On my last visit I was surprised but the tortillas are even better than before. The tortillas are soft serve hot, and are light and fluffy. About the only negative is the service is a... More

Nice experience. Mariachi band was a nice effect but a little loud. Wonderful soft warm flour tortillas. Everything we ordered was good. Not the most fabulous Mexican food I've ever had but not the worst either.

Howard, I'm glad that you added us to your list while you were in Corpus! Still, I wish that we had been able to make your "ok" meal a "great" one.

Let me start off by saying that the food was great, you get alot of food and it tastes great!

It was really good. Lots of food on plate. We were in bit of a rush when we stopped fast service. The food was amazing was just like grandma used to make. As rushed as we were we stopped the waitress to compliment the chef. Will go back.
