Kikis restaurants are the new inexpensive Bigos!! They rock w a wide variety on their menu, prices are great and the serving size is huge!! Love the fajitas since they are very juice and their achiote grilled chicken is great as well!!

Got sick from Kiki's 3 times in a row so won't be eating there ever again, it was different locations as well. Think it's just a dirty place.

Great tasting with a nice presentation for such quick service. The Charro Beans and Pico were outstanding and everything was great!

We enjoyed our meal at Kikki's. Very different from what we see in the Dallas area. Different but good. No alcohol and no ice tea. The Mexican Coca Cola was pretty good. Salsa was wonderful.

The food here is delicious! The prices on the menu are very reasonable. I only advice to be careful when it's time to pay. I'm a regular customer and I say that about 8 out of 10 times, the cashier overcharges a few bucks. I always have to ask him to redo my check. The cashier usually says that the... More

Four of us ordered the platter for three and it was enough for six. It was good. I really liked the nachos that were just chips, cheese, beef and fresh avocados. Good service, low-key environment. Great prices.

To start, they have some very good flavored lemonades. From there you can have an entree or buffet. They have something diffetent on the buffet everytime and its all great. If the inside was nicer would give 5 stars

It is a dive but they have several things I love and they are to die food. The food is consistently good and the service is always good too. There are other Kikis around town and each one is excellent with the same quality of food. There are Kikis in new buildings around town. I highly recommend all of them... More

Description
This gem is located just NE of the intersection of N Central Ave and E 14st street just outside the Brownsville Airport. The prices are very low, portions huge, lots of Mexican families here , the salsa and guacamole are to die for and all the platters are great (a little greasy but OK). It's a total dive decorated with posters from "lucha libre" wrestling sports icons. This may be the only "authentic" Mexican food you see on a trip to nearby South Padre Island. They have several other locations in the area.
