Well i would like to start by saying, i have ate my share of good and not so good mexican food. Kiko's is right in the middle of the pack so to speak. We went on a friday night. They were rather busy as we expected. Overall the food was decent. The service was slow, actually really slow. The waitress had too many tables which is the fault of management. She also billed 2 people at the table incorrectly. 1 person at the table needed to leave early. This person asked if his plate could be placed in a box to take with him. The waitress said since she had placed the order already, she herself couldn't personally place the food in a box. She would have to bring a box to the customer in which he could place his own meal into the box?? Kind strange, they couldnt place the food in a box themselves.?? We had to asked for refills. Food took way too long to come out, several people ended up leaving because they took so long. The food was decent. The salsa is good. The margarita was decent, but the service here honestly stinks!! Management needs to wake up if the care about the future of this place.
Imo, the Acapulco at Mcardle and the one on Airline are the best when it comes to breakfast tacos, service, and in general just about everything on the menu. They are one of the few places that serve cactus that don't resemble greased cut up pieces of paper. This may sound harsh but I love cactus and i've been to one too many places where the cactus looks (does not taste any better) like its been pressed, lathered in grease and served on a taco. My only complaint would have to be the menudo. The menudo does taste good but it would be more enjoyable if the fat that is released by the honeycomb while it is simmering in the pot were skimmed off. Oh yes, the reason I don't care for the Weber Acapulco is because the 1x that I went and ordered shrimp it was rotten. Not just stored-away-in-the-fridge-too-long sort of taste but flat out rotten. Needless to say I did not eat it. In short, for my money and stomach I say Acapulco @ Mcardle and the one on Airline is the best!
