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.

I'm from Flour Bluff too. I second that opinion about the ""taco stand"". The tacos made near the mexican american border don't even slightly compare in any way to the greatness of the taco stands tacos. I gotta go. I'm going to order a couple of fat tacos from the taco stand now. bye! :P~
THE SCENE: Spacious (perfect for dining in large groups), the restaurant gives options for booth sitting or large tables. Most of the employees belong to the same family (Mexican immingrants). The entire staff understands English, but most respond only in Spanish. THE FOOD: Generous portions o…
Very pleased with the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere. Also, VEGETARIANS REJOICE! This is a vegetarian friendly restaurant. It is difficult for us to find a place the whole family can enjoy, but my daughter, the Veggie, was very happy with the Spinach Enchilada plate. Not all of La Playa's veggie meals are on the menu, so ask the waitress. I also liked that the manager cares enough about the restaurant's performance that he comes out to talk with customers about their dining experience. Given the opportunity, I'd definitely come back to the La Playa Restaurant located at 5017 Saratoga.
I took my manager and our office Assistant here for lunch and was very happy with it. Nice atmosphere and they have a $6.99 lunch special everyday that I got that you can pick from a bunch of choices and there was so much food on my plate that I couldn't finish. I coming back not just to eat but to try their Margarita specials. Our office manager also found out from the Manager of the restaurant (he came to our table to check on how we liked the food) that they also do catering. So we might be using them in the future for an office luncheon.
I usually have breakfast. Their food is always Excellent! The service is Sharp , Fast, and Friendly. The Staff may not be bilingual, but their menu is. Despite the language barrier, the staff is able to take a Perfect order. I only wish that their restaurant was bugger; so I can invite more friends and family. Oh, I just remembered. Their salsa is EXCELLENT!: a must to take extra home..
Great food! Very authentic. Service is fast & great too. They really want to please you. They have great salsa & corn & flour tortilla chips. Love it!
The service was slow and the food was room temperature when it was finally brought to us almost an hour after we ordered it. We didn't bother sending it back because we had already been there long enough as it was.
My husband and I used to eat here all the time. Great atmosphere! Food is good and the service is what you will get anywhere, the person writing 1 star reviews has no tastebuds lolll must be a fired employee
Best food in downtown Corpus Christi! Tacos are great! Service is great! Our office walks across the street to eat for breakfast and lunch and they are quick to give us our orders! They deserve 10 STARS!!
