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.

We decided to give this another chance after a poor experience the first time. Unfortunately we had another regrettable visit. The drinks were weak. Food was just ok. Then when the bills came, there was gratuity added automatically. When we were told one of the bills would be adjusted, we went a…
Nice place, decor can use a bit of enhancement, a limited menu, but reasonable & decent service. I'd try it for a casual affair
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!!
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 fri…
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!
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.
Ok first of all this place has great breakfast... The have a lot of choices but my always favorite is that eggs a lo ranchero plate... They have amazing salsa and it goes perfect with those egg tacos that they have... If you ever get a chance to go get a trashcan taco they are pretty good.!!! I will give it a 9 out of 10 in service... Not a full 10 cause the food took a while but it's ok it was worth the wait!!! I recommend this restaurant
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. .
*DELICIOUS* I am so picky about the taste of mexican food because there are so many mexican restaurants around. But the food was awsome..from the fajitas to home made tortillas,,guacamole,,rice..all good good good..and prices were very resonable.. LOVE LOVE LOVE will be going back for sure when ever we're in Corpus area
The food is AWESOME this restaurant is different from all the others. And I say it because the service is good. The first time I went with my wife we loved the charro beans and the meat had a decilious taste we also tried the Happy Hour and they make great margaritas. Well people I recomend this restaurant.
Yoli's #2 is as good as #1. The actual restaurant has more space so if #1 is full come down to this one and you will be served quickly. The food is great especially the beans cooked in bacon grease. Yummy! Homemade tortillas will have you coming back for more. Reasonable prices are the standard.
One of the best places in town for Mexican food. They have an extensive menu with some different items not served at other Mexican restaurants. Their plates are all hearty portions of great tasting dishes. Try the fried avocado or the sampler plate. Also the green salsa is really good too.
