You can't go wrong with this place, all the good is great. Get the pollo con mole and micheladas. Their salsas are also great. Very clean and fast service.

As we entered this "Mexican" restaurant, we noticed none of the customers were Latino. Now we know why. First of all, this is a clean, well kept establishment with good service. As for the food; I'm not a fan of spicy food; but even for me, the food was way too bland. In fact, it was almost tasteless. That's why... More

We went outside our comfort zone to try this place based on the other reviews. I'm always looking for good tortilla soup. I found it here. It was loaded with well-seasoned chicken and the broth was so flavorful. My son had the Esteban special (carne asada and a tamale) - he said it was delicious. Hubby had chicken enchiladas and...

This Mexican restaurant owned and operated by a very nice couple from Mexico serve each of the meals with lots of fresh vegetables and more chicken or beef then any other we have tried. It's a greater value for the price. Once you eat there you'll understand how much more you get. All made fresh to order.

We both had Tamales, my husband really liked his chicken one. My potato one was okay. We had a BOGO free coupon so meal was cheap so can't complain too much. Overall meal & service was just okay.

We are frequent patrons to Circo Circo and are always greeted warmly. They have the best enchiladas ever. All their selections are fresh, well prepared, and delicious. Excellent menu and beverage selection.

While many restaurants are closed on Mondays, Circo Circo (opposite Fred Meyer on Pac Highway in Kent) is a quiet oasis serving unhurried meals. The original owners take pride in offering a diverse menu. This evening I tried Enchillada Espinacas with refried beans, and rice (a vegetarian option after hearing today about processed meats found increasingly carcinogenic by the World... More

We had wonderful food and they even have some lowfat dishes (my favorite). My husband loves their carne asada and has never found any that is this good anywhere else! The family that runs it is terrific and they really care about making sure you are happy with your meal. We have been eating here for years and have celebrated... More

Circo was a lunch favorite for years in its former location nearer the Des Moines area than the Kent warehouses. Then it appeared to close and open under new management, and I just stopped going. Today I had a bad Jones for Mex, and told Siri to find me Circo's new location. It was miles south of the former site,... More

This is one of our favorite mexican restaurants in Kent and we have eaten here for years. Food is reliably very good, never disappointing. The carne asada is tender and flavorful. I had the pork verde once and loved it. We get green salsa to go.
