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.

I've been a big fan of this restaurant for years. Like most really good Mexican restaurants I've encountered, Circo Circo doesn't look like much on the outside, but step inside and you'll find a little piece of heaven. Julio and his staff are wonderful in every way - you WILL be treated like royalty - and the food is nothing... More

Circo Circo is in a strip mall and easy to miss, but once you find it be sure to order the tortilla soup! Most tortilla soups are tomato-based, but not so here. So much chicken, wonderfully tasty broth, obviously homemade with fresh tortilla strips. It makes me hungry just to think of it. I compare all other tortilla soups against... More

My husband and I live right around the corner from Circo Circo and have been going there for years. There was a time that we went in just about every Friday and it got to the point that they knew our names and what we ordered (since we always got the same thing). Amazingly, it had been about a year... More
