Frank S. Nugent, of The New York Times, reviewed the film saying, "In sum, The Cisco Kid and the Lady is good old-fashioned horse opera and good entertainment to boot". Time Out London wrote that the film has "a shaggy-dog charm". Paul Mavis of DVD Talk rated it 3.5/5 stars and called it "completely satisfying". Patrick Naugle of DVD Verdict wrote, "The Cisco Kid and the Lady is standard western stuff (everything unfolds as you'd expect, with the requisite happy ending), but for what it is, it's amusing and goes down easy as a shot of tequila."
