This friendly little cafe is about a mile walk down 6th from the music district. Pleasant walk. Nice folks. Neighborhood vibe. Good breakfast.

We eat there anytime working downtown around lunch. I've tried a lot of different stuff on the menu and they are all solid. The place is quirky and old school, but you can run into local Austin celebs, politicians and everybody else in this place. The lunch specials are always good and they have breakfast all day so you can... More

I have loved this institution for many years and the service and food quality are still great! We visited again on a recent trip to Austin and found that the building is being sold and they may have to close. I sure hope not! This is a landmark restaurant and should be saved. The Migas and Huevos Rancheros are not... More

What a great place. You want to meet Austin? Here it is. Unimposing outside. Pothole in the parking lot across the street. Seems like a little place and the front dining room confirms that mistaken impression: plenty of seating in the back. Great staff. Authentic Mexican food. We were there for breakfast with a large group: no problem. Line up... More

Recommended by my brother (I will get him back), he told us to go here for good breakfast. Food was fair, and the place can use a good cleaning.

It has been close to forty years since I enjoyed a meal at Ciscos. The memory of excellent migas was rewarded when I felt the same thrill while dining on my old favorite. I enjoyed the Julian Read table. Interesting pictures and articles. Sure hope I return a lot faster than 40 years!

As a long-time Austin resident, and with the wife and kids out of town on a recent weekend, I decided to make a long overdue trip to Cisco's. I'm a huge breakfast taco fan, and with Cisco's traditionally making many top breakfast taco lists in Austin, I was excited to give it a try. I was not disappointed. While I... More

Hidden on the east side of Austin is one of the three "must go" family Mexican restaurants (Cisco's, Angie's, and Juan in a Million). Relaxed and laid back, the staff is friendly and quick. I had the migas, which comes with a sausage patty as well as refried beans. Ask for one of each when they ask if you would... More

I heard a rumor that Cisco's is going to be closing. I hope it's not true. I think I have been here each and every time I've visited Austin – about five times, which is a good thing. A real Austin institution, I've been told. Physically, the place is a disheveled mishmash of adjoining rooms, which is all part of... More
