Great local dive for authentic Mexican!

We heard from friends that we should go to this place for a local authentic weekday breakfast. We were seated in the back room and greeted with chips and salsa and a little bowl of fresh charro beans that were so good! The Migas were great, but had a lot of onion and so much salsa on the plate... read more

This place is old school good. Nothing fancy just basic delicious Mexican food. I love going to Cisco's on Sunday friends.... Everything from fresh homemade biscuits to the best heuvos rancheros in town. Cisco's has been in business since the 50's and is one of this Austinites eateries!

The food here was okay, but not great. For the price was expecting bigger portions, but overall it's a good breakfast if you're in the area. No wifi, who does that?

Had breakfast on a Sunday. Did the migas which were great and a bloody mary which was spicy and strong. Great stuff all around. But the shock was the biscuits which were awesome particurlarly when drizzled with honey (supplied on table). I'd be a regular if I lived in Austin. Come in your jeans and t-shirts; relax and enjoy.

Before leaving Austin we had to make a trip to this famous hang out. My companion has talked for hours of the time and intrigue of this late 1960 / 1970 legend. Staff was pleasant. We walked to the back room and was seated. A great bowl of beans, chips and salsa that fired up the dead. We ordered then... More

Previously I had only enjoyed breakfast, but today stopped by for lunch. Absolutely my favorite Mexican food in Austin!

I first found Ciscos in the 70s, and returned recently to check it out. Nothing has changed, which is remarkable. Good place to stop between downtown and the airport. We were there at 9am on a Sunday and it was very quiet, but school is not in session. Nice stroll down memory lane for me.

Cisco's has been a secret UT tradition for as long as I can recall. While the setting is "dive" the people are friendly, prices are cheap and food remains awesome. We go frequently.

I was actually looking for grits. I am from Canada but love to eat grits when I head south. Ciscos was on the recommended list from our Airbnb in East Austin so we thought we would give it a try. I don't think the waiter had ever heard of grits. :-) I opted for biscuits and gravy (Another classic) with... More
