Must stop here for breakfast

My wife and I love Austin and we always stop here for breakfast usually on our way out of town on Sunday morning. Typical Mexican breakfaat tacos, Migas and the like are fantastic but the chips and hot sauce keep me coming back!

Tried this place out for breakfast and it was ok as far as Mexican. I had tacos, my hubby had migas and my daughter had pancakes. My only complaint was the tortillas did not taste authentic but they weren't terrible.

This place has been a haunt for politicians and big-wigs for many, many years. It did not have a menu for many, many years. It was one of the only places in Austin to be able to get a Bloody Mary on Sundays before noon - as they were provided free to skirt the law banning alcohol service before noon... More

The food may be average but you are going back in time. Take a drive down 6th Street passing buildings from the 1880s to the early 20th century. The plaque in the restaurant say it opened in 1950. Don't believe it. Ask the son who now runs the place. It opened in 1943. I walked pass the this place as... 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?

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. The... More

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!
