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

Been anxious to try this joint after hearing about their migas. I'm a migas freak; I make a mean batch myself and I've eaten the best growing up in S. Texas. I saw migas (they looked great) on plates walking by tables as we were being seated in the back dining room. This room was so cold, my wife asked... More

A Unique East Austin establishment that has been serving traditional Mexican breakfast's since LBJ was a Senator! Be sure to check out all of the autographed photos around the restaurant. Migas with fajita meat was the overall winning breakfast at our table. Come early on the weekend or be prepared to wait.

My husband and I met at Ciscos over 42 years ago and decided to share our 40th wedding anniversary breakfast on June 9, 2013 at Ciscos with 25 friends. The Sunday morning meetings at Ciscos became a regular event for UT sports fans and Texas political leaders. This restaurant provides a rustic setting and has that Texas atmosphere that Austin...

I've lived in Austin for almost 30 years and I finally went to Cisco. The decor probably would have looked exactly the same if I had gone 30 years ago. That's what makes this place special. The food is good, not great. The service was very good. The menu is not extensive but has some main Mexican dishes. I went... More

I never would have found this place without the help of a friend from Austin, but I am so glad I did. If you are looking for a sheik fancy spot, Cisco's is not for you. I you want an authentic Austin restaurant that has been in its location forever, this is the place. It had a local feel, but... More
