Authentic Tex-Mex Breakfast & Lunch

If your looking for the real-deal Austin establishment with fresh tacos and biscuits, you've found it in Cisco's. I'm not sure why it has "bakery" in its name, but it's very reasonably priced.

I do not order Migas unless I am setting at this place. I order Migas with a side of Fajitas and a biscuit for the ultimate Tex-Mex breakfast in Austin. I love slicing up the flank steak and mixing it into the ranchero sauce layed into the plate of eggs,tostado chips, and refried beans. There is no plate in this... More

I've been eating here since the beginning of the 70's when I got a driver's license and discovered it. Just AS GOOD now as then!!!!

Only went because a coworker said it was a good place to eat. Food was bland and didn't have any flavor. We will not be back.

Was in Austin for long weekend and ate breakfast at 3 places and this was the best. I had the chorizo and eggs and my wife had huevos rancheros. We both liked our meals. Staff were super friendly too. I would definitely go here again.

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!
