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

We were told that Cisco's was a must not miss place for breakfast. The food was excellent as were the prices. The Migas were great and the decor was pretty funky. Definitely worth the trip

I have not been here in 15 years and still nothing has changed. The food was a wonderful as I had remembered and the very quick and kind waitresses - my son's first time there and will not be his last - Thank you Cisco's for still being here 😀

Wonderful breakfast--Migas were great and very filling. Have yours with 1 biscuit, 1 tortilla so you can try both. We also had chorizo and egg breakfast taco, which was also yummy. We hadn't ordered biscuits at first but they looked so good at another table, we changed our order! They serve breakfast and lunch all day long. Austin institution--don't miss... More

If you want a classic, tex-mex, old school Austin breakfast, check out Cisco's on the east side! The breakfast tacos are great but the best part is the ambiance. I would highly recommend Cisco's if you are looking for an affordable, casual dining experience.

Cisco's on East 6th was a favorite of Lyndon Johnson in the 60s and it's still going strong today. The migas breakfast is sensational as is the Cisco's special with grilled fajita meat, huevos rancheros, and a taco. On the weekends it's always packed but the turnover is pretty quick and folks are coming in and out all day. It's... More

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
