“for the small town of Tonopah, its great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Getting into Tonopah, one notices theres not much to choose from(google says burger king is one of the top restaurants!!) but ciscos wont let you down. Make sure to order the tacos. They are $1.99 each and 3 will make a complete meal. The taco isnt full of fillers, they are simple, using only flavored meat and cheese shreads on the top. You add the salsa, which is also good. The beans and rice sides are yummy but very small. The restaurant itself has indoor and outdoor seating and the people were very nice and accommodating. Its kinda a self serve place so save more money on not tipping too. They have an ice cream shop as part of their offerings. The menu is not just mexican either...quite a wide range of tastes will be happy.

“Good food and great customer service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were driving through Central Nevada and stopped at Cisco's in Tonopah, Nevada, for lunch. Just your basic lunch counter: sandwiches, pizza, and some Mexican dishes. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

What motivated this review, however, was the excellent service, which was far better than you might expect in a small, independent lunch place in a small town.

Moreover, the waiter noticed that we were reviewing our local-area maps, and inquired where we were headed. When we said "Lake Tahoe," he politely offered to advise us on the alternatives and recommended a particular route, which we had not considered. He mentioned it was his wife's favorite route and it took us through a beautiful, less-traveled area of Western Nevada and Eastern California past the spectacular Mono Lake.

Mono Lake was not on our itinerary at all, and ended up being our favorite stop on our entire road trip.

Our compliments to this friendly young man, whose name we regrettably failed to get, and to the management of Cisco's.

“Fast food that's good!”

This place is a gem. Hidden on main street west of town, but worth finding. Menu of burgers and mexican dishes. Easily the best burger in Tonopah.
