    The bisquits are wonderful and fluffy! Diane is a brilliant server, and everyone is nice. Try the migas taco with chorizo! The fajita beef is so tender. Reakly seems you can not go wrong!

    State politicos, including LBJ, have wheeled and dealed for decades over the excellent migas, huevos rancheros, chorizo, biscuits, fajitas, and enchiladas that Cisco's serves for breakfast and lunch.

    Authentic and greasy, this East 6th institution cures almost any hangover. Try the Cisco Plate for a taste of everything or do the migas with a side of fajita steak if you’re into eggs.

    SXSW Recommendation from Sietsema-Migas is the #1 choice, but you can also get huevos rancheros w/ refried beans & a choice of tortillas or biscuits. This is his favorite restaurant in the world.

    A staple for East Austin, Cisco's is only open til 2pm every day, but is always busy. Their breakfast migas have won local awards, the food is cheap and their service is always quick. Read more

    Be sure to get there early enough to get beans (they sometimes run out around noon) and order a Cisco Special with both biscuits & tortillas!

    Forget upscale comfort food. There's nothing upscale about Cisco's and that's why we, and our hangovers, love it. [Eater 38 Member]

    The chicken fried steak was excellent! The customer service...was excellent! Great place to have a bite to eat.

    If you haven’t been here, you don’t know Austin. This place hasn’t changed much in the 50 plus years it has been open. It’s full of history and much of it is on the walls.

    Best Huevos Rancheros in town! Ask to have your biscuits toasted, not a joke seriously!

    It's really not that great. Im sorry. The building is cool. I want to like it. I really do. The tortillas are store bought and that just doesn't cut it.

    Don't bother looking at the menu - order biscuits with honey, huevos rancheros, and strip steak for breakfast.

    The chorizo & egg taco is delish. Coffee is good, too!

    Order your eggs slightly more well done than you really want. Also, if you are too late, they will run out of biscuits, which is tragic.

    If you're averse to super spicy tell them to leave off the Ranchero sauce. It's a 5 alarm recipe.

    It's 2015, gay marriage may not be legal *yet* in Texas, but don't need to listen to a staff member's (possibility the owner) homophobic racially-tinged ramblings. Skip.
