Cisco’s has been serving Tex-Mex for breakfast and lunch since the 1950′s, so I cannot imagine how I was able to live here for 16 years before discovering this east Austin institution. Now that I have tasted the unbelievable migas served with tender fajitas, the melt-in-your-mouth homemade biscuits with honey and melted butter and the hot flavorful coffee, I cannot wait to go back for more. My husband and I absolutely LOVE this place. We are always welcomed by friendly staff that make us feel right at home.
Migas (pronounced MEE gahs) is made from eggs, bits of corn tortilla, and a variety of savory ingredients such as black beans, chorizo, cheese, salsa and chiles. I always order the migas topped with tender fajitas.
If you see this bright blue building, you know you are at Cisco’s. There is plenty of parking on the street or in a parking lot across the street.
We always sit in the front room so we can watch the food being cooked. There is a main dining room with autographed photos of Lyndon B. Johnson, Walter Cronkite, John Connolly, Bob Bullock and many other politicians and dignitaries lining the wooden paneled walls. A co-worker told me that Lyndon B. Johnson “held court” here every morning during his Legislature days. If these walls could talk, I bet they would have wonderful stories to tell!
Cisco’s also serves migas with sausage. Do you see the steam rising from the hot fresh migas?
Breakfast is served with hot tortillas and large wonderfully fluffy biscuits.
