Cisco's Restaurant Bakery & Bar Restaurant Review

: Since the ’50s, Cisco's has been dishing up beloved breakfasts, including awesome homemade buttermilk biscuits with melted butter and honey for dipping. The aroma of fresh coffee and the colorful, authentic pan dulce that wafts out of the aquamarine exterior inspires curiosity-seekers as well as regulars to wait for a table. Once inside, the funky wood-paneled back room lined with photos chronicling Austin's development from chili cook-offs to legislative VIPs makes breakfast a pleasant and tasty history lesson. Weekend warriors can't resist the legendary spicy migas: soft scrambled eggs folded together with cheese, onions and crunchy, freshly-fried corn tortilla strips. Generous huevos rancheros, slowly simmered with salsa and smoky refried beans, are also textbook correct, as are the breakfast tacos and fluffy, big-as-your-face pancakes. The lunch menu offers similarly sinful concoctions like gooey beef enchiladas with thick chile gravy, crispy bean and cheese tacos, combination plates, and the hearty carne guisada.
