Cisco's Restaurant Bakery & Bar Restaurant Review

: Cisco’s has been dishing up beloved breakfasts since the 1950s. In fact, it's such an institution that, at one time, it would’ve been hard to be elected for any city office in Austin without the Cisco’s blessing. With new-fangled condos sprouting around it, and a culinary scene that has evolved exponentially in recent years, Cisco’s clings to the basic, no-frills food that has endeared it to Austinites for generations. 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 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 concoctions like beef enchiladas with thick chile gravy, crispy bean-and-cheese tacos, combination plates, and the hearty carne guisada.
