Cisco’s is one of the only original Austin joints still standing, and you’re here for a Tex-Mex breakfast. The owners would probably rather you didn’t even think of this as a “brunch” spot - coming here is about appreciating things the way they were in the ’70s. So on a weekend, there’s nothing better than a “late breakfast” of huevos rancheros with fajita steak or a migas plate, followed by a biscuit with honey and butter. Keep an eye out for photos on the walls of Austin politicians like LBJ - they were known to shake hands, kiss babies, and lobby for their agendas over breakfast at Cisco’s in their day.
