We found this restaurant on the internet as it was on our way home. Looked good we love Mexican breakfast. There wasn't much Mexican stuff on the menu but we were able to find something we like and we're looking forward to eating it. We waited around a half hour and no one came to take our order. People that... More

My husband first tried Cisco's for breakfast a few months ago and couldn't stop raving about it. We decided to try it for lunch over the weekend. Pros: I had the tortilla soup and a vegetarian burrito and both were delicious! The red sauce they put on top of the burrito was amazing. The owner checked on us and made... More

I usually go for breakfast at Cisco's, recently they started serving dinner on Friday and Saturday. The food is very good, I like the tortilla soup, the Mexican dishes are well prepared and delicious. Very reasonably priced, I would recommend the restaurant to friends and family. Bring your own wine or beer as they don't serve alcoholic beverages, or buy... More

I'm a truck driver from Maine and when I'm in the area I always stop in. The breakfast is excellent and the staff is always friendly and quick.

This restaurant is small and makes you feel right at home. Our waitress was pleasant and felt like a member of our family! The chef was extremely friendly and helpful as well. I ordered the "pancake sandwich" and it was quite good, filling and a pleasant change from the norm. I would certainly not hesitate to go back whenever I'm... More

Hard to pick when there are too many choices you want. Went with the California omelette with avocado and chorizo and was not disappointed. Next time, might ask to substitute refried beans for toast but didn't think to ask. My companions had the hash omelette and the enchiladas with eggs and the table got pretty quiet while we were enjoying... More

My favorite local place for good Mexican food. Try the Pork Carnitas taco. The quality of the food is so much better than many of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. Even the rice and beans which are afterthoughts at many other places become something to savor here. It's not fancy. If that's what you want, you won't find... More
