Though the migas are masterful, it's not just the food that makes Cisco's an essential part of the Austin experience. For decades, this Eastside breakfast joint has served as heart and hub of the concentric rings of power that, for better or worse, have guided this part of the world for longer than many of us can remember. Of course, owner Rudy Cisneros has been there all along - presiding, gathering stories, greeting every customer like an old friend. Now he's put the restaurant up for sale, with himself as part of the deal - we say it's an Austin tradition worth preserving at any price.
