Westlake Village Restaurants: 11 reviews and 41 photos
Cisco's has been a staple Mexican Restaurant in Westlake Village since 1972. I first went to Cisco's in 1977 and have been a patron even since. In fact, I enjoy the food at Cisco's so much, that I was given a surprise 50th birthday party by my wife for 100 guests. That is one birthday I will not forget. My wife laughed afterwards and told me that the bar bill was three times the food bill. Ah, my friends know how to drink. Ole! One of the best made Margaritas and a good selection of tequilas and beer are available at a wonderful newly built bar. The restaurant was closed at this location for a few years due to a fire that destroyed the building. In late 2009, Cisco's Westlake, reopened to Mariachi Music and a lot of fanfare. The newly rebuilt restaurant has several rooms that can be private party rooms as well as a wall of waterfall windows in a private room that seats twelve.
Service at Cisco's has always been superb, one of the reasons the restaurant has been around since 1972. Always polite waitstaff that want to please every patron. The food is not just typical Mexican American dishes but many fine regional dishes of Mexico are available. The best part is that when, not if, you return the food quality and taste is the same as the last visit. The sign of a great restaurant. The new decor is large mirrors and paintings with lots of greenery outside and wood trim inside. It is done in a refined way and not a touristy, gaudy design but sleek and modern. The strolling Marichis are a nice addition and entertainment nights are also great for the club crowd. Not bad, for a bedroom community that rolls up the carpet by 10 pm.
Favorite Dish: So many choices that one must have a taste in mind or you could spend a lot of time just trying to decide what to eat. Let me give you an example. Fajitas. One of my favorite dishes. Plain and simple; a dish that comprises a main meat and some vegetables, mostly bell peppers and onions and brought sizzling to your table in a pan. Tortillas (Mexican flat bread) served in a container, on the side, to put portions of the dish mixture into, fold the filled tortilla and enjoy eating this wonderful taste by hand. Easy to order. Easy to eat. Ready for this. Cisco's outdoes the competition in Fajitas. Most Mexican Restaurants have three maybe four types of Fajitas. Here is Cisco's eight types of Fajita choices accompanied by grated cheese, pico de gallo and refried beans. Steak, Chicken, Shrimp, Mahi-Mahi, Steak and Chicken, Steak and Shrimp, Chicken and Shrimp and the vegetarian Portabella Mushroom. They are all great and very satisfying as well as filling. Yes, Cisco's is my choice when I desire the taste of old Mexico.
