There is something about Kerbey Lane that is so comforting, consistent, Austin, and awesome. Go see for yourself. You won't be disappointed and try it for lunch or dinner on a weekday and it won't be nearly as crowded.

I grew up in Austin, and the amount of times I have gone for late night, delicious queso is more than I care to admit. Kerbey offers a huge menu that is served 24hrs, so no matter what time it is you can have whatever meal your heart desires. Be sure to check out their daily specials at the bar... More

We visit the Bullock Texas State History Museum she and found a book listing cafes in Texas. This place was listed, so we thought we'd try it as a change from typical fast food places or chains. It turned out to be a good choice. I had a delicious lamb burger which came with the best French fries that I've... More

I had a nice enough lunch here, but it may be telling that I really couldn't remember what I ate, and had to go look at their online menu to jog my memory. I do remember my hubby had a "strawberry fields" salad and liked that. I am pretty sure I had a chicken club, minus the spicy aioli, which... More

We enjoyed brunch here. Double chocolate cherry and buttermilk pancakes. My sister loved their breakfast tacos.

I had the poblano relleno and it was wonderful, very tasty and not too spicy. The just was very friendly and have good advice when we asked for help. The scenery outside the restaurant was very pleasant, but we had to fight off lots of flies. I can't wait to come back.

Very good. Had the meatloaf lunch with mashed potatoes and broccoli. All cooked perfectly and I ate every bit. One had the chicken and pancakes and the pancakes were outstanding. They had a little sweetness to them and no syrup was needed. Very friendly and attentive wait staff.

Trying to make it all fit! I keep trying to get photos of the food here but I can never keep myself from digging in soon as the food arrives. I wanted to try several of the items on the menu before reviewing. Greek lamb Burger was a bit of a surprise when it arrived. It is more like a... More

We decided that since we had a lot of time to kill, we would try the original Kerbey Lane, and it was worth the wait. It was a drizzly Saturday morning when we went, and there was a wait of about 35 minutes, but the time went fast since we visited the shops nearby, and then texted us when our... More

Kerbey Lane is a very popular cafe, often with long waits. That means the food is quite tasty. Our party of six had six different dishes. The pancakes were overwhelming favorites. The queso dip was also a big hit. We also tried one of the eggs benedict choices, the fried chicken and gravy and several egg dishes. Outdoor seating is... More
