It may be a new site, (only 20 years or so at this location), but it's the same great good you remember 30 years ago..."cluckers, King James the first hamburger, Haddock dinner". Go, enjoy.

A classic diner decor along with great food at affordable prices. You feel your back in the 50s with a variety of Austin memorabilia on the walls.

Great location in the middle of Austin with great food and service. A 50's / 60's themed eatery with great decor as well. I've eaten lunch here a number of times and have never been disappointed - I will certainly continue to eat here.More

I try to eat healthy so I'm typically wary of the classic diner, but Kenny's had a huge menu with a handful of lite options. The chicken breast was tasty, and the breadsticks that came with it weren't the fresh-bread-drenched-in-butter style of breadsticks, but instead...More

I grew up in Austin and ate at the Oak Grill countless times. Since moving away, I hadn't been back in almost 5 decades, but had the opportunity yesterday. My first bite was of an onion ring (decor on a steak). It's taste carried me...More

First, I need to set the record straight on TripAdvisor's classification of this dinner. This site clearly lables the place as a cheap eat, but it is not cheap, even around here. Burgers are about 8 bucks, but fries are 2 bucks more for a...More

Kenny's Oak Grill is a restaurant. The bathrooms are clean and have the required items-soap, water and hand dryers. Not sure why you would expect a pool and spa. I think you are thinking of the wrong place.
