I come back to Kerbey Lane everytime I'm in the area. Fantastic food for great price with friendly staff. Its extremely busy for breakfast so be sure to show up early but its well worth it. Everything looks delicious on the menu!

Had a fairly large group. Told it would be 25 minutes. No one was in the place since it was early. As crowd came in, we said split us up if that was necessary. Nope, other people sat and we waited. When out name was finally called, my wife goes up and the women says "I gave away your table".... More

Interesting selection of both egg dishes and pancakes. There are specials of the day and you can have your pancakes "swirled". Especially like the eggs Benedict on a biscuit!

I've been living in Austin for about 2 years now and this is the restaurant I bring all of my friends and family to when they visit. I would recommend the Paris Texas Platter. It comes with a large plate of french toast and a large plate of migas. Ask for the sour cream sauce! Expect to wait anywhere from... More

Stopped in for breakfast before touring UT Austin and had the most delicious pumpkin pancakes ever and had a bite of the brisket tacos that were delicious. Great place for breakfast and lunch just across Guadalupe from UT Austin. Perfect place to stop when visiting the campus.

I have now visited two locations in Austin. My favorite is without a doubt the original store located on Kerbey Lane/35th. Such an awesome menu and the Kerbey Queso is to die for. In the center of this bowl surrounded by the sinful Queso is a scoop of guacamole. Incredible..... After tasting, and eating four different selections I will say... More

Always a good meal here, whether breakfast or lunch. I haven't been to dinner here, but I know someone who goes often enough that I think it's probably a testament to a good meal as well.

I loved it. Loved it, loved it. The most delicious food. I had a cobb salad. I usually have a cobb salad every where I go and it was the best I ever had ever. The chicken had so much flavor and it was fresh and delicious. I had the most amazing apple pie. My husband had the chicken fried... More

Went with daughter and granddaughters for breakfast on a Sunday. Super busy but we only had to wait about 30 minutes. They have an app where you can tell how many ate in front of you. They have indoor and outdoor seating. In cold weather they close the patio and have heating. Different breakfast choices. I had a gingerbread pancake.... More

We had a lovely casual lunch here. The California omelet was out of this world. The sides are delicious (especially the black beans) and service was friendly. If you are in Austin and want a fresh casual meal don't hesitate to give this a try. We will be back.

Thank Beth H
