Our UT daughter recently took us to Kerbey Lane and we weren't as impressed as she - and a lot of other students seem to be. We started with the queso with guacamole which had good flavor but wasnt as hot as it should have been. Sandwiches were pretty good but agian, not great. My son had the pancakes and... More

Walked here after a concert at the Frank Erwin Center on a Friday night. Delicious food with good portion sizes. Orders breakfast and pancakes were some of the best I've ever had. Friend ordered a sandwich and loved it. Will definitely make another stop here in the future when in Austin.

First visit to Kerby Lane. I liked the variety of menu offerings and the "breakfast all day" option. The Kerbey Lane Queso is not to be missed though I think pita chips would compliment it better than the tortilla chips. I tried the watermelon gazpacho soup - yum, but the watermelon obviously gives it a sweet flavor which was unusual.... More

I was looking for a cafe for breakfast and we decided to try this one. It didn't disappoint! We got there about 9 and got right it (although when we left there was a waiting line). The parking lot was probably the worst part, really small and only one way in/out. We had the combo of pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage... More

We love to visit Kerbey Lane when in Austin. Their menu has a wide variety of foods. Breakfast is served all day. I must recommend the pancakes. Ask what the special pancakes are that day. They also have interesting seasonal foods. The watermelon gazpacho was delicious. The only reason I do not give this place 5 stars is the service.... More

Have visited this Kerbey Lane location umpteen number of times as a student at UT Austin. Love their buttermilk pancakes and homefries. Tortilla soup and omelets are pretty good too!

Literally. We make sure we always eat here, you can't beat the Fried Avocado Tacos, Kerbey Lane Queso, & Bison burger. My boyfriend & I ate it back to back for breakfast & dinner, & just about everytime we visit. We don't even care to try anything else, it's just too good.
