Worth the wait

Arrived Saturday afternoon and was told 30 minute wait for party of 5... Turned out to be shorter wait. Large menu selection and waiter was very attentive. Food was good and the portions were large...doggie bag to go. Family friendly including young children!

NOT FOR PEOPLE SEEKING GLUTEN FREE. This restaurant boasts of gluten free breads and pancakes but upon inquiry made when my daughter went there to dine with her daughter who has Celiac, she was basically told they could not accommodate her. I guess they were at least honest but why bother to include this as a part of your menu... More

There isn't anything fancy about this place, but the service, food and atmosphere all translated to a fun breakfast. It's located right next to the UT campus, so you'll see lots of college students there. I highly recommend the Eggs Francisco!

Met a student friend here while visiting Austin. I loved the traditional diner menu; ordering fried green tomatoes since I loved the film as a kid! The pancakes are fabulous. They even had a nice red wine to accompany! Apparently it's open all night- exactly the kind of place I'd love to visit after a few jars :)

My mom and I were visiting Austin and stopped by for lunch - we were pleasantly surprised by the salads on the menu. My mom and I shared the hummus plate, which was delicious, and we both had a different salad brimming with fresh lettuce, tasty dressings and a generous variety of toppings. I had Nabil's Mid-East Feast which was... More

We enjoy going to Kerbey Lane for breakfast, lunch, or a late night snack. The thing we really like about Kerbey Lane is that they come up with healthy food ideas. The only thing that bothers me is that I do not get 2 corn tortillas that seems to be the standard at any other place when you order a... More

I came with my partner, Dave served us and he was very helpful in explaining the menu. The menu is big and at 16:15 pm they served dinner, breakfast And lunch :) however the food was expensive in my opinion. Everything is pretty much 10 or above, drinks are 2.75 and above. It's not the best bang for the buck!... More

Our hotel recommended Kerbey Lane for brunch and we are so glad they did. We were in Austin to take an admissions tour of the University of Texas. This Kerbey Lane is across the street from the campus. It offers comfort food in very generous portions. My kids had breakfast and loved it: delicious gingerbread pancakes, really good bacon and...

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.
