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.

Everyone raved about this place, so we decided to go. You could tell it was popular because there was a line when we got there. The pancakes have a vanilla flavor and were thick. I think it's a matter of taste.my family liked them, but it was too much vanilla for me. Great sweet potato fries.

Always a great visit, though always busy! If going on the weekend, go early to avoid the masses; also parking is a bit tricky, so be prepared to walk if you cannot find a spot. Also, you will not be seated until your full group is there. As for food, their pancakes are delectable! I like to get two pancakes,... More

one of my sons needs to eat gluten-free, and the other can't eat dairy- so I was thrilled to find this place. They could both get pancakes that met their dietary needs....what could be better? Parking is tight, so try to get there early. There was a long line when we were leaving around 10 on a Saturday morning.

We had some terrific breakfast here - pancakes, french toast, eggs and such. Staff were friendly and food was served in a timely fashion. All of it was great.

Delicious lunch - recommend the red quinoa salad! Others in our party had burgers and pancakes - all great! Friendly, patient service and we were delighted when our server returned with our check and told us that lunch was on the restaurant! Apparently, this is something they do on occasion (perhaps for us because we were out of town) -... More

Loved the wonderful omelets! perfectly prepared! We were pleasantly surprised that on occasion when the bill prints up it says that the restaurant appreciates you! and the bill is zero! Even if we had to pay our bill I would have written a great review!

we were visiting Univ of Texas and wondering where we should eat. Everyone suggested Kerbey Lane so we had to visit. While the lunch food was ok (grilled cheese with bacon and pears), the breakfast food was outstanding. I don't think we ever had a better pancake--especially the cinnamon roll pancaked--which were out of this world. The queso was also... More
