We stopped while traveling. I had a waffle and my husband had the pork tenderloin sandwich. Both tasted great. His tenderloin was one of the better tenderloin she’s had, and he’s had quite a few. If we ever travel through Austin again, we’ll make another...More

Love to stop here for lunch and have their deep fried chicken sandwich or their chicken salad. The staff here are super friendly and service is swift. My husband loves their breakfast (which he also orders for lunch) - especially the Belgian Waffles. So Good!!

So disappointed! Last time really enjoyed the food. This time I sat by the room where dirty & clean dishes go in and out. By the time the food came I was pretty grossed out. The place where the dirty dishes go before going it...More

Basic diner menu, but with Spam, makes sense with Hormel in town. Food was good and fast. Waitstaff friendly.

My fiancé and I stopped here for dinner on a long road trip and after reading reviews, we were excited to enjoy our meals. Unfortunately, we really didn’t. I had a burger and he had a patty melt. It was like over-priced carnival food. Our...More

You can't go wrong with the everything hash browns! I can choose from sausage gravy or hollandaise (I get sausage) cooked to perfection and Oh So yummy! Quaint 50's feel. Great service too

Nice little surprise. Decided to go to Austin for lunch & found Kenny’s in an Internet search. Did not figure out why it is called Oak Grill, but food was delicious! Will definitely go back again!

Went there for breakfast last Saturday. The service was awesome, with our waitress accommodating several requests for custom omelets and extra condiments - all with a cheerful and welcoming attitude. Coffee and water were replenished frequently and the food was delicious. Will definitely go back...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.
