Kerbey Lane never disappoints. I always have the pancakes, eggs, chicken sausage, and down it with a kafaff of mimosa. The wait staff is always cheerful, friendly and helpful. There seems to always have a wait, but it's worth it.

So fun to experience an Austin Landmark! We had Queso Philly, Greek Lamb Skewers, Pulled Pork Tacos, Migas and Cheesecake. Everything was good!

Full disclosure: I haunted this place 25 years ago as a student at Texas. Back then I sang the praises of its now gone Kerbey Chicken Sandwich with its grilled chicken breast, cream cheese, mushrooms and sprouts as well as the mocha butter crunch pie and Chris' chocolate cake. Those were the days...HOWEVER, all is not lost! Time goes on... More

Four of us went for Sunday brunch. There was an hour wait for the "first available" table. This is a very trendy place open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Though the food was ok, it was not worth the wait

It's rare that I'm impressed by a diner. I usually expect diner food, and usually that's what I get. However we were introduced to Kerbey Lane by a local shop owner.

I got the french toast here and it was super yummy :3 Also got a mocha, it was not as strong as I hoped, but still very good! Service was pretty quick and food came out fast!
