Due to food sensitivities, there was little on the menu that I could eat except the avocado tacos. Fortunately, they were fabulous! Their beans were too spicy for me to eat, but the tacos were super yum.

Imagine that you've got VIP seating at the diner in heaven. Double the quality. That's Kerbey Lane. EVERY time I find myself there, they just kill it. The "A" game every time.

Great breakfast that was too much to finish. James was very kind and fast. Good selection of specialized and contemporary fare. Food was delicious (although the breakfast cook needs to learn the difference between eggs over well and over hard). Call ahead reservations and phone tracking makes for convenient waiting. Will be back.

I haven't been to Austin in quite awhile. But visited with my wife and son so he could tour UT Austin campus.

Yum! This was an excellent choice for breakfast or brunch. I definitely recommend any of their pancakes. The service was nice and the food was even better.

I had only eaten at the Kirbey Lane location but loved this one. Right by campus, great food, staff was great. Parking was a little crazy but was worth it.

Great food and outstanding service. Came by after graduation and enjoyed the queso and chips and then settled in for the outstanding food.
