“Place is great! It’s consistent with the service, food and atmosphere. Every single family and friend we’ve gathered with absolutely LOVES this restaurant. We have been coming here for years and the tourists that feel it’s a “tourist trap” need to understand what type of restaurant they are walking into- local, great food, service and family owned. Knockout martini is amazing, Bob Armstrong dip is unbeatable. The burritos and beef fajitas are the best by far. We will continue to support Austin’s favorite Tex mex restaurant and clearly the people that matter will too.“

“I've been in Austin for over 20 years and Kerbey Lane still remains my favorite place to go for local comfort food. The service is great - easy, not rushed, and kind people work there. They are an inclusive business and their staff seem happy at work. The food is always delicious and consistently prepared well & fast. My dog is always welcome on their patio. I love the coffee.If you're looking for authentic, casual Austin (not some overpriced "bourbon-infused chicken and waffle concept" where you need a reservation a year in advance), go to Kerbey. They know what they're doing.Also the pancakes. Lord have mercy. ?“

“Can’t wait to go back!!The tables are all picnic tables both indoor and outdoor seating is available. They have handheld menus as well as billboard style.Lots of options for both omnivores and vegetarians alike. I had the torta with mushrooms , added Avacado and let me tell you it did not disappoint! The bread was really good and so was the filing however I wish there would have been more mushrooms, I loved the salsa options the habanero and tomatillo were my favorite two! Everyone at my table enjoyed thier meals and the drinks.Others had the vegatarian tacos , asada quesadillas, a chicken taco, a asada taco which they really liked, and a asada torta.We had the frozen margarita which was quite chunky (the ice) , however the one on the rocks was good and a decent amount of liquor in them. The Paloma spritz was quite tasty too.This is counter service restaurant where you order get a number and they bring it out to your table …. if something is needed after food is dropped you have to get up and get it. However, The staff was nice each interaction we had and the food came out pretty quickly.“

This time we ordered to go and ate in the car because we had our dog and it was too hot for us and her to sit on the patio. We arrived around 11:20a and were able to order quickly. The food was ready in about 10 minutes. We prefer the traditional style with with suiza sauce and the food was tasty as usual! It was a bit spicier than we remembered but also we weren’t getting refilled drinks in our car lol so that was probably the difference. We did miss having the chips and salsa we would’ve had if we sat down, but all in all, wonderful as always and we’re already looking forward to our next visit!“
