Much love for this cozy 24-7-365 diner and its excellent seasonal menu - if you see something you like, order it, and don't cry when you come in searching for that sandwich again - it may have been retired from play. Highlights are pancakes and queso - and no, please don't combine the two. From burgers to bahn mi, KLC will please all picky eaters, from kids to vegan n vegetarians to gluten- free. The different locations have different vibes. This KLC on Guadalupe can be clogged with students at times.

Kerbey Lane Cafe has the best queso in town, hands down. Why no one else ever thought of drowning a creamy, green spicy hunk of guacamole in melted cheese is, frankly speaking, beyond me. Combine that with fresh tortilla chips dripping in squeezed lime juice and you've got your ticket to Tex-Mex heaven. My personal fave is the baked potato omelet, a three egg stroke of genius which includes sour cream, chives and real bits of bacon. Throw the Kerbey Lane Queso and the baked potato omelet together with a couple of mimosas and you've got a guaranteed hangover cure, ya'll.

Kerbey Lane is an Austin classic and rightfully so. They have been serving great food for years and have been serving it 24 hours a day. While the service can be a little aloof at times, the breakfast food like pancakes and breakfast tacos are always a hit. Another favorite of mine is the large entree salads. I like the guadalupe location because they can accommodate a large group.Recommended for:Foodies

Kerbey Lane used to be one of my favorite Austin restaurants. Unfortunately I think their food isn't as good anymore, or maybe my nostalgia just wore off. They seem to be more focused on catering to what is trendy and cool rather than on food quality.

Direct competitor of Magnolia Cafe, they even offer many of the same pancake flavors, though Kerbey has mix you can buy and take home to make later. The main difference between the two that makes Austinites pick one or the other is the queso. Kerbey queso is white cheese, Magnolia's mag mud the standard queso color.

I miss Kerbey Lane! I have such fond memories of breakfasts here after wild party nights, or midnight queso munching. That queso was so good! They also had very good pancakes. I have to make a trip back here again...

As a teenage vegetarian seeking late-night eats after concerts, this 24-7 diner was the holy land. Years later, I still think it's pretty damn cool. With a core menu ranging from tex-mex to all-day breakfast and regular diner fare with a flare, this is definitely a great pick for picky eaters or feeding a diverse group. They use local produce and coffee when available, have a seasonal menu to supplement that staples, and beers on tap. Oh, and did I mention the pancakes? Kerbey is unmatched for their pancake-crafting with "regular," vegan and gluten free options! With a lot of other spots in town, we still go there most Sundays for brunch in spite of 1.5 hour waits -- it's that good!Recommended for:Vegetarian
