The waitstaff rolled their eyes at me (literally) on several occasions when I asked about gluten free cross-contamination prevention. They don't exercise it so it's not Celiac safe to eat at any Kerbey Lane.
Kerbey Lane is an Austin icon. That being said, it's not Celiac safe, and they've transformed from a cheap all night eatery to a borderline soulless boogie strip mall establishment where everything is overpriced and underwhelming. The attitude of the wait staff when asked about cross-contamination, etc. is flippant.
— Not at all
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
Great pancakes, awesome service, but be careful and ask questions — they have fries marked gluten free but they are made in the same fryer as everything else!
Excellent food. Safe experience.
I love Kerby Ln gluten free enchiladas, queso and chips. I’ve eaten this dish many times and never got sick. Love the service and atmosphere too.
My first time here was great. Sat at the bar and had the Greek chicken. They subbed out pita bread for cucumbers for my hummus. Delicious! My second time was breakfast - they didnt sub out the English muffin for toast even though my ticket did say gluten free sub on it-so totally kitchen's fault. Luckily I caught it and sent it back. Makes me a little nervous to eat there again
Fluffy GF pancakes, and didn't get sick. Buying a box of GF pancake mix to go is just under $4 and tastes great.
I was so excited for GF pancakes, but they said they're cooked on the same grill space as regular pancakes. Waiter advised me against. Food was good otherwise- had the migas.
Best chicken tortilla soup (minus taco strips as they're cooked in a shared fryer) I can recall ever eating. GF bread for my sandwich was actually tasty.
They have a dedicated GF menu but label it "Gluten Free-ish" and warn that cross contamination may occur. That being said I had the nacho chips and queso as an appetizer and the chicken enchiladas for my lunch and I has no problems at all. Very tasty!
Wonderful accommodating restaurant with a huge allergy-friendly menu and a very good understanding of food intolerances. And the food was so, so good! We visited three times while vacationing in the Round Rock area.
Yesterday I discovered Kirby Lane does not have a dedicated fryer for anything. Which is something they don’t advertise. So if you’re vegan or gluten free, ask a LOT of questions. They advertise fried foods as gluten free and this is a lie. A lie that made me sick.
Nice place and good gluten free options. The enchilada was delicious! Although they have put the regular pancake together with the gluten free for the first time , but they made the gluten free again for me as I requested.
It's hard not to love Kerbey Lane. All of the wait staff I've encountered have been well versed in what they have available for gluten free items and it's quite a lot. They even have GF French toast!
Ordered gluten free pancakes and they brought regular pancakes. Then they took a long time to bring the GF pancakes. My husband was done with his breakfast by the time I got mine. Pancakes weren’t bad.
This location once claimed to have dedicated cooking and prep surfaces for GF items. This is absolutely no longer the case. The servers seemed very unfamiliar with which items were or were not GF, and served both my partner and me gluten pancakes after we informed them of an allergy. Not safe at all.
Lots of selections any time of day. Wait staff and kitchen don’t always communicate well so double check things when they arrive. My omelet arrived with the sour cream sauce (not GF), sent back for a redo but waiter placed side dish container back on the plate that still had the sour cream sauce all over the side.
Kerbey has gluten feee pancakes and other offerings. If you ask them to avoid cross contamination they will explain the precautions they take. They even informed me that my omelet had a sauce with gluten and offered to sub out a gluten free sauce.
kerbey lane has updated their menu to not the gf choices. i haven't seen that gluten free-ish menu in a while. they offer a different gf pancake every week. they have a gf bread for sandwiches, toast and french toast. vegetarian options too. i usually get the pancakes - they will remind you of ihop or cracker barrell- this location has that lamar vibe. wait an average of 30 minutes when i'm here on the weekends. well worth it.
There is not a huge selection. Do be sure to get absolute confirmation that what arrives at your table is GF. I ordered a GF sandwich and questioned the waitress if indeed the bread was GF. She said that she was sure that it was, but another waiter overheard and took a look and let me know that what was on my plate was not GF bread. I was very glad I asked for confirmation
Food here is amazing, but nothing on their menu is actually safe. They have a small kitchen and say they'll "do their best", but can guarantee it won't be contaminated. Points for their honesty, but I am sadly not able to eat here anymore.
The omelet I ordered was alright. I could have made better at home honestly. I have to agree with the other reviews that said they don't pay attention to cross contamination. I had a small portion of the gluten free pancakes and had a bad reaction. I would not return here.
Not at all GF even though they have GF menu and GF pancakes. They make everything on the same cooktop and can't even make some eggs in a separate pan. Very sad.
What is "gluten free-ish"???? Never seen this at a restaurant and it does NOT instill confidence!!!!
They have everything. Besides the traditional breakfast stuff for all who don't (have to) take care of ingredients they have glutenfree stuff (for example very good pancakes), vegan stuff, all you can think of and very knowledgeable staff. PERFECT!!
Kind of tired seeing restarunts on here that truley shouldn't be on here. They have a gluten free-ish menu that on the bottom states celiacs should not order from it. Another place to cross of the list. Pics included.
I asked for a gluten free menu and they gave me a "gluten free-ish" menu. Yes, that's what it said, and at the bottom is a big paragraph about how you shouldn't order off their gluten free-ish menu if you have real issues with gluten. That's when we should have just left. But we were hoping to make the best of it. I then asked about the gluten free pancakes if they could be made dairy free also since they do have vegan pancakes and was told they couldn't do that. Seriously?! You have gluten free pancakes and vegan pancakes but you can't do gluten free, dairy free pancakes?! Buy some Rice milk. It's not that complicated. So I ended up just ordering a fruit bowl which is great if you like apples. That's what they brought me: a bowl of apples with the peel still on them. $5. My husband who is not Gluten free or dairy free ordered scrambled eggs. They asked if he wanted cheese sprinkled on top. He said yes, not knowing that would be another 75 cents. So if you do gluten free as a lifestyle choice and don't mind getting nickle and dimed for everything, go ahead and eat here. But if gluten is a real problem for you, I don't recommend Kerbey Lane.
