Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan labeled on the menu. They also have a supplemental guide to tell you how to change other menu items to make them safe too.

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.

They have a gluten free-ish menu that at the bottom says celiacs should not order from it. Why even bother saying you have a gluten free menu? 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.

The apple cinnamon gluten free pancakes were delicious and passed the Celiac test. They warn that they cannot guarantee total gluten free, but this time was good.

I give it 5 stars but beware of cc. I've never gotten sick from it but I've heard of others who have. You need to discuss with the server before ordering. Oh and my #1 reason for going there: Kerbey Queso!!!!! It rocks!!!

“GF” on their menu only means “no gluten ingredients.” They need special instructions if you have celiac. For example, one of my favorite dishes is the pan seared salmon. You need to tell them to use a separate pan for the salmon, otherwise it is cooked on the same cooktop as everything else. And substitute another vegetable for the Brussels sprouts, which are fried in the same fryer as gluten items. A manager named Sam was very helpful in letting me know the need modifications. I assume that anything like GF pancakes also needs to be cooked separately.

We had Migas with Cashew Queso. They were delicious and we felt great after eating them. We have allergies and are aware of dairy and gluten in food within a bite or two. The food was excellent!

Gluten free options are prepared in the same areas as everything else, if you are celiac do not eat here.

Asked about the pancakes and was told that if I could actually not eat gluten not to order them. Ordered eggs instead (without any flour added to the mix). Still got sick.

Service was ok, wait staff was nice. This place is extremely loud.

This is my third time getting sick at Kerbey Lane. I went to Round Rock on a girls weekend with my friends. Years ago I’d been to Kerbey Lane and got sick, but at the time I’d just been diagnosed wit CD. A few years ago I went and ordered fried items because I didn’t understand cross contamination. This time, I was sure I’d be OK because I’m knowledgeable, I advocate for myself, and I called ahead and spoke w a manager. They told me who would be working when I got there the next day so I could speak with them and they could watch my order from start to finish. After speaking with him while there, he said the only things really safe for a celiac were breakfast tacos on corn tortilla or chili pie. Since it was 8:15pm, I went with chili pie. Within an hour i was cramping. If you have CD, don’t eat here. They mean well, but nothing is actually safe.

Their gluten-free food should not be advertised. I get sick everytime I try to eat there. The waitstaff looks put-off when I tell them. They cross-contaminate all the time. Tastes like cardboard. Very unhappy. Won't go back.
