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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
