If I had been allowed to do so, I would have moved into Kerbey Lane Cafe, like a stowaway on an 18th-century ocean voyage, hiding under tables and venturing forth whenever safe to steal whatever I could. As this did not seem a realistic option, what with my job expecting my return on Monday, I did the next best thing...I came to Kerbey Lane for BOTH days of my two-day Austin trip. Why bother going somewhere else when you have already discovered a place that sells $2 mimosas, migas (eggs with many Mexican-y things over tortilla chips), and gluten-free pumpkin French toast? If you answered, "There is absolutely no reason to go anywhere else," then you are absolutely correct.To begin, the mimosas. These were mimosas in only the loosest sense of the word, as they were really full glasses of champagne with a drop of orange food coloring poured on top. I feel I got my $2 worth.Moving onward, the migas. I had never experienced or even heard of migas before Kerbey Lane, but I am confused as to why more places have not yet discovered the brilliance of mixing all the delicious Mexican things with eggs and tortilla chips. Highly recommended.Next, the gluten-free pumpkin French toast. Yum? I can't really say anything else. Worth ordering. A lot.As I went back the next day, I can also speak to the pork tacos, which were as delicious as everything else. The prices were fantastic, the servers were friendly, and if you can somehow get out of doing your job or area already career-less, I highly recommend considering this as your new place of residence.
this place by far is the best seafood restaurant in Austin Texas and what I mean as I'm from the Chesapeake Bay Area which has lots of different seafood and these guys sold me soft shell crab at a reasonable price and my wife and I went to this restaurant and had an unbelievable dinner I recomme…
This was my first time eating at Perlas. Decor inside was clean and simple. White table clothes and good service. Our waiter was prompt, coureous and knowledgable.\r The salt and pepper Calamari was some of the best I have had. Fresh, light, not greasy with 2 delicious sauces to choose. The…
They need to enforce something so the parents stay w their kids. Some employees do not speak English at all. Therere is loud Music blasting throughout & by the registers, you can't speak to the cashies & they can't be heard. The attendant talks to you via microphone & they ask you to repeat yo…

Okay, so as you've probably heard, this place is in a sketchy gas station mini-mall. If I didn't know the real deal, I'd never go in. The thing is, the owner is a hell of a guy. He eats there and so does his family. If you're going there for the first time, try to memorize the faces of the staff. NO MATTER WHEN YOU GO BACK, THOSE WILL BE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THERE. If these people aren't all family of the owner, they must be best friends, because they're all working 12 hour shifts. I've been here for early lunch and late dinner on all sorts of days and nearly always have the same waitress. They actually seem to remember me -- on at least one occasion the waitress brought me my favorite beer without me even asking. We both laughed about it and she offered to take it back if I didn't want it, but of course I did. The reason I stress the owner and his family eating here and the staff never changing (I'll bet you they're all personally connected to the owner) is because the fish is fresh as can be. I lived in NYC and LA and I've visited Japan half a dozen times. I speak a weak Japanese and am married to a Japanese woman. I eat sushi roughly twice a week. I am, in short, the most discerning sushi critic one can find in America. For variety and quality, this place would be top-notch in NYC or Los Angeles. Uchi on Lamar is just overhyped because the environment is pretty. The very essence of sushi is experiencing the FOOD in its purest form -- so, like I said, close your eyes and EAT!
I went here with my family last week. I'm not a big fan of seafood, so I ordered their steak ($35) which incidentally are the most expensive items on the menu. I ordered it, as any experienced steak eater that is willing to foot the bill on a more pricey steak will, medium rare. Of course, it comes out well done.I'm disappointed, but my family was happy with their meals so I didn't say anything. I would give it 1 star due to their lack of ability to cook a $35 steak anywhere close to how I ordered, but my family was happy which makes me happy so I'm giving it 2 stars.The waitress was pleasant and proper, albeit inexperienced, so we left her a very nice tip. She did make some mistakes, such as not looking at my steak while I ate it, nor asking if it was to my liking. But as I said, my family was happy, and that's what was important to me.
Who would have thought that standing in line, peering through floor to ceiling windows, watching others eat what appear to be delicious burgers and fries, would be so fun? Hopdoddy is putting out the best burger in Austin currently, the local craft beer selection is not expansive, but, of high quality (enjoyed in line or sitting down), and the staff is consistently upbeat and positive - a great combination. For those who love a good cheeseburger, Hopdoddy sets the Austin baseline - it's a great bun made onsite, thick juicy patty, and a creatively satisfying, but not overwhelming, taste. The burger can be, at times, too juicy, making the bottom half of your bun turn slightly soggy - yep, it's getting that particular.
I'd considered my palate refined and sophisticated before patronizing Uchiko, but was not prepared for the explosion of flavor and deliciousness offered in every dish. Each small plate better than the last! Turns out, my palate was not the epicurean I claimed it to be. It'll be difficult to return to anything less now that I've experienced truly the upper echelon of great food. My impression of the food was matched only by the excellent service and attention to detail from the staff.
Last night was our first time at Sushi Junai 2; we've only been to the original once before. This new location is so nice: homey atmosphere, huge booths, and better parking. The food was phenomenal. When I first heard "All you can eat sushi" I was pretty skeptical, but this is some of the best I've ever had. All the wait staff was friendly and checked on us frequently. Less than 18 hours later, all five of us are sitting around wondering how soon we can go back.
Loved my first experience here! I came here with a visiting friend to get some queso with dinner, and it did not disappoint. We both fell in love with the Kerbey Queso - it had just right amount of thickness to it and mixed wonderfully with the guac. It was also served with salsa, and eating the chips with both the queso and salsa together was magic. We both have been dreaming about the queso ever since.
Came here for brunch, got a cocktail, ordered the brunch Jerk Chicken and the Shells&Cheese with the sausage.Place is very busy and very popular: staff seem a little stretched.The Devil's cocktail was tasty: the Shells&Cheese was undercooked (or very very very al-dente) with bland cheese sauce, and he jerk chicken was forgotten by the kitchen. It eventually showed up. Tasted like chicken LOLOh well.
this place by far is the best seafood restaurant in Austin Texas and what I mean as I'm from the Chesapeake Bay Area which has lots of different seafood and these guys sold me soft shell crab at a reasonable price and my wife and I went to this restaurant and had an unbelievable dinner I recommend them to anybody that one seafood in town of Austin they by far our number one in my book
Healthy delicious food! I have been enjoying Two Hot Mama's creamy cilantro salsa for years. Now I can buy it and other delicious salsa at the the actual restaurant. We enjoyed crispy corn tortillas topped with grilled vegetables, rice, corn and black bean salsa...YUM YUM! Each diner can create their own culinary masterpiece. Which suits my family to a tee.
