Full disclosure: I attended a menu tasting at Kerbey Lane and received a complimentary tasting. All opinions are my own.
Kerbey Lane is an Austin staple. But in most people’s minds (and previously my own) Kerbey Lane is a breakfast or brunch hot spot. But dinner? It’s probably not a top choice for a great evening meal and a few drinks.
On top of the fantastic food, we also found out that Kerbey Lane has a great wine and beer selection at the best happy hour prices I’ve seen around town!
My recommendation, grab a drink and dive into one of Kerbey Lane’s seasonal menu offerings! You won’t regret it and I guarantee you Kerbey Lane will become much more than your go-to hangover spot.
My personal favorite from Kerbey Lane’s Spring Menu was the Naked Chile Rellano — it’s a healthier version of Chile Rellano.
The stuffed pepper is roasted rather than deep fried and rather than a smothering of cheese, this had a sprinkling of blue cheese & cotija, all set in a sour cream sauce. It was also served with huge slices of avocado and cilantro rice which I couldn’t get enough of!
<3M’s favorite of the evening was the Jalapeno Bacon Mac & Cheese Bites — deep fried Mac & Cheese stuffed with spicy jalapenos and bursting with bacon.
The Mac & Cheese Bites were served with a spicy jalapeno sauce — much like the Dona Sauce all of Austin’s TacoDeli fans are obsessed with. Spice + Cheese+ Bacon = Yum!
I also enjoyed the Corn Chowder which was light and not too thick with a great sweet corn taste! The grilled corn on top was also a great added touch!
Much of the Spring Menu highlights beef or brisket so here’s a few other favorites from our evening tasting of Kerbey Lane’s Spring Menu!
