Had lunch there today with my wife and it was great. I hadn't been there for many years but as I remember they had some great BBQ, they didn't disappoint today for sure. We had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches and they were fantastic. With sides of cornbread, baked beans and fried okra we couldn't go wrong. Will definitely be back.

We stopped in for coffee and were delighted to have great coffee at this independent coffee shop. The person working was very knowledgeable about the town and made a great latte. The location is awesome, right on the main street in town. We will definitely stop the next time we are in Austin!

What a delightful place in which to share lunch with a friend! Warning: You MUST have time for a very, long lunch. The place is small--cozy-small; the pace is slow--relaxing-slow. The salads we ate were works of art with almost each strawberry placed in just the perfect position. They were delicious with fresh ingredients. People have lots of time for good conversations and no one is rushed. Table space is limited, but once you're seated, stop the hurrying around and just enjoy a peaceful, tasty "live-to-eat, not eat-to-live" meal.

We like Perkins but this one one the food was ok the service was great. I through the price was a little high as you can go to Bob Evans and get the same type food for less.

Well we wanted to go somewhere special for dinner for a birthday. We got seated right away but waited 30 min. before we got served. I ordered prime rib and the others ordered a small steak and a hamburger. The food was not very tasty and it came for the most part all at once. The salad, soup and the steak. I ordered a glass of wine and first came a empty glass and no wine. Asked if I had asked for a empty glass? Then about 10 min. later the wine came in a small container. At the end of the meal the server came over and said they were sorry but it was a busy nite. She was about 70 years old. The food was not that great and the price was very high for what we got. Won't come back!

I had a party melt with fries, everyone else has the pulled pork special. The good was satisfying, with amounts that you will not go away hungry. The beers are so cold, there is ice chunks! That is a big plus in my book. This...MoreWonderful! Thank you for taking the time to share. I look forward to sharing your kind experience with our entire team. We hope to see you again soon.

I try to eat healthy so I'm typically wary of the classic diner, but Kenny's had a huge menu with a handful of lite options. The chicken breast was tasty, and the breadsticks that came with it weren't the fresh-bread-drenched-in-butter style of breadsticks, but instead the cracker sticks (which were delicious). I can definitely see why it's a popular spot with the locals.
