SAN ANTONIO – A popular Austin-based restaurant known for its made-from-scratch comfort food like queso and dessert-like pancakes has opened up its first San Antonio location.
The restaurant at 5515 N. Loop 1604 West, Ste. 103 at The Rim Crossing is the first Kerbey Lane Cafe outside the Austin area in its 40-plus year history.
The restaurant opened its doors on Aug. 15 for a “soft opening” that will continue through Aug. 28 as the staff gets trained. During the soft opening period, the restaurant will have shortened operating hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and a limited menu and will give guests 50% off food and non-alcoholic beverages. Seating is first-come, first-served.
“We’ve been flippin’ pancakes and slingin’ queso for the Austin community since 1980,” CEO Mason Ayer said in a press release. “We are so thrilled to bring our homemade food and local comfort to our neighbors in San Antonio, where we hope to become just as quintessential to the SA community as we are to our customers in Austin. We are so happy to add San Antonio to our family!”
Kerbey Lane is still hiring staff. Potential applicants can get more information online.
The restaurant’s official opening will be on Aug. 29.
