It is actually cheaper to cross Lamar and get something at Whole Foods and eat it out front. lol. But I don't think 24 is any more expensive than Katz was. Katz was kinda high too. And the food and milkshakes and tea at 24 is really dang good. So it is worth it to me.
The last few times I have taken early AM trips to Kirby Lane I have been a bit disappointed in the food. =( Though to be fair that has been a while. Before they moved the south location.
last time i was in austin i took my mom and sister and her kids to the new kerbey lane on lamar. the hostesses were kinda lame. they didn't smile and when one of my cute little nephews approached them at the counter trying to interact with them they just stared down at him as if they were grossed out by him. one of the strangest experiences ever at kerbey lane.
my sister looked a bit bothered by it. but we all enjoyed the food.
they were probably college kids and were from another part of the country because people from austin will most likely smile and interact with you. i mean, it's very rare to meet people like that. the waitress was way more friendly with us and teased my niece and nephew even when they were starting to get a bit spoiled.
but yeah, i prefer magnolia's, especially the one of Lake Austin. boy the memories, going there passed midnight and eating some french toast!
