You can't go wrong with the everything hash browns! I can choose from sausage gravy or hollandaise (I get sausage) cooked to perfection and Oh So yummy! Quaint 50's feel. Great service too

Nice little surprise. Decided to go to Austin for lunch & found Kenny’s in an Internet search. Did not figure out why it is called Oak Grill, but food was delicious! Will definitely go back again!

Went there for breakfast last Saturday. The service was awesome, with our waitress accommodating several requests for custom omelets and extra condiments - all with a cheerful and welcoming attitude. Coffee and water were replenished frequently and the food was delicious. Will definitely go back...More

It may be a new site, (only 20 years or so at this location), but it's the same great good you remember 30 years ago..."cluckers, King James the first hamburger, Haddock dinner". Go, enjoy.

A classic diner decor along with great food at affordable prices. You feel your back in the 50s with a variety of Austin memorabilia on the walls.

Great location in the middle of Austin with great food and service. A 50's / 60's themed eatery with great decor as well. I've eaten lunch here a number of times and have never been disappointed - I will certainly continue to eat here.More

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...More

Kenny's Oak Grill is a restaurant. The bathrooms are clean and have the required items-soap, water and hand dryers. Not sure why you would expect a pool and spa. I think you are thinking of the wrong place.
