A South Austin restaurant known for its Cajun, Tex-Mex and Southern fusion cuisine is planning to open its second location by early July in Northwest Austin.

Red’s Porch will be located overlooking Quarry Lake at 4200 W. Braker Lane, Austin, near Stonelake Boulevard, chef and Kitchen Manager Scot Loranc said. A soft opening could occur in mid-June, he said.

“Our sister company is [the nearby] North by Northwest, so the demographic is a good fit for a second location,” he said.

The menu and ambience will be similar to the restaurant’s original location on South Lamar Boulevard and focus on Cajun, Tex-Mex and Southern fusion cuisine, Loranc said. New menu items may include new brunch options as well as more smoked seafood, such as oysters and trout.

“We’re known for our smoked brisket,” he said. “… Our tacos are a big seller, and we have a nice blend of burgers with beef, brisket and chuck. It’s just a really nice, juicy burger.”

The indoor/outdoor bar will have 36 beers on draft as well as six wines on tap.

Similar to the south location, Red’s will be dog-friendly and have outdoors games set up, including washers, cornhole and giant Jenga, Loranc said. Future plans call for a playscape.

Loranc said Red’s will continue expanding over the next two years with locations planned for Round Rock and San Antonio.
