Red’s Porch’s Shutters
Comfort food patio restaurant mini-chain Red’s Porch, known for its menu of Southern, Texan, and Tex-Mex fare, is closing up two of its locations. The Quarry restaurant on West Braker Lane is shuttering on Saturday, August 10, while the Round Rock location appears to have closed already without any notice sometime in June. The original restaurant on South Lamar, which opened in 2009 from founder Davis Tucker, remains open. He also runs North by Northwest Brewing Co., which closed its West Slaughter Lane location earlier this year.
