One of the members behind East Austin barbecue restaurant EastSide Tavern is opening a new casual outdoor restaurant and bar in South Austin, as noted by an eagle-eyed tipster. Bouldin Acres is now open at 2027 South Lamar Boulevard in Zilker as of Thursday, January 23, 2020.

Co-owner Matthew Carter, who lives in the South Austin neighborhood, wanted to bring “approachable food back to that area” where people could have a “regular meal” in a “really cool outdoor environment,” as he told Eater. He’s partnering with Matt Davis on the restaurant.

As for food, the counter- and table-service menu will span different types of general foods, from burgers to tacos to pastrami sandwiches. This includes taco truck Pueblo Viejo. Drinks-wise, there will be cocktails (including EastSide’s popular frosé) and a large draft beer selection.

The space, which had been an automotive sales building, will feature all sorts of outdoor games, including pickleball courts and other lawn games. The name is a nod to Bouldin Creek, which is behind the restaurant.

Bouldin Acres is open at 11 a.m. daily.

EastSide Tavern opened in 2016 on East Cesar Chavez Street.
