Smoked meats, boozy slushees, rad veggies, chill vibes.
Loro is an Asian smokehouse and bar brought to you by the award-winning chefs behind Uchi and Franklin Barbecue. Together, they merged their love of Asian cuisine and Texas barbecue to offer innovative dishes you won’t find anywhere else. So come on by, kick back, and stay awhile.
Meats smoked daily
Low & slow is the only way to go.
We begin slow cooking our meats every day at midnight, so it's ready for lunch the next day. Most of our meats are finished over post oak wood on our open fire grill, giving each piece a little more flavor.
Veggies everyone will love.
Our vegetable dishes are made with the same creativity, care and quality as our smoked meats. So tasty, they will satisfy even the most carnivorous tendencies.
Kick back, relax, and stay awhile.
Dog-friendly patios, community tables, and an atmosphere of good cheer make for a laid-back vibe. No need to make a reservation, because we don't take them.
Texas Barbecue + Far East Flavors
In 2018, Aaron Franklin, of Franklin Barbecue and Tyson Cole, of Uchi, merged their love of Asian and Texas cuisine together to create Loro.

Love this place so much! Genius concept. The Asian smokehouse style is so good. Still great bbq meat but with a light refreshing twist. The veg dishes and salads are some of my favorites. The food always comes so fast too! Get Aaron Franklin bbq without the line! Great happy hour deals too. lots of seating options! Order at the bar. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Go with a group so you can try lots!Stephanie O.
Hands down one of the best Asian fusion restaurants I’ve been to. The bartenders and their service is phenomenal. Going back very soon. Another win for hai hospitality and one for the austinites in dtx!! Thanks for bringing Loro closer to me.Tibin P.
A great Asian BBQ fusion restaurant and Bar. Great relaxed atmosphere where outdoor seating under trees and fans to keep you tool. The food is delish. It’s family style sharing. You order at the bar and they bring it out to you. The bar also has a great selection of alcoholic drinks. This is definitely a great spot for afternoon or evening hangout.Christian M.
Wow! Love this place. Very reasonably priced, nice staff, cool calm and collective environment… and the FOOD! We ordered some drinks and 3 dishes. Also, the staff was so excited to share a few of their favorite dishes, just to get our honest opinion. Hands down, best restaurant experience, anywhere in the country, in years. Love that y’all are in my city as well. Will be back. Highly recommend!Chris B.
Love Loro. Inside and outside space is perfect for hanging out. Menu is very varied, offering something for everyone. You can get a more substantial meal, as well as tasty and fresh veggie dishes and salads. The hush puppies (corn fritters?) are heavenly. Try the cabbage salad, grilled snap peas, and sesame rice noodles. The salmon is cooked to perfection. Bavette steak is delicious as well.Fernando C.
Loro is my favorite place when I travel to Austin for work. Within two weeks I ate there three times. The happy hour lets you have the delicious fried chicken sandwich and chicken karaage for a few dollars off each. The taste is amazing. There is a lot of outdoor seating and on a hot day there is a massive indoor section to cool off. The boozy slushees drinks are amazing during happy hour. Everything is good here and worth the full price. But if you can show up at 2PM might as well as save some money or order extra.Kellen M.
