  • 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.

  • Atmosphere was exceptional, great music, great vibes, and great people. They have so much space it's understandable why they do not have reservations. Do yourself a favor and try something different from their Asian BBQ Fusion. Each meat is moist, tender, and unlike any flavor you have tried before.

  • 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.
