Update: Luscher’s Red Hots did more business in three hours yesterday than in a single day for nearly six months. Due to the fact that they’ve been cleaned out of food, the restaurant will close on Sunday instead of Tuesday. R.I.P. Uncle Herky.
Sad news from Deep Ellum today. Brian Luscher is pulling the plug on his famous Luscher’s Red Hots. “We gave it our best shot,” Luscher says. “I couldn’t be more thankful for the help and support of our family and friends and Red Hot fans our landlord Scott Rohrman and 42 Real Estate. They did everything they could to set us up for success. But it just wasn’t in the cards. ” What’s next? “We’ll see what the restaurant gods have in store for us.”
Get down there before Tuesday and give them a hell of a send-off.
Frankfurter fanatics and Uncle Herky devotees head on over to Luscher’s Red Hots (2653 Commerce) as Chef/Owner Brian C. Luscher serves-up his final Post Oak Red Hots at the Deep Ellum eatery through Tuesday, December 13. This is the last chance to eat at Luscher’s which will close December 14.
“Everyone is invited to come bid Luscher’s adieu with a final Uncle Herky and a beer,” says Chef Brian. “I am so proud of all we accomplished with Luscher’s. The food and our team are on point and we are truly honored for all of the accolades and attention garnered during our two year run. We gave it everything we’ve got.”
Luscher will continue to focus and grow Post Oak Red Hots LLC., which provides the all-natural sausages to area restaurants and retail locations as well as oversee operations at The Grape.
