Fred’s Texas Café announced this morning that it will open a third location in the space formerly occupied by Love Shack at 3505 Bluebonnet Circle, which closed last month. The new Fred’s Texas TCU will also take over the Oui Lounge, formerly operated by Tim Love’s management team, located next door. The restaurant and bar is anticipated to open in time for TCU football season.


“We have total respect for the heritage behind The Oui Lounge,” said Fred’s Texas Café owner Terry Chandler in a release. “We fully plan to incorporate some of the historical elements from The Oui in the new Fred’s Texas TCU.”


Kyle Poulson, managing partner for the property owners, said, “We couldn’t be more excited that Terry and Quincy will be bringing the Fred’s brand to the TCU area. Fred’s is an institution. It will be an incredible addition to the area and Bluebonnet Circle.”


This will be the third location for Fred’s Texas Café, with the decades-old original located at 915 Currie St. and Fred’s North at 2730 Western Center Blvd.
