The Abel’s brand will expand north and south soon. Twin brothers Ellis and Austin Winstanley plan to open Abel’s North Grill and Tap House on Oct. 26 at 4001 W. Parmer Lane in the space previously occupied by Cool River. The restaurant will have more than 60 draft beers and a menu similar to Abel’s on the Lake, with a few additional items, including bone-in steaks. The restaurant will feature a 7,000-square-foot dining area and eight banquet rooms.
Early next year the brothers plan to open Abel’s Rib House at 2330 S. Lamar Blvd. where Artz Rib House once stood. Ellis Winstanley says Abel’s Rib House will serve traditional barbecue fare (beef and pork ribs, turkey, chicken and sausage), as well as burgers and salads. The table-service restaurant will have an outdoor-indoor bar and private banquet rooms and offer dozens of draft beers.
