FAQs  If you haven't been down to see us yet, here are some things you might need to know:

  • Location:  If you're having a hard time finding us on your GPS, use the address 840 Manly St and then turn onto Mill Works (the street name was changed recently).  We are in the red warehouse with Hoots directly behind Quality Glass off of Northwest Blvd.
  • Parking:  You can park in the parking lot off of Mill Works, anywhere off of Bridge Street, on Canal Street, or on the weekends in the parking lot adjacent to the Gashopper.
  • Reservations:  We accept limited reservations for large parties, but otherwise are first-come, first-served.  Please call (336)893-8361 during our business hours to inquire about reservations.
  • Wait Times:  The Porch is small, and at peak meal times there can be a wait for a table, which we hate because we know you're hungry!  We are less busy before 12 pm, after 1 pm, and on the weekends before 6 pm and after 8 pm.  There are lots of hours in the day when all of the tables are free, so feel free stop by sometime to check it out before coming during a busy weekend dinner!
  • Dietary Needs:  We have many menu items that are or can be made vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free or all of the above.  Please inquire if you don't see something that fits your dietary needs as we are almost always able to customize your meal.
  • Allergies:  The Porch does prepare dishes with nuts, shellfish, and other foods that may affect individuals with food allergies.  PLEASE use caution if you have a food allergy, and certainly let our staff know of any allergies you have. 
  • Service:  The Porch is semi-self service.  In an effort to keep our prices low while serving very high quality food, we do not have traditional waiters, and we do ask that you place your order at the register.  Once you do that, you can relax and enjoy yourself - we're happy to bring your food to you, refill your drinks, clean up after you, and generally do anything and everything we can to make sure you have a great time at The Porch.  Just flag someone down if you need any little thing & we'll do our best to make it happen!
  • Thank You:  We love to hear your advice, opinions & ideas, so keep 'em coming.  The Porch is a work in progress, and we're just getting started, so thank you for all of your encouragement and understanding as we navigate our way!


What is The Porch?
  • A laid-back Tex-Mex restaurant where you can have breakfast & lunch every day, dinner on the weekends & Sunday Brunch.
  • A place to pick up prepared meals from our Grab & Go coolers for your family or friends anytime you need one, grab a fresh salad on the go for lunch, or pick up a bottle of wine on your way to a party. 
  • The place where your Dinners on the Porch meals are being made with love!
  • A place where kids are welcome - we'll keep them busy!
  • A mellow spot to hang out and read the paper while enjoying a Krankies latte and a Be Nice Bagel.
  • A fun Cantina where we'll make awesome cocktails & margaritas and have great beer and wine - plus, the bar's open late on the weekends!
  • An easy-going scene where you'll feel right at home in jeans and flip-flops, your favorite going-out clothes, or your running shorts.

We'll be open Tuesday - Sunday:
  • Tuesday - Thursday 8 am to 9 pm
  • Friday & Saturday 8 am to 10 pm
  • Sunday Brunch 11-3

Where to find us:

We are in the red warehouse at 840 Mill Works St, right off of Northwest Blvd behind the Quality Glass Company.  We're in the same building with the Hoots Roller Bar, but you go in a different door.  Here's a picture of the building and the door you go in, since people sometimes get in the parking lot and then don't see where to go in.  We're working on more signs, but just in case!  (call me if you get lost & I'll come wave you down - 745-8300)
