Work to rebuild the bar, billiards and burger joint Midtown Billiards, 1316 Main St., Little Rock, gutted by a Sept. 19 fire, has gone more slowly than expected, says general manager David Shipps, but all will be in readiness for the June 30 grand reopening, 3 p.m-5 a.m. Tickets -- $20 for happy hour, $25 for late-night, available online at -- guarantee membership in the private club; the late-night ticket includes the cover charge for the opening-night band and a free commemorative Midtown Sharpie.

Restaurant Transitions: Zaxby's coming to Little Rock; Gandolfo's opens today; Burger 21 on Chenal to debut soon

posted: 06/15/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Last week we reported that there is, at last, a west Little Rock Taco Bueno outlet on the starting blocks. On the heels of that news we got word that Georgia-based Zaxby's -- the other fast-casual chain that we get asked about a lot and that has been circling the center of central Arkansas -- last week filed for a plumbing permit with the state Health Department for a restaurant at 10601 Kanis Road, Little Rock, near the Panera Bread and Dunkin' Donuts at Kanis and Shackleford Road. Zaxby's has seven central Arkansas locations, including in Benton, Bryant, Conway, Maumelle, Sherwood and Jacksonville.

Restaurant Transitions: Taco Bueno in west Little Rock; Osaka, Desi Den closed

posted: 06/08/2017 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

Those who have been itching to have a Taco Bueno closer to the center of central Arkansas while the Farmers Branch, Texas-based chain has been spotting outlets around the metro area periphery (including Conway, Maumelle and southwest Little Rock) may have to wait a little longer, but perhaps not much longer. An application is pending with Little Rock Planning and Development seeking a site plan review for an outparcel restaurant building in the western part of the Markham Center Square shopping center parking lot, 9101 W. Markham St. at John Barrow Road. (That'd put it in front of the Burlington Coat Factory store, if that helps you place it a little better.)
