When The Box, long one of Little Rock's finest purveyors of delicious greasy burgers, closed shop on South Main Street last April to make room for a USA Drug, owner Kelly Joiner promised to reopen in the old Wooley Electric Supply building on the corner of Seventh and Ringo by June 2010. More than a year later, just when we were beginning to despair, we heard Joiner tell KUAR's Ron Breeding that the restaurant is just weeks away from opening. The delay stemmed from re-plumbing, rewiring and installing new floors, Joiner said. Old-line Box fans worried that the magic will be gone, take heart: The grill and fryer from the South Main location are moving to Seventh Street.
This week's update on Browning's Mexican Grill's incremental opening: At press time, the restaurant remained open only for dinner, from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. daily serving a limited menu. The full menu might debut by Wednesday according to a Browning's employee and lunch could begin by the end of the week, but that was the word last week, too.
