The Box, home of one of Little Rock's best burgers, is leaving its dimly lit, cinder-block home at 1623 Main St. on June 18. But fear not, lovers of dives and delicious, greasy food. The restaurant is taking its cooks, menu and grill to Seventh and Ringo, where owner Kelly Joiner hopes to open anew — but in the same willfully dive-y manner — by the end of June. The Box is open 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 372-8735.
Two much-anticipated chains on opposite ends of the health foods spectrum opened recently. In West Little Rock, the city's first Buffalo Wild Wings franchise is serving the hordes at 14800 W. Cantrell Road, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. Sunday. The phone number is 868-5279. “All-natural” yogurt chain Red Mango offers parfaits, smoothies and such in the Heights, at 5621 Kavanaugh. The store, open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, bills itself as “the fastest-growing retailer of all-natural non-fat yogurt in the United States.” (As opposed to Orange Leaf Yogurt, coming soon to the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center, which says it's simply “the fastest growing frozen yogurt chain” in the country.)
