  • David's is opening a restaurant in Maumelle later this spring, and also has its eye on the River Market.

It is not a done deal yet, but Arkansas chain David's Burgers is hoping to move into the River Market, into the space now occupied by Boulevard Bread. Don't panic, Boulevard lovers! According to Ryan Rooney, marketing director for David's Burgers, should the deal go through, Boulevard would likely take over the large space once occupied by Coast Cantina. Coast Cantina, an original vendor at the market, has left.

Rooney said David's has got a lot going on the grill, including its new restaurant at 102 Country Club in Maumelle that will open later this spring and two others, one in Cabot and one in the Gateway Town Center, to open in 2016.

"We're still working on it," Rooney said. "We would love to be down there." He said the restaurant has gotten a "warm welcome." 

David's Burgers, developed by the same family that helped start CJ's Butcher Boys in Russellville, opened first in Conway. It now has restaurants in North Little Rock at 3510 Landers Road and in Little Rock at 101 S. Bowman Road and the Park Plaza Mall. David's also has a food truck for special occasions: One of those occasions was after the tornado that leveled Vilonia, when David's gave away $10,000 in food to storm victims, Rooney said.
