Flower Mound’s hottest entertainment district is about to get a big upgrade. RW F&B, which manages the newly renamed River Walk Social, is announcing plans to roll out five new restaurants in the coming months:
Underdogs Burgers & Brew: This family-oriented sports bar will feature a large indoor and outdoor kids play area. Burgers will be the star of the show, using 100% Texas Wagyu Beef from HeartBrand Beef, which is not only a healthier choice but some of the best and most flavorful beef in the world. There will be a dozen gourmet burger builds, sandwiches, wings, salads plus an extensive kids menu. Everything in this scratch kitchen is made fresh, including a variety of house-made sauces for wings and burgers.
Pennywise: Traditional English pub Pennywise will feature a European beer selection (including beer flights) and hand-selected craft cocktails. A limited menu will feature traditional English dishes such as bangers and mash, steak and ale pie, fish and chips and a Monte Cristo sandwich. The bar will feature traditional English pub décor so guests feel as if they’ve been transported to London.
Pie Hole Pizza: Expect exciting, gourmet pizza builds in addition to traditional pies at this brick-oven pizza shop that will focus on pick-up and delivery orders with an intimate area for dine-in service. The restaurant will serve 14-inch pies along with sandwiches, salads, beer and wine. Pizza dough will be house-made, and all menu items will be made from scratch using premium ingredients.
Sugar Fix: This coffee/gelato/mini-doughnut bar will feature an 18-flavor gelato case and high-end coffees. Cold brew, hot drip coffee, espresso and espresso-based drinks, and iced coffee will all be available.
Whiskey and Smoke: A smokehouse and bourbon bar with table service, Whiskey and Smoke will feature brisket, St. Louis-style ribs, pulled pork, chicken, smoked sausage and a range of side dishes with twists on the traditional. The scratch kitchen will not only make all signature sauces and rubs in house, but will house-cure and smoke their own pastrami and artisan bacon. The bourbon bar will offer high-end cocktails, including some that are smoked, and bourbon flights. The south side of the building will have a pickup window for family-style to-go packs.
Greg Retz, CEO of RW F&B, is working to ensure seamless dining experiences for the fans of the River Walk entertainment and dining destination, which has been rebranded as River Walk Social. Existing brands Scout and Primo’s MX Kitchen & Lounge will continue to operate until the new concepts replace them.
“We feel these new restaurant concepts will really resonate with residents of Flower Mound and the surrounding areas,” Said Retz. “As we redefine River Walk Social, we are focused on creating the most exciting dining destination in the region and plan to become an integrated fixture in the community.”
As a part of that commitment to the local diner, Retz will host a series of private menu tasting experiences designed to fine-tune the menus for the soon-to-come new venues that invite area residents and diners to have a voice in the future of these restaurants.
And even during transition, River Walk Social will maintain its commitment to special events designed to engage the community. In addition to a free Christmas event this weekend, it will offer fireworks from the development on New Year’s Eve.
