It’s time for another round of Fayetteville restaurant news.

A new pizzeria is coming to Dickson Street.

Marley’s Chicago Style Pizzeria, a company that also operates a location in Tulsa, is planning to open a restaurant at 609 W. Dickson Street #103, inside The Dickson.

Note: An earlier version of this story stated that Marley’s would be located inside the building formerly home to The Phoenix. Sorry about that.

As the name indicates, the restaurant’s menu focuses on Chicago-style pizza, as well as some sandwiches, wraps, salads, and appetizers.

The restaurant, located at 557 S. School Ave., will focus on artisan pizzas made with locally-sourced ingredients, and to serve a healthy selection of local and regional craft beers.

A new shop that features frozen treats that are a cross between ice cream and the traditional shaved ice desserts popular in Hawaii and Asia is open behind Hunan Manor on Wedington Drive.

Bobo’s Ribbon Ice, located at 1155 N Tahoe Place, features all-natural ice cream with exotic flavors, toppings and drizzles.

According to a Flyer reader, the shop carries at least one flavor that sounded pretty unique to us – avocado.

Slim Chickens

Slim Chickens is now open on the west side of town.

The new restaurant opened Monday, June 16, and features a large outdoor patio, and a similar menu to other Slim Chickens locations in town. We did notice an addition, however. Chicken and waffles.

The new place also includes an updated look for the Fayetteville-based chain, with interior design by HGTV Design Star and Springdale native, Daniel Faires.
