The Town of Warsaw is pleased to announce the expansion of three new restaurants and an arcade space. Old Rappahannock Taphouse will be located at 130 Main Street in the heart of historic downtown Warsaw. The restaurant will feature an arcade, multiple TV’s for sports enthusiasts, live music and events, and will be open seven days a week with a broad range of menu items. The restaurant is located adjacent to Northern Neck Popcorn Bag and will be connected by an interior hallway to Burke’s Jewelers, Old Rappahannock Brewery, and a soon to be filled tenant space.

The second restaurant is Dairy Queen, set to be located in the former KFC space at 5031 Richmond Road. This location is a Grill & Chill, featuring lunch and dinner options, along with their mainstay items of blizzards, ice cream cakes, and various desserts. Town Manager, Joseph Quesenberry, stated that this redevelopment has been in the works for years. “From my first day on the job over three years ago, this site has been a priority for both Town Council and staff. Redeveloping the former KFC site to something that both town residents and visitors alike can enjoy is exciting for us, particularly with an established national brand like Dairy Queen,” he said.

The third restaurant coming to Warsaw is South of the Border on Main, providers of authentic Mexican-style food. With the locations in Williamsburg and Pueblo Azteca in Tappahannock, the owners plan to relocate the Tappahannock restaurant and rebrand it to match the existing Williamsburg restaurant. The location will offer lunch and dinner, with a full lunch buffet and an open patio area adjacent to the Town Park, at 149 Main Street in downtown Warsaw, across from Belle Ville Lane.

Mayor Randall Phelps stated he looks forward to seeing Warsaw’s growth continue. “With our increasing population, traffic counts, and the community’s need for additional dining options, we feel that these new restaurants will be successful additions to our town. We look forward to seeing these come to fruition and seeing what’s next on the horizon for Warsaw,” he said.

Each restaurant plans to be open by Spring/Summer 2020.
