Billy D’s Coming This Fall

We are excited to announce Billy D’s is coming to McEwen this fall.  This new retail dining option will feature “hot ‘n’ crispy” fried chicken, sandwiches, and fixings including mac n cheese, garlicky butter beans and waffle fries.

Billy D’s is our first local restaurant/chef partnership with Chef William Dissen.  Billy D’s meets our commitments of responsibly sourced, made from scratch, locally procured, and additive free.
