Popular chain and Cracker Barrel rival to close restaurant in just days after 60 years leaving just one left in city

A POPULAR family restaurant is closing doors on one of its locations in just a few months, leaving only one in town.

In El Paso, Texas, one of the locations of Luby’s comfort food restaurant will be lost.

The restaurant at Mesa Street and Sun Bowl Drive will close its doors forever.

The Texas chain was founded in 1947 with a location in San Antonio that grew to over 40 statewide.

El Paso used to have a number of Luby’s restaurants, but after this closure there will only be one left.

Luby’s on Hawkins Boulevard will be pulling the brand around town.

The formwork site has been open since 1960 and only closed its doors briefly due to the pandemic.

Before the pandemic, Luby’s operated three locations in El Paso, and the one on Chelsea Street was the first to close in 2020.

The last closure of the legendary restaurant is on Easter Sunday, April 9th.

Luby’s was forced to close its Mesa Street location because the building’s owner wanted to redevelop it.

As reported by the El Paso Times, employees currently at the formwork site will be transferred to the remaining site.

Company President Calvin Gin wrote a letter to Luby’s location announcing the closure.

He said, “Your business is thriving at our North Mesa location.

“Unfortunately, the lease for this location will not be renewed.

“It is with a heavy heart that Sunday, April 9th ​​will be the last day of service from this location.”

In an interview, the president said the chain usually buys the restaurants and has bought 32 of them in 2021.

However, the site on North Mesa was not for sale, but they were able to operate the site.

“Some we couldn’t buy, and this was one of them,” he said.

Gin added: “As we continue to revitalize and grow the brand, we will be adding locations.

“There is no plan at the moment, but we definitely intend to continue to grow the brand in the future.”

Regulars at the restaurant mourned the loss of the page on Facebook.

One wrote: “So many memories of my family (grandparents!) here – it really saddens me!”

Another added: Luby’s was an expectation as I visited El Paso several times a year.

“My grandmother and aunt were always dressed and ready to go. Our favorite dishes have never disappointed us.”

The family restaurant is dear to the hearts of many who went there with some relatives who have since passed away.

“They were both my mother’s favorite places to go out and eat after church. I was just a dwarf then – RIP mom.”
