El Sapo, the Tex-Mex burger cantina from the El Chile Group, is now closed. Its last day was Friday, September 1. The restaurant moved from its original Manor Road home to West 10th Street earlier this summer.
There was no specific reason given for El Sapo’s shutter, but a rep for El Chile Group shared the following statement:
"We are sad to report that due to circumstances beyond our control, El Sapo will be closing permanently effective today. We want to thank our loyal customers for your amazing support.”
There are no plans to reopen El Sapo somewhere else.
El Sapo took over the space that formerly belonged to pig-focused restaurant Bacon. That restaurant closed last fall because of constant problems with flooding from Shoal Creek.
