Austin Tex-Mex restaurant El Chilito quietly closed its 6425 Burnet Road location without any notice on Monday, October 29.

An Eater tipster noticed that the Brentwood restaurant was no longer on El Chilito’s official website and its phone number is disconnected. An El Chilito staffer at the Manor Road restaurant also confirmed the shutter, who said that it closed because it wasn’t “busy.”

El Chile Group’s mini-Tex-Mex chain opened the Burnet Road location in 2016, after numerous delays. There are still three other locations in Austin: Manor Road, East 7th, and Manchaca.

El Chile Group isn’t new to restaurant shutters and switcheroos:

Along with the still-open locations of El Chilito, El Chile, and Yuyo, the El Chile Group also operates Barton Springs restaurant El Alma.
