The more unfortunate end of Austin’s rapid restaurant growth is closures — from long-standing spots to flashes in the pan. Here are three recent Austin shutters to know:

All Star Burger: The Westlake expansion of this Hill Country Galleria burger joint closed in January. A sign posted on the door revealed that the landlord had changed the locks due to nonpayment of rent. The restaurant had only opened in Davenport Village in January 2018.

Big Cat BBQ: The Cedar Park barbecue restaurant closed in February, after over three years in business. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, it will still do small catering orders.

Hooter’s: It looks like the breastaurant on Riverside has finally closed. Its Facebook and Yelp pages list the business as permanently closed, and calls to the business went unanswered. The building is being replaced by a 15-story mixed use development, set to open in sometime in 2021.
