The owners of El Charrito in Washington announced Tuesday that the Mexican restaurant has closed permanently after nearly seven years of business.

“Dear friends it is with great sadness that we have decided El Charrito will not reopen its doors for business,” a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page reads. “As you can imagine this was not an easy decision to make, but these have truly been trying times for us. We can’t thank you enough for all your support, for your kind words of encouragement, and for always rooting for us. Thank you for almost 7 years of making us a part of your special days whether it be a Birthday, Valentine’s, Mother’s day, first dates, and everything in between.”

El Charrito was located at 411 W. Fifth St.

“We will forever cherish all those memories,” the post continues. “Thank you for allowing us to serve our community and fulfill one of our dreams no matter how short lived it was. Gracias amigos from the bottom of our hearts.”
