After 10 years of operation in the city center, Tejas Grill & Sports Bar, 1201 Lamar, announced its closure on December 30.

The restaurant, which presented itself as the first sports bar in the city center, made the announcement on his Facebook page on Monday. A Tejas official confirmed he was suspending operations and not moving.

“We have been truly blessed to have met so many wonderful people and loyal customers over the years and you will miss seeing each other,” the restaurant said on Facebook. Tejas also announced that he sold “pretty much everything in the restaurant”.

The message gave no reason to close. The owner could not be reached for comment. According to its website, the restaurant is owned by George Carameros, who operated Don Patron Bar & Grill, 500 Dallas, from 1993 to 2016.
