After nearly 40 years of business, a famed Dekalb restaurant is closing its doors for good.

Eduardo's Restaurant, 206 East Lincoln Highway, made the announcement on social media Thursday, December 5.

After 39 years of serving our community, we have decided to close our doors for the last time on December 20. While we are sad to go, we are looking forward to the new opportunities this will bring to our family. Please be sure to join us over the next 2 weeks to sip on a margarita, enjoy some fajitas and share more memories that our family has been able to offer to you, your friends and your families over the years. Many thanks to all of our amazing customers and staff, near and far, for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful community.

Reaction on social media from long-time Eduardo's diners mentioned the hard work, great service, and community efforts the restaurant has provided DeKalb.
