Vernon’s Little Tex restaurant closes after nearly 30 years in business – Vernon News


After almost 30 years, a popular restaurant in Vernon will close for good.

Little Tex, an American-Mexican fusion restaurant, announced on Wednesday that it would close its doors.

The company first opened in the 1990s, but it turns out the pandemic was too much to handle.

“Well, folks, it’s time to say goodbye,” reads an ad on the restaurant’s Facebook page. “Each of our dear customers will be missed. ”

A GoFundMe campaign was created by customers in July to provide financial support. Although he did not reach his goal of $ 25,000, more than $ 5,000 was donated by members of the community.

Owners Tracy and Shamus Burrell bought the restaurant in 2018, and it’s been a tough road ever since. The closure of the road soon after the restaurant was purchased severely affected the business.

After the closure ended, the restaurant saw more customers come in, but the pandemic brought operations to a halt in March.

Little Tex will be holding an on-site auction on November 14 to sell home decor and kitchen supplies.

“You might like a souvenir or some handy kitchen equipment to remember us from,” the Facebook post explains. ” Till we Meet Again! “
